I came dangerously close to buying a GR86 back in November to the point where I was about to walk out the door, go to my local dealership, test drive one they got in, and buy it on the spot pending the test drive wasn't particularly underwhelming. However, what stopped me was I'd already decided I'd need to mod this car a decent amount to make it the car I really wanted it to be, but more than that it's a Subi at the end of the day. I don't hate subis, but they've never been my thing. I've always been partial to Toyotas, Hondas, and to a lesser extent Nissans since the early 2000s, and Subaru has just never clicked with me. I wanted a car engineered and created by one of these companies from the ground up and the GR Corolla (or GR Yaris before it) was the one that checked all the boxes I wanted. I'm sure the GR86 is an incredible car to drive, but it's not a Toyota despite what the badge says. Same with the MK5 Supra. I entertained an FK8 Type R as well, but AWD vs FWD is what sways me towards the Corolla.
