With all of the flak that Toyota is getting for using the B58 and BMW interior and to add insult to injury, the Supra won't even be built in Japan, I'm wondering if they should have just used the V6 from the LC500. I know it's not an in-line 6 but they're getting flak for using the bmw engine and they'll get flak for using a v6. At least if they used the V6, it would be their own engine plus the v6 puts out 416 hp and 442lb-ft of torque. Even if they detuned it a little, I'm sure people would forgive them. I mean this BMW engine with 335hp is supposedly getting 0-60 in 4.1 secs. If they used the V6 from the LS500 and even detuned to 380hp with still a bunch of torque, I think it would do better than 4.1 seconds. Plus, you would at least get the Toyota/Lexus reliability whereas that is up in the air right now with the B58 and I think people would quickly forgive it being a v6. Well maybe not quickly but in time. I mean look at the F150 and Raptor. Used to rely on big old V-8 now a V-6 turbo is in there and it puts out really strong hp and so people forgot about the v8. If you think in-line 6 Supra purists are tough to sway, I'd say the F-150 v-8 purists are the hardest to sway and they've accepted the v-6 turbo in their truck so I think if the numbers had come in right, the v-6 tt from the LS500 would have been a better option at this point. I thought when Toyota announced they were doing the Supra as a joint project with BMW, I thought they were developing an engine together. It seems they just bought the engine from BMW along with the transmission and interior. Then from there, they developed the car on their own.
