  • We were among the first journalists to drive the new Toyota GR Supra and spent time on roads and track discussing many of the internet's complaints about the car. Is this Supra worth the hate and questions it's gotten so far, and can it possibly live up to the hype of the 4th generation? Here's what you need to know.

    Great video as always!
    I like the car but I don’t see it as a sports car but more of a GT. If your going to consider this a sports car, then you need to look at cars like the GT350 and the Chevy Camaro.

        Why do you keep mentioning the 86? The 86 is not in the same universe as the Supra. It’s like comparing a Camry to a Rolls Royce Phantom!

          How does it differ from the Z4?

              Yes it would've sold less if it were offered in manual but also yes they would've sold more if it were offered with BOTH options

                      If the MKIV was never a part of Fast and Furious, it would go the way of the 3000gt. Underrated. I’m still weighing my options because I love how this looks but I live in the Northeast and my fiancé is still finishing up her master’s and I’m not entirely sure that we will move south. If anyone wants a 423whp 09 WRX and willing to pay what I’m looking for, I may be swayed.

                        Yes, it looks better in metal than in pictures. In photos, it’s hideous. In the metal, it’s awkwardly over-styled, but not hideous.

                          Who did Chevy partner with to develop their new Ferrari?...No one? Ford Mustang? I guess it can be done. The Bavarian Motor Supra is a German car, motor, interior, etc. It's pretty cool looking though. Having said that, I really enjoy my Scion FR-S.

                            Supra or M2?

                              you seem unhappy that people will commute in the supra .. how many people can afford to make it a track or weekend only car ?? I would still prefer the cayman.

                                Out of all the cars they could have lifted the engine from I'm glad it's the new Z4.

                                  I never drove a beemer Z I liked, but I never drove one nearly this fast. I would also never spend this amount of money on a car knowing I'd be spending countless hours and thousands of dollars also voiding the warranty with a transmission swap. So much more better to go get an already excellent M3. But, I would still like to see a head to head comparison to the BMW's it's derived from and maybe some it isn't.

                                  Clearly it's a decent sports car. Clearly it isn't a Supra. What I want to know is if it brings extra to the table vs other beemers. And you guys are the right people in the right place to do it.

                                  Please? :D

                                          This Supra is just a BMW tuned by Toyota. Whether it's good or bad, only time will tell. Hopefully, Toyota replace all the seals with actual gaskets.

                                              Great video! Note that I believe it has been revealed by an analysis from a car magazine that the Supra does not in fact have a lower center of gravity than the 86/BRZ. Someone at 'yota was fibbing.

                                                Best car ever. Previous Supra looks fugly compared to this.

                                                          The 2020 Supra is trying very hard to make me fall in love with it because it does seem like a great car even though most MKIV fans balk at the the BMW partnership. It's taking awhile for the styling to grow on me too because I wasn't too big on the strange tear duct vents around the lights at first, but I'm liking it ever more slightly the more of these 2020 Supra videos I watch. I can't help but to think of the ridicule I'll get from my 2JZ purist buddies though If I were to actually buy one. LOL
