That piece basically adds absolutely nothing to what's already known. It doesn't even really have much opinion in it.
Why, Motor Trend, why?
Because it's click bait, that's why:
'Look! We have a SHOWDOWN between the 2020 Supra and its benchmark, the 718 Cayman!...
... Well, no, we didn't actually test the 2020 Supra, so we can't really say anything definitive about it -- or the 718 Cayman, really ...
... but look! It's a SHOOOOWDOWNNNN!.'

Motor Trend has been such a mess for most of this decade I don't even pay attention to it now.
