    Price too high for 335 hp? Ummm, last time I checked, the A90 3.0 makes more than 335hp at the crank.... Where is this guy getting this crap from?

    I will be honest, I was alittle annoyed and skeptical about the new Supra too. With the bmw motor and etc. I am a huge import guy and love japanese cars. So, I was alittle upset too.
    My sales lady let me test drive a slightly used A90 with 1,000 miles. First 30 seconds, I was HOLY FK! lol I was sold after that..........

    Keep in mind, this is my so called “perfect” Supra.
    There are 4 major & 2 minor things. Not gonna go indepth.
    4 Major:
    1. Weight - Supra isn’t boat like some other sports car... but that shouldn’t be an excuse to add weight. They need fully loaded 3.0L ver minimum of 100kg (220lbs) lighter than current ver.
    2. MT Option - Current AT (ZF) isn’t bad... but not enough. Need like 7sp MT option.
    3. Suspension - Design of Supra suspension is great... but could of engineered it better.
    4. Limited Edi - No matter how you look at it, Supra is unique car. It shouldn’t compete to mass production. Within that, making more limited Edi will truly shine the name Supra. Not talking about A91 or Launch Edi or GT4. What if GR made Supra like Porsche R models. Whole purpose is shed weight, MT & driver focus. Don’t have pointless safety gizmo. Hell, if they made it & let’s say priced at +$75k, ppl will still buy it.
    2 Minor:
    1. Interior - Quality control need to be done plus better. Like gauge could of used better design & use the whole gauge area better.
    2. Exterior - Not knocking of fake vents, cuz it prob work (if you try), but I like it simple design w less stuff.
    If they want to compete w Porsche, they need to look into what make Porsche plus other brands that make worth every penny.

    I love when people say the Supra is overpriced. There isn’t a cheaper car with under 4.0s 0-60 that isn’t a value oriented muscle/pony car.

    (Atleast here in the US, I understand the Supra is way more expensive overseas)

    Coming from Porsche and aside from the way it already is, I couldn't agree with you more on this! Toyota should have made it a more simple from the beginning.

    They could have offered the infotainment fablet, JBL sub , leather full power seats, CF trim, larger wheels the premium model while having the 3.0 as an entry level Supra. Give customers the options individually to their builds instead of a bundle package forcing them to buy it. That would have reduced the cost substantially and like Porsche, you can fully customize your options down to the deviating stitching, seat options down to the wheel finish.

    Agreed Agreed Agreed! someone who tracks and races my BMW's, I was expecting for the Supra to have a lighter more hardcore track focused variant. Power increase is great but lets see a Supra that's around the 3,000lb marker, no Sub, Carbon Roof, Carbon vented Bonnet, a rear adjustable wing. This is where im somewhat building mine up to without sacrificing the daily drivability. Sorry to say but....ALL HAIL PORSCHE.

    Guy
    so he says it’s a waste of money bc it’s a BMW inside it? Sounds like he just doesn’t like BMW bc he is Japanese?

    And he said it’s slow, nobody told him to go buy the 4 cylinder Supra. Lmao

    I am not sure what car he drove, but the stock 3.0 is not slow at all. I was very impressed on how quick it was from the factory. This is me coming from a 600hp (crank) 2800lb Acura RSX....
