    say you have a set production capacity and a certain amount of orders for a product, and this product comes in both versions X and Y, but only X can be sold worldwide; well, it's likely the best to produce X first and then move to Y when production allows.

    2021 MY Supra as has been posted on here will get a new version of 6 cyl turbo (no specific details) and the SEs are supposed to have same HP as all other 2021 Supras.

    Has there been any mention of a manual?

    Or just the B58B30O1 upgrade?

    Given the current B58B30M1 is closer to 380hp in reality, do we expect the revised engine to be understated as well?

    No knowledge of any manual plans, but because it’s not been mentioned by those that know it means to me unlikely for 2021 MY.

    You pose the same question I am asking and haven’t gotten an answer. Why change engines if it nets you no true HP increase? So something is at play....but you all are far smarter to figure it out than me. Maybe BMW discontinuing the current version of B58? Maybe new version will produce more than 382 published HP? Maybe it’s for cost, emissions, mpg reasons or a little of each? Maybe BMW preferred for ease of supply or production reasons to move to this B58 version? I have no clue and have not been told but certain a reason exists because they could have left the current engine in Supra and just showed more published HP for 2021 release since it seems to be making way more than they have stated?
