BMW insider: "385 hp Supra model is coming"

It will be sold in the U.S. and the countries not subject to Euro emissions regulations: Korea, Japan, Russia, Gulf states.

Understand that Toyota is playing this in such a way to keep sales going over the next few years. This means power bumps, new colors and trims, maybe a manual even, and of course a proper hot version at some point. I think we all already knew this though, no?

True, but I'm going off real world testing, not manufacturer's published figures. (Which are usually conservative anyway, so Supra could be faster)

Also, nothing stupid to worry about with the Caymans hitting any sort of fake speed limiter on top end.

The Supra's trunk looks tiny.....
Its supposedly 10.1 cubic ft vs the 86's 6.8

Is it really that much bigger? It looks just as small...

the Lexus RC has the same 10.1 cubic feet size and it looked....decently sized in person, and looks bigger than the Supra's in pictures.

That's very helpful to know thank you. Please feel free to remove my post. Or let me know if you would like me to remove the link.

I dont want to spread information that is not accurate.

Haha it's up to you. I'm not gonna delete it, as long as you know and member who read my comment knows that, that's all it matters.

It's so funny/odd part is, he was there at the event same time as I was. He hogged 1 Supra to himself whole time we were there at the Summit Point. He claim he asked Toyota &/or Chief Engineer... but I don't remember him asking much questions. Especially at the Summit Point Raceway. When we were there, more than half of the time, I was with Tada-san asking tons of questions. (both good and funny questions), but not once he came up asking technical questions.

I'm okay of comedic or journalist trying to make it different than others. Problem is when giving the false info. Sure make fun of lack of power compare to Z4, it's funny... but when Tada-san explain reasons why he didn't put front tower brace and so on AT THE EVENT and false info like Supra logo. Yeah... that's not a same font as A80 Supra logo... SMH.

"Toyota said, this automatic transmission is almost good as DCT. Why didn't they?" THEY DID EXPLAINED AT THE EVENT AND PREVIOUSLY!

Our trunk is pretty small with the rear seats up and the Supra is a hatchback and wider. Put the rear seats down and we get a ton more space.

Well we know how bad misinformation can be. I removed the link. Thx for providing insights.

My biggest gripe with Doug's review is the fact that he didn't know he wasn't reviewing the Launch Edition trim, but rather calling it a "pre-production model" when referring to the red leather portions on the driver side and black on the passenger. (not sure if he later corrected himself during the driving portion as I tend to not watch those parts of his reviews).

And this is why I disbelieve about 95% of the clickbait info. If they don't really know they just make shit up that they think sounds right and then the others just keep adding to it.

Pretty sure I could have gave a more accurate walkaround review of the car without ever seeing one in real life and really not giving a rat's ass about it.
