Just my opinion but the red car looks like a sports car and the blue car looks just weird and cartoonish from the front like it's mimicking Domo-kun (maybe that's by design?).

Exactly. They could have done so much better with the front.

Toyota even referred to is as Portimao Blue on their website
Well that's interesting. Toyota Canada shows Portimao, Toyota USA shows Stratosphere. Canada even names Sparkling Copper Grey. Guess that confirms the BMW colors for the 2023.

Every dealer is different, I guess.
Which one? Toyota of Suprise called me and asked for 20k over. I laughed.
86k for a A91, 20k over on a 66k car. I'd like to get one for my brother in law, so if you can, I'd appreciate your assistance.

Not local here, it's a dealer in Tacoma, WA.

I think more so, the NSX and GTR went up a tier as they are now no cheaper than "halo" GT3/4 Porsches.

The NSX was way more expensive than the rest (about 50%) so definately a tier above.
The GTR was of course always a RHD so not really a contemporary contender unless you live in Japan, the UK or Australia.
So:
Tier 1: NSX
Tier 2: Supra turbo/RX7 TT/300zx TT/GT3000/Skyline r34 (if applicable)

The z3m roadster was priced slightly under the tier 2 cars, but it came out about the time a lot of those cars got retired.

if you are categorizing car tier based on price, then yes, NSX is tier 1 while the rest is tier 2, etc. I am categorizing car based on performance, and NSX is the same tier as Supra, RX7, and GTR R34.

3000GT never really challenge these cars in term of performance, but somewhat i remember in late 90s, it's always mentioned due to being the #1 mitsubishi car, then it got compared with #1 of honda, nissan, mazda, and toyota.

Performance as in?

Engine power?
Actual track times set on a specific track by a test driver or a magazine? (nordschleife for example)
Actual race merits?
Do you take the weight of the cars into account?
The RX7 and NSX are both light. The rest is pretty heavy. (not considering the s2000 and lower tier cars here)

I had a 91 300zx Turbo. Stillen intake, Greddy exhaust, HKs boost controller Jim Wolfe chip. That thing was fast. It got stolen and torched in Camden. Lol. Loved that car. Use to whoop a lot of ass at the Philly Street races.

Wouldn't be surprised if BMW had a hand in that since it would essentially be a different styled M240i.

BMW *did* have a hand in that... because Z4s don't have rear seats.
