  1. Ordering Process For New Supra

    Another (bad?) news; I was told both engines are BMW's...still not sure what types of 4 or 6. Hopefully dealership is getting bad information.
  2. Ordering Process For New Supra

    I'd guess for those prices, there may be more than one motor involved for each car.
  3. Ordering Process For New Supra

    Guys, although this ship has already sailed away for me, I just spoke with a friend of mine who works for Toyota dealership. He said Toyota just gave them an introductory speech about the new Supra replacement, telling them there will be two models, 4 cylinder turbo priced between $40-50K and a...
  4. Spied: Toyota benchmarking Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997) for new Supra?

    That's reaching! :) Different platform, different animal. Rear engine, rear wheel drive (no elect motor for front wheels), short wheel base. I think they just want to have a better understanding of what a true driver's performance "street car" feels like. Even the new $200K Porsches will not be...
  5. Toyota confirms Supra revival concept for 2016 reveal

    Gold chain and the works.... ;) The new Grand Sport. A Z06 without the silly overheating supercharger! Probably one of the (flame suit on) most capable NA cars, outside of open wheel cars!
  6. Toyota confirms Supra revival concept for 2016 reveal

    Well if there's any substance to all this, this time around, all I can say is they better hurry up, as I have already placed an order for the No. 1 best selling sports car, model year 2017 (hint: it comes with a porn star mustache as optional), not to mention the most track capable car for the...
  7. Crickets... give us some news Toyota!

    It took the most technologically advanced car, Porsche 918 which broke every production car records in existence four years to go from concept to production! We are on year three and still feeding of "rumors of a concept"...is this the next NSX? I'm moving on...
  8. Will FT-1 concept follow the FT-86 timeline?

    More unconfirmed but interesting recent jibirish: https://carsfeatured.com/2017-toyota-supra/ Ok get ready for this. Toyota and BMW are making a car together. Their main focus is quality. We can find on the web a little information about this powerful car. This collaboration between Toyota...
  9. Any Cayman GT4 fans?

    And now the GT4 Clubsport. With all the crazy money out there being thrown around on Porsches, Porsche is thinking of cashing in on some of this craziness! Called the dealer, no MSRP yet, although it has a link to Build&Price it: Rumor has it, it has a base price of $165K!!!??? Cayman GT4...
  10. Toyota S-FR concept

    Sorry, not exactly what I'd be caught driving with all that jazz, but wouldn't a grocery bag in the truck provide the same amount of downforce at any speeds that 109 ft-lb could muster up! Designs like this remind me that "I need to grow up and act my age....like a responsible 18 year old...!"...
  11. Toyota confirms Supra revival concept for 2016 reveal

    I can't imagine them using a plain old/basic Prius hybrid type engine when they are calling out for a sequential gearbox! He said, it'll be something people can't imagine (right there you can forget the Prius) or won't expect. I'm voting for Prototype/F1 type engine technology with sequential...
  12. Toyota confirms Supra revival concept for 2016 reveal

    Similar interview but with a very interesting last comment. Read the end part! http://www.drive.com.au/motor-news/toyota-new-supra-coming-soon-20151029-gklq3j.html The man responsible for developing the highly-anticipated successor to the Toyota Supra has promised it will shock and surprise...
  13. Toyota confirms Supra revival concept for 2016 reveal

    Kind of echos what I was told by the corporate staff at Seattle show: it won't be the FT1; it's a joint venture between Toyota and BMW; and it's at least three years away. I like the description that it'll be about driving and performance and not Hp.
  14. Consumer focus groups/surveys/feedbacks for new Supra?

    Haha...Ferraris and Lambos don't even count! Every time I see a guy driving a Ferrari or a Lambo around in public, the first thing that comes to mind is that he can't drive worth a damn. There's only one rich young guy at the track who's not afraid of pushing his Ferrari Italia and its because...
  15. Consumer focus groups/surveys/feedbacks for new Supra?

    Well that was interesting! I contacted the NJ Porsche dealer about the GT4 to see if the ad was real. They said that car was pre-ordered for a client and it was sold. They didn't know why it was still on the web site. I asked them if it was pre-sold, why was it there in the first place? Got a...
  16. Consumer focus groups/surveys/feedbacks for new Supra?

    Actually that's not bad, other than being in NJ. They are $85K base... One of the local dealers is willing to honor Kerbeck type discounts of about $5.5-$6K for a Z51. I wouldn't go crazy as all I'd want is the Z51 1LT with Mag Select Ride, possibly Z06 splitter (plus after market rear...
  17. Consumer focus groups/surveys/feedbacks for new Supra?

    I checked out cars.com. Prices are almost in the GT3 territory with another $15K. Or maybe a low mileage Mezger engine GT3. Dealer said they their manager has one and wants to sell it in six months. And it already has two people's deposits on it!!! Asked me if I want to be the third person in...
  18. Consumer focus groups/surveys/feedbacks for new Supra?

    I went to the Seattle show today to see if I could find a higher up insider to have a private chat. Well I ended up talking with a couple of girls from the corporate who were much more than just pretty faces! They were very well knowlegable about FT1 to my surprise and they went on to say that...
  19. Now Porsche E Car!

    Do you see a resemblance? http://www.porsche.com/microsite/mission-e/international.aspx#/conclusion
  20. New Supra and Z4 will share platforms

    ^yes! If small pieces, you replace em. If large pieces, dealerships will start having their inhouse certified CF shops! or possibly be shipped to centeraly located dealership with certified shops. Kind of why the new ford GT will only be delivered to those dealerships with ford certified CF...
