I can't see anyone over the age of 35 driving that car, but $35k or whatever it is is a lot more affordable than at minimum $50k.

    Yeah, I don't see anyone cross shopping a Cayman or TTS with the Supra even though performance and price are kinda sorta maybe in the same range. For exactly that reason too - Audi or Porshe are targeted to someone in their late 30's or 40s whereas the Supra is very much a 20's boy racer demographic.

    This isn't even a case of "bean counters passing along a good deal" to justify the lack of Toyota DNA. Damn it Toyota you have a freaking RC-F to re-badge if you want.
    Yep. It has these weirdly positioned "vents" on the hood - they're fake. The rear fender that has a fender on a fender and a vent - fake. And don't get me started on the front of the car. The other thing that's annoying is that the front bumper has the proximity sensors that stick out like a sore thumb. They didn't even try to blend or hide them.

    Oh, it also has less HP than the Z4.

    If you can stomach "Schmee," perhaps the most annoying dude on the planet, he gives an overview of the car:


    Why anyone would buy this over a well-optioned Camaro or Mustang is beyond me...

    Someone posted a pic showing all of the fake vents it had on it and they were all over the place. It was way more than you would think.

    Supra TRD Concept revealed by Toyota.

    Basically front and rear spoilers, side skirts, more fake vents on the door, and different wheels. No power increase, no braking or suspension mods.

    Just lol, Toyota.

    His intro makes me want to immediately exit the video. Once he gets going, he's not so bad. The way he says "HI GUYS I'M SHMEE HELLO" and that look on his face is just cringey though.

    Well if bland looking middle aged white guy gives it the thumbs up, it must be worth it.

    Prolly had a 4 Camry's before it.

    There are a few people who are willing to pay more for less performance just because its Japanese and has a famous name. People who don't know cars will assume it has way more performance and technology than it actually has.

    I'd never buy one just due to the existence of the timing chain being on the rear of the the engine. The motor has to be pulled to maintenance it! BMW claims the chain should be good for the lifetime of the motor, but you have guys all over the BMW forums replacing their chains. Never understood why the Germans felt the need to over complicate errr engineer their vehicles. Newer VW Golf's don't even have a drain plug for their trans or a dip stick. That means in order to change the fluid you suck the fluid out, hope you got it all out and then blindly start dumping fluid into the trans fill hole, oh yea the fluid is over $25 per quart and you need like 6 quarts to top it off.

    the 124 is a turbo so it has more power potential though.

    The 1.4T is an engine you stay far, far away from.

    The dude is "Schmee" and he's a ridiculously obnoxious (and also rich) dude from across the pond who owns more cool cars than I ever will, and also reviews them.

    Yeah, there is nothing inherently wrong with them. Also best sounding 4 banger ever made pretty much.

    I'm glad that at least outside the company they dont have a bad rep, most people that work on developing them get annoyed because calibrating them is a chore.
