Never. The new supra is ugly as **** and will never reach the elegant timeless design of an S2000. The performance doesnt interest me because its ugly and its an AT. Personally i think its one of the ugliest designs ever released not only by toyota but by any manufacturer. There is not a single angle that attracts me. S2k is timeless and special in every way...something that will never be built again..

I would consider the FT1 concept, which is what I was hoping the Supra would look like.

No - the chassis are very different. Same size - but very different.

How many people actually own a S2000 for things like power, comfort and fuel economy? What is clear to me is that anyone who would prefer the Supra over the S2000 does not value the same things in a car that I do. Both the Supra and the S2000 offer a driving experience that can't be matched by the other car. It all comes down to personal preferences. I can understand if someone values the experience offered by the Supra over that of the S2000. But I can also certainly understand anyone who prefers the experience offered by the S2000 over that of the Supra.

I'll readily admit that I am amazed at how many people prefer automatic transmissions over manual transmissions in their cars. That might have to do with my age and it might also have to do with my being a motorcyclist where automatics are few and far between. Sheer performance is one thing and I'm not knocking it, but for many people including myself the way you interact with a vehicle and the way a vehicle responds to that interaction is more important than outright performance. Perhaps this is also due to my being a motorcyclist, but for me the S2000 experience is definitely at it's best with the top down. In my case it's not about smiles per dollar, it just about the number of smiles period.
Well said.. it reminds me to appreciate my S2k more.. esp for its' pure and true analog driving experience.

Yeah... the S2k and 2020 Supra are 110% different than each other in every way possible - Old-School Analog vs. New-School Digital.
