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

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*.

 

 

 

*Well, around about the Supra Mk IV. :lol:


2007 350Z (my second Zed) - You'll get there when you get there, and that'll be fine. It's a better way to travel, and a much nicer way to live.
2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Better gearbox though.

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 . . .

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.

You know, if it looked like the concept (above) even at £50k it would be tempting, despite the lack of power. Sadly, from what I can make out it will be a great deal more mundane-looking than that so, to coin a phrase, I'm out.

£1k refundable deposit.  I guess its worth a punt for someone.  Have you put one down mate?

It was a 2014 prototype which I think everyone hoped was the Supra - but alas...

I need to see the car uncamouflaged before making my mind up.
I think the engine has far less lag than the GTR and at 390 Lbft of torque will demolish a 370z.
Am disappointed it does not have a twin clutch gearbox but like the track focused design.
I don’t think the price has been stated yet.

I'm interested to see what it's like but I'm not one to put down a deposit without at the very least seeing what it's like uncamouflaged and knowing the price. If I'm honest I was also hoping it would be closer to 400bhp (as I still am the new Zed when it's announced in 23 years time). However, you know the aftermarket will undoubtedly love this car, so there is potential.

 

My eyes are elsewhere for next year however so we'll see what develops in the meantime.

 

PS. I'm looking at a potential new car option (for next year) tomorrow to see what it's like and whether it fits in my garage! Still may keep the RS3 and fettle with it yet - who knows!

So £1000 deposit are they doing a limit run so we need to worry about not getting one.

I hate the very concept of the car. The mark iv is a legend, massively over engineered in Toyota's heyday but this attempt is nothing but a rebadged bmw..It even looks like a z4 coupe.

I love it, and I generally still attend the old school.  I've already offered my local dealership first refusal on any single bodily organ as a deposit.

 

That said, I also added that if they could get hold of a 2000GT for me they could have first refusal on the every part of me.
