Redesigned Japan-Only GT86 Cb Looks Great, But Is 'For Women?' WTF?

Toyota announced a redesigned version of the GT86 (which we in the states know as the Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ) with a great-looking new front end that I think gives it the classic look of an old 240Z or an E-Type. It's called the Cb, which I'm told stands for "Cool Beauty." I'm also told it's "for women." Come on,… » 2/12/15 12:25pm 2/12/15 12:25pm

I think pretty much everyone agrees the BRZ/FR-S/Toyota 86 triumvirate is a good time on four wheels, and we're just at the cusp of what will likely be a vast ocean of race-bred variations. It looks like the Monsterization machines over in Fukishima Prefecture have been working overtime, and the result is the Super 86. » 3/11/13 3:32pm 3/11/13 3:32pm
