Horizontal panel gaps right through the wheel arches does it :/
not a fan tbh, i much prefer the original.
Im sure its been said already in this thread but its basically just a reskinned z4
Have you seen this?
The only thing I dislike about the design is all on the front arch and wing area. The panel lines just look wrong/awkward and the slightly swollen arch makes the whole front end look higher than necessary from any kind of side on view.
I agree. I wish they'd gone for a narrower bonnet so they could make the entire front wing one piece, it would really smooth out the lines of that front.
Same for the rear arch - those panel joints are really quite jarring. I wish they'd gone for larger pieces to give it a smoother overall look. I wonder if going for smaller panels is a measure to save on manufacturing costs.
well.. That makes a lot of sense lmao. Still sucks that they ruined a classic
The classic hasn’t changed, that car is still out there. It’s not like they can release the same car again.
The old ones are getting rarer though. Soon you'll have to pay more for an old Supra than one of these new ones when they hit the used market in a few years (manual one ofc)
Couldn’t agree more, love the original so much
This gen looks the best:
This is how cars like the s2000 are and they're much better for it - can't be that expensive? It's also possibly linked to some h&s regulation preventing it - isn't there a few about impact protection around that area of cars now?
Looks absolutely sexual!
Though idk why, but despite the "similarities" I never really liked the 2nd and 3rd gen versions! The 4th however was a beauty too
I feel just the same, first and forth generation are pure filth
"the Supra and z4 each has its own distinct body, interior design and driving dynamics" - Chris whalton
Chris whalton are you kidding me ?? The interior is 100 million percent bmw, like its not even funny.. They havnt even bothered to change the gear selector and controls. The lcd screen is blatant bmw.
But the gt86 has a very low bonnet and doesn't have weird panel gaps like that.
The only other thing I can think of is maybe it's part of how the made the car so rigid without using carbon fiber.
Same here, which is a shame because the yellow is otherwise really nice on the car.
Dem panel gap tho.
Spoken like a man with great taste!
You guys seen this?
Looks gorgeous to my eye that does!
