Get this: the Toyota Supra is back, and it'll be joined by a new BMW Z5.

I keep re-reading our article on it and looking for bad news, because it all seems too good to be true. But, no, every time I scan through the details, all I’m left with is a happy, warm glow inside.

There’s just so much to like here. BMW’s Z car gets lighter than it currently is because it has a folding canvas hood, rather than one of those godforsaken metal jobs that just adds weight, complexity and cost and moves the centre of gravity skywards and rearwards, just where you don’t want it to be.

And the Toyota Supra is back, engineered by the people who created the GT86, one of the greatest driver’s cars of the past decade.
