    The internet is on fire with opinions about the new Toyota Supra and BMW Z4, but it seems that there isn't much in the way of facts. We decided to dig into some research and find out what the truth actually was behind the Toyota and BMW partnership.
    Spoiler alert: Most of the internet is wrong. (Surprise, I know!)
    This took hundreds of hours of research and translation from German and Japanese as well as a number of in-person interviews with the actual designers and engineers from both the BMW and Toyota teams. Below I'll drop the online references we used in order to get the information presented in this video, feel free to check them out!

    I'm sitting here reading through the comments with a little bit of disbelief in the disrespect going on. How can people make a full judgment on a vehicle when they've not driven it yet? They made a saying for that situation in particular. I thought your video gave everyone more than enough reason to WANT to drive this car, but it seems like most the people who commented hardly watched at all, and had their mind made up before they had even started. It's people like this that are ruining the car culture and car scene. Forcing good, well made, torch carrying cars into the ground because they couldn't get off their high horse of nostalgia. Fantastic video and keep doing what your doing. It is, as you said, the UNTOLD TRUE STORY, that people need to hear.

      It doesn't matter Gabe, nobody is denying the fact that it's a fun car to drive, because after all it is a BMW Z4 shell with a redesigned exterior styling. But if you've ever owned any BMW's you'll know that this chassis is simply a BMW. Great car, just don't lie to yourself and say it's not a BMW, because when you strip it all down to its bare essentials it is just a retuned Z4. Prove me wrong if you can, but I won't hold my breath. If you choose to deny the facts that I have just stated that's fine, you can lie to the world but you can't lie to yourself.

      Heres more useless internet opinions and my 2cents:
      Personally I can't get behind the car because of how much of it is a BMW. I am almost 1000% positive if i got behind the wheel I would think its a fun well balanced car as everyone who i usually agree with in the car journalist world has said so. But The Supra brand to me just isnt a bmw. can't get behind how much the interior is just bmw at least put in toyota interior even if its worse lol. I am almost positive a non bmw supra would have been worse but it would have been a Supra and more something i could get behind, i mean the beloved mk4 is pretty underwhelming stock and pretty much a boat but thats not what made it "THE SUPRA". On the other hand I also think that this new supra looks pretty good.. but these things arent enough to get me to personally shell out 40-50k for a car. It's not like the car is bad it is ultimately just a bmw M sport driver orientated car retuned by toyota to make it more reliable so it's probably amazing, in fact the only new car I am actually considering buying rn is an M2. but thats supposed to be a BMW and this isn't. But the car just can't be super well balanced and fun, Theres alot of cars that fit that criteria that you could go out and buy as a car person it needs that extra what i like to call "emotion" to get me to really want to spend my own money on a car especially when we are talking about the flagship name SUPRA and how much time Toyota took to develop the car. A car that is a jdm icon that shares a large percentage of its DNA with a z4 no matter how good that car is in my eyes, isnt a supra I can spend my own money on. At the end of the day it just comes down to what will get someone to spend their actual money on, and we'll see if toyota got it right with the whole bmw z4 auto thing when the sales numbers are in. But When they give it a manual in a year or two most of the internet will shut up lol. - Heres also something I'd like to note, I feel like toyota already messed up by the fact that videos like this exist. First impressions are everything especially in the car world. the reality is most people never drive any of these cars they talk about or see, but the car community perception of a vehicle sets in fast and sticks. Think miata. Great great car probably one of the greatest cars to ever be made period, but theres a perception about the vehicle for no reason at all. Toyota just should have never gave the internet and the car community this chance at doubting the new supra in the first place, they just put themselves in a hole from the start that could have easily been avoided. Instead of just reviews about how well balanced the car is, every single review and video on the car is about "is it a bmw", "is it really a supra", "its better than you thought" or "what toyota Should have done" etc etc. But now the media is out and theres no going back, and the new supra will forever hear the running joke of "but its just a z4" said by at least one person at every meet you go to.

