music is weird

the tires look super skinny.....maybe 205 at most?

^^ Agreed music is a terrible choice for this vid. Not to mention this looks way to much like a nissan.

I enjoyed the videography ( I watched it on mute ) ... ABSOLUTELY HATE THOSE WHEELS!

katalyst 11-30-2011 03:40 PM

the stance is really high too imo, will look good with fatter tires and less wheel gap

but that just means there will be aftermarket options for it.

I'm nearly decided that I am going to try to pick one up when it comes out. Honestly I prefer the look of the Scion, but I think those will be everywhere.
I also hate the wheels, but I'd probably want to swap them regardless.
Think there will be mark-up on the first few that hit dealers? I wouldn't think so since the Scion should be held to their Pure-Pricing creed.

No turbo no care.

I may consider it as well. I really would like to know how much different the
motor will be than say what's in the WRX/STi. If doing a swap isn't too bad,
the price may still be worth doing a transplant and not wait for the turbo
version.

Just saw a clip with the Scion with a tach reading up to 9k. Could this be
on a boxer motor stock? The styling may be hit or miss, but I think the
mechanical engineering of Subaru and Toyota may actually work.

And by the way, those whining about it not having a turbo, you need to
drive a high revving 4 that is light and can corner. I guarantee you that
you will be surprised with this car. Being able to hold gears through long
sweepers is key on the track.

More specs on the car. It sounds like its going to be wicked slow. Only 200 HP at 7000RPM!!!! 150lbs/ft torque at 6600 RPM. No turbo and engineers claim it would be very difficult to add one. This car looks to be all show and no go. Very sad.

mtcookson 11-30-2011 07:16 PM

Those numbers are estimates but are poor estimates. They estimate 170 tq from 6400 to 6600 rpm... 170 ft. lb. torque at 6400 rpm equals 207 hp at 6400 and at 6600 equals 213 meaning the peak 200 hp at 7000 isn't actually the peak. :lol:

Holding tight to see what actual numbers are, I bet they will be better than that.

Also they say they can't fit a turbo in there. Its cause they are doing it wrong. That thing is direct injected meaning they could easily do an idea I've always had for the boxer engine (well, any direct injected engine really)... intake manifold on bottom, turbo manifold on top. Allows for a very short turbo manifold, plenty of room, and since heat rises should keep substantially less heat out of the intake manifold. Oh well... :(

sorry, i couldn't get the video to embed and thought i cancelled the whole post. But i guess it posted anyway.:confused:

This thing is going to be a hoot to drive. It's only slightly larger than an MX-5 and has a more torquey engine.
