For the past several months, we have seen prototypes for Toyota’s new sports car being tested in the wild. The car is expected to revive the Toyota Supra name, so a lot is being expected from this.

1. The New Supra will get a V-6 Engine

Based on the spy video of the prototype, the engine sounds a lot like a V-6 engine, based only on the turbo whoosh-like sounds coming from the car. This would prove a report back in July that the car is getting a new twin-turbocharged V-6 engine that has been developed for Lexus and some high-end Toyotas.

There were earlier claims that the Supra will get a 4-cylinder, but that seems impossible given the leak on the possible V-6 engine, which can produce up to 400 horsepower on its own. Paired with the Supra and a hybrid system similar to the Hybrid-R concept, and the V-6 can churn more than 500 horses.

2. The New Supra’s Design Might be Based on BMW’s Z4

Details about the new Supra are scarce for now since Toyota has yet to release any word about how the Supra is going to be designed. Rumors, however, are saying that the Supra will have a similar rear-wheel-drive platform that was developed for the BMW Z4. It can also be recalled that such a design was previewed along with Toyota’s series of FT-1 concept cars back in 2014.

The BMW Z5, a replacement of the Z4, will be a traditional sports car with a soft-top roof. The Toyota is aimed to be a showpiece for the Japanese company’s performance-oriented hybrid technology that is developed for the World Endurance Championship.

3. The New Supra is Going to Markets Next Year

Toyota is not sure yet what they’ll call the sports car, though we’re gunning for the Supra label. Whatever name it ends up with, we can see by next year once it’s released if it can live up to the name and the hype. It will arrive just in time for the 2019 model year.
