Toyota supra vs. Porsche 718 cayman vs. Bmw m2 competition

M/T just put out similar numbers to C/D on the 0-60 and 1/4 mile I believe 3.9 and 12.4.



Yes so it seems there's no way that's a 335HP/365TQ at crank setup with the times posted.



Agreed...

The MKV weighs 700lbs less than the Z4 the 45hp difference isn't a an issue imo. Plus it's $15K cheaper.

0-60 3.8 and 12.3 @113 mph is impressive for a 335 crank HP car that weighs 3372 lbs. Sounds like it's very underrated.
