A new Supra was going to get picked apart by enthusiasts no matter what. The ‘96 era was such a grand slam, and it’s so hard to follow that. I’m a die hard domestic guy but that is one of a handful of imports I’d have no shame rocking. And I’m not alone in that.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about new car reveals, even pictures and videos of the actual car only give you an idea if you’re ganna like it. Sometimes you have to see a car in person to really pass a judgement. It’s not completely bad, so I’m hopeful when I see one.

I disagree. The FT concept was aggressively stroked by everyone: enthusiasts, and people who didnít know what the hell it was intended to be. Reaction was wild enough that they actually made the car. It was lost in translation along the way, however, going from a sexy GT car to a bastardized Z4.

The concept with at least 400hp would have been sick....even at $50k

With some improving, the Lexus RC platform would have been a more-appropriate successor.

Exactly. How hard would it have been for them to take an old rcF, v8 and all, pull out all the Lexus shit, tune the suspension a little more, and call it a day?

Googled images of the ft concept. Looks pretty close but idk the details of it. Definitely looks better though.

Why are concept cars almost ALWAYS cooler and better looking than the production car??

Very true. This is becoming more and more common. Tesla did it both with the S, and now the roadster. Calling them ďfounders editionsĒ

Agreed, the mk4 Supra would be one of the only imports I could ever see myself owning....

The FRS/BRZ are good cars that could have been great with more power and an interior that isnít so ďcheapĒ. If this car takes that whole platform to the next level I bet itís a very fun car to drive and own.

Ah fuck. Was hoping they'd go somewhat retro like when the Mustang and Camaro got redone a decade or so ago.

This might be an okay car, but I'll never consider it a MKV Supra.

That shifter and center climate controls looks like it came straight from a bmw parts bin. Not surprising considering the z4ness of the car but you’d think Toyota would try to make it different.
