Reasons We Need a New Toyota Supra
A SERIOUS RACER

IT CAN BE A 10-SECOND AUTO
The Supra is a seriously, seriously tuneable point. The twin-turbo 2JZ-GTE engine was beamed in from the bulletproof Japanese straight-six measurement (various other residents consist of the Nissan Sky line R32/R33 sixer), so it can be dabbled to generate more than 1,000 bhp. Don't believe us? Go here. And also here. And below. As Toretto would have it, simply pop the hood, include some over night parts from Japan (just place it on your tab at Harry's) and you'll have yourself a ten-second auto.
The inside's just like a single-seat racer - there's a hoop of instruments, and also they're all angled at the chauffeur. Likewise, the rev counter's substantial as well as in the middle, similar to you 'd find on an old Porsche 911.
IT relates TO THE 2000GT
Type of ... Trace the front-mounted six-cylinder engine, rear-wheel drive Grand Tourer family back with Toyota history, and you'll wind up at the 2000GT. Which is, obviously, great.
Unlike it's Japanese hyperloon contemporaries (Nissan Horizon, Honda NSX), there just weren't any type of four-wheel drive or four-wheel steer tricks to be seen. It complied with web page one, phase one of the petrosexual manual to the t - engine in the front, gearbox in the center, as well as driven wheels at the back. Making sure it didn't wind up smeared along a bus quit was totally down to the soft, fleshy bit between the guiding wheel as well as seat.
Toyota took weight saving seriously on the Supra. It obtained an aluminium bonnet, aluminium front crossmember, aluminium oil and also transmission frying pans, and aluminium suspension upper A-arms. There was likewise a magnesium-alloy wheel, plastic gas tank, and also gas infused back looter. Even the rug fibers were hollow to save weight. That whole lot conspired to a 91kg weight decrease compared to its precursor. More than 100kg lighter in non-turbo kind.
The Supra had a twin-turbo setup that ran in series, which straightened out the turbo lag common to most other extraordinarily aspirated Japanese engines. 90 percent of optimal torque was readily available completely from 1300rpm to 4500rpm, prior to you were interrupted at 156mph.

IT KEPT TOYOTA COOL
Remember when Toyota suggested something aside from Prius and Avensis? Something that wasn't middle of the road, however instead all over it, after that in the fast lane? OK, so there's the excellent GT86, yet there's likewise a huge, aspirational opening in the line-up. An opening that utilized to be filled up by the Supra - a cars and truck that did 200mph down the A1, won on Sunday, sold on Monday, and also sustained adjusting sectors across the globe. The wreckless yin to the reputable yang. Build a new one quickly, Toyota. For both our sakes.
