    Hi! I'm Kelly and new to the Supra. Currently driving a '13 FRS and am looking forward to seeing what this car is about and hopefully getting one. Until then I'll keep playing with my FRS

    New member from Florida & another long time Supra enthusiast. Husband has owned a beautiful hardtop MKIV for over 15 years now. I'd let him divorce me before I'd let him sell it :)

    I planned to get one for myself now that I'm in a position to do so but want to wait out the MKV seeing as prices for the MKIV aren't in the same range they were a couple years ago. Looking forward to the potential reveal if it happens @ Tokyo.

    Hello all! Been a long time lurker, probably since this forum was started. 7 more days until the Tokyo Motor Show, can't believe it's almost time and can't really say time went by quickly since the 2014 tease hahaha. Will Toyota disappoint?

    Greetings. The new Supra might well check off all the boxes for me - I have been searching for a few years for a sports/performance car that will put a grin on my face and keep it there. I have driven everything from a Camaro SS to a Miata ND, all cars with considerable strengths, but for me they have also had some negatives that have held me back from acquiring any of them.

    Loving the size and general form factor of the Supra prototypes we've seen. I'll be looking to see if they can keep the weight down (ideally to about 3000 lbs) so the car can be light on its feet. Personally I have no interest in some hi-po $70k CAD version that will be a Corvette competitor; I'm hoping for a variant that will be a Z 370 - class sportscar coming in at no more than $50k CAD. One strong wish - a manual transmission with a good auto-blipping setup like the CivicType R's.

    Hey all. Just posting here to say hi, as there does not seem to be a new members sub-forum.

    I'm a current Toyota 86 owner here in Australia. Keenly following the development of the new Supra since the FT-1 concept. If the new car is right, and I can afford it, the new Supra might just be my new car in a few years.

    Anyway, thought I should introduce myself since I've been lurking for a while.

    Everything I read sounds so promising for the Supra. Too many manufacters got away from being a drivers car, adding more and more luxury features which added size and weight. I am currently looking for a change to my Lexus IS-F (V8 416hp). I test drove a few different cars recently, ex. the RC-F, and others, which come with lots of options and features, but felt heavy and not very dymamic. BMW went through this, listened and came out with the M2 which a great car. So here is hoping the $ go into the right areas and we get a fantastic new car that pays homage to the great history of the Supra and is a blast to drive!

    The thing BMW did was pretty simple but pretty smart at the same time , let me explain. The past m3s were considered drivers cars to the bone with excellent performance despite being based on a sedan . The problem occured when the 3 series was getting bigger and heavier , so it lost its edge . BMW saw this and simply got what made the 3 series great back in the day and made a new car and named it 2 series ( m2) , that includes dimensions engines etc. If you see the dimensions weight etc of the past m3s and those of the m2 you will find many similarities . Of course the m2 was made with more sporty driving in mind from the beggining and not the other way around but the core thought about it was pretty simple if you ask me.
    About lexus , what can i say , i would pick bmw or mercedes turbo engines ove the lexus NA ones because the mileage is terrible and the performance is not great either . Now about toyota i sure hope so the car will be a blast to drive , but it is evident they didn't take into account the past supras or celicas , i tend to believe this car will be more of a hommage to the 2000gt.

    The problem with BMW's current lineup is that now you really have to pay to play if you want a new Bimmer that can be seriously considered a top-level driver's car.

    Earlier mid-range cars like the E36 328i and the E46 330i used to be acclaimed for their handling and driving fun, even if they did not have the performance limits of their M brethren. That's no longer the case; reviewers have frequently lambasted the dull electric steering and groggy responses of the current-gen midrange cars, which are bigger and heavier and consequently have less agility. This even holds true for the 230i and M240i, so you are forced to pony up the big $ for the M2 if you want an Ultimate Driving Machine - and then you get a a car that according to some reviewers is too stiff for enjoyable daily-driver use.

    When i heard about a new supra was being made with bmw i thought the toyota car would be closer to a small GT car like the 2 series because that is a trait of past supras and also it is considered the silver lining between performance and practicality of a daily driver and not a coupe bmw with a toyota badge on it . As for the 2 series , my honest opinion is that although the m2 is faster and sounds better than the m240i , i like the experience of the m240i more , because m2 feels more like racecar but maybe i am too soft haha. The 330i is also a very nice car in my opinion and is on my list as is the m240i .

    Hey, new member on the forum here, I've been a long time lurker of these forums and the general collaboration of Toyota and BMW on the J29 ever since the initial announcement. Finally decided to make an account as we're getting closer to the official reveal at Geneva of the racing concept. Possibly considering trading my GTR in for this car provided it is truly a supra worthy successor. Car is looking good so far from what I have seen, but I would've rather had Toyota make its own engine for this project. However, I am keeping my mind open so time shall tell! Here's my car:
