Probably because they’re too expensive there, and Caymans are a bargain in comparison. It’s crazy to me, as an Australian, that in the UK you could buy a new Cayman for maybe £15K (AU$26K) more than...

When are they going to put an actual sports car steering wheel in the Supra? The current one still looks like it came off a Camry.

I think they need to bring out some new and bolder colours....

White shows off a car’s lines the best because it provides the clearest contrast the wheel arches/tyres, and the glasshouse (especially once tinted). Whether or not this is a good thing depends on...

Yeah it has become common but I’m not a fan of it, reminds me of primer grey.

This is correct, the AT in the twins is slower than the MT. It’s a slushbox, not a dedicated performance box like a DCT or even the amazing ZF 8sp, plus the AT gearing is designed for economy rather...

Honestly, arguing over the colours other people choose is pointless. Colour preferences are highly subjective (and in my case, vary depending on the car itself). If someone wants a beige sport car,...

Keep the photos of Neptune Blue coming! I'm quite liking this colour. If I'm not mistaken it is a bit darker than the 'hyper blue' special editions from the first gen? I wonder if the fact this blue...

I like that they stuck with a pearl red instead of going with a solid red. Solid red looks good on some cars but I think the pearl looks classier on a Z-car.

Smit Oletha - Z8 coupe restomod (not exactly)

Very cool but very expensive restomod of a Z8... except it isn't based on a Z8 at all but a heavily customised Z4 with unique carbon-fibre bodywork and a NA 4.4L BMW V8 under the bonnet.

The new OEM rims actually don't look too bad in silver. I wish this multi-year long fad for black rims would end. A sportscar needs bright rims, and silver is best of all. Classic, provides nice...

Not a fan TBH and I think 4 exhaust tips on a 4 banger are two too many (I also think they are silly on the WRX).

Rather just give it a nice drop and some classic Rays or Work rims.

Except it isn't similar weight. I also don't think they will go with a 330HP version at all, and if they do it would need to be far cheaper than that.

No, this new reveal is the more ‘affordable’ T33 supercar for £1.37M. No fan. The car with a fan in the back is the T50 that retails for £2.36M.

If Porker can call an EV a ‘turbo’ then Toyota can call an EV an MR2 I guess? ;) At some point it becomes a ‘brand’ rather than a descriptor of the engineering.
