1)but they inspected it to ensure that the parts were good...because they know too well what happens when they get a part from Germany
2) Exactly, it wasn't in production all this time
3) Great AT either way
1) Thats cost cutting and lazy, the chief engineer is known for making vans, and he never made a sports car on his own, always asking by collaborations, worst is he is using the iconic Supra name on his project, Mr Akio is to blame for approving this mess.

2) So you agree its underpowered.

3) Manual is great too.

Based on everything I've learned so far (including this car's ability to be easily tuned for far more than its stock power level with a stout engine), I'm excited for this car on all fronts except that it's currently automatic-only. Hopefully that won't remain the case over the course of the entire model run.

Everything else though has so far been very promising IMO.

@A70TTR, Oh snap!

There are more examples out there but I am not going to chase it all down for you.

And btw, you didn’t answer my question.

So you’re all about “facts” but yet quote probably one of the least credible media outlets?
LOL is he still trying? I'm actually genuinely confused now, there's no way someone has that much of a lack of self-awareness.. He has to be trolling us..

As awesome as it’d be if Toyota was trolling us this whole time, I just can’t see BMW allowing Toyota to deviate that much away from the Z4. Fingers crossed though! If the Supra is sub 3280lbs with 400+ HP, priced around 50-60k, I can see this thing selling like hot cakes.
