you mean revealed? common man/woman there is a difference.
Well in the U.K. you can put money down for one and I know all the specification of the car. I’ve had a livestream showcasing every aspect of the car (minus the heads up display). As far as I’m concerned that’s released. Money down on a product but there’s a wait time.
Uh no you don’t, what about all the specifics of the internals, the parts? What does the HUD do? Etc.
Well realoem already showed all of that so we know all the parts already.
I know technically that’s not “revealed” on the parts front but we know what they are already.
The HUD. Is explained here:
It’s the same as in the supra.
What don’t we know? And why don’t we know it already?
(Laptimes, probably because Toyota can’t replicate its track car)
The HUD does not look like that. For laptimes, I personally think Toyota may just be scrambling now to find ways to get a faster time. However, the track car was not a track car. It was a mule, so just a regular test car. I'm certain it had some advantage over the stock model but I doubt it would make more than 5-6 seconds of difference.
That's easy. Mercedes Is Always The Answer.
IF Toyota plans on taking a pre-production Supra to the Ring for an official lap time (especially for pre-launch marketing purposes), it wouldn't happen for the next couple of weeks/months as the weather at the ring is currently in the 30 and 40 degree Fahrenheit range.
I forgot about that, there are some videos of people sledding on the closed track.
7:40's possible. Take the filter off, remap the ecu, exhaust job. Ya bet my ass that'll go below 7:40. Who tf cares what time this thing makes stock when it is the ever dying breed of "tuner" car? Like, actually a car designed, meant and is sold to be tuned. I mean, this is the very soul and identity of JDM. This is what popularized jdm. Tuning. The fact that this is a car made by a manufacturer for the customer to build something of their own, not a Ferrari that just wants people to buy their car because it is Ferrari and it is perfect so fudge you may not do jack schmuck to it. Stock lap times my ass. Lap times man.. lap times.
Guff and I were talking earlier, and I really thibk that this car is being rated low. Possibly to make BMW feel better. We won't know for certain until we can get one on a dyno, though
It would be cool for them to go full nostalgia and give us all an easter egg, "yes, so we have rated this product at 335hp because of gentlemen's agreement between us and BMW" *Toyoda/Tetsuya proceed to smirk and wink* *buyers proceed to dyno at 335Whp* *cries*
There’s no evidence though. There are production models out there so where is the track time?
This is all pure speculation
That's why I said "I think". It could be similar to the gentleman's agreement that Toyota, Nissan, and Mitsubishi had back in the...80s? Cars were to be limited to 280hp. Almost every company had more iirc.
They are Moto sans words
