yea that is something I suspected, just a way to build followers with "fake news" (trump voice)

still they claim to have ordered one of the initial 1500 models for R&D

So if the Z4/Supra engine is already inferior to the M3 motor I can understand why the hardcoe supra folks are wanting the old school motor. 2jz is iron block too.

Personally I always thought it was dumb to strip off the amazingly engineered sequential twin turbo setup in favor of a giant single for anything less than a dedicated drag car. Not that I've ever owned or even ridden in one but I've always preferred quick spool and low end torque over big top end power.
From what I remember reading I thought they'd made some not insignificant changes to the MKV engine vs the BMW engine as-was such as a closed deck block. Hopefully they will take power better. In the interim I'm betting a lot of experimentation and a few kabooms.

In terms of the TT stuff, the down side was that they were supposedly hard on the second turbo (e.g. snapping shafts.) I could see better computers assisting "pre spool" helping with that potentially. I could see that being a big part, possibly clearances for twins and in the long term cost. It may also be that the area under the curve is enough that people don't care in a lot of situations. Car OEMs did a lot to get boost to come in quicker back in the day and made compromises to do it.

It's funny the JDM connection must have dried up. I thought my buddy got his for 1500 or so. Now they're holy fuck expensive like 7-10K on ebay.

Dual Clutch boxes are the way of the future. Toyota/BMW got that one right. I mean, the Supra was supposed to be a driver's car but it was also supposed to be extremely high tech too.

Supra gets standard automatic with torque converter not a DCT

Did anyone else see this video?

It shows that once the sub-frame was developed both parted ways.
