All three of these vehicles look better.
No factor in the less-than-Toyotalike reliability of a BMW and the prospect of a Supra gets more sour by the second.
Can't confirm, but reports are saying the car will start at 49k, which would undercut an automatic stingray by about 9k. The vette will beat it 0-60 by about a full second, which is pretty huge.
The Mustang will run circles around it and costs less, but that's true for a 911 as well. It will be interesting to see how it handles in comparison.
Gonna reserve judgment until reviews come in, but it can really go either way.
