i am sure they are mostly around... i think MR2 guy was doing Yaris.

Problem was never the designers but what they were told to design. For instance Denzo did Prius and then he did FT-86.

Toyota has been teasing us with that freaking Ft-86 like Honda has been with a "new" NSX for awhile now.. At this point Toyota needs new blood and newer people that can wear a decent haircut or at least be bold enough to go with the Mr.Clean look.. Get some Balls Toyota!!

Looking forward to Toyota producing non-bland cars.

I can't stop looking at his hair.

If he is an artist, I don't hold his choice of hair against him...

A PR head or CEO however, should definitely look presentable at all times.

Vanilla sells and quite frankly I prefer vanilla than OMG ugly chocolate squirrel nuts with cow toes green mint tea leaves pizza flavored ice cream. I prefer bland to ugly, period.

The Rav-4 is a nice example of a good looking SUV. The problem is people hate Toyota and rather fap off to anything else.

I rather hold a conversation either on the phone or face to face with my friends.

I interpret his look as individualize and doing his "own" thing, not caring about outside opinions.

So it's a 50/50 shot, either a home run in design or major misses (e.g., Pontiac Aztec, Isuzu Axiom). For sure, no boring in-betweens by the looks of this guy.
