I don't think 2900 lbs ist some impossible number.
Don't forget our flat 4 is actually pretty damn heavy because of it's design. Vorshlag threw a V8 and a tremec transmission in and only gained 50 lbs

So it's power train could easily be lighter. And only needing to handle 340 hp the transmission could be light as well

This is what I’m waiting to see... I think they’ll create a good car then price it stupidly.

there is another person that was at the dealer showing in Denmark. i guess the good news is that it can't to to far from a public unveiling.

It probably will be more than people are expecting. Just look at the twins, people were guessing low 20's but it was realistically closer to 30k if you factored the brz into the equation.

No go for Detroit. It's all about profitable SUVs as more jerks get into these road hogging behemoths that I can't F$#^#^%$ see around.

http://www.motortrend.com/news/toyot...lineup-expand/

If you were hoping to see the return of the Toyota Supra in January at the North American International Auto Show, you will be disappointed.

It’s too soon to unveil the much-anticipated sports car. Specifications are still being finalized and it’s not at production levels yet, said Jack Hollis, Toyota group vice president and general manager of the Toyota division in North America.

Even the name has not been pinned down. Supra is a candidate but not the only candidate. In fact, “there are other names that could be better,” Hollis told Motor Trend in an interview. Cressida? Celica? And there have been suggestions it could be badged Gazoo instead of Toyota, a nod to Toyota’s Gazoo Racing team.

This car (340hp talked about up above) will be called a Celica, while the Gazoo Racing tuned Celica will then be called the Supra. As Akio said, this is the Supra, but not quite what you think. Think ala Mk. II Celica, and then Celica Supra. However, it will just be a GR Supra, and not a GR Celica-Supra. Again, this "is" the Supra, but not the stand alone Supra everyone was thinking.

That is the reason there will not be a M version of the Z4, and it's because of the GR tuned Supra, as this is what will differentiate the GR Supra and the Z4.

Personally, I like the name of Celica Supra, as it means to be surpass the heavens, but again I stress it will be a GR Supra.

If that's the case I just hope they price the two cars accordingly. Mid thirties for the turbo I4 Celica and 50-60 for the turbo I6 Supra? Am I crazy to expect that?

IF it is indeed slotted to be a Celica and Supra, then the Celica will probably be more like 40k otd and the supra being 60k otd.

They already *have* a proper rwd Celica, the 86. Honestly I would greatly prefer a sports car built on the 86 platform and not a BMW-developed oversized/overweight/overwrought/overpriced luxo "sports" car.
They could have done something a lot simpler and lighter and cheaper that I would have liked a lot better. This car's development has annoyed the Christ outta me... We coulda had a much cooler new sports car a lot sooner and for a lot less $$$ than this is gonna cost. Doh...

from what i understand, both cars will have an I6. the "Celica" is 340hp, while the higher performance "Supra" will be around 385-400hp.
