Looking good. If the new Z ends up disappointing me (no manual means I'm out), I'll be taking a hard look at the new 86.
Wow the renderings actually got it right. That's pretty impressive.Some big news making the rounds today. GR86 spy shots. Where are the new Z spy shots?

Compared to the outgoing 86 model below, it doesn't seem that different especially if you factor in how the top most part of the passenger side window curves.I don't know if it's just the angle of the rendering but the cabin seems a bit too tall for me, that or the hood is a bit too small. Aside from that it looks just like the spy photo.
That's true, i guess it's the hood that's throwing me off then.Compared to the outgoing 86 model below, it doesn't seem that different especially if you factor in how the top most part of the passenger side window curves.

Possibly. Plus the outgoing 86 can seat many 6-6'5 ft tall drivers so I doubt Toyota is changing that area much. Some improvement to aerodynamics would have been nice via a sleeker roof. Too late here. maybe the 400z?That's true, i guess it's the hood that's throwing me off then.
Based on what's been revealed so far the 400Z should be much sleeker than the 86/BRZPossibly. Plus the outgoing 86 can seat many 6-6'5 ft tall drivers so I doubt Toyota is changing that area much.
