    yea that was a little crazy but it's the only #1 2020 Supra ever to be built and the only one ever in that color exterior and interior. plus it was a charity car so there's that.

    I was also thinking Mazda when I saw the first pictures. I drive a Miata and like it a lot, but not for 50 grand and not with a hard top.

    I'm a little disappointed.
    Not with the BMW collaboration, BMW makes good stuff and this could've been awesome.

    There is no Manual option... a must for a 'drivers car' in my opinion.
    The motor should have been a 'slightly' de-tuned M3 inline turbo 6 (starts at 425hp). Not a completely neutered version, 335 would've been good 20 years ago...
    There doesn't appear to be a targa top, who doesn't want* their Paul Walker moment and eject their targa roof traveling 100 down a highway next to a semi....

    At that price point and weight you are comparable to a base Corvette which is putting down 455 hp and weighs about the same, and also has a 50/50 weight distribution.

    Remember... This is the mid grade Supra

    There's still the Supra GRMN which we don't know anything about yet, and I definitely hope the S55 or similar makes it into that engine bay

    Do I wish it had a Toyota Motor instead yes..... but so far with all the reading about the bmw motor doesn’t sound bad at all. I really like how the car looks, I’m pretty sure it will grow on everyone especially after doing mods etc....

    I'm not sure about the styling, its not a 100% hit with me, its one of those cars I need to see in person first, as the pics are kind of meh/weird, especially that aardvark front end.

    Main thing that pisses me off is this car is actually a BMW. Toyota whores out its most respected nameplate to BMW to build/design/test/engineer the car to their standards(or lack of standards IMO). BMW makes shit cars, reliability after the warranty runs out is horrendous. Maybe the new "Toyota" Supra won't be as bad, as the six cylinder BMW's tend to be a good bit more reliable and cheaper to own long term than the V8 and V12 BMW's.

    Main thing is if I wanted a BMW, I'll just go buy an M2 or 240M. If I'm buying a Toyota Supra, I want it to be a 100% engineered and built in Japan product by Toyota engineers.

    It angers me because Toyota has the RWD chassis tech, Lexus IS, GS, LS, RC, LC. Toyota Crown and Century are RWD and sold in Japan only. Surely they could have figured out a 2 seat RWD chassis from all the parts shared in those cars. They could have used the twin turbo V6 in the new Lexus LS. I know some would say V6 is hereasy because Supra was always inline six, but look at the sucess Nissan has had with the V6 in the R35 Skyline GTR. I'd much rather have a twin turbo Toyota V6 than a BMW inline six under the hood.

    I'll save everyone the read... new Supra is better in every measurable metric but...

    "There are two obvious ways the fourth-gen car is better in our eyes, though: It had that massive optional wing and an optional targa roof. The new Supra doesn't have either of those things. So we guess it's a tie, then."

    I'd add no Manual option which is really the deal breaker for me.

    While the ZF8 is as good as it gets with a auto, they could've just sourced the dual clutch from BMW's parts bin instead

    It’s a BMW with Toyota badges on it, that’s the deal breaker for me.

    I think it looks pretty good! If I lived in a part of the country where snow wasn't a thing, the Supra would be a consideration (along with a couple others from different manufacturers).
