2020 Toyota Supra - Look at the interior - Anything familiar??

Came across this article about the new Supra...

Interesting radio, heat/ AC interface. And that display screen and drive options look awfully familiar.

It's a defined z4.

Saw the Supra yesterday at Barrett Jackson. Sure does look like BMW inside. Car looks really good.

This car has more in common with an F30 interior than the Z4. Literally right out the BMW surplus parts bin. Makes sense as the G20 is now in production good way to dispose of leftover parts in inventory that won't be needed as replacement parts for existing F30 for awhile.

Yea I didn't realize that they were developed together and will be built in the same plant...kinda wish there were more differences between the two.

I know vehicles are globally sourced at this point but German parts blatantly in a Japanese car just doesn't roll of the tongue right.

The E90 has a GM transmission. The MKIV had an engine co developed with Yamaha and a Getrag transmission. Tesla model s and x have interior pieces from previous gen Mercedes. I guess it's better than if it came from a Hyundai.

Electronic E-brake says a lot about this car's target customer.

BMW basically made this car for Toyota. They are pretty much using a Z4.

They also made sure to detune it for them so as not to cannibalize z4 sales. Though the starting price of this is very close to 4 cylinder z4

Of course. I never expected Toyota to collaborate with BMW. Although the Supra already has so much hype toward it, BMW has to be able to tame it.

Supra looks good. All said and done, the boy racer in me would probably take one over a Z4. I just hope the price point does it justice and we don't see a trillion of it on the road like the FRS. Fully realize that last comment makes me sound like an elitist turd.

This is better looking than the new z4. They should bring back the old one but with the new engine.

It is a bit strange, but monumental for both car companies. I'm sure Toyota is thrilled to collab with bmw. One major difference is the Supra is a 2 seater. The z4 has "backseats".

Collab is the future....Ford and VW just announced plans as well for 2022.

The old Supra was a 2 + 2. I guess they needed space for the subwoofers.

I honestly hate everything about this vehicle. Price, aesthetics, performance, nothing about this car warrants a $50K+ price tag.

Get a Ford Mustang GT 5.0 for way less money, with rear seats!
