I see G35's everywhere. The new "skyline" has been out for a couple of years now.

I wish people would call it the GTR, it's the "Skyline GTR"... Skyline = base model. GTR = 4wd turbo model.

lol

Engines are set to be 3.0- and 3.5-liter normally aspirated V6s matched to a six-speed close-ration transmission.
There goes my interest level

RWD for $30's and I'd be interested.... Toyota and Acura better hurry up with a decent coupe, or when it's time for me to buy I might be forced to go with a Mustang, BMW, or Infinti...

That's been covered here before I think.... Couldn't find the thread started by Gav (can't search on 3 character strings like CSX), but I did find this thread...

https://acurazine.com/forums/automotive-news-6/acura-csx-news-%2A%2A2012-information-page-7-%2A%2A-303518/

I thought CSX was going to the name of the Acura "civic" in canada...

Either way, the new supra is going to look good and it going to have the hp/tq to back it's image up... Toyota doesn't make many mistakes.

take this car...

add in HID's, new rims, updated stereo, interior refresh, and just the same marketing schem...

you will sell plenty...

replace the engine if you have issues with its cost...somethine like the is350's engine is fine, just tune it up a lil more and offer a trd supercharger....

Its funny because like I said in another post...Toyota over here in the UK...well they are pretty much look really sharp. Even the former Celica has a different nose/hood....looks really sleek and sexy.

And they have a sedan called the avenis...looks really sharp.

Its ToA that is really boring.

It looks good, but not as a Supra. A small cute yellow hard top convertable should not have the Supra name.
