Always thought Toyota was amazing for putting that button in some of their vehicles. Just from a convenience perspective. But had NO idea this was how it was intended to be used until watching a video on YouTube about off-roading literally a few months ago. Genius.
Fun fact of the framed-window variety: nearly EVERY VW sold since the late nineties has had this feature built in but (for some insane reason) never widely advertised in any of their literature. A proper Easter Egg for savy owners, if you will. Read more

What am I seeing just forward of the rear-wheel wells? Are those intercoolers? Remote mount turbo kit maybe? Makes sense with mid-engine-emulating vents behind the doors but... that seems like a lot of engineering for a mostly cosmetic benefit.
Someone try and convince me that this isn’t Ferrari’s way of responding to the McLaren 570S without “responding.”
