Toyota Supra to gain entry-level, BMW turbo-four

Sandy Mccarthy | 18 July, 2018, 18:38

Toyota showed off its new Supra at Goodwood, albeit in camouflaged prototype form. The second is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4, specifically, BMW's B48B20 mill. Furthermore, Road & Track says Testsuya Tada, the chief engineer for the Supra project, confirmed the plan for a four-pot model during a chat at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The 2.0 liter turbo-four in question will likely be a tuned version of BMW's B48 engine, found in basically every BMW with a "30i" designation. BMW and Toyota are jointly developing the vehicle, and we expect a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels. According to the document, expect 262 hp from the smaller unit.

According to Scott Gottlieb, the FDA commissioner "The FDA is committed to maintaining our gold standard for safety and efficacy". Anyone taking the information should also call their doctor or pharmacist to figure out what medication they should take.

In an interview with Road & Track, Tada-san is said to have confirmed not just that a four-banger is on the way, but also that it will be lighter, with better weight distribution and a sharper turn-in.

A closer look at the auto by the website adds that the brake setup appears to use front and rear calipers identical to those on the G30 BMW 5 Series, which use the same B48 2.0 litre and B58 3.0 litre engines expected in the Supra. The document also reveals that the next BMW Z4 - co-developed with the Supra - will gain an additional 3.0 litre six-cylinder variant which produces 381 PS. So the new one sort of pays homage to that.
