Lovely looking car, but 340bhp is at least 60-100bhp too little, even for starters.

Most cars are A to B. Mine is A to Z.

I know what you mean, but it depends how it puts it down.  From the sound of it it puts it down quite well. And we all know that horsepower figures are just for pub bragging rights, and it's a long time since Toyota worried about that*.

Good news: https://www.pistonhe...n-the-way/38807 .  No, make that very (ad infinitum) good news . . .  Talk about an early birthday present. :lol:

 

I'm not overly surprised considering the premium that Mk.IV (and older) Supras carry nowadays, and the fact that some of them still go to Toyota garages for servicing - I've seen a few service books of those for sale over the last few years that have had twenty or more Toyota stamps in them . . .

Good news.  Is this prototype testing dragging on somewhat?

Perhaps, but if it's perfect from day one that'll be a first for this type of car.  If it is - if it doesn't use any oil, if it doesn't quickly overheat its diff, if its CD player doesn't skip when its cool and damp, if the gearbox isn't so intransigent when cold, if the rear lights don't mist up, etc, etc* - won't it be worth the wait.  And I hope Toyota get the credit for holding it back until it was perfect.
