I feel a Camry Prime will be more likely than GR Camry. We heard about a "GR RAV4" before, but it didn't happen and the RAV4 got the Prime instead. Fast straight line speed but not much about handling.I wish they would do a GR Camry with AWD. Torque steer has been one of the things holding that car back - throw a tuned turbo 4cyl under the hood with sport suspension and this AWD system, and it would be a killer and "family man" enthusiast's dream.
Camry is quickly becoming one of the last cars standing in the midsize segment so... why not?
All GR cars are designed to be raceable. There is no series for a GR Camry to race in.
What you just described will definitely not come at 45k USD😂Take the supercharged V6 engine from the Lotus Emira and slap that in the hood of the Camry. You could detune it, but a 400 horsepower Camry would be such a flex.
Then, take either the Highlander's Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD system, or try to fit the GR-Four AWD system under it.
Chuck in the 6-speed iMT manual transmission. Use the brand new 8-speed automatic that's being developed for the GR Yaris and GR Corolla. But primarily make it in a manual.
Give it a LSD.
Stiffen the chassis and give it a more capable suspension system. Don't cheap out on the brakes either.
The closest you will get would be the Crown with 2.4T E-Axle hybrid.
