      Dedicates millions of dollars over decades to draw a younger crowd - even going so far as to create an entirely new (albeit short-lived) sub-brand - only to negate so much of that effort with this single act.

      Smooth move, T.

      So what you're saying is that Toyota realizes they're boring, beige and the best cars they had where the old ones. Also what I heard you say is that the new Supra super ugly and I would agree with you.

      "Playing something that realistic makes the need for cars disappear." Yeah, because the Supra you own on Forza Horizon 3 will take you to work, or anywhere for that matter on real life.

      It has to be very upsetting for Toyota to know their most popular car is the 2jz powered supra and their new supra wont compete.

      toyota is still in gran turismo sport even though the newer supra is a disappointment, On another note i love taking the minivans, suv's and anything that's not a sporty car and making it do things it should not that's what makes video games fun, to me i used to hate forza but the tunability of the cars changed my my mind i mean i have a 1974 civic that can hit 230 in under 20 seconds and makes 1000hp its stuff like that i enjoy to play and sadley its the only thing that gt sport forgot about