      @Tegra thank you that's what I've been saying all along underneath this is a BMW but Toyota is selling it as a Toyota in the market but in reality it's a BMW suspension motor everything is BMW

    The intro of this video at 1:15 is PROVEN WRONG! The Supra is entirely made by Toyota, including the body. The engine is a B58 tuned by toyota to 400+ HP and can easily be modded. I know the entirety of this video is a opinion. This comment isn't. It's also been said by the creator of the supra. Also, TheXvidrs with the car have drove it and had a blast in it.

      Not really a good idea to use an LC 500 platform since Toyota was aiming for track performance comparable to a Cayman.

    My compliant with the Supra isn’t that it has a BMW motor, no. My issue is did you see the Calty FT1? The final product looks like a lazy attempt with fake vents, no active spoiler, etc. that’s why, I hate the Supra

    Lazz Lazz 10 days ago

    If you guys think Toyota has just grabbed a bunch of BMW b58 crate engines, tuned them and dropped them into the GR..... then you’ve done no real research. There are over 50 revised parts on this engine that Toyota had BMW re-manufacture to bring it up to Toyota’s reliability standards. Cylinder head, water pump, valve springs, oil pump gears, oil pan and heaps more. This version has its own engine code at BMW, and you will not see it in any BMW model, especially the Z4. Wait until tuners start ripping them apart, then you’ll be reading heaps more about it.

  • Speed Demon
    Speed Demon 12 days ago

    BMW approached Toyota not the other way around and once they determined the basics like drivetrain they went their separate ways without the partnership this car wouldn't have happened. Toyota designed its own body, tuned the suspension and engine all by themselves. The supra and z4 are different.

    • Speed Demon
      Speed Demon 11 days ago

      @Gordon People who have driven both say they handle very differently because Toyota tuned the suspension separately so they aren't the same

    This really shows the different dynamics of each company, BMW was surprised by Toyota's commitment to quality and Toyota was surprised by BMW'S ability to throw money at problems. Toyota really took em to school on quality control and none will disagree that they needed the wake up call.

    I don't know why this is a big deal because Subaru did the same thing with Toyota.
    I find it pretty disgusting that people keep criticising the car when it was a joint development and it has been done before. This is the kind of thing ruining the car community.
    Enough said

    • FunnyAtTimes I
      FunnyAtTimes I 26 days ago

      A joint development effort should result in a new car with it's own name,not the name of a legend in the world of the medium priced sports cars...but I guess,they have to sell it somehow,so why not resurrect the dead and make money.Subaru and Toyota should've called their joint creation "SubToy".

    • Neito Monoma
      Neito Monoma Month ago +1

      Because they envisioned one car only and made it happen.

    That's the best looking BMW in many years. But HEY it's NOT a BMW it was "tuned" by Toyota even tho BMW badges are all over the engine bay, interior and chassis. They're not fooling anyone and only the most hardcore desperate fans consider it a Toyota. No Toyota parts, manufactured in Europe by BMW means IT'S A BMW.... What pisses some of us off the most is this fucking car represents the future of "globalism". Soon every car will be under one corporate umbrella swapping parts and name tags.

  • SirNightFox

    Its a Toyota Supra. Listen to the designer. He was the original Supra designers protege. The only thing is it had a BMW motor. If a chevy Volt had a 2jz-gte motor, would you call it a Toyota? The Supra was designed for tuners, having connections and purposely built room for common add ons. If you have the money to buy one, put a 2jz in it, if it makes you unhappy.

    Sorry, it wouldve been better off if they didnt bring back the Supra at all and call this pile of garbage a Celica instead.. BMW is trash with infamous check engine light after check engine light. Its a disgrace for Supra heritage! Rebadged BMW Z4 is not cutting it for us real Supra enthusiasts! The only positive outcome is that since this new 2020 Supra is a laughing stock of garbage, it just increased the value in mark 4 and 3 Supras! The new Supra should have been a real Toyota with a newer version engine maybe calling it a 3JZGTE along with a manual transmission that would be made to be in competition with the Nissan GTR or Acura NSX!! With all the BS thoughts from people that encourage rebadging a Supra is ok, Im surely going to buy a used older BMW Z4 and add a Toyota and Supra badge on it too! This step above Miata like roadster sized garbage is really meant for girlly men or women who dont know any better or for those who dont know how to drive stick.. This is not a sports car! This is just a novice style sporty car.. 😅😂😂

      The Supra was never meant to be a supercar, Toyota is staying to their roots by staying as a sports car. While on the other hand, the R35 is a supercar. I like Tada San because he wanted to stay to the roots of the Supra, a fun, street, trackable sportscar that you can enjoy driving. At the end of the day, the Supra was never meant to be a supercar.

