fast is fast though
I don’t see the problem though if I remember correctly some of the JGTC supras used 4cylinder engines
Yes the JGTC cars used the 3SGTE, the supra belongs with a Straight 6.
The JGTC-500 Supras used a specialty race version of the 3sgte which was the 503e engine. Used for weight balance and savings.
But the power train and engine in the new Supra is questionable. Seems like it’s going to be an awd platform with a trio electric set up (two electric engines up front and a third assisting the gasoline engine).
Everyone’s all worried, or complaining, or nervous at best. Two of the best performing cars in the world right now use similar technology - the 918 and the P1. It’s the future. Embrace it, because cars are about to be faster and more efficient than ever.
Hell, even BMW’s i8 uses a very similar system with a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder turbo. That car’s 0-60 is 3.8 seconds according to road and track. That’s quick.
This new car is gonna be plenty fast. Don’t worry.
My thought’s exactly, while I agree I prefer the supra with a straight six, smaller engines with hybrid and turbo assist are the way of the future, and are proven to be more than capable of producing enormous amounts of power. It is tempting to stick with tradition, but if you want a straight six supra just buy a mark 4, or a mark 3. The BMW M division has embraced the use of smaller engines with turbo assist, and they still produce some of the best drivers’ cars around, so don’t just look at a new car’s cylinder count and discount it, at least try the car before you judge.
