    As much as I would love for this to be the case, TG magazine is just guessing.

    Which means, and Tada confirms this, the Supra won’t use the Lexus V8. A BMW six then? “Few car companies have straight-six engines,” he replies. “Toyota did but it doesn’t any longer.” Toyota’s European R&D head Gerald Killmans later confirms that it’s a recalibrated version of the BMW engine. We suspect the M3’s twin-turbo. That means 450bhp ballpark.

    Again that would be great news but that's just their suspicion. If this car ends up being a discounted lightweight BMW M4, that would be fantastic. Sort of like a Z3 M coupe, Z4M, with more toyota flair. If it came with a good transmission I think I'd have to put my money down immediately.

    And yeah, wow, January 2019 NAIAS??? I completely missed that bit. Jesus. Again, I'm hoping this is just Top Gear's guess and not a fact.

    A 50:50 weight distribution and a lower center of gravity than the Toyota 86 would be quite the achievement. Hopefully the speculated engine will use the bottom end of a BMW motor with a Toyota/Yamaha-tuned top end (and the dual-injection D4S to prevent carbon build-up).

    But this contradicts the start of production for the Z4. I always assume they would both roll off the production line together. :what:

    I'd be sad if this was the second time you went to a show and no cigar :(

    January 2019 --- Ugh...hope that's not accurate.

    I too am in disbelief on how it could attain a 50:50 weight distribution and lower center of gravity (that a GT86). Especially without the trans-axle and a non-boxer engine. My BRZ (and FRS before it) are about 52:48 F/R on the corner balance machine. The engineers are much smarter than me though, so I'm sure they have their ways.

    At any rate, if the Supra does turn out to be the "elder brother" of the GT86, then I may be saying goodbye to my BRZ when this comes out! To me, this means it will still be light weight, agile and great handling, while more powerful (the biggest downside of the GT86). Honestly, if the weight and handling is still similar to the BRZ/86, I would be happy with the ~345/300 power guesses that have been thrown around already.

    Yeah, would definitely be sad hahaha. However, there is a strong chance that this GR Supra concept will be at NY, so hopefully I'll get that much.
