    Reviews are more positive than I expected. It's in an awkward spot in the market- priced above the American v8 ponies but beneath the entry level 2 seater European coupes. I think it will steal some potential buyers of the F-type and Cayman and kill off the 370z. And I can't see why anyone would buy a Z4 unless they absolutely require a convertible.

    I expect more powerful trims down the line, along with a manual.

    Is anyone here considering this?

    Not considering it but glad they got it out there. I'm also glad it is getting some praise from the reviews considering the early backlash it got. Wish it was priced a bit more competitively considering there are many options at that price point.

    That looks really similar to the BMW Z series..... Do not like the body at all, and I was a fan of the original supra. Plus no manual, no thanks.

    And how does it have a 4.1 0-60 (.5 less than RS), when it has similar power/torque and weight? Or is that auto a DSG box?

    When the overall sentiment is "it's really not that bad!" then I don't know if you can call this a 'success'. I only believe in 1/4 to half of what Toyota says anymore, so I take their story of the new Supra with a huge grain of salt. My personal opinion is that they may have brought the name back, but they sure as hell didn't bring the car back.

    Meh. The best part to see is the hatch, or lack of it. I'd be concerned, if I was interested, with all the BMW guts in it, the engine and the dash/controls/Headunit/etc. Early days. Looks well mod friendly but no interest in the bs transmission (manual or no sale) nor the lack of AWD. Just another fair weather car.
    Don't worry, scrote. There are plenty of 'tards out there living really kick-ass lives. My first wife was 'tarded. She's a pilot now.

    why is this car so damn heavy? 3400 lbs for a coupe with a shorter wheelbase than BRZ? Nearly 200 lbs heavier than a 370z.
