Isn’t it kinda unusual to see such a sudden CEO transition like this?

Looks like a Toyota-language-focused future RAV 4 (which the BZ4X is) to me in the same way the Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ are just a rebadge/re-fender of each other but clearly the design leans much further towards Toyota. Doesn’t surprise me that Toyota stuck to the Yoke, they seem very interested in gimmicks to differentiate themselves, e.g. the multitude of screens in a Prius.
BZ4X for ref:

If you’re an arcade racing game purist, Burnout Paradise has a lot to answer for. By taking the classic series open-world, Criterion essentially obsoleted the concept of traditional racers — here are your cars, here are your tracks, learn to drive the former to perfect the latter — at least in the eyes of major publishers. Ever since, virtually all big-budget arcade racing games have been made in the shadow of Paradise, with most tracks consisting of lines drawn across vast, explorable maps.
Wouldn’t the key example here but not Burnout Paradise but NFS Underground 2, which launched 4 years earlier with the same concept but is even more iconic and respected? Most U2 races happen in explorable places and the Underground Racing League even takes the place of the showcase events.
Otherwise I agree with every line here, just a thought.
