They're all wounded me about it not packing successor to the to JZ not being based on Twitter platform and whatever.
I'm not gonna go down that rabbit hole because I don't care but what I do care about is if it's a good sports car
Any good performance car has to look the part and raise your heart rate as you walk towards it and the Supra does an okay job of that.
There's some fourth gen styling inspirations sprinkled into the front end that's mashed up with some cues from the F one car's nose.

Here the leather buckets in this launch edition model are comfy and supportive, there's a lot of headroom, and a 10.2 cubic feet trunk that can accommodate a couple of weekend bags.
I can see taller people banging their heads on the low door openings getting in though, and if you don't like BMW buttons and knobs for some strange odd reason, you're not going to like it in here.
The infotainment system is an 8.8 inch touchscreen and center controller is BMW drive so it does an emerald job running navigation a JBO sound system and Apple carpooling.

Firing things is an inline six cyllinder engine, just like every other super V4.
The three roar turbocharge unit makes 335 horsepower and 365 pound feet of torque, the later of which is available between.
Between 1600 and 4500 RPM for muscular midrange grunt.
And with an always excellent ZF eight speed automatic transmission that also offers a snappy manual shift option, the super hit 60 miles per hour power in just 4.1 seconds.

And it doesn't sound bad either with a crackling exhaust note, like, well, a BMW.
The three pedal people probably have picked up on that I haven't mentioned anything about a man transmission.
And that's because the Supra doesn't have one.
It's auto only, but thankfully a good one.
Though I'm not saying a stick wouldn't be awesome, because of course, it would be.
Helping the super handle is a perfect 50/50 weight distribution.
