whatever.. still doesn't change the fact that Toyota are back in the mainstream sports car segment, while other Japanese car manufacturer all do not participate in this segment. Preferring to offer stale and boring cars like crossovers, & sedans or NSX supercars that costs 1.2mil RM 2nd hand and nobody will buy...
If I'm going for a drive, give me a two door sports car anyday.. With Supra & 86, Toyota are the undisputed kings. Period.
they are not "back in the mainstream sports car segment", they were never "in" it here in Malaysia.
I give them credit for co-developing the 86 but not for the Supra because saying otherwise would be like saying Proton deserves massive credit for the new Perdana and also the X70's "design".
You obliviously chose to ignore the likes of Nissan and Subaru (just to name a few). Not bringing certain models into Malaysia doesn't mean they are lame, it just means you cannot afford it. If people are complaining that an Accord costs nearly RM200k then chances are they are more comfortable in the Persona segment.
You need to understand, good things aren't cheap and cheap things aren't good. Taking the NSX as an example (since you mentioned it), are you even aware of the amount of engineering works that goes into that thing? You wouldn't buy because they are not expecting people like you to buy - it's like asking Rolls Royce to make people like you their targeted customer.
Not just you, "IF" anyone who wants to go for a drive, would prefer a proper engineered sports car but the question you need to ask yourself before making that assumption, can you afford it.
Funny how it seems that you included the term "period" at the end of your sentence, as if you hold some sort of finite authority.
