    Can we maybe split this thread? One for "discussions from the web" and the other being the member's discussion?

    I'd rather not have to dig through the arguements to find what people not on the forums are saying.

    Just ignore this guy (AustralianoftheNorth). He flies in here once a week, drops a negative turd about the MKV, and you don't hear from him again for another week. He does not engage with anyones' responses to his comments, most of which rationally point out the weaknesses and strong negative bias in his arguments. He's the quintessential troll.....

    Just watched it a bit earlier. It really does seem to be one of the most unbiased reviews out there.

    Until you get to the comments, which are stereotypical of all the A90 videos.

    They always give polite reviews of all the cars they test. Sometimes they will make a kindhearted critique but I've never seen them be really negative.

    These guys have been doing nicely made review videos for decades before Youtube came along -- I remember watching their show on a local PBS station on Saturdays all the way back in the 80s and 90s.

    I've always watched autoweeks video back when I was a kid and dreaming about all the different cars I'd like to own one day. His voice brings me back to those days. I feel they are a bit out of touch with this latest review and kinda followed the Toyota script. Venturing off to say had Toyota actually designed the interior the pricetag would have been higher...no shit. Great car, look forward to driving the new z4, but honestly after the new vette launch that is the better car for the pricepoint, this is coming from a supra owner of 20 years.

    I agree. I think this Vette launch has really put a question mark in everyone's minds when it comes to the Supra.

    Nah, I don't think most Supra customers are Corvette customers and vice versa.
    Both cars are totally different in their layout and specs. If you just look at the horsepower per €/$/insert random currency than ok.

    But the supra is a turbocharged GT and the c8 is a mid engined naturally aspirated focused sportscar.

    I think the c8 will not really have an impact on Supra sales
