It’s mid-engine, RWD, and seats 2.

Yes, front-mid counts. Toyota never said anything about the engine being behind the seats.

No previous Supra had all 3 of those characteristics. Supras were GT-ish while MR2s were supercar-ish. The New Supra is more of an MR2 than an Old Supra.

The New Supra is a handling/balance sports car, while the Old Supra was a muscle car/ponycar. Sure the new one still has Supra proportions, but has more of an MR2 ethos and mission.

Too heavy? Seats 4? Lots of horsepower? Yes, yes, and kinda yes. A turbo version, iF it happens, would be the true successor to the MKIV Supra.

That’s my Internet Opinion about Cars I Have Not Yet Driven, and I am prepared to defend this lukewarm take in the comments section with great enthusiasm!
