Hopefully the supercharged version will be in the 5.5 second region, otherwise its a waste of time.

Rather get a brz or the new GTI or the new Opel OPC or the new ST...... damn the competition is tough!!

Makes me wonder what the guys at toyota were thinking.Why spend all the money,time and effort into developing a vehicle like this,only to choose a slow engine to go with it.It defies all reason.There is alot of strong competition,like sas said.Serious buyers first look at the performance of cars in this segment.They did a great job in the styling,body and handling department,and this is what is selling the car atm imo.

Re: Gents anybody planning on getting a GT86 ?

Took delivery of my (second hand) 86 last Thursday. WOW ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/neutral . The dude who delivered it from Nelspruit said it was the best car he had ever driven. I second that too. Just so nimble compared to my old X RSi even though that got 161 kw ATF. This things handling and low down torque just keep you smiling, not to mention traction control for peace of mind! Only thing to worry about is the servicing price list.  ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/smile

2003 X ECU upgraded, Eibach 40mm drop springs, Powerbrake disks & Ultimate pads, 63mm mandrel bent 2 box S&N exhaust,  Motorcade CAI, UnichipQ.
135 kW & 177 N.m ATW.
