Default There was a reason I bumped that Supra thread...

It's because I am picking this up tomorrow:

2021 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 Premium in Turbulence Grey.

Stinger is going bye bye on trade. I actually had decent equity in it, so that's good. Also got a pretty good price on the Supra too.

Sticker is $56,760. Paying $50,758 minus my trade equity and down payment. I actually wouldn't even be buying it had I not had a good few months of crypto gains.

I've been doing pretty well on crypto lately too, though only just getting into it. I funded my Terminator X and other purchases for my E30 build via Gamestop gains.

I don't trust anything except my hands and my microfibers. Had a buddies car go through one of those "touch less" and it wasn't pretty. I'd have to find the photo but let's just say I had to spend a lot of time with the buffer to fix the results.

I wish they had changed the interior a little more to separate itself from BMW. The steering wheel also doesn’t match the sporty car look either.

Great car though, you go through cars like clothing lol. Glad you got rid of the Kia though.

That looks amazing!

Let us know how it performs compared to some of the other vehicles you have owned.

That B58 engine + ZF 8 speed transmission combo is really something .

I heard these recent Supra's handle even better than they did when first launched. Toyota apparently revised the suspension after some further testing/feedback .

What was the thought process in buying this car over other options available to you? Want to understand what was your selection criteria to pick this one. I never can quite understand why people pick a particular car in a certain price bucket. Especially this one seems quite high price to pay for a Toyota. A bit like I was shocked when an individual here bought a Kia Stinger as well where I could’ve thought of other options.

Would be good to understand how a human mind works. For science!

From Car & Driver:

"The Supra is to the Cayman what the Chevrolet Corvette is to Porsche's 911. Toyota's reborn sports car is an unpretentious overachiever that provides thrills similar to the Cayman's at a five-figure discount, and yet most Porsche buyers won't ever consider it."

You just need to look past the badge.

Performance/Handling/Appearance/Build Quality. For a new car in this price bracket, it does quite well in all those areas [IMO].

Oh shi...

Now I must probe more. As for badge etc. it is fine. I get it. Not everything is about a badge. But I just find the Supra quite an ugly car with disproportionate body. Also the interior feels cheap and plasticky (this is coming from a guy who drives a Ford). As for performance, yes it may put up some decent numbers but overall, I still do not quite understand spending 50 Gs on it.

I spent more than that on my truck. It's like a high end merc on the inside though.

Wife's Ford was 48K, and the new Ford F150s are in the upper 30s for the XLT trim. Ford isn't cheap.

Yes, I do. LOL

The good (or bad) news is that upgrading from this to anything I would like now becomes cost prohibitive, so I will probably have this for a while unless I make a lateral move to another vehicle.

The ZF is great. I had one in my Giulia as well. If making a comparison, the Supra reminds me most of my 350z, just much nicer and with more power/better handling.

Sorry to say, but I still have much praise for the Stinger. It is 100% competitive within it's segment and I recommend anyone looking for a combination of performance, near-luxury, technology/options, and plenty of utility (due to 4 doors and a hatch) put it at or near the top of the list.

Sorry some folks can't get over the Kia badge, especially if they are driving a Ford...which I guarantee is objectively worse.

Yeah, it's a BMW interior so I don't get that comment.

Compare the Supra to a BMW Z4, same vehicle.....

KAC, it's kind of funny how critical you are about 95% of cars around here.You always talk about buying such and such cars while harping on other ones about looks/quality etc.

Yet you never put your money where your mouth is. You drive a 12 year old Ford Edge, which let's be realistic, isn't going to win an award for anything.

At this point all you are is talk, based on limited experience with any of the vehicles you criticize. I wouldn't trust your opinion on anything, really.
