Check out that sheer amount of German plastic under the hood...

Now how would Cusco be able to sell you a tower bar for this car let alone a dipstick?

look what @Guff found!

Google Translate - Alain Dujardin-Toyota Gazoo Racing said:

Yes it actually plays a pretty important role because we actually started, new to Europe as well, with our motorsport activities. We are in the WRC rally, very important for the sale of the Yaris. Then of course we also have excellent results in Le Mans. For many years, finally tried number one. And we can immediately link these motorsport activities to the car market. For this we use the Toyota Gazoo Racing procedure. This is our new brand for sports car activities and the Supra is of course the flagship for this new activity. In Europe and the world. So the still stealthy Supra makes his first laps on the track of the festival. It's a really pure sports car. It's quite different from the GT 86 where we had to pay more attention to economic procedures and still have a vehicle that really gives driving pleasure. But this vehicle is of course something else. It is very extreme in driving conditions. We really tried to get the best out of it. Which of course is the claim, because we want to bring the past of the Supra back on the market. Construction is in cooperation with BMW. Under the hood is a 6-cylinder in-line engine and that's of course historically important, because the Supra was always present with a series 6-cylinder. In terms of performance, the Supra should offer more than 450 hp. The production starts early next year and you can expect the car in the summer, at the dealers in Germany.

Be sure to turn on the English subtitles (autotranslated). I think they may be going after the Miata market with this because it "has under the hood a six cylinder in wine engine".

Will the supra even have a dipstick?
BMW and Merc seem to be deleting that option.
Inquiring minds need to know.

Nevermind I found the dipstick it's now digital just like the shifter.

Thumbs down

I can tell you right now, HIGHLY unlikely that there's a physical dipstick. BMW started eliminating them over 10 years ago.

My Porsche doesn't have one either, but it actually makes sense in this application given where the engine is located. Still, if I forget to check the oil level before starting the engine, I have to wait 10-15 minutes for a reading.

Well look at the bright side this means no German plastic bits and pieces from the dipstick assembly would ever crack and fall into the plastic oil pan (been there done that).

The corolla doesn't exactly belong in that trio lol.
