I'm very surprised to hear that people have this opinion. I had an F32 before my F22 and the build quality and amount/type/feel of plastics seemed exactly the same to me. F22/F30/F32 interiors are basically the same anyways, the center console design is just a touch narrower on the F22.

With near 100% certainty, there will be no manual transmissions anywhere.

The G87 will be available with a 6MT.

Damn I should go buy that 2017 6mt 240 that's been on the local CL for a few months now.

Sorry yes, only the G87. Looking forward to seeing that car. Basically a newer/better/faster version of the Supra, but available with a manual.

Perfect

The Zupra is absolutely horrific in the looks department

I had the feeling people are comparing the F22 to the current G-series 3er, i.e. the G20. The interior quality of the G20 is considered much better by most compared to the F30 (or F22).

The G20 is leaps and bounds better.

Well that's apples to oranges then. You can't say "the 2 series interior sucks compared to the 3 series" if by 3 series you mean the G20.

The F22, F30, and F32 interiors are nearly identical. As they were designed to be.

The MKIV Supra that everyone wants and idolizes has:

A 6-speed manual
back seats
twin turbos

I don't know how they got it so wrong, but thankfully the M2 Comp has all of those things and Toyota was even nice enough to make me reconsider my rule of "Nah, i probably don't want to own a BMW."

Supra looks great from the back and decent from the front, when viewed in person its actually quite the looker. The 2-series was always ugly, even the M2 (aside from beautifully wide fenders). The new 2 coupe, with its horrendous headlights, front bumper and taillights seems to ensure the tradition of poor design continues.

That said, like the 2 coupe before it, Im certain it'll be stellar to drive and the wider fenders on the non-M is an awesome new feature. It does looks bigger/fatter all around though. I truly hope its lighter and definitely hope it's at least not any heavier! It was already quite the porker as is.

I've had the M235i and then an M2. Loved both. Looking forward to the new models.

Perhaps this makes a comeback as it appears there is still higher trim version of Supra coming.

Not sure why they couldn't do this with the G80
My g-d. What a beauty!! Why couldn't the M2 just look exactly like this?!

I agree that the Zupra looks much better in person. I've seen a few modded versions rolling around that look really aggressive.

Not only looks better in person but the first thing I noticed was how small it is. It's smaller than the Toyobaru twins.

The silhouette of this thing is exactly what it should be. Can't wait to see it.

The Supra looks great...I would have one beside my M2C if it has a manual

The Supra will be another JDM (BMW at heart ) classic in 20 years time if it comes with a manual
