I'm right there with you, but remember this car is for the masses who watch the EPA ratings on the sticker.

Most import cars can be in the upper RPMs on the highway depending on gearing. My Altima was at 3k at 85mph and my Accord about 500-700rpm higher than that. I'm sure a re-tune can quickly fix that if you want the power.

But the torque curve is actually quite nice, coming on strong and just staying there. Reminds me of a Mercedes engine.

That orange looks just like the Corvette "atomic orange". (at least in the pics)

it does look pretty close... i think the Atomic Orange is a touch more toward the copper side though.. great color either way.

If I were to buy one, orange would be my color. It looks fantastic on the Corvette, especially in the fall. The Toyobaru will be no different.

I just got off the phone with Bill Penney Scion. They said the grey one just got delivered today and they may have one more showing soon.

I have a test drive tomorrow night at 6pm at the dealer.

Whoever else wants to come take a look with me come on out. Ahem. Beck.

Haha well I told Samir about this as well so this might turn into a little shindig and introduction to the FT-86.

Anyone is welcome to come and see the car and possibly test drive it themselves. I'm sure the sales people won't mind the interest in the car.
