The future of automible sucks, don’t you agree?

One word, hybrids.

This thought has been bugging me for quite some time, and this latest news regarding the delayed + redesign FT-86 for 2013 just killed me!

I know, I know, hybrid is for the better future, we need to protect the Earth and blar blar blar…. but damn, FT-86 in hybrid, that is just WRONG! T_T

The only automaker that still makes decent sport cars is Nissan, thank god for their GTR and then the new 370Z, respect!  Honda?  Their the first to produce the so called hybrid sport CR-Z, such a pussy car if you ask me, and many enthusiasts hated it, I’m no exception.  And for Toyota… aside from their ridiculously priced and super limited LF-A, there’s nothing worth expecting for, plus, who else could afford a LF-A if you ain’t a Sultan or something, anyone sane and had that much money would opt for Ferrari or Lambo, at least that’s what I’m thinking.  LF-A, though a very, very nice Super Car, still makes me wanna vomit, ugh!

JDM aside, what other choices do we have?  I can only think of a few, namely Hyundai, or USDM rides such as the Mustang, which has been receiving great reviews, but I’m not sure how it will be priced in Malaysia.  As for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, I personally think it is the next best thing closest to the Nissan Silvia series, no?

When Toyota first announced the FT-86, I had my eyes set on it and hoped that I could one day afford to buy one, now if the rumored news that I posted above is in fact true, then all my hope is lost, well, I guess the Genesis Coupe could be a pretty cool alternative option.

Seriously, think about it, FR light/midweight sports cars (not super expensive SUPER cars), what other options do we have?  The future for affordable sports car is looking very dim, that’s for sure…
