Nope, I actually don't hate it.

"Toyota Supra Isn't the Japanese Sports Car I Wanted: Review" https://www.roadandtrack.com/reviews/amp34947571/toyota-supra-review-good-not-japanese-sports-car-i-wanted/

The Supra name deserves more than this. If it were a proper, exciting Toyota sports car, it'd be something I'd personally consider cross-shopping and potentially buying, against the BMW M2, Porsche Cayman, C8 Corvette, Mustangs, and any semi-affordable sports car. I didn't want to get in a Supra and be surrounded by that same old orange gauge glow that's been populating the cabins of every single BMW for as long as I can remember. It feels like Toyota copied someone else's homework, as if it didn't even feel the need to submit an assignment. Why bring the Supra name back if this is how you're going to do it?

The Supra is fun to drive. But it feels more like an outsourced sports car, something put together to fill a gap in the middle range. I want more than that. I want it to feel special. I want it to break the rules.

Why do I not hate this car? It's actually pretty sweet.

I still cant get over the front end and how glaring the numerous body seams are on various colors. I've fallen in love the rear 3/4s tho.

I'd drive one. Although that buffeting issue is more of a dealbreaker for me than its looks :LOL: I'll wait till that gets sorted.

I'd like to wait till Toyota/BMW sort it out officialy, but there are aftermarket parts that you basically stick on the mirror to stall the air around the window to eliminate the buffeting noise.

I had thought that they changed the ECM half way through 2019 so that all the cars after that can no longer be tuned. (which I think is kind of a dick move)

Think the Supra can't get any uglier? Think again!! Joining the 2021 lineup of Lego Speed Champions, I present, the GR Supra!!





:LOL::LOL:

I am liking that Jesko tho. I will be picking that one up for sure.

Also I saw no less than 2 Supras today. They definitely stand out rolling down the road.

They did that with BMW's around 2012ish IIRC, but need a bench reflash and it's all good. There are ways around this....well if it is what I think it is
