Oooh, twenty minutes

:coffee:

EDIT: If he confirmed 3000 lbs or such, what the hell kind of trim is going on here? Or are they just playing with a SZ-R and still testing the RZ version if weight is to play a part.

Just a friendly note: please don't message Moto-San or harass him in any way. He enjoys his privacy and he is also a friend of mine, so if he asks me to remove any link to his page(s), I will. It wasn't posted with bad intentions, of course, so I'll leave it, but just keep what I said in mind please!
Yes of course. I didn't even think that people would do that - I would have just pasted images.

The interior is fully covered with felt tarps as per the norm thus far, aside from the HUD.

also fyi, Moto more or less confirmed no active wing and 1400kg.
@A70TTR , do you think maybe that the active wing could be an option on the higher trim? This would kind of fit in with the idea that the top trim is the heavier supra. Or is this no active wing for all trims?

unfortunately, you'd be surprised...

if it happens, it would be the top spec that comes with it, but as it has never been seen in testing and considering the decklid design in general, I'd say it's as unlikely as it has always been.

Hmmm, I'll have to listen closer. I did think I heard that odd harmonic howl of a V6.

Im starting to think that with this Iron block (if true, which its sounding more and more true) that if toyota brings this thing out way underrated and it really is just a tune or downpipe away from some big potential, that wouldn't be the worst thing.

Keep insurance rates a little lower with a lower output, prices lower than say a 450 HP supra would be out of the box. But have the option to easily increase the power.

Sounds like something i am on board with.

Yes, I'll go back and try to censor my posts somewhat. I'd hate the guy to be inundated with messages. Thanks for the foresight (and guff)

I'm tired, should be asleep but it's fun playing sleuth.

How easy will it be to bring the weight further down to 1200 kg without completely stripping the interior bare to the metal?

I just want to mention, and this is purely an observation, the 2019 Cayman GTS -a 365hp MR Sports Car- has a 235/265 tire setup. This A90 has a 255/275 tire setup. Same class tire.
I saw that....is it 255 all around? I only saw the 255’s up front and 275 rear?

Glad you mentioned that.

2018 GTS = 3,032 lb @ 365HP.

I'm hoping Supra has 400+

340HP will not cut it, I don't care how awesome it handles, personally for 50-55K needs more power.
