Except the canards, the delta wing, the 'supersonicness' and the trademark Russian aircraft ugliness, yeah, they're an identical match!

The Sonic Cruiser and Tu-144 have more in common, is
it a coincidence that Boeing leased a TU-144 that later
was sold on e-bay without engines?

I see very little resemblance. As a side note, the Tu-144 really looks like some sort of praying mantis. Kind of scary and sinister.

Ever notice the similarity between a watermelon and a water buffalo? It's remarkable.
