The new GS and GT 86 are just the first in a new line of sportier driver's cars IMO. Hopefully soon, I can get the chance to evaluate and maybe purchase a GS-F in the near future. May be even a full line-up of F-Sport and TMG performance accessories.

F-Sport = AMG (mainstream performance) ?
TMG = Black series (hardcore performance) ??

One can only dream.....

YES, timing is good for me too, i think it'll be about 5 years before we're able to purchase one.

I wonder if this has to do anything with recent announcement of partnership with BMW? At any rate, can't wait!
