The problem with the new Supra (aside from the fact that it doesn't have a Toyota engine- the 2JZ is what made MKIV so legendary) is that even with the Toyota bodywork, the BMW design language reads through.
From a side profile, it looks plausibly Supra-esque until just forward of the front wheels, where that nose angle is pure Z4, but from the top there's so much more Z4 character that comes through.
I'm sure it's a great car, but calling it a new Supra was... not the greatest marketing move, IMO.
This series has a "push button for more power" system, which I've never been a fan of, but unlike Formula E and Formula 1, there aren't any special zones where you can use them, or worse (I'm looking at you Formula E) zones that activate the feature in the car.
This one has a 100 second lockout after you use it.
So far it seems to be responsible for 3 burned out clutches and at least two shunts.
If you want to join me in learning about Super Formula (which as I understand it is a one-make formula car chassis with engines from the SuperGT series), Race 1 of the season is streaming live with English commentary here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-jIVHgc7es
