    Eh not really. A GT3 RS has that amazing 9k rpm engine. A Carrera S has a 3.8 NA flat 6. Even with a X-51 power kit, it's nothing like a GT3 engine. And I am not even talking about the 992's which all have 3.0 turbo engines...those are a far cry from the GT3 motor. The Supra, on the other hand, whether it be a base version or a GRMN, will have the same B58. Only difference would be the GRMN will have more power thanks to a different tune. Which I am sure you can get with an aftermarket tune on the base Supra which will match and most likely exceed the GRMN version. Same with suspension parts, brakes, wheels, tires.

    Definitely not a A90 that's for sure. Just listen to it. That's no B58. Looks like a new LFA? But I don't get why they would bring it back. They lost money on the car not once but twice.

    Hey, A70 thank you for making the whole reveal process for this car so much more interesting, I have greatly appreciated it. I, however, have one more question, is the higher output Supra (i.e., the 385hp, track edition that has been rumored) the same as the car you referred to as being the GRMN car (i.e., the car that you mentioned has more power and some interesting tweaking to the transmission). Thanks!

    It appears to be unrelated from my understanding.
