In south florida there are quite a few base C7 in the 50K range. I've been looking at them & have test driven a couple - actually pretty nice sports car. The reason I was looking at the C7 was the space behind the seats for my dog & stuff. However their A8 can be a problem if you get a bad one. Currently a class action law suite ongoing with the A8, deal breaker for me. Along comes the Supra, space behind the seats - take out that bar(not structural) - space for my dog & some stuff. In terms of the BMW 6 - great engine - spent 7 yrs driving an M3. In terms of the ZF8 have owned 4 vehicles w/this trans, including a Challenger Scatpack. GREAT trans. In terms of Toyota/Lexus great vehicles, BUT for me too boring, UNTIL this new Supra came along. So at this point I'll be waiting for the C8 - Base w/Performane exhaust OR a Base Supra w/blind spot option. Looking at the price difference - 10K. I'll make my decision mid 2020. I really don't want to leave my wife @ home so I'm leaning toward the Supra at this point in time.
