    Yup, RS3 and TTRS have been done. It wonít drive the forum forward, plus Audi forums are lame.

    The Supra will cross pollinate the BMW and Toyota forums. Much more upside.

    Yup! A much more interesting car to most than the ones listed above IMO.

    The Supra makes a lot of sense but we still need details and to see what the sales figures will be.

    I really like the TTRS platform. We're about done with S4 initial development and then I'll start spending some more time with the RS3. George @ BMS picked one up to play with. I'm trying to talk my wife in to driving a TTRS so I have an excuse to go buy one just for fun, lol. Tiny car capable of 9s with minor mods, huge win for Audi.

    Finding it hard to like the Supra with a BMW non-m engine and an auto. It doesn't feel right.

    The Supra going to be the car of 2019. Get in early, be one first to do a turbo upgrade. It will get attention, posting dynos, 1/4, 1/2 times. Whatís not to like, a 3300lbs car with Cayman like handling and motor ecu that has been cracked already. Didnít BigBoost crack 600whp recently with B58? At 3300lbs and 600whp, thatís 570s power to weight.

    Exactly, all of these reasons. Plus the ridiculous following the Supra has and everyone knows about them who are in to cars. You've done two german cars with the m3 and Porsche, now Japanese, maybe next an american car. Depending on your goals and what you are doing you may want to keep the m3.

    The TTRS is already in the 9s. You are not going to be the 1st in the 8s so why bother?

    Yeah Supra is the most logical choice. You already know the people to deal with to mod and that's a big advantage over the Toyota guys. BMW engine with auto? Who gives $#@! a really if it's going to get all the hype. Get on it. It may be a good car after all. The Audis are cool and impressive but let's be real you can't do much with it above what's already being done and published in other forums. The 718 aftermarket is limited as well. The M2 too is not that much of a hot market because whatever is going to happen with that car is already happened with the M3 so scratch that too.

    The man choice would be a Viper though Click here to enlarge

    I change my vote. You should get a C7 ZR1 and get someone to figure out how to crack the ECU.

    Or if you don't want to go for that get a Mclaren 720S or if on a budget, an MP4 12c

    Supra would be wise from business perspective but only if you move fast...much faster than 911...the market could get saturated fairly quickly.

    I am not sure on RS5 volumes, but the 2.9TT engine is in multiple cars in multiple markets...and is getting very little support. You could pioneer, dominate the market, be the go to tuning company for the 2.9TT.

    If the R8 was confirmed with the motor I'd go this route.

    I doubt the NSA would help me out. No chance the ZR1 gets done without inside help.

    The Mclaren is the best car but not the biggest modding market. Volume is key. The Mclaren comes later.

    Domestics haven't really been discussed as our focus here is mostly German/European but the new GT500 may be interesting.

    That’s not the point. The point of this car is to get attention to sticky’s forum. Everyone and their mother will be talking about the Supra when it debuts early next year. Honestly no gives a sh*t about RS3 running 9’s like a robot, been done. The point of this car is getting more exposure.

    Yup. Itís either new Supra or mid-engine C8. Easily the two cars that will be in the spotlight.

    Problem is the C8 will be double the price if not more. The Supra has the engine overlap going for it too.
