I'm getting Carrera GT vibes from this
This is why I question if the Supra can keep up with the Cayman. If Porsche links the Supra is a legitimate threat, they can/will update the next year and I’m not sure if Toyota/BMW will be so quick to update.
IMO, I don't think Porsche is feeling any pressure from Toyota about the 2021 Supra even with the HP increase. Porsche is so far ahead of Toyota that it's not even a comparison. The 6 cyl Supra was compared against the 718 4 cyl turbo. With Toyota being so secretive about a potential GT4 model that it's only hurting them. The longer you take, the longer you get left behind. Not even a mention of a street GT4 that go against the street Porsche GT4. Rubbish!
Test drive one! You'll be blown away. The 6 speed on the previous GT4 was very crisp, throws were short and the shift was bolt-action. The updated PDK... impressive.
They most definitely aren’t threatened by Toyota right now. The further up in performance they go, the more a FR inline 6 hurts the Supra since a mid mounted flat 6 has a higher ceiling.
Even if Toyota just plans on competing in sales and not track times, they still need a road going GT4 model with a manual to take sales away from the Cayman GT4.
I do plan on test driving a GTS 4.0 with PDK when I get the chance. I drove an AMG GT the other day and I think that is a little more my style though. Just wish the AMG GT C/R would come down in price a little bit lol
