Thanks......I think the 2UZ engine is iron block????? I always though it was, the 4.7 dates back to 1998. The 1FZ is iron you are right. Thanks

I thought it would use BMW engines.

The iron block rumors picked up steam recently due to insider info from ppl that are close to Tada, the chief engineer.

Obviously i rather the Supra have unique setup rather than just use the B58 BMW engine.
I think the iron block version might be the top range and the B58 standard engine.

I donít think the 4cyl is coming to US market.

Lol, the 8AR sucks, can't be hacked, turbo lag galore, poor MPG if driven more than an old lady would. At least, the BMW motor has great potential to extract additional power. As a former BMW fanatic, I still can't say I'm happy about them not using a Toyota motor. This car does not deserve to be called the Supra.

This debut has become more drawn out than the nsx at this point. Setting up for a total disappointment

When you're right, you're right. What's it been now, 5-6 years?

Iron block? I'll be quite shocked if this turns out to be true.

Two great brands but it seems people are often bmw fans or toyota fans. Will potential buyers feel like traitors?

This "Toyota Supra" is more a BMW than it is a Toyota. Its pretty much a BMW Z5 reskin with a Toyota Supra badge.

I wonder how will this sell considering there's nothing Toyota about it. I honestly feel like its insulting the Supra name.

My friend itís getting an iron block inline 6 - thats as Supra as you can get!

The car will weigh 3100 lbs and has some meaty tires.....255 front and 275 rears. Itís supposedly has CF roof and other CF components. This thing is SMALLER than FRS/BRZ!



Interior looks nice and has Idrive

Priced at $65k for 2seater will be tough.
It needs to be make great power and have tune potential to get a following.

check Supra forums for insider info on the iron block, its coming from several reputable sources there.....we shall see i guess
What are the links?

I don't think if it has a cast iron block that it is going to weigh 3100lbs unless they are using a lot of aluminum and carbon fiber and it sounds hard to believe it will have its own unique iron block while BMW is aluminum.

All these years and rumors are it will only have 20 more hp then the 1998 Supra, likely very disappointing.

At least with Acura the power and performance of the new NSX was on a whole other level then the last NSX and it is beautiful.
