I'll be curious to see if it comes with BT CarPlay.

Since it's got BMW parts under the skin, I wonder if it will be BMW cost parts / maintenance.

All we have been told by Toyota employees there are 10s of thousand dollars of tools needed to service this car for Toyota dealers.

The 2000GT is not the original Supra. More like the LF-A.

OK with the caveat that I'm a BMW guy not a Toyota, I think it looks really really good. I appreciated the old Celicas from way back in the day and honestly think it looks way better than the last generation, which I always thought looked pretty bland.

Reserving judgment until I see one in person. Looks a bit odd in the picture.

Well Toyota views it as a predecessor.

In other news, we have pricing from a credible source.

Quote:
Base 3.0 six cylinder: $49,990
Premium 3.0 six cylinder: $53,990
Launch edition 3.0 six cylinder: $55,250

It will look pretty good once given a couple of exterior mods. It like the size of the car.

Perhaps a modern version of this is what was expected?

I know the origins of the car and yes I see the Z4 rear end......but it still screams FR-S. None the less what a disappointment after soooooo much hype and teasing....Phil

Funny but you know what I'm getting at. The 4th gen from the '90s is the iconic vehicle associated with the Supra name.

Funny- I was thinking about how for a lot of younger people the last gen Supra is what the name is all about. I guess I'm so damn old (48 this year) I remember all the generations of Supra. Perhaps that's why I don't really hold the Supra name in high regard. Most Supras weren't major performance cars.

Makes sense loll.

Regardless, most cars nowadays are over-styled and a bit cartoonish, so this new one fits right in.

So I guess it’s speculated that the base 3.0L will start at 49k.

^interior is not looking too bad there. I’m surprised no ones tried getting a closer look around the pedal area to see if there is any indication of a framework for a manual. But I guessed you’d have to snoop in deeper for that.

Much like the NSX and 8-series, they didn't create a modern interpretation of the original.
there were multiple generations of Supras. The last one wasn't the original!

the 'original' Supra was a variant of the late 70s Celica.

Yes i know there were 4 generations. I was referring to the A80 from the '90s, as that was the most iconic one which everybody equates with the Supra name. Poor choice of words from me.
