According to Japan’s Best Car magazine, the production model will measure 4380 mm (172.4 inches) long, 1855 mm (73 inches) wide and 1,290 mm (50.7 inches) tall with a wheelbase that spans 2,470 mm (97.2 inches). If these numbers pan out, the car would be slightly shorter and wider than the previous-generation Supra.
The report also claims the car will be powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that develops 335 hp (249 kW) and up to 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque when overboost is factored in. The engine will reportedly be paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission which should make the model relatively quick considering it is rumored to have a curb weight of 1,496 kg (3,284 lbs).
This should be taken with a relatively unhealthy dose of salt as the magazine’s past claims have included everything from an all-new Toyota MR2 to a 300 hp (223 kW) Toyota 86 with all-wheel drive. That being said, the numbers are somewhat plausible but only time will tell.
