Exactly, itís one thing to share some drivetrain, but at least make the car resemble a Toyota and not just a rebadged bmw throughout.

I like the interior but the down bar from dash to console is driving me nuts either put two or put the bar on the passenger side

Welcome back to 1990s . 335hp and only available transmission is a standard automatic slashbox with torque converter . What a fail
The whole car is a BMW Z4 with Toyota exterior panels . That just shows us how much Toyota gives a shit about investing money in building sports cars. All they want to do is make money building boring daily drivers like Corolla, Camry , Prius etc

Six inches longer than the 86, but with a four-inch shorter wheelbase. That's why it looks so funky.

I keep looking at it saying the same thing, the proportions are off. The concept car looks good if you like the aggressive styling. The production car looks like someone took a pic and used photoshop to compress it and make a cartoon car.

This is a goddamn joke. 50g and 335hp? Tell me that's a German 335 and the number is really closer to like 400.

I dont mind the back end. The front doesn't seem very photogenic from the standard picture angle. I would definitely like to see one in person. It doesn't particularly bother me that the interior screams BMW as they have nice interiors IMO. I am definitely looking forward to the aftermarket getting their hands on them.

It will be interesting to see what the curb weight is on the car. The hp to weight ratio might not be that bad.

Luckily the BMW turbo motors respond well to mods. But you are talking a $55k car that you are playing with fire as far as the warranty is concerned.

We can hope there are higher HP numbers down the line with different models. But those will probably just increase the price of the car.

I think the M3 powertrain would be a nice setup for this car .425hp with DCT transmission

Horsepower to weight ratio


0.073 - BRZ 205hp / 2,800 lbs.
0.077 - Miata 181hp / 2,350 lbs.
0.099 - Supra 335hp / 3,397 lbs.
0.101 - 370Z 350 hp / 3,450 lbs.
0.13 - Corvette 445hp / 3,500 lbs.
0.142 - GT350 (non-R) 526 hp / 3,700 lbs.




Going by that, it isn't a horrible weight to power from the factory. Even a bump to 345 hp puts the Supra at 0.101 like the 370Z. Although a top of the line Nismo 370Z starts under $46k.



So I guess we will have to wait for reviews to see what the writers think about power, torque, steering ratio & feel, handlings, braking, and so on. Even if it has glowing reviews, it doesn't change the odd looking proportions.

Gotta see how it's putting that 335hp down. Turbo Bmw motors are usually torque monsters. This will be faster than a 370 for sure.

The thing that kinda blows is that the old supras used to be legit corvette beaters and now it's looking like your standard base gt 10spd will fuck this thing up.

Itll be just like the brz argument. For the money you can buy a eb mustang w 100 more hp but there will be folks that prefer the smaller car. So this is just up another level.
