The 2nd generation TSR Itakara (2003-2008)
The 1st generation were criticized by being too small. TSR had that in mind while designing the second generation. The 2nd generation was now bigger and more powerful, but heavier at the same time. This is the only generation with a coupe body style. TSR always have safety in mind. With the advanced crumpling zones, the car is now very heavy and also more expensive. But, families are now happier because of the increased size. Now, every trim has an optional all-wheel-drive system (except for the RS, having AWD as standard).
This is the Standard. It is equipped with steel wheels as standard. The NA 2.5 litre Inline 4 produces 177HP. The geared LSD is standard as always.
This is the Sport. It now has alloy wheels as standard. The engine now produces 205HP. The suspension is now sportier.
This is the Turbo. The engine now produces 300HP. The rims are now an inch bigger with a sportier suspension. Most trims are now blacked out.
This is the RS, released in 2005. What is special about this one is that is only available as a coupe. Which means that it is now for the true drivers. AWD is now standard and the engine now makes 338HP. Every trim pieces are now blacked out. The grill is exclusive to the RS.
Nowadays, these cars are cheap as hell due to low desirability. It means that a lot of high school students buy these cars. But occasionally, these are transformed into monster sleeper cars. The 2.5 litre Inline 4 has a great tuning potential. But, they are also swapped with all kinds of engines like the V6 from the 3rd generation Kansai for example. Many RS versions are used for street racing, mostly in Japan, and motorsports. Production ended in 2008, 5 years in production, making it the most short-lived generation of the Itakara ever.
