New Toyota Supra Powertrain Details Emerge

Toyota’s sports car partnership with BMW will give birth to a Supra successor that, according to the latest rumors, will use a complex hybrid powertrain.

Japanese magazine Holiday reports that the new car will use a hybrid system with three electric motors and a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Two of the electric motors will sit in the front of the car powering the two front wheels while the third motor will be integrated into the engine and transmission to power the rear.

Toyota showed a version of that system last year during the Frankfurt Motor Show in its Yaris Hybrid R concept and again in more advanced TS040 Hybrid Le Mans prototype. As you might remember from past coverage, the Yaris Hybrid R uses a supercapacitor to store energy. That system is supposed to be the same equipment being packaged with the new Supra for a total system output of about 350 horsepower.

When Toyota revealed its FT-1 concept, which is widely thought to be a preview of the Supra, the Japanese company said it was targeting a curb weight somewhere around 3,000 lbs. Toyota is expected to reveal its new sports car sometime before 2017 as is BMW with its new platform-sharing sports car that will replace the current Z4.

    I would care about this car more if Toyota hadn’t teamed up with the snootiest, most douchebag-worthy company in the industry. They should have teamed up with Subaru again.

  • smartacus

    ^troll calling someone else a troll.

  • Shiratori90

    Yeah. It’s time for you to stop trolling, turn your computer off, and go to sleep before your mom yells at you again.

  • smartacus

    Ah you mentioned mom. Peeking into your exposed psyche i can see it is your MOTHER who is the source of your psychosexual maladjustment…and all this time i thought it was for your sister or cousin.

  • Shiratori90

    Yeah, you need help buddy. Time to get off of the computer and start taking your meds again……….

  • smartacus

    You are the next Elliot Rodger just waiting to happen because you can’t even get a blow up doll.

  • Shiratori90

    No. That’s you. You’re the one who is making dozens of troll comments at every chance you get. People with actual lives and relationships don’t have time for that.

  • smartacus

    No. That’s you. You’re the one who just prepared dozens of troll comments and clicked post on all of them at once. People with actual lives and relationships don’t have time for that.

  • Shiratori90

    What an idiot…..

  • smartacus

    And now you try to deny who you are

  • Shiratori90

    You deny your mom-fucking habits every day……

  • smartacus

    Now you are talking about yourself

  • Shiratori90

    Shouldn’t talk about yourself like that.

  • smartacus

    I know you have reading comprehension problems but i was talking about you.

  • Shiratori90

    You’re the one with the problems. That’s as clear as the day is long.

  • smartacus

    You have so many problems even your dog dumped you for your monkey momma

  • smartacus

    Toyoda should have teamed up with AUDI and share accelerator pedal technology.

  • Shiratori90

    Trolls will keep on trolling…….

  • smartacus

    Who you calling troll, troll?

  • Shiratori90

    What an ignoramus………

  • smartacus

    I can hear in your voice you are a lonely boy with no steady girlfriend.

  • Shiratori90

    No that’s you. Still living in your mom’s basement at the ripe age of 42……lol

  • smartacus

    No that’s you. Still sleeping in your mommy’s bed at the ripe age of 24…..lol

  • Shiratori90

    Yeah, no. That’s you. Snuggling with your mom/sister.

  • smartacus

    Yeah, no. That’s you. Snuggling with your hairy monkey mother.

  • Shiratori90

    Shouldn’t talk about your mom/sister like that…..

  • smartacus

    No im talking about your hairy monkey mother

  • Shiratori90

    And I can hear in your voice that you are a 40 year old fat bastard who lives in his slut of a mom’s basement and cums in her ass on a daily basis.

  • smartacus

    You drink the cum out of you mother’s ass after your dog ejaculates in her.

  • Shiratori90

    That’s you.

  • smartacus

    No that’s you

  • smartacus

    Toyota teamed up with the BEST company. Toyota should shoot the horse known as Scion because it’s on 3 legs. Toyota teaming up with Subaru was worse than teaming up with GM. Toyota should team up with Suzuki before sleeping with Subaru again.

  • Shiratori90

    What a douche………….

    Trolls will keep on trolling……

  • smartacus

    You look like a troll in the mirror and that is why you are crying inside.

  • Shiratori90

    No, that’s you. Your 19+ responses (or lack thereof) make that very apparent.

  • smartacus

    You look like an umpa lumpa in the mirror and you are crying inside.

  • Shiratori90

    No, that’s you.

  • smartacus

    No, that’s you, you even smell like it

  • Shiratori90

    No. That’s what you do (and you do it daily).

  • smartacus

    No, that’s you (and you take selfies with Chippendales)

  • Shiratori90

    That’s you, sucking their dicks for free……

  • smartacus

    No that’s you sucking dicks like corn on the cob

  • me_muscle

Because of muscle 9-liter stroked to 12-liter. Me beat a lot of jetta and civic and even fiat 500. Me big muscle power be fastest and badass because beat civic 1.3-liter.

  • Gofookyurself

    Should have been an inline six instead of a four banger. That’s always what the Supra has been. As for the trolls, grow the f*ck up.

  • Jimmy D.

    They are going to exclude a lot of potential buyers IF they go with a set up like this. A lot of tuners and just sports car enthusiast that will use the car for track days and driving event do not want a set up like this.

  • Bob Fishell

    For some reason, this reminds me of an old Studebaker Hawk.
