Under 4100lb and being low 500hp, it will be acceptable. Don't forget that it may get 4 wheel steer and torque vectoring.

I assume so as well. They probably don't want to talk about the new NSX yet since it's still being finalized.

I didn't read the detail, but this car will have close to 900hp? What? I like what I'm seeing. Maybe it's their high end GT supercar?

But that uncrackable ECU. There will be a lot of work for a tuner to unlock that thing. And I don't think tranny designed to hold 250hp~ can hold anything over 350hp. If Toyota can tune the 2.0L...

So they already RICE it out from factory? I'm a big fan of NX, but this completely turnd me off. That wacky widebody belongs to a Hyundia Accent or Honda Civic, not a Lexus.

We Asians love that rear. Well.... I don't. I can see it being toned down in production form or maybe not. Still better than pre-refreshed overall.

Bigger, lighter wheel reduces rotating mass. This could be the case here. Though with so much more power and suspension tuning, a single lb per wheel wouldn't matter much.

If AMG can make 350 hp out of 2.0L, I don't think Ford and its performance arm can't do more with 2.3L. I have no doubt it will beat GT with the right mods, but I also would like a factory warranty.

Hope there is a high performance trim for Ecoboost. They can get more power output from 2.3L. :D

I was correct about teaser under blue sheet was indeed NC, not ND. This is what source at Miata.net has been told.

Source also told that base engine 1.5L will make more power than out going 1.8L....

Stop trolling, Hoovey. You know GT86 and FR-S are basically the same car. :P BRZ at least has different front bumper and headlight. I'm a ft86club regular, we all call them twins.

But it's going to be 400lb heavier than Miata with only 20hp more. New Miata will outrun the twins easily. They need to stop messing around and release turbo version already.

Subaru FA20DIT is making ~300hp ~300lb/tq in Japan while getting 30mpg. I really would like the engine in refreshed GT86/BRZ.
