Hmm. A 248 hp model would be a disaster. It's probably going weigh about a thousand lbs more than the 86, and the 45 - 50 extra hp will make it only marginally faster at best (and maybe slower...).

A 335 hp model makes sense. That means it will be on par with the current Z, and that's a reasonable aim, especially if Nissan has indeed dropped the ball on a new Z.

Basically, Toyota would pick up the lion's share of customers who wanted a new Z when one isn't available.

Holding back from Detroit seems odd to me, though. Is BMW releasing their car there? If so, maybe they didn't want the two cars being revealed at the same time?

I doubt the new Supra will weigh 3800lbs that would be a disaster in itself. I think it will weigh around the same as a Z or lighter.

Wow that looks great even if they get somewhat close to that I think it will still look very sharp.

That looks great if true. I still have very very low hopes for the car overall though. Toyota has been a constant disappointment as a brand since the death of the original Supra. Given the rumors and everything else we know about the brand itself I donít see that changing.

You forgot: Interior by IKEA.

It will be Toyota's (um, Gazoo's) first truly global car.
