  1. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    Looks like a Kia with a split grill. Or a Mercedes with a split grill and more stuff on the lip. Why do all new cars look something or other like this? At least the Supra will be a fresh wind in the generic-angry-car world. Unfortunately it's not as happy as the predecessor was, but it's...
  2. The Supra has finally been spotted in Japan!

    No manual did it for me, I'm set on buying an Elise 250 next year. I will only consider the Supra if it comes with a manual, so waiting until then to see. This year I'm still bogged down financially by getting my AE86 road legal in Switzerland.
  3. 2020 Supra Transmission Chat - Manual, Dual Clutch, or Auto?

    I'd just like to point out that the British still build a bunch of great sports cars that are manual only. Most Lotuses, Morgan, Ultima, ...
  4. Second generation Toyota GR86

    Still hoping for that proper AE86 heritage with a high-revving Toyota i4. The boxer was kind of off-putting - I wouldn't buy a Subaru without one, just as much as I wouldn't buy a Toyota with one.
  5. Why I'm NOT Hyped About The New Toyota Supra & Talk about your excitement level

    Yeah, I know. There's even such things as Nismo Jukes and other automotive jokes.
  6. Interviews with Chief Engineer Tetsuya Tada

    What's bothering me more is that, why didn't they take the BMW engine and combine it with a Toyota ECU? Most hackjob tuners manage to wire up aftermarket ECUs to whatever, so why didn't Toyota? It's not like they didn't extensively tune and modify the BMW ECU...
  7. 2020 Supra Transmission Chat - Manual, Dual Clutch, or Auto?

    Sad news, so no need to hope for anything - but at least I can sleep now at night. I'll be getting an Elise 220R or 250 Cup then. It's more Toyota than the Supra and comes with a manual. Thanks for the ride, was fun!
  8. 2020 Supra Transmission Chat - Manual, Dual Clutch, or Auto?

    This. I'm pretty set on getting an Elise 220R if the Supra doesn't come with a manual... or nothing at all and just keep the change to save up for a house. Where I can build a proper garage with lift. And then put an Elise in it.
  9. 2020 Supra Transmission Chat - Manual, Dual Clutch, or Auto?

    Don't get excited too early, it's probably a different beast with the BMW based electronics, like Jeff said.
  10. Petition To Toyota For Manual Transmission.

    I disagree. Optional is great, I like anything that's optional so that people can choose whatever they prefer ([ ] Air bags, [x] ABS, [switchable] ESP, [ ] lane assist, [ ] parking assist/rear view camera, [ ] AEB, ...) It's called the Caterham 620R. Maybe not 300mph, but fucking fast. If you...
  11. The A70TTR Dedication Thread!

    Chances are minuscule, I guess. I might have bought one to build a track car.
  12. Interviews with Chief Engineer Tetsuya Tada

    Unless there's a manual, I'll just take my money and hand it over to Lotus instead as they build cars to my liking and even use Toyota engines in them.
  13. 2020 Supra Transmission Chat - Manual, Dual Clutch, or Auto?

    I don't mind them being serious about safety, but let's look at it from this side: First they mess up by writing shoddy software, then they throw more software and new sensors at the problem and label it "safe". It's not really that convincing to me and I'd prefer the system to stay simple. Also...
  14. Petition To Toyota For Manual Transmission.

    Nice manual in that BMW...
  15. 2020 Supra Transmission Chat - Manual, Dual Clutch, or Auto?

    I'm suprised as well, as I would even take away the steering wheel air bag if I could... I'd rather wear a four-point and head restrainer than have an explosive charge in front of my face.
  16. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    I tried to gauge the size of the Z4 but failed. The driver looks really small...
  17. 2020 Supra Transmission Chat - Manual, Dual Clutch, or Auto?

    AEB is for stopping the car. If the engine stalls, that's a non-issue in my opinion.
  18. 2020 Supra Transmission Chat - Manual, Dual Clutch, or Auto?

    Disconnecting the engine from the wheels would be supremely easy, they would just need to use the same tech they used in my '92 Camry for the cruise control. It's literally a box that pulls on the throttle wire - slightly creepy when the accelerator pedal physically moves itself, but it works...
  19. Toyota Supra finally spied testing Stateside!

    I hope there's an option without them. Driving a sports car doesn't need such distractions.
  20. 2020 Supra Transmission Chat - Manual, Dual Clutch, or Auto?

    But where's the skill and finesse in using it? Then I might just as well buy the flappy paddle DCT (which I won't).
