Don't forget about the Tacoma; I bought mine with a manual. I would really like to get the current MX-5 someday, such a great little driver's car.
Reminds me of my parents old Trooper with a manual. Always felt like it had escaped the bean counters review. Great unit.

Australia will also be I6 only, and they are getting less then 500 units for the 1st year.

A different take on the 2020 Supra

If only this guy would have been on the design team, I would have gladly parted with my money for a new Supra.

I would much rather have a Supra with the Z4 nose.

Just saw this ad, consistent BMW ad placement throughout:



If you need a new toy for your car company, I guess it is a no brainer asking BMW M to handle the heavy lifting. At the end of the clip, that BMW I6 sounds fantastic, so thats a bonus.

WOW that is absolutely STUNNING!!!

Just a few minor changes make a huge difference, and you can see the MKIV lineage clear as day on that one. Bravo!

I believe all of BMW's B58's will/have benefited if true. Think about this, they started collaborating in 2012, the B58 wasn't released until 2015. Highly likely if what Tada has said in interviews is true that toyota may have helped out with quality stuff. Its been said in interviews that BOTH Toyota and BMW learned something from one-another during testing. Toyota saw how much actual road testing, etc BMW did and BMW saw how much quality testing Toyota did on individual parts/components.

You know what would be ironic? That the new "Zupra" is super reliable like a Toyota should be, and the new Z4 is about as reliable as a BMW gets.
