How do you know that? Is the 86 using the 2.5L from the TC??


Might want to think about how old that 3.5L V6 is with respect to it's lifecycle btw.

Old, and a very reliable engine, that is still competitive. Torque feel of turbocharged engines is deceptive. BMW will not develop any special engines (look at new M3/M4 engine). Toyota is working on new engines, with cost reduction in mind too. So we could see a new I6 by Toyota, but with BMW.

Nice sighting VH! Can't wait to see that one. About time we got an updated/different concept.

New Supra is turbo 4 + 3 electric?

That is what is coming according to Autoguide: http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...ls-emerge.html


Is anyone going to pay $58-70K for that?

58k-70k? They aren't going to kill their RCF sales. It's gonna touch 100k easily. Hopefully it's just another rumor. I'd much rather see a 6 cylinder hybrid.

FLD said the same thing as well...

If true, I'm a bit disappointed. But hybrid systems are very promising, though they can be a bit dull if this car doesn't handle amazing.

I doubt that. FT-1 is not hybrid.

Everything so far speculated said the car would be around 60 grand. If it's actually 100k it's going to kill sales horribly unless the car can punch way above its price class in amenities, materials, and performance.

I for one am ready for the future. Bring on our electric overlords.

With the advent of super capacitors in WEC and LeMans and generally a hybrid theme in all of the top tiers of racing it will be coming our way if you like it or not. I think the segment were (20-30K) in will be immune for another generation, maybe two, but as the cost of hybrid tech comes down and the advances in tech come up this is the world we will be living in.

Say what you will but to me a high revving, turboed, 2.0L, with torque fill during spool up and gobs and gobs of torque sounds awesome to me. Add to that an ability to go 30-40 miles on electric power only (i.e. a commute to and from work) and they are on the verge of creating the perfect car for $5-6/gallon gas.

Gas isn't going to get cheaper anywhere. And every generation of car that gets made which is not as efficient as it could be, or doesn't use the latest technology available isn't doing us any favors. If a manufacturer wants a flagship in today's day and age they better come heavy with the tech, power, and efficiency all in the same package. Because if they don't someone else will.

I agree with SuperHatch on this one.

The only thing I'm going to miss however are my 3 pedals. Oh well. Future generations will look at manual transmission probably how I look at Carburetors.

Lets please keep all Supra talk in the official thread.

http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53322

Also this "report" is from Holiday Auto Magazine (Japan). They aren't the most credible source out there.

I'll jump on board as soon as a manufacturer comes up with a dummy H pattern shifter connected to their Dual Clutch Tranny that makes me feel like I'm still shifting my own gears. Yes, it'd be a placebo effect but I'd prefer it over the paddles.


Honestly I don't know why this hasn't happened yet. Nissan already has the technology in their syncro-rev matching manual to be able to sense the position of the shifter and predict your next gear to rev match. How come they can't pair that to a DCT to mimic a traditional 6 speed H pattern minus the clutch pedal? (I should patent that idea lol)
