I'm gonna chime in here finally now that I have driven one...
Drove a 2020 Supra on track Saturday and an M2 Comp also back-to-back. Supra has softer suspension, terrible visibility, was tight quarters for me (I'm a tiny 5'4" person) having to sit pretty far forward to reach the pedals, and had terrible buffeting at 80+ mph with the windows down... I Much preferred the M2C. Interiors are nearly identical but the Toyota had cheaper feeling steering wheel leather.
With proper coilovers the Supra would probably be better, but stock for stock I would take the M2.

That's what most of the reviews say. The Supra out of the box is balanced more for street/track. It has softer suspension and is more comfortable for daily driving than the M2c. Stock for stock there is an 7k difference in new pricing assuming comparable features. Used pricing with similar mileage is about a 5-6k difference.

If we move away from stock vs stock and evaluate on pricing then it works out like this. Drop springs and an adjustable front sway bar can be bought and installed for $1k or less and drastically closes the gap in handling between the two cars. This also minimally effects street comfort. The wind buffeting issue has aftermarket solutions that greatly reduce the effect for under $50. So new price difference with greatly reduced buffeting and very comparable handling is 4-5k used and about 6k new.

So there has been a number of 2021 owners reporting oil burning issues.

Ouch. That's sucks. Having two cars in the past dealing with oil consumption it's the most nerve racking experience. I went through this with Subaru and Audi. It's one of the reasons I lease most of my cars now. I just want to drive it and unload it in three years for a new one. I remember people claiming that that's just how new cars are now.

Bullshit. Two F80's with heavy track use and not a single oil consumption problem. WTF is going on here?

Interesting! I know that the B58 in my 18 340i never burned any oil so this seems odd.

So my cousin needed help clearing a fault on his Supra today (airbag warning from when he took out his seats during some modding), and it turns out BMW ISTA will connect, read, and operate the car, so you don't absolutely require the Toyota version of ISTA that BMW made to work with the new A90/J29.
