    If this logic applies to the USA too, then a bare 2.0 would start around $36k. That would be an excellent price.

    The best Supra is a 2 litre, 4 cylinder one?



    Not the B48, but someone else may be interested...

    For strictly circuit work, I think the 2.0's weight balance is going to be better. I personally would like one but not for these prices so close to 3.0. I think for a lot of people, having the halo RZ/3.0 trim is worth the price difference rather than getting the 2.0 and wondering if you're missing out. Plus I hear the 86 is getting a 2.4 in it's next life.

    I'm still working on my 2.0 review but the quick and dirty is basically this: the trans is geared the same as the 3.0, which makes the car less exciting than it could be. Also, no LSD is an awful omission, as this car is incredibly fun to slide and very predictable at the limit. And there is a lot of rev hang. Also, it needs a manual.

    I'd love to get one to potentially swap a manual into, but I think, above all, it desperately needs an LSD and a far more aggressive final drive. This motor will make plenty of power with a tune, I'm sure. And it already feels very torquey. DSport's numbers seem off from my butt dyno but I'm not gonna claim that my cheeks are more accurate than a dyno, so that remains to be seen.

    You sure about the no LSD? I've seen other reviews saying it had a mechanical LSD rather than an E-diff.

    Yeah I'm certain it's open, couldn't find anywhere in the press materials that it had an LSD and it felt open as can be. Spent a bit of time in the wet and you had to flick it to get it to rotate, it absolutely would just spin one tire when you tried to power over. BMW offers an MPerformance Clutch Type LSD in their Mx40i cars but this wasn't it.

    I wonder if it'll be an optional extra. A performance package. Maybe even include the 3.0 brakes.

    I’m honestly more upset about the 4 cylinder news than the added power to the 3.0.....

    It’s like having a 392 or hellcat and then pulling up to a v6 charger that looks the same minus the hood. I really hate when manufacturers make a cheap version of premium cars, it kills the value of the car for all of us and it makes the car less desirable. This is a supra, it’s meant to be exclusive in the same way the GTR is. I don’t see a 4 cylinder GTR, I see a car that was kept as a premium model and held its value quite well.
