Following the unveil of Toyota‘s 2020 Supra, car fanatics pointed out how heavily the car is based on the BMW Z4. Aside from sharing the same BMW B58 3.0-liter straight-six engine, the long-awaited car also comes with a similar interior and infotainment system. According to reports, Toyota looked to BMW for help as a non-BMW Supra would’ve pushed the launch of the model even later. The only major difference between the two cars is that the Supra has a hard top, while the Z4 uses a ragtop making it 88 pounds heavier.
carwow recently put the two cars head to head in a drag race to find out just how similar the two cars are. Surprisingly, despite sharing the same engine the Supra pulled out ahead and left the Z4 in the dust twice by utilizing the BMW engine better. Despite also proving its superior performance in a rolling race, the Z4 did shine brighter than the Supra in a brake test.