    Toyota failed miserably on the body design.....it is just plain UGLY, UGLY, UGLY! Should have let BMW lend a hand, bought a third party designer....or stolen a designer from another brand like so many manufacturers are doing today. Having owned BMW cars and motorcycles (as well as Toyota and Hondas, etc...), gonna bet the Toyota will be much, much, much more reliable (although past Supras never came close to Toyota reliability) and cheaper to maintain.....but still UGLY!

    This pure propaganda. Is the new supra a rebadged old Z4? No. Is the new supra a coupe version of the new z4. Yes. They developed the platform together. So the 2 are on the same platform. Stated clearly in this video.
    And, with the exception of the small part of the digital dash right in front of the driver, the entire interior is identical to the new Z4 (and a lot like any other BMW).
    The drivetrain is mostly BMW, and the only part that isn't is a generic automatic found everywhere.
    So the body's style is toyota, but the car is built close to where all the BMW parts are, with a generic trani and a shared platform. Same wheelbase, same engine, same rear end as the BMW.
    If you asked if the Z4 is really a rebadged Supra, you'd then have find which hidden parts were actually Toyota. Not too many. And none at all visible. And all were part of the "platform", and don't have Toyota labels.
    Pop the hood on a supra: actual manufacturing labels on many of the underhood parts. The only Toyota label: the bagde.
    Hmmmmm...

    It's too bad they put a junk boxer in the Toyota 86. Should have put a reengineered 2jz in it

    Oh God, if BMW is going to start building Toyotas, watch Toyota parts and repair costs skyrocket.

      @God of destruction It has BMW pedigree, but as the video clearly outlines it's not a carbon copy like what many people seem to suggest. Watch it again, this was a one off partnership, you can argue how much involvement one party had over the other, but it was a partnership.

      Terry, did you even watch the video and understand it? It was a one off partnership to build a sports car.

    Outstanding research and commentary ... but, that music repetition was enough to make me enable closed captioning and turn off the audio. Regardless, as an owner of an original 1978 Supra, this feels too much like a PR grab rather than the production of a real Supra. At least the 86 felt like a Toyota when I drove it. I'll hold my final opinion until I've driven one, but for now, everything that I've seen tells me that this will be more of a BMW feel than a Toyota feel.

    Wonderful piece on automobile engineering. In my opinion, partnerships are necessary in today's world. And partnerships often create fresh perspectives for an individual line of thought which was previously isolated from the other one. A wonderful example is right here. And though emissions control are necessary in the coming times, to avoid loosing our planet's survivability, without partnerships each Goliath(read Piston-wheels) will turn to dust in front of the new David(read E-cars) eventually. But I don't like the idea of autonomy; no matter what, or how comforting it could be; would be the death of fun in driving. And certainly after a few decades, people will just forget how to drive a car.

    I had a completely different opinion of this vehicle before seeing your eye-opening video. I, like many others I presume, just assumed Toyota paid out some cash to BMW, changed some logos and a body panel or two, changed some visual optics in the infotainment panel, and, for some reason, de-tuned the engine, all before slapping an exorbitant price tag on it and shipping it out the door. Now I’m much better informed, and that can never be a bad thing. Thanks for the illuminating reporting.

    I still remember when you first started your channel, and look at you now. Whether you know it or not, you inspired me to start my channel. Hopefully in two years I’ll get my million subscriber play button! Thanks for everything!

    As much as I want to hate this car for not being all Toyota, you've definitely shed new light and it's definitely growing on me.
