Nice that they're bringing back the badge. However, the collaboration doesn't speak good things to me about "Toyota performance". Almost seems oxymoronic now. While it's probably a great car, you've got Detroit pumping out 717hp or 797hp SRT Hellcats for not all that much more $ (& they are 4drs). While the Supra's handling (& maybe styling) is probably superior, it is liable to fall on its face on US streets.

I agree with all of it. I'd rather get a Camaro.

So, no thanks, Supra. Maybe when (if) they resurrect the Celica name they'll get it right again.

I don't know why many people are being negative towards the new Supra, but having driven a few BMW with N54 and N55 engine, I think the new Supra have a very nice engine ( Is it confirmed to have B58 engine? ).

But yes, reliability will be sketchy as with any other BMW.

I reckon the first modification to be done is to add oil catch can as is a direct injection engine.

Too bad no manual, but the ZF autobox is nice. Not as quick as DSG, but good enough to question is DSG even necessary?

I read Toyota actually change the engine tolerances to make it worthy of Toyota's legendary reliability.

But yes. I am sure it is a fabulous motor (BMW's turbo 3.0l L6 is always a peach) and while is true nothing beats manual gearbox for driver involvement; the ZF 8 speeder is also fabulous in its own right. Especially if all you want is straight line prowess.

That's right. Toyota disassembled BMW's engine and transmission and asked them to make it to their specifications.

And they did some engine limit testing which result in the engine can hold up to 700hp (I think Speed Academy video mentioned this). Sounds pretty solid to me.

And yeah, just get oil catch can(s) and if it is me owning the car I will definitely add Aquamist HFS4 WMI system for it. Those two alone will definitely keep the engine running very well and clean.
