It doesn't look that bad. It looks kind of like a MkIV Supra and an RX-8 had a baby.

Lol...then I guess you won't be buying one. Everything I've read shows that the inline top dogs are switching to V-series motors.

It's "Cost Effective" i think that's what i read.

ah, you lose again. It's supposed to have 2 different trim levels. both offering a NA engine.

The front and the rear are hideous.. I like the side though, if you keep looking at it, it looks like a Maranello. To those who want the inline-six, there's a thread on here thats talking about why they ran from the inline and went to the v. Emissions, weight distribution and most of all cutting the costs.

Read the thread on why they switched to v'-series motors right here: Clicky (http://www.drifting.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1140) ;)

Its a mut! Front looks like a jag, side looks like a ferarri, back looks like an rx-8, to me at least

It doesn't have to be turbo to be fast, with proper engineering it may have better response by neing NA. I've seen somewhere that they were talking about giving it something like 380hp.

So what if the styling isn't as classic as the other Supras - give it a year or two and they'll fix it to be in the consumers' liking. Subaru "fixed" the WRX (even though I like the round lights MUCH better than the Mazda-style lamps they use now).

Just be happy that it's back.

I sorta like it...looks very similar to the old one...don't car so much for all of the body lines though...kinda BMW roadster-ish. Don't care much for the headlights though. I saw some of the other concepts and I liked the other headlight designs better. I think it'll be a sweet car once it's released...definitely out of my price range though.

in the new supra they are planning on using EITHER a new v-8(some articals on this) and a high HP v-6 to out power and drive the 350z.. Turbos i seriuosly doubt, because of the tight emmissions and cost and reliability, i think there going N/A high HP. And the gentlemen agreement about no advertised HP of 300 in japan wil be gone i think. Go do ur reasearch and prove me wrong cuz i wana know the truht like the rest of you.**Cmon new toyota**

looks nice from rear and sides. front end is hideous though. Man some concepts look like utter crap in the beginning. Maybe they'lll use the tundra v8 with different plastic covers.

MK2SupraDrift
12-23-2003, 08:22 PM
Guys the front end is based on the GT2000 from back in the day like some time in 75 and up I think? Anyway thats why the front end is like that but I'm sure it wont be like that!!!
At lest I hope not? S h i t I didint even like the MK4s front end! Wish thay went back to pop up lites like the MK2 and MK3 And as far as V-6 or I-6 I dont know but I hope thay stay with the History of the Supra and stay I-6!!!

spock
12-23-2003, 08:36 PM
I think the 2000GT was first made in something like '69 or '70 - around the same time as the first Z car. And I agree on the I-6 thing. They need more cars with those. I'm sure engineers can come up with a well-balanced car with an I-6 . It seems like they could do more "thinking outside the box" and come up with an ingenious balanced design for the new Supra.

That thing can suck it. The RX7 concept is *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored* as fuk too. The only good looking cars imo, 350Z-G35-NSX

I read they decide to cancel the '05 supra

ALSO, this is maybe bad news but im gonna say it,

Toyota's gonna get rid of all their I-6's and use just V-6's and V-8's on their future cars...... like, the next Altezza(IS 300)

NOOOO!!!!

Yeah, it kinda does have some "Z4" styling to it. I've been seeing a lot of Supra concept pics in japanese mags, this is one of the better ones. Being a Toyota fan, I hope toyota comes out with something, if not the Supra, they've been pretty uptight and conservative about their new cars for years with nothing that special coming out lately. eh, blame the economy, haha. also, ever since news broke out about Nissan bumping back the Gt-R to 2007-ish, I've been really wanting a monster performance car coming out of Japan ASAP. HSC/NSX is cool, but my heart's with Toyota. Anyone know about any new Toyotas debuting at the La auto show?

12-24-2003, 01:30 AM
I dont know of any yet but I'll be one of the 1st ones at the door!!!

Damn dont you wish that Toyota made some thing like the FR AE-86 agien!!!

I dont think it looks that bad personaly ive seen worce working for GM seeing there concepts make me wana puke. i just dont like the front clip on the new supra but the rest i could deal with

99% of the stuff that comes out of GM looks like it was designed by Al Gore-boring.

Id get it and hack up the front a bit with sum diff headlights :cool:

looks like old fashion taste it going out the window

well actualy... the lines are almost boxy like the elder fr's (AE-86 for example) yet rounded off...kinda contradictory but i cant think of how else to explain what it looks like the new trends are startin to look like.

it seems now that the simple yet awsome look that people are shooting for going the JDM rout is opposite of what the dealers are puting out

who knows maybe there will be after market lights that will look like the older style to replace to the newer altezza style lights that are coming out of the show room

Thats not the supra concept, that's supposed to be the car toyota's making to give the NSX and european supercar makers copetition.

It's supposed to house a 400-500hp V-10

The next supra is said to have a V-8 w/ about 300hp

Thats stupid. They could keep the I6 and produce that much power, and still keep the good balance. The 93-98 supras made 320hp, i dont like this downstep, and i would much rather have the I6TT vs this new V8

i love it but he fist one is nasty looking. i would rather have no supra then that one. the back is ok not as sexy as the MKIV but ok. the front is the problem.

That front clip has to go its *Censored**Censored**Censored*. 300hp v8s do not impress me one bit, basically they're going to degrade from the level of performance they reached with the last model... Yes chas you're right the JZA80 made 320hp that'd be rediculous to backtrack like that. It'd be shooting themselves in the foot with hp war thats being waged..

Don't quote me on this but my friend works at honda R&D here in Ohio and he was at the test track, I forget the name of it, but he said he was working on a test for a Honda prototype and as they were leaving Toyota brought out a car that was hitting 200mph around the track and sounded like a nascar. He asked what it was and someone told him it was the new Supra. He said it sounded mean as *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored* and was fast as hell. Of course the car was all covered up and it was far away so he couldn't describe it to me. Thought I'd post that.

Also one of my friends worked at Toyota R&D in Ky. and told me a manager was talking about the new Supra and how it was going to handle and crap.. Buncha talk but idk, I here its going to be fast. Fast is a subjective term.

Fast to me is a 800rwhp Supra. lol!
