    It is so strange, badass car but only sought after by a few badasses...

    Would anyone like to see a design analysis from Road & Track? I have an old anthology of R&T magazine articles devoted to Toyota GTs and it includes some interesting notes, pictures and history too. It follows the CelicaSupra from inception in three articles to the last model. It includes a review of the MK III, too.
    Post it up Kenny... Im not sure Ive seen this R&T analysis. I have the Sports and GT book but I dont recall a study of design.

    Oops almost forgot another one. I believe the rear side markers of the 2000GT inspired the US-spec side markers as well...

    I dont know the origin of these photos, but I think Rosso posted them here a couple years ago... early Toyota design sketches are very hard to come by, so I find these most interesting:

    The Lotus Excel had no impact on the MA61 design, but its kinship (astetically and mechanically) cannot be denied.
