    So the B58C Supra is quicker than the B58D Z4. :popcorn:

    How about that C8 Corvette though!

    lol

    Good review (nit pick, just because they feel different, doesn't mean one feels like a Toyota and one feels like a BMW).

    Toyota hasn't built a sports car in 20 some years. What does a modern Toyota sports car feel like?

    Nobody knows! I wish they'd build one so we could answer that lol.

    Seriously though, you can argue that the GT86 is a Toyota. Subaru could have never built that car on their own. It's a Toyota built from largely Subaru parts, some pre-existing Toyota ones, and some new Toyota and Subaru ones just for that car.

    While this thing... I was looking at the emblem really close in the dealership the other day. Looks pretty similar to the ones on the current fleet. That might actually be made in Japan by Toyota, doubtful much else.

    Would be nice to see a comparo like this one between the current m2 and the Supra. Now theres 2 cars aimed at the same market more or less. Closer then the z4 anyways. Has the m2 been updated to a b58 yet though? I thought it was running the old N series still.

    Also the Celica and MRS were still in production in the mid 2000s, both great cars.

    It feels like the RC-F Track Edition and upcoming LC F. ;) Toyota has specific leather and interior smells, specific door chime, specific turn signal sound etc.

    M2 Competition has the S55 engine from the M3/M4, detuned to 405HP (I consider the M2 to be traction limited so it probably couldn't handle more power).

    I wouldn't call that a sports car though. That's a sports sedan

    Judging by how the new 86 and supra are according to reviews, good handling that's easy to control over/understeer, and suspension that's not too stiff

    I believe modern Toyota sports cars feel hybridized. Personally, I’ve driven both the 86 and BRZ, and the twins feel like both; it can feel like a Toyota and/or Subaru. I believe the same applies to the Supra/Z4 partnership. Bottom line is....modern Toyota sports cars are good and enjoyable to drive. :drive:
