Nope. He isn't. He is one of the few who constantly sucks fat Aston-Martin, Porsche, Ferrari and BMW dick and rides them all the god damn time. YOU'RE the one who's being ignorant.Chris Harris is one of the few prepared to tell it how it is.His argument is well based, well constructed, organised and rational. HE IS RIGHT.
He, and all the actually qualified and credible enthusiasts, know what they are talking about when they say the MkV simply isn't good enough. ITS NOT.
He's also part of an organisation that's big enough not to have not sell out their credibility to Toyota's Manipulative marketing on this car.
Like I've said before, to be a review it has to be balanced, and all these glowing reviews from supposedly reputable media sources, which are nothing but praise for the MkV aren't reviews - they are Toyota Sponsored adverts, in 95% of cases, literally.
insulting harris with paragraphs of personal insults, is like a 10 year old being told they can't have candy for breakfast by mum, then having a tantrum.
Too many people have fallen deeply totally in love with the MkV, when they haven't even driven one or seen one. The MkV fandom group is making the Old MKIV fanboys look like gentleman, and not one of them has got a damn car yet.
The emotions of these MKV fanboys are so bad that they are blinding them from seeing the reality and all its flaws, and as a result they defend its indefensible problems, using personal attacks and lies, again just like the 10 year who cant have candy for breakfast and says to his mum 'Yeah - BUT YOUR UGLY!!!, AND DAD SAID I COULD!!'
Put it this way if Chris Harris had said it was good, they all these MkV fanboys would all be praising him instead of slamming him.
Blaming all the negativity on trolls and internet trends is more 10 year tantrum stuff. Sure that will always been there in small amounts, but the fact is if the MkV was a good product it wouldn't have 99% of the hate its getting. Its the product, not the people that's the problem.
Its not a good product.
No one owes Toyota or the MkV a damn thing, and no one has the right to demand we be grateful for it. People have every right to hold Toyota accountable for lazy engineering and brand profiteering, though speaking out about it.
Just because people some have fallen in love with it, doesn't mean everyone else cant point out its abundant problems. Freedom of speech is supposedly a corner stone of the union isn't it?
Is it not good enough because it was codeveloped with a BMW? Idk what else we could tell you here. The partnership was necessary. And fans like me want a new Supra back. It's still a very competent car in all the right ways and used all of BMW's good qualities. What's wrong with that?
I've shat on Harris since forever, and on the other hand, I strongly believe Jason Cammisa is one of the best automotive journalists out there. Jason is wrong on this point, but that doesn't make him the worst journalist out there because his facts and viewpoints are incorrect. You're just making that assumption that anyone who insults the Supra is immediately wrong and should be hated upon. That isn't true. I'm speaking for myself, and I am the most unbiased human being out there.
Someone actually made a post here whether they should buy the Supra or the LC, and despite how much I ADORE the new Supra, I immediately said go for the LC. So listen you douche, I'm capable of making an unbiased judgement and don't release a slew of dumb comments (like you) and spam the forums with unintelligent bullshit.
Who said the MkV doesn't have flaws? Did any of us say that? Who said that? Riiggghhht you're just jumping to conclusions here.
"The MkV fandom group is making the Old MKIV fanboys look like gentleman, and not one of them has got a damn car yet." Bias much?
Chris Harris kept saying it was bad because of the BMW partnership. Go watch his review if he was able to find other flaws with it. Go ahead. I'll wait. All you read about are his lies and trying to be edgy by going against the rest of the automotive reviewers. Even JDM fanboys that you see sometimes criticizing the new Supra for being codeveloped with the Z4 are still happy that the Supra is back. You have the basic formula of a good Toyota sports car, with engineers on both ends putting their heart and soul into this project trying to make some fun sports cars. Because this world needs fun. My only issue is that it needs a manual.
"No one owes Toyota or the MkV a damn thing, and no one has the right to demand we be grateful for it. People have every right to hold Toyota accountable for lazy engineering and brand profiteering, though speaking out about it." You're right. Nobody owes Toyota anything, but listen carefully you bub, don't you motherfucking whine if we don't get any more sports cars from Toyota after you throwing your stupid tantrums. This was their best attempt given the circumstances. So I'm grateful. And once I'm in the position to buy one, I will damn well buy one. Because I want a six-cylinder sports car from Toyota. For fucks sakes, we didn't have a six-cylinder Toyota sports car for over 20 years.
Like I said before. The MkV has flaws, but it's objectively the best Supra they made, even when considering the BMW partnership.
