Yeah but they generally have a massive hate for all things Lexus/Toyota. If its not a miata or a brown diesel wagon, they pan it.

Definitely cool to see, most of the tuner media tend to not pay any attention to Toyota (or when they do, they have no idea what they're talking about).

I wonder at what stage they decided to introduce the wide body version. It looks as if the car was originally designed to be narrow body. IIRC the wide body cars have the same track widths as the narrow bodies. It's a shame because they could have improved upon the weight transfer. It seems as if they left so much performance on the table from the factory.
