I got video of G29 Z4 and Supra test cars

Up close and personal with the next generation Z4/Supra on Mulholland highway. They sounded great.




Sorry for the sideways video. The drivers weren't too happy with me filming

I believe the front two are Z4's and the two cars in the back are Supras. Correct me if I'm wrong!

Interesting that they’re testing together. Probably a lot more in common with each other than has been suggested

I know some people that live in states where manufacturers test cars, make a decent amount of money on the side chasing these test mules and stuff. Pretty much car paparazzi
I remember reading about people doing this for a living when some guy chased and followed the hurcan before it was in prodcution a few years back

The alternative is that people aren't interested in these cars at all, which doesn't bode well for sales of the production versions - or the continued employment of said drivers. Interest at this point is a good thing - the drivers should be delighted!

@dtmpower98, thanks for sharing!

Did you happened to see any backseats in the Supra prototype? Or did it look like a 2 seater?
