    Neither am I, but it would be great if some more cars showed up.

    I look forward to the game using the GR Yaris for Race A once, maybe twice

    Been noticing my Custom Race pre-race screen is black. Ever since this announcement. It's happening in a couple of my alt accounts as well. All the info appears on screen, but the track camers are off and no car audio. I press the "Start" icon and the screen countdown is fine. Just the cars going around doesn't show.

    Shut down my PS4, turned it off, tried doing the same with Rest Mode. MAybe something to do with the update. I did see some players mentioned the servers were down around Thursday or Friday.

    For a year full of surprises, it's good to see a good surprise in 2020! Great addition to the game.

    Now, how about turning that engine around and putting it in a lighter weight stripper Supra?

    Since PD recorded 600,000+ sales for the Supra, wonder if the GR Yaris will surpass that.

    Unplug the power and hdmi cables from the PS4 after you power off, as well. Also, rebuild the database.

    Edit: I'm also a little surprised that no one's pointed out (or at least I've missed it) that the update happens to the day after PS5 releases to the public. There has to be some sort of correlation there, even if it's just cleaning up or insuring forward compatibility.

    I doubt the average person is more interested in a Yaris than a modern take on an iconic car.

    Put it this way, it's in the same N-class as the '19 Supra. Last Yaris we got, was th 7-speed auto( in GT5?). The average "player" (just replaced that word) is going to buy the GR Yaris, regardless if they buy and sell I straight after. However many people will be gifted it, in the DWG(those freebies apparently count as a sale - ref. Supra survey).

    The Time Trial brings more awareness to the average player. Smart marketing. So, if the average player never heard of this car, they will on Friday.

    I think you can well judge on the reception the GR Yaris made simply by the amount of "internet press" the car already has.

    Enthusiasts are interested in this car. I do get that PD seems to almost be one of the press wings of GR Toyota at this point.

    Not gonna lie even though the car is known now, I miss him doing the car silhouettes thing and it's nice to see it again after a while.

    Same here. So I hope... think... this is a Yaris sticker on the side of the '00 Castrol Supra JGTC :D .

    GR Yaris is high performance? more like "high economical", this car's definitely earning a spot on my pointless car thread.
    If there's something I've been wanting for a long time, it's a Ram SRT-10 an a Testarossa

    Imagine calling it pointless already when the car hasn't been added to the game yet

    Good to see that the man himself is excited about this car.

    it's just an addition to the N100 or N200 lineup, I'm yet to see if I really meant calling this car "pointless" when the update comes. Out let's just hope that it has a stick-shift and not those modern Paddles.

    "I don't want it so nobody wanted it" - the post

    Take your thinking and apply it to the fact no one gives the slightest damn about the Ram SRT-10 and you'll have an idea how self important your post reads as.

    Personally I've wanted the GR Yaris since it was announced IRL and, knowing PDs special relationship with Toyota, was pretty hopeful it'd appear.

    You know, as opposed to a truck.

    as I said in the post on top of this, I'm yet to see if I was a Dumbass calling this pointless or not. And yes no one cares about Dodge putting a supercar engine into a truck, but I'm a fan of these SRT-10 machines.

    plus it's just my opinion about the car itself, others may agree or disagree with what I said

    Imagine saying a GR Yaris is pointless and ask them to add a Ram SRT 10 in the same time :D

    It has a stick shift, three pedals, a turbo, AWD, 18"x8" BBS wheels and a convenient hatch - probably Apple Carplay too. I think the Ford Escort Cosworth was the last affordable three-door rally-inspired AWD hot hatch.

    wasn't there a purple-blue one too?

    @Brown TE37s Cherokee SRT would have made more sense imo.

    "No one" then if I'm not one can I be 500 for how much horsepower the Ram SRT-10 has?

    *N300 but does it matter? You are using the same mindset PD used to design the N class system and look how well that turned out. Performance is a package made by many different factors and based on the specs posted above by @05XR8 looks like the GR Yaris can make the Testarossa wish it wasen't made.

    You... do know this isn't a regular Yaris/Vitz five-door hatchback, right?
    N300. The regular GR Yaris has 257hp, and this High Performance model (it's the car's actual name) has 268hp. That's N300, as it's between 250 and 349PS (246-344hp).
