    I tried to pull up the shadows on some of these photos to get a little more in view, but there's not really enough resolution/color information to play with. I'll post these anyways though, lmk if you happen to catch anything.

    On closer inspection of that close up picture of the throttle body I see part codes a2c11226200 and 8667415, but cant find any existing bmw parts with either number. So must be a brand new part.

    Also did you notice the “Toyota Supra” Logos stamped on top of the wings?

    Engineers reply:

    "Believe the information we have given you versus what you see online. When the car is released it will explain your question."

    So it sounds like they aren't going to give anymore for now, but that the iron block engine is somewhere.

    He also said, "production prototype sure, but we didn't say anything about motor."

    So he's implying that this isn't the final production motor? Or am I just imagining what I hope is true

    Sick find Ryley. There seems to be a decent amount of space around the engine - always good I think for maintenance or upgrades. Definitely looks like the B58. I can see that the airbox and components to the left of the engine are different.

    So as I said earlier where it felt qeird that Tada wasn't pushing the car or red lining it sorta makes sense now if this ain't the true motor.

    So...

    B48u

    B58U

    AND

    New motor all worked by Toyota.

    I wonder if that top trim car is roaring in the headquarters of Toyota?

    Another hint, "everything is on a cycle, and that cycle is nowhere near complete."

    So it sounds like the debut of this other motor will come later.

    Beyond that, I have no idea..

    By this, you mean the top of the line motor or the general I6?

    Toyota has officially surpassed teasing levels that of a Vegas strip club. Congratulations Toyota, for achieving the most impossible limits of teasing.

    It's frustrating, and they do it more now because they know it annoys me.

    I can't exactly say much though as I do it too...

    It's been 6 years from sitting on this side of the fence, what's another 6 months. Plus it's nice to have something to look forward to when visiting this forum. It reminds me of FT86club.com before the FRS/BRZ were released.
