I just can't get excited at all about this car for some reason. It just isn't doing it for me. Something just looks odd about it too. I was really hoping for something a bit different.
Its too much of a hodgepodge of design elements from previous Z cars. Not a cohesive design.

The more I see it, less I like it at all. Owning a Supra or not. Its just pedestrian styling and they are not putting out much on the weight either. Heavier is never better and boring sad styling. The 370Z was much more attractive.

Could care less about the manual obsession. Its not an efficient or even good way to put power down now. Never going back to a manual. My DCT M2 in Germany taught me that and well.

Have you seen the new Supra..? :rofl: It's a hodgepodge of weird shapes based on a caricature of the FT1 squished into the wheelbase of the Z4. It's not a particularly attractive car and downright fugly at certain angles, IMO. It literally only looks good at 2 angles in photographs. I'm sure the new Z presents much better in person.

Yeah, you and every other car bro that's only ever driven 200, 300 maybe 400HP manuals and is convinced themselves they're an authority... Try banging gears in a well-sorted big power:weight manual and you might understand. :thumbsup:

No need to understand. Drive what works for you. The physics and times recorded of both show who's quickest. Any racing experience? See whats on track and how power is delivered. Ok then ............maybe you might understand the reality. Here is some light reading for ya.

Oh you're trying this again? You were awfully quiet there for a while, but apparently you forgot your last spanking.

LOL please... I see I've been living in your mind rent free this whole time. You were mildly entertaining for a minute but at the end of the day you're still just a poseur with a rented sports car, following me around like a lost puppy begging for attention for 'forum clout'. Be still my beating heart...

You want an autograph to go with your obsession?




Missed this one. ?

I'm sure it's good, but I'm not going to bother with the 'showing ignored content' button.

Clever!

Thanks for the tip on the JB4, though.

I haven't seen the new Z in person, and I know everyone has their own opinion, but I've never met anyone in person who had anything negative to say about the new Supra. I've had people go out of their way at gas stations or grocery stores, to either walk over or drive over and talk to me about the car. The hatred this car gets all seems to be people on the internet hiding behind a keyboard just parroting something they've seen someone else say.

If you think the Supra is “fugly” why did you buy one?

"critical thinking"


Also, see nuance... "It's not a particularly attractive car and downright fugly at certain angles, IMO. It literally only looks good at 2 angles in photographs."
