Toyota Supra, Coupe

qbrozen- It does kinda look like a Ferrari, but I think that the rear 1/4 looks strikiningly similiar to the Aston Martin Vanquish (or any other current day Aston model). Still, the design is nicer than some others I've seen. I just wish they'd make the front look like the Mark IV, just with an "updated" look to it. No more of this retro-fad stuff, please. I've just about had my fill (Ford Thunderbird, PT Cruiser, even Honda Element. They're all good cars, just too much "retro" flavor for my taste.). I can't read the numbers in that article, but did read some new info about the Mark V. I think that one engine used in the Mark V will be a 3.5 liter V-6 (still wish they'd continue with the inline-6, but no real business case for it I guess...) that produces 325 hp. That's 38 hp more than the 350Z, and hopefully in a car roughly the same weight. I'm just hoping that a Twin Turbo model will follow that will push around 450 hp. That would truly be Supra-dupra.
#15 of 16 front is very toyota 2000GT

side view is very Aston Martin, which is not a bad thing at all
#16 of 16 2005 Supra V

R&T stated a few months ago that the Tokyo Auto Show later this month would be the coming out party for the legendary Supra. Expect a 3.5L Six with around 290-300HP.
Also consider the tact taken with the Celica. Weight: 2500lbs. 350Z: 3285. Expect the new Supra to come in around 3100-3150 without Turbos, T-top reinforcements, or an inefficient inline-6 design hurting packaging. Toyota will probably go Hybrid for an extra 75HP to top the 350-375 C5/C6 Vette.
And Blacktalon, those pcs have been floating arund since 2000, I wouldn't put much into them. That ain't 'Yota style!
