    That's pretty large, I can see why it could create packaging issues. I would love to hear some more details on the engine (like weight!), but this will do for now. Can't wait for more.

    @horsepwr1: They've been teasing it for less time than Toyota teased the GT-86, and a hybrid turbocharged mid-engine supercar is a heckuva lot more complicated than a front-engine, RWD small basic sports car, so I think they're still alright. This has al
