re: Thoughts on the 2018 Toyota Supra? - s14suspense
[quote]Agreed, looks like an Alfa Romeo. [/quote] Alfas look great. This concept and every concept related to the Supra so far has been butt ugly. Still seems very awkward looking in camo but it could just be good camp. I have a feeling that toyota will screw it up though. It'll be way t...

[quote]It is doubtful that anyone will cross shop a Camaro and this Supra. Two entirely different cars with entirely different customer bases. Same with the Mustang and Challenger. [/quote] If they're supposed to be so different why build the Supra at all when you already have the RC? [img]h...

re: Thoughts on the 2018 Toyota Supra? - s14suspense
[quote]The new Supra will likely never have the status of the old Supras but keep in mind the Supra was a 40K car in 1995, Toyota has the option of making it a volume car or go the Godzilla route and make it a 100K halo, they seem to have every intention of pitting it against the US muscle cars shor...

[quote]The nissan 300zx is one of may all-time favorite cars. Would love to see this version slightly tweaked but overall the body style back then was kick ass. [/quote] They continued updating it slightly in Japan after it stopped being for sale here in 1996. [img]http://history.nissan.co.jp...

re: Thoughts on the 2018 Toyota Supra? - s14suspense
I can't imagine Toyota going with a higher performance engine than the standard 6 cylinder from BMW. They'll add electrical power to boost it or just keep it the way it is just like they've done with the 86. ...

re: Thoughts on the 2018 Toyota Supra? - s14suspense
[quote]As for using the B54 in the new Supra while 340ish hp doesn't seem high it is important to note the torque is in the 370 lb/ft range and the engines have a lot of real estate under the entire power curve. Plus I imagine that Toyota wants to see the Supra as a decent volume car and that wouldn...

[quote]I get it, but after HPFP failure, turbo rebuilds....Sure it's not the long block but still requires the car to be at the dealer for repair under warranty. [/quote] I hope that was an N54(new to direct injection thus the HPFP issues and overly complicated twin turbo setup) problem and th...

re: Thoughts on the 2018 Toyota Supra? - s14suspense
I understand that they worked together on the chassis, but BMW should have let them lie in the bed they made with abysmal V6s recently and scoffing at turbo 4s until they finally came out with their pathetic attempt at one. "Sure, lets work on an awesome chassis but we're going to reap the rewa...

[quote] MKIV's claim to fame was it's ability to handle 800hp+ on stock long block, very mod friendly and highly dependable. [/quote] They're not putting a pig heavy iron block and twin turbos in anything anytime soon. So... Modern M motors are still extremely tunable. ...

[quote]The Z4 will not be an M car so this means more than likely the Supra will get the highest output spec. The new X3/X4 share similar engine platforms (B58) but will have an M series... Logic tells me to pay attention to that engine which is est 460hp...[/quote] I seriously doubt BMW woul...

re: Question about "German" made vehicles (Audi, BMW, Porsche, Volkswagen, etc.) - s14suspense
It really is something they should just turn off for Europe and leave it on when car is sold here. It's such a nice feature. Remote start from inside house, stick keys in pocket, load up for work, walk out grab door handle and jump in and hit start. Keys stay in pocket....
