But that's not the point. Lighter is better.
The weight of the turbo model, please.
? They are all turbo models
The 6-pot turbo model.
I found another interview, but the Google translation is a little whacked.
So far, reports have only said turbo 4 and turbo 6 will be available. No NA variants, nor hybrid. Probably soon...who knows
"But Toyota might not have to borrow from others for long.
Tada, who is chief engineer at Gazoo Racing, said the division is currently developing several of its own sporty engines for production cars. Tada declined to give further details, such as whether the engines are all-new powerplants or simply retuned versions of existing ones.
But he suggested electrification might play into the plans."
So far, everything my source has told me has been true....everything! I have no reason to believe the remaining "things" won't be true either.
As for the development of its own engines, all I can say is pay close attention to the race car they will be unveiling at the auto show. I am told there will be "hints" of what's to come .
I will have a MKV Supra "eventually" .
I don't doubt you considering unless Toyota gave you a lot of hush money to lower your criticism of its upcoming car, SOMETHING must have caught your attention to make you 180.
All fingers are pointing to that release in Tokyo Auto salon. Exciting times are ahead.
Hehe....I have said too much already.
If I can give any reputable advice, it would be to WAIT....the introductory cars are not what "most of us" will want. That being said, the last thing I will hint at is that Toyota is VERY WELL AWARE of Supra fans reactions up to this point .
That's what I wanna hear
There were rumours of a 3 cylinder with about 250 hp also, if toyota is making their own sick engines , the future is brighter than we though maybe.
That "very well aware of reactions" comment by Performancesound - the lack of a MT has been the factor that has generated the most negative feedback (aside from the "it's not a Toyota" talk which Toyota can do nothing about) - if so a MT is almost certainly coming, just not immediately.
I think the manual transmission implementation was pretty clear when the GR race car had three pedals .
Interesting, we saw a glimpse of the BMW engine in the camo'd Supra at Goodwood....but never saw an engine in the GR race car .
In todays Automotive News they have an article about the Supra where Tada said "the GR division is currently developing several of its own sporty engines for production cars." Then declines to give further details. Also doesn't specifically say those engines would be for the Supra or other cars.
