Here comes yet another bold new Camry

Since the dawn of the internet, literally every single Camry generation has been trumpeted with the same word track about abandoning the plain styling of the previous generation, even though the previous generation was supposedly far sexier than the one before that. To wit:

“Remember when Nissan and Toyota made four-door sedans that, despite being as dependable as the sun and as trouble-free as an anvil, were sort of dumb-looking? It’s time to file those memories away with your eight-track tapes and your Bob Dylan records. The times have indeed changed, and there’s no more stunning example than the new Toyota Camry.”

1997 Camry: “The designers have mixed in some sporty cues to give it a more youthful appeal and to help separate it from its larger Avalon cousin.”

2018 Camry: “Previous Camrys have been white bread.” — Toyota engineer. “For Toyota, the overhaul of the Camry has transformed a “vanilla” sedan into a small ice cream cart of flavors.” — Automotive News

What’s the point of this post? Toyota may have finally exhausted their “This time it’s different” pitch after milking it for — oh, let’s see — twenty-five years. Tesla is about to build something that’s truly different, for not much more money. What if Camry customers catch wind of this?
