LOL you're contradicting yourself because this is yet ANOTHER point to state that the car is crap. Yes I assumed it was a 4 seater because the 86 is a 4 seater and the 86 is smaller AND lighter. Don't get your panties in a bunch, and maybe stop being such an ass 24/7.

Unlike you, I definitely have a life, that's why I didn't spend every waking minute surfing the web for any and all information I could find on a stupid rebadged BMW. I know everything I need to know, it's an automatic only, $50k car with under 400hp, in other words, it's a bad buy. It's about as sure of a bad buy as I'm sure that you're an asshole.

Also how many seats did the last four generations of Supra have? Don't worry old man, I'm on lunch, I'll wait for you to get out your interweb device thingys and Google it up. Or do you need lessons on how to use modern technology properly? Because if these forums are any indication, you're struggling hard.

So forgive me for ASSUMING Toyota was going to hold themselves to their word of maintaining the legacy of the Supra, which by the way, they have so desperately failed to do.

Not everybody will be excited. Some people will be excited, and perhaps some people will buy the car.

Speak for yourself. I am happy it is a two seater instead of a 2+2. Still debating a used Supra or a used Cayman for the future car. I'll have to drive them to see of course.

I get that this car is not what many are after (hell I wouldn't want one at half the price myself) but to say that anybody "fucked up" at this point just because it does not meet your personal criteria is a bit premature. Obviously the people that don't like the numbers, appearance, lack of MT are simply not who they were targeting the car at. Simple as that. Time will tell if they missed their target market's desires.
I mean, it has brake pads and fluid.. stuff I'd sure be doing with a Supra also.

Other than that, it's bone stock, even the tyres.

You have very many problems, 3 of them are with the Supra, the other 96.. who knows

Maybe you should stick a 2Jay-z in your car so you can have your 86Supra dream.

I feel like if Toyota would've said that this is the next gen FR-S,this car would've knocked it out of the park,but to call it a Supra,well I just think it's a mistake. Part of the problem is that who is Toyota actually trying to sell this car to? No enthusiast really wants an underpowered(questionable) overpriced automatic. Not even a dual clutch either,or at least I've not heard anyone say that it's a dual clutch.The only people that I can see buying this car are clueless women,that have owned cars such as TT's,S2000s,Z3s,Z4s(btw,Google BMW Z4 and see what pops up),Nissan Zs,etc.

Only other people that will buy this car are collectors that think it's going to be some sort of collector's item,and Youtubers/car reviewers that feel like they have to buy it.

I have a strong feeling that this car might go down as one of,if not the most disappointing cars of the entire decade.I just feel like the Supra that no one asked for. Had they made it look more like the FT-1 that they originally showed off,maybe enthusiasm would be higher,but as I see it,there's quite a bit of disappointment right now.

huh, even if it was the next gen 86 it would be a joke too...double the price, heavier, smaller, no manual, no backseats, etc...?

All this hate when nobody here has actually seen or driven the car. Reminds me of social media threads about the 86. Almost all haters and no one had driven the car.

@Guff See I told you! Only women want ATs.
Nobody that drives an At can be an enthusiast. It just isn't possible. The people that are "disappointed" are not the ones that would (or in many cases could) buy it anyway. Most of the complaints are the same as when the 86 came out. This is almost EXACTLY what they said they were building all long so why are so many surprised it doesn't meet their own personal ideals?
