The approach I have taken to automakers saying they are going to build something special and amazing—like the new electric Volkswagen Microbus, for example—is to believe it when I can see it on the dealer lot and a sweaty man in bad pleated khakis is vigorously attempting to get me to finance one. Not a moment sooner.

This is how I feel about the new Toyota Supra and any sort of Subaru BRZ that is able to outrun me on foot. We must remain skeptical, for we have been burned far too many times before.
