  1. EXCLUSIVE PROOF: The Mid-Engined Chevrolet C8 Corvette Is Happening!

    Other Cars
    Wow great job GM. This car gives me the same sort of enthusism back in the late 80s and early 90s when the 300zx, RX7, and Supra were released. Its got the looks, the performance, and now the technology of the high priced exotics..... Dealer markups be damned I cant wait to drive one of these.
  2. Dyno Results: The 2020 Toyota Supra Makes More Power Than Toyota Claims

    2020+ Toyota Supra General Discussions
    Like the reviews have said, Toyota could have done worse. This car is an ecu tune away from 425whp. No one else is making an aluminum block inline 6 that is tunable as BMWs are. Waiting to see what the beefy tranny options there will be for this car.

    Interesting that Toyota does not have the LC down for this supra... the 3.8 time by CD was done using good old fashion foot on brake and a little gas to load the torque converter.. Here is 0-60mph in 4.0 and 12.5s 1/4 mile @ 113mph despite using the less than optimal launch control.

    I wouldn't worry too much about this supra being a "ringer". The B58 engines are well known to dyno over 325whp stock (BMW 340i) despite being rated at ~320hp at the crank.
  6. Why Do People Hate The New MKV A90 Toyota Supra So Much?

    2020+ A90 Toyota Supra News
    This car has grown on me, I've moved on from the disappointment it is not proportioned like the FT-1. But that would have been a heavy car unless toyota went the LFA route $$$. I hope this car is a sales success so that there will be a ~500hp version with a DCT transmission, with modern tire...
  7. 2019 Toyota Supra confirmed with Gazoo concept

    Car looks good for what it is. Can't wait to see the top end version with the M3/M4 engine with 450-500hp and (presumably) a wide body with it. Looks like toyota / bmw needs to step up the game on the stock brakes for this car, but that seems true with other cars too like the R35 GTR.

    From the driver's seat who cares, but the NA flat 6's just don't sound great to my ears... worse than most V6's. Looking forward to Toyota building a more hardcore track version of this GR Supra.

    ^ sounds like that was what was expected of the new Supra. A 150k car that will outpower and out lap the GTR, NSX, Z06 as well as the exotics.

    2020+ Toyota Supra General Discussions
    Its funny reading all the weak bmw engine comments. Its a solid deck aluminum block that gets good gas mileage. ~330 rwhp what you get bone stock. for $1000 ecu time that bumps up the boost to ~425whp. around 6k for turbo kit fuel and ecu time and you are over 600whp without popping open the...

    The bmw B58 engine dyno's its HP rating.... 330whp is bone stock.

    From the latest camo-flauged concept, I'm a fan of what I'm seeing. I understand why there are those here that will never give up the 2JZ... but the BMW inline 6 is no joke and gets decent gas mileage. The open deck n55 engines will handle 600rwhp, block itself over 800whp with upgraded rods...
  13. New Nissan 400z?

    Other Cars
    Nissan needs to cut R&D cost by sharing a sports car platform with their French partner Renault. That is not a bad thing given Renault recent history of RWD sports / race cars. VR30 for the next Z... continue the VR38 for the next GTR.
