    Alright, so I finally made that video. I had to cut a tonnn of stuff out to keep it from being a feature-length film, but this hits all the bases of the development timeline and touches on the decisions made by the Toyota and BMW teams during the development process of the Supra and Z4.

    Good video @Guff. You did a great job of packing a lot of good info into the time that you used.
    Hopefully you won't get flooded with the typical "Buh buh... ITH NOT A THOOPRA!!!!!!" comments.

    Awesome video. I am highly against this co-development modeling this car as a Supra, but I can certainly appreciate the effort it took to produce this video. There is a lot of arguments to cover, a lot of detail to straighten-out as well as a lot of unanswered questions to research and uncover. I have learned a lot watching this. But this car is cursed.

    Toyota would of had a much greater success on this co-development, more than the 86, if they had never modeled this car as a 'Supra'.

    Fantastic video.

    The Supra exists, that's all the justification needed for the BMW co-development.
