Now we know Chris Harris’ opinion of the MKV.
so... forgetting that "it's a bmw" [insert eye roll here], what does he actually think about how good (or not) the car is?
Why are you rolling your eyes? He loves BMW's.
His review is the one I can't wait to see. I'm looking forward to his blunt comments and British humor.
I very much like his reviews as well (don't always agree, but that's life), that's why I want to hear wtf he thinks about the drive, not hear him whinging that "it's a BMW". Duh.
but he said it is nice car and objectively we all know it is but there are plenty of other nice coupes....Chris is right to chastise Toyota for treating their most iconic nameplate this way..
Each and every reviewer so far: "It drives great".
Additionally most say: It feels faster than specs suggest. Price is right. Looks cool. Comfortable to drive on the street. Capable on track.
Most complaints are focused on two (understandable) issues: Lots of BMW parts, no manual transmission. If you can look past them, this will be one hell of a sports car. Reviewers such as Chris Harris can replay the "no japanese DNA" and "not a real supra" comments, while owners will be enjoying a great car for many years to come. Hopefully one day I´ll be one of them, DNA be damned. Too old for that crap.
Thankfully I never had an MKIV, and wasn't into the Fast and Furious Movies or Gran Turismo game. I like BMW cars. It bothers me not one iota that the car is a collaboration with BMW. I feel bad for those that it really does, because they will be missing out on what appears to be an excellent car, in a category with very very few choices.
It was either this or a limited production Supra that never got here
I've had heaps of supras. I still have a Mk2, mk3 and mk4.
I too am pleased about the collaboration. BMW make some fantastic cars.
I hope to add an A90 to my collection too
I still don't understand what agenda Chris is trying to appease.
Yes, it is bmw, it is not going to be fixed and doesn't sound like he asked tada why they didn't do the job themselves. If Guff can ask these questions and get an answer, then so can Chris, but negativity sells.
Also doesn't mention how it drives or performs at all in his rant because muh japanese DNA is occupying his mind rent free
IMO that is generally the standpoint many of those that have not experienced a MKIV, especially in its hey day. Nearly no one is arguing that the Zupra is not a great car, but is it a great Supra? Those who have experienced the glory that is TT 6 sp and BMW side, mostly seem to have a different opinion.
Let me just politely leave this here;
They’re the anti-vaxxers of the car world
It's pretty simple... Toyota built product with limited involvement by other manufacturers, proven long-term Toyota reliability, punching way above its weight (ie. 911 turbo competitor, not Cayman).
