  1. Toyota confirmed 3 sports car lineup: Toyota exec wants to bring back Celica, MR2

    Electric compact sportscars make alot of sense. Sportscars are not road trip cars, so the range is less of an issue. Being smaller and simpler, the weight of the battery can also be kept low. Daily communting is boring, changing gears is not fun (not disturbing for me personally), but no gears...
  2. New (Unconfirmed) Details and Specifications of US-Spec MKV Supra:

    If the new Supra had a transaxle, the 4 cylinder would not have better weight distribution. Screw fake vents and BMW interior, lack of transaxle remains my greatest complaint. :cry:
  3. Latest 2020 Supra Interior Spy Pics!

    We know a manual is possible in terms of hardware. We will have to see about software and that is where the trouble comes. The lack of manual handbrake makes things a little harder. Unfortunately cars have so many "fail-safes" for mindless people that a lot of complexity is added. With the...
  4. New (Unconfirmed) Details and Specifications of US-Spec MKV Supra:

    Japanese past turbo cars competed against naturally aspirated cars. So surely they were fast. But then the Japanese went with NA, and somehow the Euro discovered FI. Now with the Japanese going back to turbo, it becomes an equal arms fight. It is impossible to beat physics. Anyone claiming the...

    Not all Fiats have bad durability interiors.
  6. 2020 Supra prototype at Goodwood Festival of Speed (photos/videos)

    I6 has never been a special sounding engine, but it also never sounded bad. It is a well balanced engine in every aspect.

    Usually it is the BMW guys complaining about Toyota's "cheap" buttons, yet as we see the Toyota guys are not convinced by BMW's "premium" buttons. So much for "perceived" quality, it is all a question of perception.
  8. Lets talk about a side air vent/scoop/intake

    Another thing: if the vents are fake on this Supra, it does not mean they would be fake on a different version of the Supra, like the GR or GRMN. The base Corvette has fake rear vents, if the car is not equipped with the optional tranny and diff cooler. Sometimes, only one vent is functional...
  9. Lets talk about a side air vent/scoop/intake

    The Supra is a tuner car and should always look good. It is easier to delete fake vents than to add functional looking fake vents.

    These lap times are worth nothing. Jaguar F Type R cannot be faster than those after it.
  11. New (Unconfirmed) Details and Specifications of US-Spec MKV Supra:

    One other thing that has to be confirmed: vertical (Toyota) or slanted (BMW) I6 placement? I prefer vertical. Hood line is anyway not as low as Honda S2000.

    A BMW not worthy of being a Toyota proves that BMW < Toyota. So much for "Premium" and "German Engineering".
  13. Lets talk about a side air vent/scoop/intake

    As I said in my other post, these fake vents have probably an aftermarket function. From the pics I see that they are designed in such a way that is would permit tuners to develop OEM looking and OEM fitting body and wide body kits. Most wide body kits do not look good. Even race car wide bodies...

    You got owned by marketing. Rotors surface type (smooth, drilled, slotted) is the least important thing. http://bimmertips.com/drilled-slotted-scalloped-floating-ceramic-brake-rotors-explained/ Anyway, it is a tuner's car, most parts will be swapped. Nice the have the car good enough from...
  15. Lets talk about a side air vent/scoop/intake

    BMW, Audi and Mercedes are full of fake vents and exhausts.

    Electronic aids are not interesting without mind-reading control.

    Longest tease ever! I bet official specs will come way after official pics.
  18. 2020 Supra prototype at Goodwood Festival of Speed (photos/videos)

    What if the purpose of those fake vents (front side and rear) -- notice how they have clear cuts/lines -- was to facilitate aftermarket development of OEM-like quality and looks of wide body kits? With 1400 kg cars hitting +600 PS (super car power levels) wider tires and modified suspension...
  19. 2020 Supra prototype at Goodwood Festival of Speed (photos/videos)

    How does it manage to be 250 kg heavier than the GT86 and only 100 kg lighter than an M3 which has 4 doors and 5 seats? The fate of the new Supra lies in the hand of the tuning community. If the tuning community wants to build theirs, it will sell. Toyota and BMW are some of the biggest...

    Yes, because still no manual transaxle transmission. :D
