If you look at the Z4, the car sits so much better and the offsets for a stock car are on point. Also it doesn't have the huge cartoonish front fenders and overhang like the Supra. Much tighter body lines.

Tell that to Toyota, who comically undertires (and underpowers) the GT86.

Really what about Z4?

Toyota / Lexus is known to have horrendous fitment.

See post #339, those wheels look even worse on the Z4.

Looks like they are already stating the teasing game. A teaser to Gran Turismo Sport updates.

Well Toyota announced to the press that the Supra is to be unveiled in Geneva in March. The Z4 is later.

Hey Scott - any idea about the width of the new Z4? Will it be wider than the E89?

Z4 has to be more expensive than the Supra so perhaps not all can afford the Z4

I guess you missed the thread where many complained about its styling. Lol boring motor wagon

On a serious note I hope both cars do well! Why? Because if they do it is more likely that they will receive more updates, special editions, more powerful trim levels. And more importantly, a next generation.

The supra has a heritage that you don't get with the z4. I've been a huge fan of Japanese sports cars for years and it was sad to see the major manufacturers move away from the segment for a couple of decades (not counting high end offerings such as gtr and lfa). Now we have a new nsx, and a new supra. I'm hoping Mazda has something in development.

Mazda does have a RX mule driving around. Hopefully that means new RX9.

They need to atone for the rx-8. How did they go from the rx-7 to that thing? The last model rx-7 is one of my dream cars.
