The Supra is reborn as a focused sports car that relies on the BMW Z4 components.
The extroverted two-seater is powered by a supersmooth and punchy 335-hp, 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder engine from BMW.
That smooth punch is routed through a slick eight-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels.
The driver can override gear choices with paddles via the steering wheel.
Sport mode sharpens responses and amplifies the exhaust sound.
Handling is super-responsive and agile, and the car can be playful on a track.
The ride is stiff but tolerable.
Getting in and out is a chore, and visibility is severely limited.
The BMW iDrive infotainment system takes some getting used to but is logical.
Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning with steering assist are standard.
Coming this summer, the 2021 model will get a power boost for the six-cylinder engine, and a new four-cylinder turbo model.
