Supra walkaround

A lower CG than the GT86--that sounds promising...

If the "leaked" dimensions are correct then it may have a shorter wheel base but to call it smaller is not really accurate. Overall it is slightly larger. Not much larger but certainly not smaller.




Wheelbase 2,570 mm (101.2 in) 2470 mm (97.2 in)
Length 4,240 mm (166.9 in) 4380 mm (172.4 in)
Width 1,775 mm (69.9 in) 1855 mm (73 in)
Height 1,285 mm (50.6 in) 1290 mm (50.8 in)

Technically correct, but aren't the proportions much different given that the BMW inline 6 is much longer than the 86 boxer 4? If you want 50-50 weight distribution, it also means the engine is pushed back from the front axle. Therefore, the passenger compartment and rear hatch area are probably much smaller. Hard to really compare on overall dimensions....

The statement wasn't "The interior is smaller" the statement was "The car is smaller". Not a big deal and I was simply pointing out that the car is not smaller according to alleged dimensions. Now of course the difference could simply be bumper length and body panels but still not "smaller".

Understood and I did read it that way. Just tried to take it one step further to get more of the "sense" of the car. It's looking a lot like the 370Z with slightly different body panels both in body dimensions and engine/drivetrain. Perhaps it will end up being a slightly better Z....

Compared to the MKIV, it's just 10 inches shorter in length (167 vs 177) which as said helps with weight distribution. Every other aspect is larger body wise.

A 3 inch shorter wheel base was probably the result of it being a 2 seater vs the 4 seater 86 and MKIV.
