now that the 2nd generation has been released, does anyone know if the toyota version will have a regular speedometer instead of the digital one like in the new BRZ?

also, will the toyota one have the option to choose the key ignition, instead of the push start button? the push start button is a huge no go for me. anything electronic will break down.. gotta keep that shit simple..

No idea yet. We'll have to wait and see I guess.

I feel like it'll be the same, but that's just me.

And have you had bad experience with push button ignitions before? Never had an issue here. I loved it on my old S2000.

the same as the previous gen, or the new gen?

i never used push start button, but i know that they arent as reliable as the good ol' standard key ignition. anything electrical will break. the more useless bells and whistle they use, the more problems... gotta keep that shit simple. if it works, then dont change it.

just like german cars. so many useless things they keep adding every year and they always have a check engine light.

hopefully they will make the key ignition standard and make the push start optional. if not, then that is a huge no go for me.

and this is coming from a millennial ,lol.

Well Subaru was responsible for the chassis and engine and I think Toyota was responsible for the exterior and interior design. Therefore I think that the push button is hear to stay along with the digital speedo. I can tell the reason for the push button. If you remember GM had a huge law suit for its ignition switches on some of its models. They were designed in such a way that the tumbler would jam if a person had too many keys on their key ring causing (I believe) the car to either turn off or go into a neutral mode resulting in loss of steering and braking control. There were a number of fatal accidents. From that law suit most major car manufactures adopted the push button transmission. The digital speedo is probably cheaper to make then a regular old fashion one.

I predict an analog speedo because the BRZ was always positioned as the premium option among the two.
