You have to wonder if it was intentional on Toyotas part. That whole thinking youre not supposed to know but you find out makes it more exciting and spread the info and/or making you feel like an insider.
Gotta feed The Detectives, you know.

I assumed everything we found was intentional. Otherwise Toyota would've been going after some folks.

I don’t think so, because it was the old setup where the CE was called the Launch edition.

I think Toyota had too many cooks in the kitchen and had a few hiccups 😂

Also Toyota did basically the same thing with the FR-S launch. It had pricing from the Scion Xa or some crap in there.

It's really just incompetence on Toyota's part, not some master stroke of marketing genius. For a company that did what they did with Instagram if they wanted the staging server to be a leak it would have been a properly done leak, not something that was clearly.. well.. staging and not final. Or they would have screwed with everyone by saying it had 140hp.
