It's kinda bizarre that Toyota hasn't taken advantage of the Supra hype and done this sooner. The MKIV has reached legendary status. Not just because of the stupid movie but it's proven itself in the tuning world. The engine was an indestructable rock and mods can make it into a friggin' beast.

That's probably how this new model will be judged. Just how much can that BMW engine handle tuning and mods and compare to the legend from the 90s.

that's damn good punnery son

also, I agree that the back end looks weird. I get they were trying to capture the look of the rounded spoiler the OG supra used, but it doesn't look good at all. In fact I didn't like the OG supra's spoiler either. I like the front end though

It's a competitive market, but I suppose what car genre isn't.
They're going to be competing with a lot of sport coupes in that price range. A sports car but not at the supercar level.
Considering the classic Supra was capable of kicking supercar ass, the expectations are high. But without a doubt, I'm betting Toyota gets a fair amount of sales simply because it's a Supra regardless of performance.

The irony of it all is that peeps want unmodded MkIVs tho lol

That said a hint of modding the MkV could be seen here where Japanese tuners mod the BMW N55 (the precursor to the B58 that’s used in the MkV) in a M235i:

First impression is it lacks muscularity in the rear end, a little truncated. But i dont like many new designs, but then they tend to grow on me.

Doug DeMuro has a review on Youtube of a stock 94 Supra. Now it doesn't seem that impressive. I think the styling still looks good so it was ahead of it's time for that, but any car from the mid 90's isn't going to impress with features.
It's all about that engine, and finding a stock 94 Supra is damn near impossible because they've all been modded and pimped out, probably with 10 year old parts.

I wouldn't park a stock 94 Supra on the street. That baby gonna get stole.

Everything Toyota makes to me (sans the LFA) has been ugly as sin. This is no exception. And that goes double for the concept. It's barely any better.

It's been disappointing that Toyota won't develop its own engines anymore. They had legendary high revving twincams. The BEAMS 3S, the 4A, the 1LR, the 2ZZ.

The B58 is a nice engine but it's massively stroked and designed to puts its power out in the middle of the band. It's going to be an utterly fantastic car. Like it's GT86 sibling, it's just not... Toyota. At least, that was my problem with the GT86 even though I lovingly owned one. Fuel cut at 7450rpm? My old 2ZZ weeps.

I'm honestly surprised Toyota bothered bringing it back. The sports car market is almost completely dead, and I can't imagine many paying that price for something that looks like that.

I want to get back into the sports car market so badly. $20-30k seems to be the spot for me, lower 20's preferably. But these high end sports cars just inflate the prices of the lower ends :...(

I would buy an M2 9 times out of ten over this.

Guaranteed better interior (even if it's basic by M standards), available six-speed, roughly the same power, size, and weight, arguably better looking. And probably cheaper.

Mazda Miata is still made. That's a cheap sporty roadster.
I don't think the sports car market is dead. They might not be selling lots but there's certainly a fair amount to chose from. Even some sedans can be considered very sporty. Reasonably high HP engines can be put in anything, and they do.

Can't say I'm a fan here. It seems like it took more design influences from the BMW part of the collaboration. Hopefully it performs well.

I dont get the hate. I like it. Stands out and loks cool to me.
The concept or the production vehicle? Cause that's the concept you've quoted.

Anyway, there's a world of difference between the two. The concept has thinner headlights, lower front bumper, lower hood line, wider and longer wheelbase, retractable rear wing/spoiler and a much better looking back end. The production looks like a cheap GoBots version of a Transformer or a Chinese knockoff of the concept vehicle. The smushed wheelbase and other changes isn't doing this any favors.

Do ground fx do anything for u under 90mph.?
Do they ever?
