So what do we know about the engine? Is it one that BMW already has in production or something new?

So what’s the TCG general consensus of this car? I’m a little letdown by it (price, power, trans, BMW clone) but I still think it’s the coolest sports car made by Japan, short of the 100k+ GTR

I don’t think many people like it. It’s way more BMW than Toyota

General consensus is its a rebadged BMW and Toyota is using the Supra name as a nostalgia cash grab. I'll reserve final judgment for when I see it next month.. But overall, it's a pathetic revival.

Pretty much. Not sure you would be able to roll up to a car show without everyone laughing at you in it.

Its hilarious to see every car site in existence repost the Supra auction price...like #001 production cars have never gone for crazy money AT AUCTION before.

Idk, I still find it funny that it went for 2x of the GT500. I thought most of those rich old men at those auctions were part of the Carol Shelby generation not the FnF.

Why would that surprise you? Yet another mustang vs the revitalization of a car that is currently seeing a INSANE price jump (last gen).

would you prefer to see it at 100k but a beefy boi? i'm not in the market either way and can see both sides of that, with a debate between it being an aspirational halo car vs. something more attainable.

wasn't that motor the characteristic of a time and something atypical we aren't likely to repeat? ie. back then it was easier/cheaper to simply build a beefy boi motor - whereas with today's materials science and computing power and software, it's easier to run the numbers and get everything just right - so profits are good and the boys in accounting are happy, but customers aren't going to get some overbuilt monster block?

all good here, he's there all the time.
Hendrick usually bids on the charity cars... I found in interesting that his wife is involved with 1 of the 2 charities and he had the winning bid.

Hendrick's crony was bidding and I believe won the Bumblebee 4 pack
