The Toyota sibling is starting to shape up. It's still heavily disguised. I'm excited for these two sports cars.

Now if it's badged a Lexus, that changes everything. But by the looks of that mule, it ain't gonna be no Lexus.

Good sign, that!

Hopefully it's using the GT3's performance as a benchmark, and not its price ...

I sure hope it's doesn't where the "L" badge. They already have the RC-F and LF-A, neither of which left a lasting mark in the automotive world, not that they weren't good cars. The Supra replacement, HAS to be an iconic vehicle and Toyota would be foolish to not ensure it lives up to the legacy of the name. BMW has a little more leeway with the Z5 moniker because it would be a first and it's replacing the Z3/Z4 which both didn't fair well critically.

Those skinny little tires on the back...

Nothing looks very exciting about this car at all. Hard to tell with all the camo on it, hopefully they have a nice looking car under there.

what does everyone wish the new supra will have? For me, in a dream world the new supra would have:

-an inline 6 twin turbo, that has more tuning and aftermarket potential than the n54. Also more reliability (shouldn't be hard)
-RWD and 6 speed manual transmission
-Be wide enough to fit some decent rubber in the wheel. (unlike the 135i)
-cost around 40K for a base or possibly less.

Id probably be in the market for one if it fits those criteria

You might be right except for the last bullet. I'd guess if it's a straight six though that it will be the B58, so less reliable than the N54, or at least a much bigger PITA because of the rear mounted belt drive.

The standard turbo 4-cylinder Z4 already starts at $50k. For everything on ODU135's wishlist I'm thinking $50k+ is more likely.

This is heavily rumored by multiple sources -- and based on what Toyota typically does with its model trims, this is the most likely scenario:

There will be three levels of Supra:
- Base will be RWD and have a single twin-scroll turbo four -- probably the same engine in the Lexus GS -- with a higher-power model available. Maybe a Bxx BMW engine? Perhaps ...
- Mid will be the twin-turbo V6 that was just launched in the Lexus LS500, re-tuned for performance. It will NOT be the NA V8 in the Lexus LC500. RWD and AWD will be available.
- High will be an AWD hybrid, probably paired with the V6 and likely a similar powertrain to the Lexus LC500 hybrid. Rumors suggest that the electric motor is housed within the transmission, suggesting that it will primarily be used to supply extra torque and low-load power. It will actually makes less power than the standalone TT V6.

Based on all of this, I'm really, really curious which models get an MT option and which won't. Plainly the hybrid won't ... and I suspect the standalone V6 won't, either. I bet the only trim that gets one will be the TST 4 bangers.

Interesting, and certainly believable. So the only manual one would likely be a heavier, more powerful, larger BRZ of sorts. Not especially appealing.
