    Yeah, but hairdressing is an ever-evolving art.

    YUP.

    Yeah, but IIRC you also said they'd never sell 15,000/year in the US and they're beating that. From all the discussions I've had the plan is to keep it moving on in the medium term, it's hitting sales targets and on the Toyota side of things has generated more positive vibe/press/whatever you want to call it than anything they've produced in decades. Subaru might drop out as they have other hero models but Toyota are highly motivated to keep it going.

    Well, that's a fact. It is literally the only interesting thing on the Toyota lot since the MkiV Supra got discontinued. If Honda and Toyota got together... nothing would happen, because they would both just fall asleep.

    Get that weak shit off my track

    Sure, of course there are cheaper cars. The Accent and Versa and Fit are all there. But it has the potential to slot in with a group of similarly-featured, similarly-purposed cars. Unless the thing is "tiny" (ha, like anything is tiny anymore) it'd probably feel at home with those midsized compacts (WTF?).

    Miata got away with what effectively was one inexpensive reskin over almost 17 years.

    Yep, silvia was the same, basically just reskins from S13 - S15

    Hell, a lot of people don't realize that there have only been three truly new designs of the Toyota Camry:

    1983-1991 (1st & 2nd gen)
    1992-2001 (3rd & 4th gen)
    2002-present (5th, 6th & 7th gen)

    Hell, Series 6-8 RX7's they didn't even bother to do a reskin! (which does say a lot about how damn right they got it when first released)

    It still looks fresh, sexy, and cool today. The design is so careful and precise that I love it with all of my body (including my pee pee).

    Damn, all this talk of RX-7s has me looking at local ones.
