and yet also, other parts NOT all over the place - they left a lot on the table for tuning companies: fake vents which can be converted to functional for power gains, airbox shaped such that a stiffening brace can be added / integrated seamlessly (and threaded holes pre-drilled for said brace), stiffening of rear hatch to accept a wing but none OEM, leaving a dedicated space to mount a diff cooler etc etc. and of course the de-tuned engine.

some chatter about how toyota did this either to A) have low hanging fruit for the next version, or more likely, B) make $ by selling aftermarket tuning bits their own damnselves.

No way they are going to make the ugly door vent functional, though.
