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.

I work for an OEM supplier for Nissan. I have to say that this is really embarrassing for Toyota. They care more about producing a cliche easy mass production car with no effort. They are simply looking for an easy sell with high profit margin. There was no creativity or Toyota touch in the design process. They just took the easy way out partnering with BMW and now they’ve got a mediocre product. Absolute disappointment.

Looks like the LC 500 is the the only option for a Supra replacement. This is pure garbage.

If Toyota and BMW does finally develop a manual transmission, I should hope that it is at least equal or better than the one found in the current Corvette. In the short term until the price of electricity comes down to a very reasonable level, we will continue to see more refined petrol powered vehicles. Eventually when it does arrive to the point of time, we will be using electric powered vehicles or other type of powered vehicle (hydrogen etc)

Looks like an ND miata. After watching the video, they met an interesting engineering challenge. Lack of a manual gear box is sad but that's just the direction the world is moving. Unfortunately the price tag puts this car in the "I liked Supras when I was young and now I have some disposable income cause I'm 50" range. Should be a fun one to see but I'm predicting RX-8 like sales. Reboots are hard. Trying to capture new peoples hearts while staying true to the old. It's not an easy thing. Because the people judging it don't actually want a new car. They want to feel like they did when they first saw a Supra. Or first sat behind the wheel of one. When they were young. But time goes in one direction and you only live once. Without having driven it I say good job guys. I think they pulled off something special here. I think the combination of upfront engineering from BMW coupled with the durability testing from Toyota could have lead to a race quality engine. I'm sure the turbo set up will have to get scrapped by the after market community but with a little luck the internals will be OK with that and we'll start seeing some 4 digit HP numbers.

Great information! It'll be interesting to see what people say once the car is released. The new supra was never going to be a second 2jz or anything, regulations just don't allow it. With auto, you look at cars like the GTR and have to think, does it matter? My preference is always manual, but I have to admit automatic transmission has come a long way. Also its strange how after this, I'm excited about the supra, but still not too fussed about the z4..? Great video!

The last over-rated bar of soap styled Supra that everyone seems to love and remember was just a rebadged SC300 Lexo touring sedan lol... Deep down EVERYONE knows bmw drivelines and mechanicals are not toyota reliable and I think thats why the negative vibe. People were expecting in house toyota I-6 w 500hp to play with mustang/camaro kid cars and keep up w vettes and stuff...instead they are served a Paris Accord 'climate freindly' 335hp powerband formula from 2005

First of all I will say that this Documentary Video was well done by "Albon"; it was not biased and presented the evolution and the collaboration aspects that took place between Toyota and BMW!! Now, this is my perspective: my 1st (New) Car was a '99 Toyota Corolla Sport-touring (No A/C...dooo)..:-(, then I traded up in 2002 to a 2nd (New) Car, Toyota Camry (Two young Kids & Wife who wants A/C), led to the Camry...plus Size for two kids Car Seats..:-) Fast forward to 2006, Camry due for Lease-End, but No New Camry, so I went to GM (Pontiac G6 V6)...Don't ask...I'll never do that again!! POS!!! Summer 2006=Divorce..:-(, add in two Crashes with Pontiac in 2007 & '08...got rid of Car. Now here is where things get interesting...I always wanted a BMW 3-Series or 5-Series; so I found a 2000 BMW 540i"A" Sport Pkg E39 near-by, so I took the "Leap of Faith"...Bad decision, Car had lots of KM's 253,000 and lotttsss of issues; Bought Car for $5,000.00 CDN and have spent close to another $5,000 on parts, labor, taxes, duties...I know long story..ehh!! I have always admired "Japanese" Cars & Motorcycles; I've Owned 6 Bikes: '80 Yamaha GT80, '80 Yamaha Enduro 100, '85 (New) Yamaha Seca 400s, '91 ('87 Yamaha FZR1000RR), 2005 (New) Suzuki GSXR1000R, '14 (Used) 2002 Honda CBR1100xx Super Blackbird!! Thoughts>>Pros: New 2020 Supra, very nice Car, Cons: Two much influence, design and manufacturing processes taken place outside of "Japan"...IMO, Toyota did not need to collaborate with BMW, they've been building High Performance Cars long enough, to make the NEW SUPRA, the BEST EVER!!!!

If Alfa had also co-designed I'd be getting worried. At that point they'd produce something that kicked ass until Ford, Jaguar and Peugeot eventually fought back and got the upper hand... (I'd say Renault but they're basically Nissan's / Mercedes these days so wouldn't work!)

