Anyone else excited for it? Toyota claims it will be able to compete with the Evo, WRX, i30 N, Focus Mkr 3 and Golf R with only one cylinder less!

Very well good sir, in that case a i30 N Sedan will suite you better.

The GR Corolla will be as consequential to me as the GR Yaris was. Do i think more sports cars on the market is neat? Yes. Will I ever have a spare $50,000 to put towards one/will I ever trade in? No.

Also I'm not sure how to feel about a Yaris engine in a heavier platform, even if it has more power to compensate. Will be good to see more Turbo sports bois on the market though. Also I don't see much point to trying to make power on that platform when even aftermarket intercoolers look like they have barely any surface area and will heat soak after 5 minutes of hard driving.

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
>260horse/270lbft turbo three pot

Yeah, sure, I like rebuilding engines more than driving.

tbh reliability has come a long way in general and Toyota has had a reputation for reliability in their sports car engines since learning their lessons with 5m and 7m engines. Motive Video are putting 280Kw (370 odd hp) to the wheels in a GR Yaris, chasing north of 300Kw/400hp and haven't blown it up yet, despite regular track work.   

Edit: they're now pushing 352kW or 480ish hp to the hubs so I guess they'll be the first ones to fuck around and find out how strong an unopened 1.6 3 cyl is lol
