197 HP is decent, but there are other 2.0L NA engines that have achieved higher HP (Honda's F20C from the S2000 is one). But obviously, Toyota wasn't trying to shoot for the most. And there's going to be plenty of potential for the engine in the aftermarket for sure.thats what a 2.0L typically makes. on the bright side, 200hp (or is it 197?) is pretty high for an engine this size.

How big of a difference does it really make? My Avalon would still beat it^That's like the old Cavaliers back in the day. Remember those black bumpers?
I was hoping for torque around 165-170 ish. I don't like gutless wonders. My 95 Mustang might only have a paltry 145 hp, but that 215 ft. lbs. makes a big difference.
Is that a rear foglight I spy? Or just a reflector made to look like one?
Looks like the low spec is a tuner's platform to which they can swap the steelies for alloys of their choice and ditto the bumpers.the bumpers arent even painted on the low-spec?
I wonder if they'll make two versions of it; I remember in 2007, Scion began offering the tC in a "Spec" version, where the tC was stripped of some features, notably the glass moonroof, cruise control and was given 16 inch wheels with hubcaps. That model only sold for two model years before being discontinued because it just didn't sell (not to mention that many tuners weren't interested in it to Scion's dismay).Somehow I doubt we'll get the unpainted bumpers, door handles, mirrors, in the US. Even the Yaris has standard color-keyed goodies and it's just easier to make them standard. That, and it looks effing terrible.
All TRD USA has to do is import the darn things and make sure they fit the FRS, since they don't have any money in their budget to R&D their own parts :lol:
The price will make or break this car, especially when the BRZ is going to be around too.And hopefully it won't be too overpriced :lol:
