They just invested millions in it.

WTF? It's a brand new car. Did they not do market research?

WTF is wrong with this company?!?!
*Correction* Toyota invested $$$ in it.

The deal between BMW and Toyota was that Toyota would pay for the development costs for both the Supra and Z4 in exchange for lending over the powertrain and numerous parts.
I am not sure that is correct.

Toyota did borrow a lot of base BMW components but the development path of the Supra and Z4 was completely independent and far apart from each other.

Savagegeese YT channel explains this very well in his Supra review video.
