I like the curves, but let#s see what kind of concept that is - the "99% production ready minus the wheels, wing and concept bling", or the "nice but none of them will make it.." one. The Z4 concept seems to be more of the second camp, and given the BMW relation, well, I hope this will be less dull in production form.

God I hate those obnoxious wings. They completely ruin a car. Show me one car that has benefited from something like that...go on, I'll wait.

Seriously, what were people expecting. Since day 1 of spyshots, not ever has there been a Supra with Japanese number plates or any other camo than your traditional BMW one, mostly testing both the Z4 and the Supra side by side; it was very obvious that the Supra is fully developed by BMW, and will mostly be a Toyota only by looks (a Z4 coupe with different badges), with even less Toyota DNA than the Fiat 124 has Italian DNA (because that at least has a different, actually Fiat engine); And that's the way things are nowadays, that#s the platform game, anyone expecting some Fast and Furious 1000hp unicorn is living in a dream world; That said, given the straight six RWD BMW drivetrain is still one of the sweetest around, with the right looks this could still be a very nice car, especially given that the Z4 in production guise appears to look rather tame....

Exactly. We saw Supras testing with BMW interior parts...this shouldn't be news.

Lots of passive aggressive negativity here, totally unnecessary.
