Default 2020 Supra on Shenandoah - The Smoking Tire

I can't decide if I love it or hate it! (The Supra!...nobody likes the Shen in short course format!)

I like it. Is the car really louder inside than out? I wonder if you can buy the track in itunes?

I've never driven that layout, thankfully.

No kidding! I mean, I don't particularly love the shen or the carousel but I hate the bus stop. Best part of the track is going over the blind crest.

I saw the Supra at the DC Car show. It was meh for me. Transmission sounds great. Very German...

It's no more Supra than the abomination GM is calling the up optioned $50k+ Blazer! I read someone refer to it as the Camaro of SUVs...uh what?

His pedal work is the worst. Make up your frigging mind. Power or brake.

Could not get past the droving enough to evaluate the car.

Lots of chatter on the internet how Toyota improperly positioned the *new Supra within the segment stating that it's historical competitors were GTR and NSX and not Z Car, Cayman, Mustang, Camaro...I remember the Supra when it was just a faster version of the Celica so I'm not sure I agree.

Rambling on here; the new car is clearly positioned to go after Cayman, and, I believe back in the heyday the 944/968. But I just don't believe many Porsche owners would defect for this version of the Supra. Anyway, comparo piece between old and new.