This makes me sad. I don't like modern german cars. They are too uptight about everything. I am sure the new supra is going to be a better driver than the z4 but It isn't going to have the japanese feel and ease of maintenance. only available in auto is proof of that. Japan would not make a drivers car that is auto...
Pradyumna Dongare
The only thing that really looks unappealing to me is its interior. It doesn't look Toyota and driver oriented at all. Even Honda civic sedan has much much better driver oriented interior than this new Supra. It looks like a Bmw interior but a lower end version of Z4. If this is about co-development then you should also look at GT86 and what Toyota has achieved with its interior. A fully driver oriented Japanese Oni.
I loved my MKIV. Everything but the auto transmision. I didn't think it would affect my love of the car when I bought it, but after a while I came to realization that it ruined it. So much so, I felt compelled to buy a new car. Also, I just noticed the new Supra has a park-brake button, not lever? Why not just be done with it and make it FWD, no LSD, remove the tacho, put a prius engine in it, make it 4-door, remove any lumbar support, have a really high seating position, reduce the track, numb the power stearing and paint it beige. Sigh, it just goes to show Toyota aren't in touch with what enthusiasts want. Maybe the car isn't targeted at enthusiasts though, maybe it's targeted at yuppies who don't know any better. This should have been labelled the new Soarer.

As someone who has built and raced many inline-6 based race-cars (From L28 to RB26 to 1/2JZGTE engines AND N54 twin turbo based cars). I can tell you that BMW's involvement can only help Toyota's new Supra. They are one of the best inline-6 engine manufacturers in the world and EASILY better than Toyota at building performance engines, period. Toyota only makes cookie cutter engines that work, but all of their performance engines where made in partnership with outside, third party companies like Yamaha. This includes their most famous engines.You have to be a Toyota fanboy to think otherwise. Trust me, you don't know what you're talking about.

Why do they need to based off a z4 when they couldve offer their ft-1 and let bmw develope an engine for it if they really want bmw to co-develope the supra. Atleast eventhough it has an bmw engine it looks good not like this midget looking car
RIP Supra.
Ramon Delarosa
this video was all facts. but it was only facts that show that these cars most likely the same thing this Supra is basically the FRS BRZ and Z4 in design alone and the internal specs will probably match the Bmw with only minor tuning . I'm glad they tried to revive the supra but I don't like where it's headed. but all in all good video
bachtelturm Vor Tag
Even if I could afford one. I wouldnt buy it. If this would be a complete new car, its maybe something fancy. But this is not a supra. I am not a mk4 fanboy or anything like that. I just find its a disapointment to any supra fan. Of course its nice they even build one. But nearly all the spirit of the supra is gone. At least its am straight 6 engine. But wrong manufactor. Anyway good for the mk4 owners. Your supra is not gonna loose any value. 😅 For this price you can get a really nice Lexus instead. Probably the better choice 🙈

Great informative video. Loved the OG Supra even though it was before my time... what. A. Car. Not impressed that my Model S will blow the doors off this thing up to 100+ mph. Maybe it's time for Toyota to build the next new thing instead of rehashing vintage tags . The next new thing isn't going to be a reimagined Supra... there are going to be dozens of much more affordable cars embarrassing future Supra owners.

The early 90"s Supra was and is an amazing car. A car that is very sought after to this very day. For its time it was the poor man's sports car, that turned into the beast it is today. The new 2020 Supra had big shoes to fill. In my opinion, the new 2020 Supra did not fill those shoes, not at all. The 90's Twin turbo Supra with full package suspension and all Could beet the BMW Z4 in 90% of road test is only looses in luxury items. No manual WTF is that all about. 90% of men under the of 60 that purchases any car in the sports class look for a manual trans.
Its sucks cause its not toyota built its a bmw z4 trd probably wouldnt put their hands on it.

What's really telling, and quite pathetic really, is how Toyota had to return parts to BMW to redesign them as they were not up to Toyota specifications. Shame on you BMW, I expected better than overpriced junk.

Okay but where is the overengineered semi-indestructible cast iron block? That is 99% of the reason why the Supra is a tuners top choice and the reason why it is iconic in the first place. Mkay?

You forgot to mention the BMW interior. Yes, technically not badged Z4 but nobody is complaining about badges they are complaining that it is a Z4 with a Toyota “shell and badge” which after watching your video is still the case. Tuning don’t mean shit! Toyota buys a Z4 and tunes it...so you can call it Toyota now? No! The design of the Supra was significantly limited because sharing the frame with a Z4. Check out Carbuzz an artist designed what the Supra should look like. More based off of the MK4. It is real nice and everyone I showed it to agreed. You can’t blame the disappointment with this car! It ain’t a Supra! Stop trying to use words to cover up the bs and screw ups. Don’t matter if it “drives great!” It ain’t a Supra. Stop being in denial. Check out the inspection review under the car and under the hood where everything from underbody covers, small supporting parts all stamped with BMW and bmw serial numbers. So did Toyota or BMW pay or sponsor you to make this video? The only review in favor of all this ridiculousness so far.
