Toyota‘s newest sports car could have 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque.

The Japanese automaker recently confirmed a racing concept will debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, previewing the new Supra. But according to Japan’s Best Car magazine, the sports car will get its motivation from a BMW 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six engine providing 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, while tipping the scales at 3,284 pounds. Compared to the previous model, the new car is 5.4 inches shorter, 1.7 inches wider, and 0.6 inch taller. Its wheelbase measures 97.2 inches, which is 3.2 inches shorter than the old Supra.

If the report turns out to be accurate, the Toyota Supra will only be offered with an automatic transmission, but the BMW Z4 will offer a manual. It also says the Supra will come standard with 17-inch wheels and tires, measuring 225/50 up front and 255/45 in the rear. It’s more likely that, at least in the U.S., it will arrive with 18- or even 19-inch wheels.

Keep in mind that these are just rumors and Toyota likely won’t be confirming anything, even at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show where the racing concept is set to debut. We may get some details next month, but final specifications won’t be announced until the car’s production debut, which will likely be early 2019.

    Auto only?!? Typical Toyota. Lets make what might be a good car terrible by putting a junk transmission in it. If I wanted an automatic I'd take the bus. That is just setting this thing up for failure with enthusiasts. Who are the only people that have been longing for the return of this car.

      Sorry you lost me when you think your better than me because you blah blah blah. Douche your the type of person that causes all of the accidents in my city. Every single one had some douche in a manual who thinks he was a better driver who likes to wack off while trying to beat someone to a red light and ends up plowing into some poor saps toyota camry.

    Umm, Hyundai Genesis Coupe is going to have 480hp. Toyota what planet are you on? Sure as heaven isn't this one. Sooo the LC500 has a lazy chassis and 467hp and this has 335?! Lol Toyota got knocked out in 1998 by the market and woke up in 2019 thinking it was still 1998... I'm just curious what market segment this is actually built for, it seems they made them up out of thin air. What are the targets? Camry solara? Monte Carlo SS? No really what $%&+ are you on? Good luck with your imaginary market...

      The Lexus market, because that is what this will effectively be.
