Yes they sure do and quite a few younger guys do here as well and its part of subarus marketing strategy.

Because those rear vents do absolutely nothing and they know it.

The first person to offer a normal front bumper will make a lot of money.

Yeah, it's still 18.3" longer than a Miata and 1,050 pounds heavier. Apparently the internet is full of fools.

These small sport cars are a means of escape. During the 80's and 90's, we didn't have internet so these cars were popular back then. Now you got internet, video games, augmented reality, and so on so the need for these cars are no longer something you have to have. To be honest, personally, I don't really care for these cars as much as before.

The future whether you like it or not is in electric, autonomous driving.

Maybe for my kid, not for me though. I'll drive a manual, ICE car until this whole operation shuts down.

Well the young generations are probably more into iPhones, tweeter, fb ... I don't think they think about cars the way people do in the 80's or 90's. For them cars are basically a mean to get from one place to another, and even better if they don't have to do the driving.

To me fully autonomous is still a long way from now. I don't think it's the technology. Maybe inherently it's not possible since software can't really 100% emulate the way our brains think when we drive.

In general this may be true, but my 11 yr old would beg to differ as well a few of his friends. He wants nothing more than to drive a manual shit box for his first car (bc I won't let him get a RWD Nissan anything that he wants).

Not really. A growing number of young people like stuff from the 80s and 90s. All you need to do is go to a song from the 90s and see the comments. Kids are all saying how they wish they grew up back then, 80s synth music, and those colors they used.

The human heart is still the human heart. The same things drive them that drove you when you were in your teens - the need to be free and wild.

The rear end is just too overly styled. The original NSX was designed by an Italian designer. Maybe Toyota should have done the same.

I agree. That said many cars are. Even the latest BMWs are that way too these days.

I own many mkiv Supras now and would never really think of adding this new one to the stable.

as ive watched the supra world for so many years, now the cars prices explode. and the claims of dealers having holy grails of the mkiv supra world have come out here and there. seems funny to me. as I've watched this world so closely for years. the holy grail sits on top of a lift beside a loft full of memorabilia from Toyota and the supra line up. the holy grail of all Toyota Supras is this 1 car. and why? well these are the facts of this car.

titled: GETRAG GEAR CORPS INC.
93.5 hardtop 1 of 360 hardtops in the USA
lowest milage hardtop known to exist 8140 miles current
twin turbo
6 speed
100% stock car

this is the car of the owner of the company that made the transmissions for any and all 6 speed turbo Supras. he made the trans that was put into each and every car and then sold thru Toyota. this was his personal car. from t=his personal collection. the car is documented and real as can be. she sits comfortable in her home.
