Also, wtf... this thing is going to be super expensive. I know the last gen Supra, when loaded, was very pricey also.... but let's be honest, that was the reason Toyota killed it off... too pricey, not enough sales, kill it!

A post on the SupraMkV forum reveals a list of BMW internal codes that might help shed light on Toyota’s next Supra. According to the list, the U.S. market will get two different versions of the BMW-developed powertrains: code names DB23 and a DB43 of the Toyota-spec J29 chassis.

The DB23 will be related to the Z5 30i, which likely means a turbocharged I4 under the hood. The DB43 will, of course, be a turbocharged I6 variant based on the BMW Z5 40i. Want to row your own gears? According to this list, you’ll need to track down a vintage Supra -- the models listed here will be automatic only. In Europe, there will be manually shifted versions of the Z4’s replacement, but none of those will bear a Toyota badge.There isn’t a mention of an all-wheel-drive system or a hybrid driveline in this code sheet, so there's still hope for more powerful and stick-shift versions of the Supra to come later.
There’s still no word on when the Supra will see auto show lights, but we imagine we’ll see something official about the car by the end of next year.

Otherwise thanks for cloning rhe 370z, toyota.

And the car is rumored to have 335hp... if thats true... way to match the 370z again... which has been at it since 2009.

I hope that is a bad chop... how did they go from the red concept to that?

also B48 is good for 240hp... on paper. so they are gonna tune it to be over 300hp? Did not reach the article.

The next-generation Toyota Supra is coming, and we’ve seen the rough shape in spy footage, but no one is exactly sure what it’ll look like on an auto show floor. Of course, digital renderings are always a guessing game, but the folks at the SupraMKV forum have been honing their renderings since the next-gen Supra was announced. This latest rendering shows a different grille and a slightly revised body shape -- and it looks absolutely sharp.




What we do know about the Supra is that it’s being developed alongside the next-generation BMW Z-car and will likely house some Bavarian parts -- namely engines and transmissions. That means the Supra may only spit 335 hp to the rear wheels, which might be fun but will be slower than the high-strung cars it would have to compete against at dealers. The next Supra will also be void of a manual transmission.

Toyota Supra concept teased before Geneva debut

That sound you just heard was car enthusiasts around the world losing their collective mind.
February 12, 2018 3:35 PM PST
Enlarge Image
Toyota hasn't even promised that it would be called Supra yet, but if it isn't, that will be one big missed opportunity.

Toyota
It's been a long time since the speculation began, but it appears Toyota is finally ready to acknowledge that the Supra is coming back.


Toyota put out a quick press release late in the day on Monday with the headline, "The Legend Returns." That's promising, until you see the word "concept" shortly after that. But fear not, the release brings it all the way back around when it says this concept "signals Toyota's commitment to bring back to the market its most iconic sports car."

Toyota's clearly talking about the Supra -- sorry, Celica fans, although you can rest comfortably knowing the Supra name was 1st attached to a Celica. All we know right now comes from this teaser, which ain't much. It'll have a giant wing and a roof that looks suitable for helmets thanks to its double-bubble-like shape, but that makes sense, because Toyota bills this as a "modern racing concept." And it's important to note that this is just a concept, and a motorsport-themed one at that -- don't expect it to be a faithful preview of the production Supra, if Toyota's even going to call it that, which it hasn't promised to. So, I guess Celica fans can still hold out some hope, albeit not much.


No matter what, we'll know more when Toyota pulls back the curtain at the Geneva Motor Show -- more specifically, Mar. 6 at 3:45 a.m. Eastern. Better set your alarms now.

Still has a bit of FT1 looks, IMO, from the tiny teaser.

More from TG:

Excellent news, Internet. At next month’s Geneva Motor Show Toyota will reveal a “modern racing concept” that signals its “commitment to bringing its most iconic sports car back to the market”. So in a roundabout kind of way, this gloomy, tightly-cropped teaser image is probably our best look yet at the new Supra. Or at least, a lightly concept-ified version, with a MASSIVE spoiler.

What do we know about the new Supra… Well, Toyota remains tight-lipped on the subject. But we know it’s been co-developed with the next BMW Z4 (as previewed at Pebble Beach last year) and that the pair will share hybrid technology. Rumour has it that alongside conventional powertrains, both BMW and Toyota will deploy petrol-electric versions using BMW’s four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with electric motors on the front axle fed by supercapacitors.

We know too the Supra will wear ‘Gazoo’ badges, just like the impressive Yaris GRMN. It’s Toyota’s performance sub-brand, which after making its name in Japan is going global. Looking forward to seeing, erm, something at Geneva? We are.

I hope that's just a render...because it's a bit too ridiculous in the styling department.
