  1. 2022 Nissan Z Debuts August 17!

    My prediction is that we'll get specs and trims, but no pricing.

  3. Buy Supra now or wait for 400z/Z

    Based on the pics of the test mules it looks like the front end, and really the entire exterior, will be largely unchanged from the prototype. I'll reserve judgment until I've spent some time with one in person, but yeah, that front end is just strange looking to me in photos and video.
  4. Praise, complements, and questions - hate isn’t the problem

    I thought general apathy just went along with the stereotypical muscle car owner?? ;)
  5. Praise, complements, and questions - hate isn’t the problem

    Even as a non-owner I find the toxicity of that forum absolutely infuriating. I’m glad this forum exists so there can be some civil discussions about this particular car.
  6. New Nissan Z Proto looks to the future, inspired by its past / 2022 Nissan Z Leaked with Specs

    What did you think of the divisive front end in person? I’ve heard some folks say it looks better. I quite like the styling of the rest of the car from what I’ve seen on video. I dare say more so than the Supra, minus the front dead on. Still not convinced this will be any good to actually...
  7. 2022 Model Year Toyota GR Supra

    For those hoping for a targa top (I'm one of them): where would you envision the top being stowed? I ask because the hatch opening seems pretty constrained. Wouldn't that put a damper on being able to put it in the trunk?
  8. Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

    I replaced my MK7 GTI DSG with my manual Golf R. While I definitely had my issues with that car and transmission I'd say I much prefer the DSG and honestly regret the "upgrade" I made because of its absence.
  9. Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

    Was just getting ready to post this. My favorite automotive YouTuber. I've been a manual purist with sports cars for a very long time, but what I realized in recent years is that it isn't always better. If the trans feels numb it doesn't add as much to the experience. My current car is a...
  10. Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

    I went to look at Supras at a local dealer last Sunday. Two of the four they had outside (in a covered spot) were incredibly dirty and obviously hadn't been touched in a long time. During the time I was there several groups of people came through the lot. Not a single one of them paid any...
  11. Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

    In the most recent episode of The Carmudgeon show Jason claims that Porsche told him the actual issue is a drive by noise emission test that California instituted. Interesting and infuriating if true. Here’s a link to the episode. He starts in on it at 1:00:38...
  12. Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

    PDK in the GT4 doesn't look to be much better. Still pretty tall gearing IMO... https://rennlist.com/forums/718-gts-4-0-gt4-spyder/1200686-anyone-know-the-pdk-and-final-gear-ratios-2.html#post16746188
  13. Toyota Presents World Debut of the New 2022 GR 86

    Someone from bimmerpost just posted a bunch of in person pics of the 86. I think Toyota did a great job with the styling... https://f87.bimmerpost.com/forums/showpost.php?p=27469125&postcount=77
  14. New Nissan Z Proto looks to the future, inspired by its past / 2022 Nissan Z Leaked with Specs

    I’ve heard rumors of a hybrid electric powerplant that uses a rotary engine. Would be pretty interesting to see Mazda adapt the RWD platform they’ve supposedly been developing to use that in a RX car. There’s also the rumor that Toyota has been in talks with Porsche to use their next gen...
  15. New Nissan Z Proto looks to the future, inspired by its past / 2022 Nissan Z Leaked with Specs

    Well said. I’m just glad they’re making a successor in the first place. Even if it doesn’t live up to hopes or expectations. I’d love to see some competition with Japanese automakers and sports cars again. The idea of a new MR2 and some sort of RX7 really excited me. I know the chances of that...
  16. New Nissan Z Proto looks to the future, inspired by its past / 2022 Nissan Z Leaked with Specs

    After watching Larry Chen’s photo shoot video for the Z proto I gotta say I really like the exterior styling of the car. The only thing I’m not so sure of is the front end dead on. From every other angle I’m really digging it. Now the fact that this is based off the ancient 350/370z platform has...
  17. Supra and 22 other daily driver cars

    I also had really hyped the car up in my mind prior to driving it. So that definitely didn't help. It's doubtful any car could live up to anticipation I had managed to build up over months of obsession with Porsches, and 718s in particular. I will say that I was tempted to buy it based on looks...
  18. Supra and 22 other daily driver cars

    The 718 I drove was a base PDK. I found the transmission surprisingly slow even in sport mode, the engine had massive turbo lag and sounded bad (to my ears), and the car felt very heavy. Mind you this was just a 45 minute test drive around town. I didn't get the chance to drive it on something...
  19. 2021 Toyota Supra Review Videos

    I thought that I had heard most other reviewers say pricing will be in June, but sooner would be cool :)
  20. Supra and 22 other daily driver cars

    Sadly I still haven’t gotten the chance to drive one. I was going to wait until April or May. Then the pandemic happened. My wife and I are both at risk so we have been very cautious about our levels of exposure. As such trips to dealers haven’t been high on our list.
