    American MkV Supra buyers should soon have a four-banger option

    Actually in most countries here in europe the supra is sold with the 3 liter engine only, i think only germany and austria have the option with the 2 liter at the moment at least.

    We all knew this was happening. Toyota has to sell x amounts to recoup cost. With the car not taking off like they hoped, it was easier to sell a cheaper option to corporate than a more expensive release.

    The upside is that the more they sell, the more they have to actually commit to real support - and that will only help us... although the price of seeing many more on the road is a bit sad IMO.

    The real pitchfork-mob-creating moment comes in 2 years when they announce that they're "IS250-ing" all of us and making a 6-sp manual option - only available on the 2L I4 model. :D I'm calling it now, Toyota are masters at trolling enthusiasts that way.

    "Oh you want the 3.5L with AWD? Nah. You want a 3.5L manual? Nah. Have our grossly under-powered 2.5L... in either AWD or manual. Enjoy! :rofl: At least they finally started offering a IS350 AWD model with the last revision... but only after they ditched the manual entirely.

    Been waiting for a suitable replacement for my 2015 FRS, I, for one, welcome the 4 cylinder option and will be purchasing it day one.

    remember though the 2 liter supra is about 20k more than a new 86

    Yeah, I've actually been saving for the 6 cylinder since the announcement a few years ago, but with this news it's going to save me money in the long run and lower insurance cost. Either supra is an upgrade to me !

    nice!! both variants are pretty quick imo, from what i read i think the 2 liter is about as fast as the mk4 turbo .

    And not likely too much faster (at least in stock form that is)... but that interior is a massive step up! That was a sticking point on the BRZ for me... nothing but plastic as far as the eye can see. Really fun car to drive, but I just remember thinking "Suddenly the cheap interior in my 350Z doesn't seem all that bad..." :eek: Can't say it's perfect by any means, but I even consider it a step up from my RC-F... then again, BMW tech and materials will do that. I do miss my Alcantara arm rests a little though...

    Not initially I'm sure... maybe in a refresh, but Toyota seems to equate a manual transmission with "budget friendly" which the Supra doesn't really qualify for. Yaris, Corolla, Tacoma, 86 sure... but try to find one in anything over $35K and it's crickets.

    This statement pretty much sums it up I think....
    Although, as I've said elsewhere... if they do it, I'm betting it's exclusive to the 2.0L version... just to rub salt in the wound. :mad:

    It’d be so lame if this is true. I really like the exclusivity of it... If they’re gonna come out with a cheaper option at least make it look different
