My biggest concern is the steering. Top Gear wasn't the biggest fan of it, but some seem to favor it. I need to test drive one...
Same, i only managed to check out the interior last time(8/10 btw)
The four-cylinder BMW Z4 is an exercise in 'less is more'
For me, there’s nothing special with the four banger versions. It’s just to reduce costs and at the same time have better fuel economy. Performance wise, I don’t see it outperforming its rivals like the Porsche Boxster. Toyota may want to see the reaction on the BMW Z4’s four-pot versions first if they decide to introduce it in the Supra soon worldwide, which I doubt. The inline-4 lacks the punch and aggressiveness of the 6-cylinder variant. The smaller engine may suffer from a lot of stress since it’ll be pulling a heavy car, which is primarily built for the inline-6 version.
I don’t really get it why Toyota introduced a 4-cylinder on the Supra for the Japanese and European market. The 86 already has a 4-cylinder. It just makes the Supra look like what fans have been clamoring for a long time now...a turbo’ed 86. Stick to the 6-cylinder. Focus on the driving dynamics; not on fuel economy. Tada-san once said that he’s disappointed why the Porsche Cayman only comes a 4-cylinder engine(but now they’ll have a 6-cylinder version soon...) . Then he did the same with the Supra; just that he also did not forget about the tradition of having an inline-6 engine. Having an inline-4 sounds just right for the Z4 since previous iterations already utilized this engine size.
Love how it looks with the top up. Overall I like the lines better on this than the Supra, though the grills are too large.
It's been stated many times that it is for countries where a tax is imposed for bigger/more polluting engines. It will have no problem moving the Supra as it is used in plenty of BMW cars that are heavier than the Supra.
Not a review, but damn that's a nice blue.
motorman's review is now up - Love that color
With a few mods the 2.0 L should be finely guess. He didn't seem too disappointed with this drive.
