looks like some mention up top too about v6 for the gs and 5.0 as sole ls engine.

ItalianStallion 05-04-2003 11:26 AM

i dont think the 3 litre in the GS is a straight six, its a V6.

ItalianStallion 05-04-2003 11:27 AM

PS when is the tokyo auto show?

WOOOHOOO! Please be twin turboed. That would be awesome. :butthead:

Python2121 05-04-2003 08:37 PM

twin-turbo would rape all!

chef chris 05-04-2003 09:42 PM

The v-6's just aren't as torquey as the straights though...I love the feeling of the inline six.

The 3 liter in the GS is an Inline engine. It was based on the base engine for the Supa. It is also, almost identical to the IS300's engine.

It probably wont be turbo at first. So wait a year or two and save up to get the slightly more powerful version :rolleyes: :D:D:D:D

AcuraFan 08-28-2003 10:03 AM

Supra Update From Autoexpress
 
Hot Hybrids Are Charging Up


The sports cars of the future will be hot hybrids. That's the message from Toyota, which is planning a mid-engined fast model using its fuel-cell technology. The firm recently demonstrated this with a racing version of its Prius.

But that's only the start. A new car, set to recall the spirit of the Toyota Supra, is already under development. It will be based on the next-generation MR2 and is likely to be powered by the Lexus RX330's 3.3-litre straight-six engine. It will also use the same hybrid pack as the upmarket off-roader, but with a higher power output.

There'll be 4WD but, to promote the sporty handling, power will be biased towards the rear axle. The Sports Hybrid is tipped to debut at 2005's Tokyo Motor Show.

It's not the first time the company has demonstrated its desire to build an ultra-high-performance MR2. In 2001, Toyota commissioned its Formula One team to produce a 400bhp edition for the Essen Motor Show.

Of course the Lexus 330 wears a V6 engine and not an inline engine, but that's beside the point.

kansaiwalker1 11-24-2003 07:59 AM

I love it. Only hope it get here soon.

Jaydef03 11-24-2003 08:04 AM

um,mm. that pic is such bullshit... can ANYONE tell that that is a Aston Martin? w/ just silly ass lights and toyota badging

Is it inline in Japan or is that just a mistake in the article?

Also, it's not beside the point for some enthusiast buyers who greatly prefer the smooth sound of the inline engine to the raspy, raucous sound of a V6.

jimcol711 11-24-2003 08:21 AM

thats the same old lousy photoshop thats been floating around for months. and that tailend looks ricey....at best. its honestly terrible. at least the REAL Altezza has DECENT looking altezza lights, this thing looks like the cheapest knock off altezza taillights for an older eclipse. i think those jap auto papers that everyone scans are just hilarious. its ALWAYS photoshops and sketches. its like the fucking american tabloids. its the weekly world news of auto mags!!!!

1SICKLEX 11-24-2003 09:52 AM

3.3 is a V-6 not Inline. Hybrids of all kinds are coming from Toyota soon, soon soon.

This article came from England. Lexus only now starts its existance in Japan, so the above quesitons is moot.

I am 99% sure that the RX330 gets a V6 in Europe. I think it's detuned but it's the same engine we get here.

STANLEY MALYSHK 11-26-2003 03:33 PM

looks like toyota has jumped on the retro bandwagon. if you'd like to see the inspiration for this new supra, anyone recall the 1967 toyota 2000 GT?. it was used as a James Bond movie car. corgi toys produced a die-cast metal replica. log on to www.
supercars.net . i searched under toyota 2000 GT. that distinctive nose is almost identical. honda's original roadster of the 60's was its competition. it was also the inspiration for todays S2000. its good to see that toyota won't stand for the 350Z enjoying all the accollades.

pimpscls 11-26-2003 09:34 PM

that is pretty fuking nice

Supra news
 


99.999% positives:

a) It will be called "Supra".

b) 2 models will be offered, base and GT version.

c) Base = $30K-ish and will smoke a 350Z.

d) GT = $50K-ish and will use a V8.

e) It will be sexy, and worthy of the name Supra.

f) When he sends me pictures (yes, real photos of the CA mystery car) you know I will piss off Toyota by posting them here. :lol:


Maybes (rumors from TRD):

a) F1 paddle shifters.

b) Boost? He mentioned the words "turbo" and "blower'. :eek:

c) May see it as a 2006 model offering.


Interesting TRD info:

a) They have stroker 4.7L V8 Tundra race engines on the shelf that now are like 5.4L and make 600hp N/A. They are for sale. MKV Supra swap?

b) The Scion tC Vortech blower kit has an optional water-air intercooler for 220+fwhp. $3K suggested price.

c) The "Volta" may be a reality, but only in Europe as a $100K offering.
