This car has been in the works for too long. No matter what they put out, it will be a disappointment.

Not a bad looking vehicle (IMHO), but those power/weight numbers seem a bit of a disappointment. Hopefully, after this long wait, it won't suffer the same fate the latest NSX did.

Mixed feelings on that car - not good performance numbers, but it sure doesn't look like anything else out there.

1) The MkVI was slower than this car.
2) RX7 v. RX8
2a) 300 ZX TT v. 350Z are a couple more examples of previous gens being quicker than the models that they replace. (just to name two).

Yeah but with minor upgrades that Supra walked away from the Vette. Which is why it sold so well, and has retained it's value. People were pushing 500+ hp without major engine mods.

Now they're releasing one with essentially the same performance as the '93, for I'm guessing $50k or more. Maybe if it's as easy to mod as the last one they will sell ok, but that's just too weak in stock form to compete.

The Celica GT-Four had 255hp AWD, the new Celica had 180hp front wheel drive.
The MR2 had 245hp(200hp for US market) and MR2 Spyder had 138hp.

Note the German plate, this car was co-developed with the new BMW Z4, chassis and engine.

Back when this corvette forum stated in 1999...the supra fans would come to this site and start troll wars...

modded turbo cars were cheap to make go quickly....and the overbuilt engine was ripe for boost upgrades which were inexpensive and easy but stock for stock the corvette was the better performing vehicle.

most who bought the original supra new left them stick...it was when they began trading second hand that most of the hype for the modded supra began...

all that said...if stick the supra did 60mph in 4.7 seconds it was blistering performance...


i would imagine this twin to the 65 grand bmw z4 convertible should accelerate to sixty stock in about 4.4 seconds and light easy mods should prodice around 600 hp...

i am not a bmw engine fan nor to I track the performance upgrade capability but I believe Ive read 600 hp on a modded bmw turbo six is not too difficult or too unreliable...

i usually wait until all the camoflauge is off before I personally decide if the style is a win or a failure...

so far the supra looks like a slightly updated nissan 370z...

hopefully when fully revealed next month this new supra will be as stunning as the cincept supra we saw for a few years...

the. With 600 hp modded it might be a fun vehicle tokwn...

hopefully it will sell better for toyota than the very expensive mark IV supra...

at the time I re,ember the Last gen supra was a very expensive car from the toyota dealerships...

a lot sold with the targa roof if I remember correctly it was a very challenging procedure to take off the roof...

will this new supra have a targa roof? Id imagine since its based off the convertible bmw z4 it should be easy for the targa to be part of the design for the toyota version?

usually companies save a few bucks designing a targa from a convertible chassis as it saves on some air bag or other safety area that convertibles and targas are exempt from..

hope this new supra is a success.,,we as enthusiasts need as many different varieties of sports cars...

is this a 2 + 2 like the original?
