New Supra - Final release pics

Recommended Posts

I feel it’s lost the magic the original Supra had. And when you learn that it’s just a reworked BMW Z4 with the same engine and a running gear, the last remaining bit of magic is gone. 

Toyota have had so many opportunities in the past few years but they seem to be failing miserably in the sports car department. The GT86 was massively hyped but in reality, it was a million miles away from the AE86. Ive driven a few and every time I was left disappointed. It was marketed as a drift missile but it’s impossible to get a good drift out of it if you have an ounce of mechanical sympathy.

Indeed. Whatever happened to sleek, sexy curves. 

Even Hyundai are doing better with the Genesis Coupe. Might not have the same performance but it’s a better looking car for a third of the price.

Check out Shmee's YouTube channel he posted the indepth inside and outside tour of the A90.

And yeah looks like a generic Toyota. They all look the same now. Twice this week I was trying to get into a white corolla thinking its my rental Yaris.

This could be mistaken for any of the new lexus sports lineup. I really hate this trend where manufacturers are trying to make all their cars look the same. Damn Porsche for starting this trend ans damn the rest for following those idiots.

And if you think its bad on the outside its worse under the hood and inside. It has a BMW straight six meaning shitty overheating unreliable engines which blow head gaskets if you look at them wrong.

All interior switch gear from the old BMW parts bin, including that shitty BMW shifter you get from the 3 series to the 7. All BMW electronis

Basically a BMW with a new Toyota body.

Toyota seriously shot them selves in the foot collabing with BMW on such an iconic car. The whole appeal of the old Supra was its 2JZ relaible and its undestructible motor which you could tune upto 7-800hp with basically the same internals and even 1000 with slight inner mods. But now you have that stupid inline 6 from a 3 series. 

Toyota shot themselves in the foot ( did I mention that already? ) by making a BMW in Toyotas clothing. Proving Toyota has lost all creativity when it comes to making new cars. The last attempt was the 86, which was basically a rebadged Subaru. The new Rush SUV is a rebadged Daihatsu. The Land Cruiser and prado are overdue for the next gen but Toyota just added more chrome ans uglier lights and grill ans called it new. Should have just rebadged a BMW M3 as the new Supra and saved themselves the trouble

4 cylinder 2.0 version has just been confirmed. I’ve nothing against 4 cylinder cars, some of my favourite cars have 4 cylinders and 2.0 or less, but in a Supra, it just feels wrong. The last 4 cylinder Supra was called the Celica, and we all know where that went. Cool in the early 90s WRC glory days of the 4WD ST205, but then it turned into a reshelled coupe version of the Carina. Drove a few, handled well, good car but never lived up to the name.
