2020 Supra-Why I think it is half assed.

:dat: As much as I like to think about :ellis: swaps into things, a :poorvette: is basically the end result and way cheaper. It would be different if you were to swap it into something totally different, like say an E46 wagon or blown up 996... But a 3200 lb 106" wheelbase front-mid engine sports c...

Dat 4Runner Life Doe - Adventures in a T4R

I think this happens more often than not. You'd don't want to be the sucker that spent a bunch of money on a crappy product, so it must be good! Yup. I don’t get it though, I’m not to proud to admit I bought a piece of shit, I’m just happy in the end I was able to recoup my money. Indeed. Often, th...

2020 Supra-Why I think it is half assed.

All this chat has just made me want to buy :mahtroy: 's :wankel: and drop an LS into it. Bringing this back up to actually say that you should definitely not do that. A turbo would be awesome, an LS would be dumb. Buy a C6 if you want an RX8-sized V8 sports car. I've looked into it and it's roughly...

OT 15: New Year, New Poo

Our :doge: usually sleeps fine all the way through the night. Not sure if she was unsettled by me sleeping in another room or what. She's not allowed on the bed, but hearing her pace around or flop on the ground or sniff/snort woke us up constantly. If she does it again tonight, might lock her in w...

2020 Supra-Why I think it is half assed.

The LT5 ZR-1 made 375 in 1990. It was 385 hp and is a glorious engine, but was like $80-100k in 1990 dollars too. The LT1 vette is more comparable to the turbro Supra, though it was cheaper than the Supra by a lot. IIRC the LT1 cars started under $40k vs the $50k Supra. :dat: I love C4 ZR1's. :megu...

Dat 4Runner Life Doe - Adventures in a T4R

Wow. I've heard similar experiences about this company, yet people still buy their products. They've got a winch bumper coming for the ZR2 that I like, but I'll ignore it now. Prinsu has a lot of positive reviews from early on. Then they got bought and taken over by CBI. I can’t imaging they took t...

If just 1 passenger, take the back seat out entirely for more space. But you might get use out of a roof rack.

What do you guys think of Gobi stealth racks btw, are they actually useful, or would you stick to hitch-based attachments?

Corvette is superior to a Porsche in pure performance.

:triggered:
Which is why they are raced far more than porsches. But porsches are far better for the street and country club, because that's the income it takes to have a 150k toy car.
Stop saying things I agree with.

2020 Supra-Why I think it is half assed.

To be realistic, I think toyota thought the unthinkable and just debuted the concept. At the time, Toyota probably did not plan in regards of powerplant, transmission and it's driveability. I think the concept release alone, basically riled the audience waiting for the release. So Toyota basically ...

2020 Supra-Why I think it is half assed.

Wasn't the concept shown like 5 years ago? You can develop a whole new vehicle platform in 5 years. What they did here could have been accomplished in a a year and a half, 2 tops. They didn't develop anything :doe: They waited for the Z4 coupe to be finished. Hasn't the new Z4 been out for a while?...

Right. So what took so long? There's no doubt that the hype machine is at play here. Partially blowing up the 4th gen, but also making the new car seem like the end all be all. This must have been one of the longest publicized development cycles ever, NO car could live up to the hype. To be realist...

Big time.

But at least that thing is a tech wonder. It might have missed the mark of the old one, but it's a legitimate :impressive: car.

Go drive a PDK 911 or Cayman-S etc. You wont fkn miss a manual. Do it with an open mind. If you are serious about putting power down and performance its the only game in town.

Actually now that I think about it. This isn't the first time Toyota did this. What about the gt86/frs a toyota that used a Subaru engine, but then again Subaru has the same model. Also while I agree that it needs to be stepped up. The BMW engine vs the previous Supra engine has one thing in common...
