    Yeah I'm aware, <-- computer engineer who's worked in physics and vehicle simulation here.

    To complete my thought, I'm quite certain the 8spd allows the mk5 to stay under 5000rpm even at higher speeds when accelerating, the car most likely is aero challenged and I'm sure the fake vents aren't helping any.

    & here’s Z4 vs Supra comparison vid. I know, I know. “We don’t know Japanese.” So I did quick translation for you guys, pointing out the difference & common on Z4 & Supra.


    Driving feel:

    Supra & Z4 both have mature suspension setup.
    Supra feel more rigid.
    Z4 is convertible, so feel less rigid.
    Supra’s cornering limit is very high. In the cornering, can directly feel front and rear traction, so it’s easy to feel the limit.
    When Supra’s rear sliding (drifting) is very easy to control in the corner.
    Even Supra is drifting, it keep you pushing forward & forward.
    Z4 rear slip earlier than Supra in the corner, but it's not a bad feel.
    Supra feel faster through the corner.
    50kg weight difference, chassis difference makes the huge difference in the driving feel..


    Sound:

    Supra is couple, isn’t loud as Z4
    When Z4 is opened, sound is direct and loud.
    When Z4 is closed, sound is loud but a bit different.
    *Rumor has it, BMW & Toyota were making different exhaust for each car, but Toyota did excellent job making the exhaust, BMW decided to go with Toyota exhaust.


    Interior:

    Z4 steering is thicker
    Supra steering have luxury feel.

    Thank you for this translation! Do you mind doing a translation for the Supra vs M2 vs Cayman vid you posted earlier?

    tbh that one wasn't really good review nor comparison vid. I even show that to Tada-san and even he said "GTS isn't a fair comparison. Compare with S." I just lol'ed at his reply. lol

    Whole vid in the nutshell, Cayman GTS is the best out of 3 and M2 Comp is crap. GTS did everything better than other 2 (of course, it cost almost x2 of Supra). M2C has more power, but suspension isn't great. At the smooth track, it'll perform great. On rough surface street, doesn't plant the tires and loose traction. He went on and on didn't say much good thing bout M2C.

    Don't you think it's kind of sad that he says don't compare with the GTS? That engine in the Supra is vastly underrated and has one hell of a chassis. Why shouldn't it beat the Porsche? GR Supra should be able to wipe the Cayman S and be toe-to-toe with the GTS and the GT4. The GRMN wiping the GT4 clean.

    The GTS is a $90k car easily, the S is a $70-80k car. I think it's still a win if the GR beats an S.
