Actually evo drove the pre-production prototype and said it was very good. If it ever comes out with a proper manual, I'm getting it. The interior is blah but I love the exterior and the engine choice is excellent.

It's bloody re-dressed BMW. If they would have leaned towards the concept design they could have asked for blank cheques. Leave it to Toyota to define mediocre yet again! :nt:

In this financial climate it's hard to justify a brand new sports car to the bean counters. Pretty much every manufacturer nowadays shares platforms. Look at the whole VW group lol. Akio Toyoda would not put out a car that drives badly. Have faith. Virtually no concepts survive the transformation into production form. There are always massive changes. Plus it's just a car, I don't know why people care so much. The last gen Supra wasn't exactly loved. They sold like less than 3000 units in the states and looked like beached whales in stock form lol

People care because some are passionate, this is the Supra, it is legend. Look at me defending and praising Japanese car culture LOL :rotfl:

LOL

It's only a "legend" cause of the fast and furious movie and cause of the hilariously overbuilt engine for the power level. Other than that it's a bloated looking mildly quick GT that is too softly sprung

I disagree, the legend was created well before FATF :popcorn:

The one and onry.

Comes with a figurine of Max himself and an acrylic case. This is soon to be sold to someone though. It's a fantastic model, one of the most striking in my collection, but I'm giving this guy up to pursue the making of an NA1 NSX and Rallycross RS200. :rockon:

Composite means no zinc pest to me! But ABS also means going brittle if kept to continually air out.

So I got off my lazy ass and finally took photos of this thing I paid way too much for to win in an auction. Although it was overpaid, I got to meet the owner in the next town so I got away with not paying for shipping! (score!!!)

Had some light painting stick that people use outdoors, but I found it was way too bright for the way I work. Tried my best to keep the lighting relatively dramatic. Some of you guys know how I love taking pictures in a dark basement.

Nice photos! I don't want to rain on your parade, this model is seriously prone to paint rash; I have the originally in Black. It's a decent piece with the exception of the solid grilles.
