The new Supra will be the joint venture with BMW for the new Z4, yes? But I believe the Bimmer will be ragtop only.

That was what I had seen reported, but I have seen BMW will be only convertible and ONLY BMW will get the convertible. Small change in order but big time change in released cars. But it seemed like it would be a shared platform with engine changes between the manufacturers. Which seems to indicate the new Supra will be a small car if it is the new Z car as well.

BMW has revealed a concept version of its Z4 in the last Pebble Beach 10 days ago.

Good looking little car that would make a nice second-coming as the GT3 model, if BMW management ever decides to look past racing mechanical whales in top-flight GT series (although its a smaller "canvas" for art cars).

It's kind of like a Germanic F-Type.

Don't see Munich racing it. No roof (can you have open-top GT3s?) and they want to sell the M8.

Maybe they will offer it in a retractable hard top model as well.

The Z4 GT3 was homologated from the E89 Z4, which was by default an open-top but with the retracting/folding roof being metal.

Did that one end up having the 2.0l GT500-engine after all?

It's the V6 still - as I expected given the pictures of the test mule have enlarged skirts to fit the pair of troublesome catalytic convertors - their original placement had cooked the drivers feet for so long.

A 4 pot would likely only need the one exhaust.

Having been a little under the radar, Bentley have launched their new Continental GT3, beating Nissan to the glory of showing off the new machinery first.

http://www.dailysportscar.com/2017/1...ental-gt3.html

Pretty car

We can expect a new Nissan for 2018

A new Aston Martin GT3 for 2019

Potentially a new McLaren 720s GT3 in 18 or 19

And possibly a Supra?

New Nissan has already raced in VLN - very much another 'Evo' of the current car

so, all that mess for nothing?

anyway, really aggressive look for the new continental. Is still m-sport effort?

The focus on aero is clear, that basically was what the old continental was lacking.
