I’m not a baller, shittttt lol
I’m also a Honda guy at heart. If I buy Japanese I always buy Honda. It’s a sickness.

Regardless of what I can afford though, how can you deny what the Supra purists want? It’s not hard. It’s always been a pretty straight forward approach for Supra owners. Turbo Japanese motor with aftermarket turbos boosting big HP.

This car will be cool. There’s gonna be some awesome builds I’m sure. But I do feel it missed the audience’s mark. It’s going to attract BMW guys, not Supra guys. There is a difference.

The proportions of this thing are so strange from some angles. That front quarter view makes it look like a shoe with wheels.

So how do you think this release will go?

Lots of hype in the beginning and then it fizzles out quickly? Sort like the FRS/BRZ?

What car is that?

I think 4.1 is pretty impressive honestly. There aren't too many cars that can get there at that price point.

But can it pass all emission, NVH, safety, fuel economy standards?

Don't buy the Mxxxx anything. Look at what happened when the M231 or whatever came out. Good performance, but I wouldn't say a true M car. Then the M2 came out and everyone who bought the other one was pissed.

Same is going to happen with this M850i. Wait until a real M8 comes and get that. Or get the M5.

Yeah, but just wait until the reviews. Then it'll be the best handling shoe with wheels money can buy.
(I agree... the front is super awkward)

EVO X

Not saying it's not impressive and I guess there are limitations to physics unless an insane amount of money is invested in a car but you would think by now tech would have advaced a little here.

Well that car is pretty performance heavy, plus AWD. Even your typical family car which is AWD can out accelerate a pretty good performing "sports" car to 60mph.

Yea that's my point lol.

The Supra isn't a super car so I guess I didn't take that into consideration. It does only have less than 400hp.

I just expect more from these cars. Maybe I'm spoiled.

Lettuce forget the Poopra and acknowledge that Lexus got tired of me spamming their ads saying the headlights were hideous and now they are one piece like they should have been all along

New RCF looks gooood now and with a RR blower would be a fun reliable beast.

Will liklely daily one some day. After i acquire R8 of course.

Same. With all the new cars coming out, I thought it would have 500+hp and be $100K or more. However, as others have said, the original Supra only had 300something hp and was very heavy. The only good thing (which people realized much later) was how well it responded to modifications. Near 1000 (or over) horsepower with not a ton of money spent.

With the value of the dollar changing, I think someone said the original Supra would be sold at about $70-75K now. That's what they should have done. Good performance for today's standards at $70K. For the price of this, I'd probably do some type of Lexus model instead.

Still waiting for actual reviews of this car on the road/track. Aesthetics wise, I don't like it, looks too busy. But maybe that's how things are going now and I'm old.

Who knows, in 20 years this thing could be worth a ton.

So how about everybody pretend that bmw took their all new z4, which is already fantastic, then they residesigned it from the ground up to be purely focused on performance, dialed back the power about 30hp, badged it a z4m and charged $20k less for it than a z4.

That’s exactly what happened, only toyota did it instead of bmw.

You’d all be salivating over it saying it might be your next car

I have no idea what all the complaints are about.
