Nope. All tarted up like a Hong Kong hooker.

No offense to attractive escorts.
You nearly made me spit-take my coffee this morning. ha!


The #1 2020 Toyota Supra just sold at Barrett Jackson for $2,100,000. :eek::eek::eek:
Well, it was for charity. Still, wowsers!!!

far from the concept which is fantastic. I am not a fan of the actual production model. Just reminds me of a miata or 370z or something.

Sadly this is just another of those 'bait and switch' concept to production things that manufacturers continuously drop the ball with.

To me it's like seeing a picture of a delicious burger on a menu and then some flat effort turning up with ingredients hanging out all over the place. Yes, it's still a burger and looks kinda like the picture...but you instantly lose a lot of that desire you had when looking at the picture.

The only thing that concept cars EVER do is disappoint the potential customer base. 'Here's what you could have had' instantly undermines the production vehicle with it's legislated compromises.

Want further proof of this situation? Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Porsche Mission E Concept. Porsche are catfishing us with THAT one.

Rant over. :)

I'm not an accountant...I'd be curious to know what kind of charitable deduction the buyer is able to take!
Hopefully the full amount. My feeling is for this person it was equivalent to me donating $210 to the local food bank...:|

Not too keen on the new Supra. When I was in my twenties I would have jumped on like it like one of Bangkok’s finest. But I like them a bit more chilled out nowadays. Not Wayne Rooney level chilled but understated nonetheless.

I had a 1st generation MR2. Great little package... Career move overseas + baby did not allow me to buy the 2nd generation turbo. Didn't care for the 3d generation.

The new Supra looks like a Pokemon character my son (now 25) used to play with in elementary school!... A lot of the Japanese cars do.

I was considering the Fi... the Mazda MX5 RF, but then I thought, why not go the whole hog and buy a Porsche... Traded in my Mustang GT (stick) at an unbelievably high price and got a 2018 CS CPO. No Japanese car in MY future...
