Yup, there is a thread about this on the Toyota side.

Will the Supra and Z4 use the same engine? Is it possible that they are using different engines?

One article quoted in this thread says a Toyota guy said 450hp. Latest Motor trend has the z4 and Supra at 380hp each with same motor.

And above it says the CGI iron block. Why would Toyota bother with CGI when bmw readily makes aluminum motors with 380hp and over already?

Ugh!

Official specs aren't out, but I've read most posts on the Supra MKV forum over the past few months and here is what we think we know:

This Supra will likely use the same b58 (or b58xxx cousin) that's in the Z. Toyota keeps saying it'll be tunable like the MKIV supra.

If there is a lower trim, it'll use the bmw 4cy 2.0 turbo. Part of the world will get the 4cy option, not sure if US will yet.

There could be a higher trim (possibly called Gazoo, Toyotas racing name), if this comes out, it will be limited and likely 450hp. This could be an S58 or a Toyota modified B58 variant and will supposedly be very tunable and this is where the CGI iron block might appear.

The car is slotted to weigh 3000-3300 lbs and it will only be a 2 seater and not come with a manual tranny. The Auto might be a ZF8 or might be DCT.

Car is likely to run with a Cayman S around a track and have a very low center of gravity.


Technically its all just rumors but stuff is getting narrowed down and we should know more in October. Car is likely to be for sale in US in spring 2019 as a 2020 model.

A manual is also rumored to be launch 2 years after the initial release.

I'm pessimistic but wishing a set of golf clubs fit inside this Supra. No ability to fit my clubs is the only reason a Cayman isn't already in my driveway. I play way too often to buy a new car that requires I drive my beater Suzuki SX4 to play golf.

I hope this helps. Fast forward to 16:05 mark.
