    I think color to color would be a more fair comparison.

    Yeah I also see Z8 styling cues on the front. Especially with the elongated kidney grille.

    Even the taillights, come to think of it...people call the Supra a reskinned Z4

    when in reality the Z4 is a reskinned Z8!!

    The Z8 and new Z4 both pay homage to the BMW 507. While there are some similar styling cues, I wouldn't go that far. It's still missing two extra cylinders.

    not surprised to see the amount of dislike towards the styling of the Z4 here. the design is catered towards the BMW crowd and not for you guys. like wise many on bimmerpost find the styling of the Supra to be over the top, cartoonish, too busy, overstyled and etc. personally i think both cars look fine and appears to please their target audiences. in the end its about personal preferences. the old saying different strokes for different folks. i think the Z4 is more subdued and elegant. the Supra is definitely stands out from the crowd by being more sporty and aggressive.

    Im liking this Z4.... maybe a second hand would be OK as a summer weekend car... when its about 25-30% of its retail value, so about 5 years time as most BMWs :)

    Interesting that article mentions the Supra will have a mild hybrid option, 48v, 20hp/70Nm.
