We just want different things from our Supra . Nothing wrong with that, but I won't keep the car past 5/60K miles. I doubt I will keep it after 3 years. I got a great deal on my GT350 and SS1LE so I sold them with the current market and grabbed the Supra because I got a good deal on it and I enjoy the car for my purposes. I really wanted a GT4 but the market is nuts and there were very few and I refused to pay over MSRP. So grabbed hte Supra for now. I have a deposit on a C8 Z06 but realistically won't get it until model year 2023. And if the markups are still crazy I will sell it since I am paying MSRP.So you assume that I’m a peasant who works at a supermarket so I have nothing to lose or something lol? I don’t street race either. Me and other Supra drivers rent out a drag strip when we want to have fun. My local shop has at least 4 GTRS, corvettes, Cadillac’s and 911 turbos with over 1000hp each. It’s nothing new to me. I considered the RS3 in my choices for a sports car as well as the LC 500 and 911 as well. LC 500 is too slow for what you pay for and modifications are limited. 911 has no personality especially the exhaust. I did not get an RS3 instead of Supra because the RS3 looks like an a3 and doesn’t elicit the kind of emotions that the Supra does especially in the ultra limited refraction color. RS3 five cylinder turbo is unique but body style is too common and cramped as well as manual driver seat adjustment(foolish for a 60k car). This was an emotional purchase for me and my 4th car currently. The Supra is in no way practical and serves zero logical purpose for any person especially people who have multiple other vehicles. If you’re worried about warranty, you bought the wrong car. 3 year/36k mile basic and 5 year/60k mile powertrain warranty won’t save you from the plastic fantastic engine from bmw. I’m swapping out the plastic parts for metal ones that the vast Supra aftermarket has to offer. I don’t care about AWD because of McLaren had the same mindset as you, they wouldn’t exist today. Traction limits are not going to stop me from building my motor and entire drivetrain. It’s called ambition. Some people have it. Others don’t. Some take the easy way out. Others like the challenge in front of them. GT-R has no place in my driveway. It’s old, looks bland and very common now. Whatever traction it may have, it lacks in looks and interior. You buy a sports car for emotion and it’s performance capabilities, not warranty and AWD. Like I said to the troll Axix23, don’t be upset when a tuned Supra takes you for a ride to gapplebees. The potential is there but the driver is the handicap.
I live in rural New England with tons of backroads. I do 4-6 track days a year (sometimes more, sometimes less) and I tend to do more suspension mods than power mods because power mods don't do much for me and my driving style. I bought the Supra because I like the size, and power to weight ratio, but really liked the handling and styling. It has a great balance of comfort and luxury for me. Most of my mods will be for either aesthetic purposes or things like suspension/handling. I don't drag race at the track or on the street. I really don't care if some douche at a stop light wants to take me to gapplebees. I guess I am comfortable in my manhood. In the past 5 years I can maybe count on one hand the number of times people tried to race me in any of my sports cars. Maybe it's because I either ignore it or don't pay attention.
