"definitely something completely different from what XRAY has been up doing until now (different from touring cars)..."
That scentence isn't written well. It is very unclear and it's too easy to take different meanings from it. Maybe that's what they wanted. Or maybe someone who speaks broken english wrote it
It does not say it is not a touring car. Maybe that is what they meant but that is not what it says. It says it is different from what they have been doing, which happens to be touring cars. I interpret this to mean they are doing something different than what they have been doing with
touring cars. A shaft drive touring car would be different. See what I'm saying?
I do not think it is off-road for the reasons already mentioned. The wheels and tires scream touring car to me though. I'm not sure a new touring car would be the best idea for them but whatever. I'm going to get my T1R next week and forget about this new car until some acutal (or at least clear, full) pictures are out:lol
