Meh, I'd rather have a Toyobaru. This being said, I'm happy that "Found On Road Dead" has at least ditched the hideous faux-retro look.

BRZ's ok, but a little too underpowered for this commie killah. Maybe pull the trigger on a WRX.

Reminds me a bit of a Ferrari 250 GT. I wonder if they'll offer the V-12 from the Aston. Probably not, but it would be cool if they did.

I like the new Mustang as well. I think it looks much much better than the new Camaro. I like the new Vette as well but I think they have very distinctive personalities. I liken the Mustang to a Jeans and leather jacket look and the Vette to a Kakkies and button down. I think the Vette is a bit more elegant and the Mustang a bit more bad boy. Just my two cents.

Looks like an angry catfish. Would look better with a smaller grill and a different rear.

Yeah it does, lolz. You sure have quite a flair for words. But you shouldn't insult catfish that way.

A truck with a rear body similar to a BR-Z. Personally I'd rather have the real thing, not an oversized "Septic" copy.

All new ford sedans have a Aston Martin grill these days and the designers of the new Explorer had a real close look at Range Rover.
