Cars & Kopi (Coffee) Singapore October 2019 - A Superb ///Morning

After a short hiatus of about half a year, it seemed like a pretty good time to have another one of our auto-otaku gatherings. It’s been a rather interesting year for the local automotive enthusiasts with several events held throughout the year, a reason why I was initially hesitant to have another Cars & Kopi meet. Would anyone show up?

But, with a nice long weekend in sight that had rather good weather predicted, why not? Ladies and Gents, once again, thank you for gracing the meet. Without all of you, it would just be an empty carpark. Welcome to Cars & Kopi Autumn/Winter 2019.

For those who remembered our last meet back in April, we managed to get our friends from BMW Asia and Performance Munich Auto to showcase the latest BMW 8 Series. This round, however, there was something I’ve had been wanting to put together for the longest time. No prizes for guessing, I so very much wanted the BMW Z4 and Toyota Supra sisters next to each other. Thanks to our friends from Top Gear Singapore, I got my wish.

With the Toyota Supra yet to be officially launched in Singapore at the time of the meet (blame local homologation), the kind folks over at Borneo Motors, Singapore’s Toyota dealership, were kind enough to not just bring one Supra, but a pair of Supras ahead of their local launch. It was quite the sight for both enthusiasts and casual observers alike!

With the Z4 arriving shortly after, we had to put them together. Extra points for both wearing matching coloured outfits!

Next to the wild curves of the Supra, the Z4 definitely carries a more understated vibe and mature aesthetic.

I do hope the Supra does well. Not just because I’d like to buy a used one in the future, but because it might be just the car to save the dying Sports-car segment against the relentless SUV onslaught.

Even with a rather large number of parking lots, it didn’t take long for them to be filled up. Here’s the local SAAB contingent. The last of their kind.

An early GTO/3000GT. In my opinion, the best looking of the lot. The design of this Mitsubishi just got more and fussier as they progressed through the years and the later cars don’t seem to age as well as this. Seems to be getting more recognition now too.

The Alpina B3 Biturbo Touring?

Or the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio?

For me? Wagon all the way.

With these cars being rather rare here, it was quite amazing that another B3 Biturbo Touring was lurking around. Sat next to a sweet 911 GT3.

If I had to choose between the Touring of the GT3, I’m afraid I’ll have no choice but to defect to the dark side of the Porsche force.

Our perennial favourite, the Z4 M Coupe. The design of this Z4 dates back almost 18 years but I think it has withstood the test of time rather well. Bangle was right all along.

More German heavy metal yet again with this beautiful China Blue Gelandewagen. What’s that curious looking E30 at the back though?

Check out this square headlamp conversion. Haven’t seen an E30 with these lights since, the 90s?

Another Honda S, but this time, an S660. I’ve never seen one of these on the roads before. With the obscene amount of taxes tacked onto new cars here, it must take a real fan to buy one.
