I'd hit it. I'm going to be curious to see the final specs on this, and to see what the differences between the Subaru and Toyota version will be.

I'd like to see what happens with this. I haven't been able to take Toyota seriously lately. I'd still like to see another NSX moreso than this. I can understand the market is just looking for cars to get from point A to B, but add some type of excitement to the line-up. But the interior is kinda crazy lookin' for my tastes.

The interior does look a little funky, but it's in the concept stage and they always make the interior look really flashy and weird at first. I highly doubt they'd use that as the final interior.

But then again it's a sporty Toyota, not a sporty Audi or Mercedes-Benz, so it's natural that it's more "youthful".

I could have one if it wasn't so expensive. If I can ever afford one, it'll be when I have a house, dog and 2.3 children and am looking for a beige Volvo station wagon...

i agree. i love the looks of this car, but the interior has to go NOW

Toyota gets flak for making appliances on wheel.
Toyota gets flak for going overboard on their concepts.

Mr. Toyoda is seriously about bringing passion back into the company and I think this is the first step in the right direction.
