    Very cool.
    Wonder which engine they will use. A development of current RI4AG or a variation of the new TRD-BIZ001. It won’t be any BMW engine that’s for sure.

    Glad to see the new Supra in the Super GT championship after s many years!
    Regulations for the GT500 category in Super GT is 4-cylinder turbo 2.0l, while the GT300 any engine from the manufacturer. with output limitations and RWD only in both categories
    The GT500 NISSAN GT-R has the NR20A 4-cylinder turbo, while the GT300 has the standard VR38DETT.

    It's just a race car. Nothing that effects the street car.

    I could care less about the introductory cars....I’ve said this numerous times. I want what will be out “later.” I was told that the race car would hint at something special....so, we’ll see.

    A70 mentioned to keep an eye on the GRMN model (not concept)

    GRMN MarkX was unveiled with a manual transmission - something that has never been offered in a Mark X before.

    99% sure the GRMN A90 will be limited numbers (serialised, if you will) and a 6MT.

    I'm betting it won't be available outside Japan either.

    I hope we in the U.S. are not deprived of the GRMN. I want that car.

    Nope. We got the trd. But that was mostly just an appearance package

    Would be cool if it would be serialised but world wide so we all have the option to get it no matter if its US, Europe, Asia

    The TRD (TechnoCraft) MKIV Supra was serialized but was not offered in the US. They heard the enthusiasts in the US loud and clear.

    I think Toyota has learned their lesson on exclusive (Japan only) models :D:rolleyes:.
