It looks to me like Supra is using the 340mm bmw brakes and not the 370mm brakes?

I dont think anyone would complain with that photoshop above, Pretty much a modern day Z4Coupe.... The interior with a steering wheel swap and a quick coding of the Infotainment and its pure BMW inside.[/quote]

some of tge trying too hard bulges vents creases remain though

a true z4 coupe would have a much cleaner look and at least one buyer for sure

Unfortunately all 3 series in the next gen are auto only, There isnt many manuals left.. The end is coming fast with Dual Clutch boxes being faster and more efficient albeit less engaging for us enthusiasts who prefer a manual.

I find it annoying that when I googled new Supra brake sizes every review includes the size of the nav screen on the Supra and none the brake sizes. That’s all people care about now is how big are the entertainment screens in their sports cars!?!?

No wonder they aren’t making an Manual... who has a hand for that when you are busy fingering apps on your giant nav screen.

So I made this collage. All the wheels are 19” and equaled for size. It looks to me like the 340mm front bmw brakes on the Supra.

I'm not sure what else the Supra could have been. A more Toyota/Lexus interior? A more Lexus feel to the ride? Even though they've proven that outside of the LFA have struggled to design a sporty suspension. The turbo has finally been embraced, and then there is the issue of engine design.

Developing an engine costs billions. In the case of a bespoke engine for a Supra, those billions couldn't be recovered since it wouldn't go into other vehicles across the family lines. To their defense, Toyota is working on electric motors and battery tech in R&D, so an engine for a sports car was likely far from their minds, thus this mashup.

I don't know, does seem weird that Toyota hardly touched the car under the hood. Guess they know that their fans really want a BMW.
Come on Toyota is the wealthiest car maker in the world and any I6 if they build one would have trickled down to there other cars. Lexus F cars would be the obvious answer.

What the mkv should have been you ask. 08 ISF, diet RCF or LC. Or the 2014 IS rwd with a proper engine.

Hell id rather they bring back the Supra as a full blow EV sports car with awesome performance then this turd.

It's no surprise they discontinued the it and didn't bother to do a new version, with sales numbers that low.

Had it not been for "That Movie(s)" the Supra would have probably been relegated to the dust bin of history, save for the precious few who owned / raced one of them. Now, it seems, just like there are more people who have claimed to been at Woodstock than ever went, seems that there are way more Supra "purists" than ever actually owned one. People have their torches and pitchforks out without ever actually driven the thing ... heck we haven't really gotten full reviews of it yet. But some people have made up their minds on the principle of the thing.

Seems that they must have appealed to people outside of the armchair purists, from what I've seen reported the first year's allotment is almost sold out already.

I'm not saying there are things I personally would want to see different about this car before I'd want to buy one. I do rather like the B58 and appreciate a RWD car with 50/50 weight distribution. But I'd rather less fake vents, manual, back seat and a usable trunk - but hey there's a car for that - a M240i and I already have one!

Let's say they built the car that the armchair purists wanted - it would have cost a whole lot more and basically would have been in the same segment as their Lexus LC, of which they sold like 12? It would be yet another car that folks appreciated existed, but hardly anyone actually bought. I was shocked to see how few of the new NXSeses have actually sold, even though as a former Acura guy I appreciate that they "did it right".

At the end of the day, we've got a new RWD sports coupe out there, that seems like it will sell well. Hopefully it will encourage car makers to keep making cars like that ... and they might get rid of some of the fake vents and add a manual in subsequent years.

Oh here's the article I mentioned, found it interesting.

http://www.thedrive.com/news/25959/w...oyota-gr-supra
Sales would have been fine but the Japanese economy took a dump Yen went up screwing exports. MKIV was to be 25/30k car but went u to around 40. that extra 15k was a colossal difference in early 90s to pay for a sports car.

It sold 45k in Japan alone. Exchange rate screwed sales every where else.

Supra is a legend cause it smashed everything the movie had shit all to do with it. Plus FF is the GTrs franchise not the Supras.

I like the NSX as you do, i just don't get who the hell its aimed at given the performance and price. Plus i wish it looked more like the predecessor and not so bland.

After seeing the new Supra objectively compared to some competition it doesn't really look that great.
Here is to hoping the driving experience blows us away.

Donít see it happening, eventhough many BMW enthusiasts have been asking for it since the last Z4M Coupe.

BMW priced it out of existence with a M40i starting price of $65k.

Cayman is fantastic on paper and worlds better actually driving. No offense, but the Supra and Z5 will be well off the pace of what the current cayman is doing and both will not hold a candle to the GT4 coming.

This is not Supra ,cheap try to cash in Supra name.
Comparing to 1993, this one have a 5HP bump after 25+ years, old one looks better than "new" one.

I owned a Supra MKIV TT before, during, and shortly after TFATF. I can guarantee you, that movie had a TON to do with the legend of the car. Very few people commented on the car before that movie. After the movie came out, rockstar status confirmed it was unreal. It also more than doubled the price I paid for the car used in a matter of months.
