This is the Toyota HQ, side entrance by the looks of it. Looks like the same Core prototype from the event.
I highly doubt there are more than 3-4 GR Corollas in existence right now, and even the ones shown at the FD event weren't complete (lacking proper dashes, buttons etc). I suspect it'll be a couple of months before we see a "final draft" of the car.

We've got a press photo of a white Corolla. It ain't much, but it's better than 0.

Nice picture. As a fan of red cars, this color makes me sad. I'll reserve final judgment until I see it in person. I'm generally not loving shades that fall in the category of old man red (and being in my late 40s I'm probably considered old lol). If you're going to do red go for it and make it bright.

Don't get too down based on a harshly-lit cell phone photo through a windshield. I think it'll look nice, that's my pick if I'm not getting a circuit spec.

(y)I hear you on that one but I watched the reveal and lots of reviews on YouTube. Under professional lighting on the perfect angle I I think it's passable. Short of that on regular angles it looks very mediocre.

That being said I wouldn't be ready to totally dismiss it yet if I buy this car.

Fun fact, yesterday a Black GR Yaris was spotted at Longo Prosper.

Guess who the drivers were? Saito-san, the Chief Engineer of the GRY, and Sakamoto-san, the Chief Engineer of the GRC.

The car is a pre-production Mexico-spec GRY, with a 000/300 badge inside. Toyota USA appears to have requested it from Mexico so both of the engineers could cruise around Dallas and compare to the Corolla on American roads. I hope they didn't mind the construction on Dallas North Tollway. :)
