    The FT-86 may be faster around a track, but the facelifted GC is just more stunning for me. Better highway cruiser too.
    Where did you get that idea? The GC 2.0T is faster on the track. And if you say FT86, that's the concept car LOL.

    yup, the gc is faster. the 86 wasn't built to be fast it was built to show people that you can still have fun with a car without needing too much power.

    Nakakuha ako sa Toyota Alabang. Not quite a brochure but a back-to-back full color spec sheet with nice photos. But since the 86 is sold out, the only purpose for the brochure is pamaypay on a hot day.

    I thought yabang lang yung claim na selling like hotcakes all over the world. Top Gear Australia says it's also sold out down under, all 400 units as of May 2012: Toyota 86

    Yup, The 86 was meant to have more of a balance of a good chassis and "adequate" HP. Something to use to learn how to push a car's dynamics without killing the driver with too much HP under the hood.

    In other words, para kay Richard Gutierrez.

    Well, actually it's a sports car for 99% of us "normal" drivers.

    Given what we practically spent all of our driving life in a FWD econo-sedan, an ubber powerful RWD sports car would probably end up getting us killed if we tried to power through the first corner. It happened to me when I drove a Nissan 200SX years ago and it doesn't take much to get the rear to slide too.

    seen that happen a lot gh. guys who never drove a rwd sports car or any real sports car (no your SiR isn't a sports car) at all and daily drive a fwd econo box, thinks his experience and years of driving is enough to drive fast and push the car to it's limits. ayon usually 1st corner oversteer agad. :bwahaha: di porket 10-20 years na kayo nag drive ibig sabihin pwede na kayo kumarera. when it comes to pushing a car over it's limits, it requires an experience and training that is a lot different than your 10-20 years experience of daily driving.

    I agree with you both. Just being facetious about the R. Gutierrez remark. He can afford five 86s and practice with them til he can let loose in a Nissan GTR again. In the case of owning sports or performance cars, I don't know if it's just me coz I seem to have seen more WRX STi's, Porsches, even BMW X5s being flogged on the skyway than Gen Coupes. I guess the "normal" guy who goes for a sub P2M sports coupe would rather experience the joy of cruising rather than speeding.

    Driving a super car on a straight piece of concrete is relatively easy.

    It takes skill and experience to make a car handle through the twisties.

    And a great handling car need not to be expensive and full of driving "aids".
