Yep. After being injured in a motorcycle wreck at the track, I take track driving and street driving very seriously when it comes to safety.
Best not to go the DSC off thread then.

I'm not saying I won't drive quickly on curvy, deserted back road, but I'm driving 5/10ths.......not "attempting" to drive at 9/10ths or more of my skill level.

Guess you never owned an E82? BMW excels at making strong buffets. You could always just buy the Z4.

Never owned an E82 sadly, didn't know that they have buffeting issues. Point being still that, while the Supra is a great car (the fact of it being a Z4 doesn't bother me as much as it does others), the buffeting makes it a deal-breaker as someone who likes to drive with the windows down.

I wonder what if you just tilt the sunroof, usually it's pretty good (don't know about Supra specifically, but at least with my 540, tilting sunroof is pretty good, open sunroof will get loud pretty quickly though).

I never really roll the window down, so can't comment much, wonder if open both passenger and driver side would be better or worse than just open driver side

I don't think the Supra has a sunroof, but not sure. If you don't put the windows down, it won't be a problem, but if you're like me, putting the windows down for close to half a year, its a dealbreaker

Do you currently have a coupe without rear windows that open? I've had a number of them and they all have pretty serious buffeting. Even convertibles tend to be bad with the windows down and roof up. One reason some have a back window that also opens.

Currently have an M2, don't have any buffeting issues with the windows down, pretty much normal amount.

Sunroof vented or no difference? Possibly related, are you tall? I tend to be right next to the b-pillar which I think accentuates the issue. I'm 6'2" and like my arms pretty extended.

No sunroof on the M2, 5'11, sit pretty far back, haven't had any significant buffeting issues.

I think the Toyota just suffers worse because of the window design and its more angled, maybe something to do with aerodynamics. All i know is that when I drove the Supra recently, I had heard of the buffeting issue, and tested it out myself and found that it has greater than average buffeting at lower speeds from 40mph+.

Also I've seen a couple of vid where they drag race the Supra vs. a Mustang GT and they are basically neck and neck, and I know for a fact that the Mustang is no where near 12.0 1/4.
18+ PP1 a10 GT has done 11.8 - 12 for several reviewers.
