Just saw this ad, consistent BMW ad placement throughout:



If you need a new toy for your car company, I guess it is a no brainer asking BMW M to handle the heavy lifting. At the end of the clip, that BMW I6 sounds fantastic, so thats a bonus.

WOW that is absolutely STUNNING!!!

Just a few minor changes make a huge difference, and you can see the MKIV lineage clear as day on that one. Bravo!

I believe all of BMW's B58's will/have benefited if true. Think about this, they started collaborating in 2012, the B58 wasn't released until 2015. Highly likely if what Tada has said in interviews is true that toyota may have helped out with quality stuff. Its been said in interviews that BOTH Toyota and BMW learned something from one-another during testing. Toyota saw how much actual road testing, etc BMW did and BMW saw how much quality testing Toyota did on individual parts/components.

You know what would be ironic? That the new "Zupra" is super reliable like a Toyota should be, and the new Z4 is about as reliable as a BMW gets.

That would be crazy lol, Could you imagine? I mean all manufactures in 2019 should be studying how Toyota makes such a reliable car...

My F30 has been pretty damn good, But its hard to be as good as Toyota at reliability they are the benchmark.

Toyota Supra TRD Performance Line Concept to be revealed in Japan

Quote:
A Toyota Supra TRD Concept is on its way, and we only have to wait till February 9 to see it. Officially named the Toyota GR Supra Performance Line Concept TRD (that's the last time we'll say that, too) it looks like a racy Supra with a big ol' wing hanging out the back.

All we have to go on is the sketch of the car's silhouette, which looks pretty good. The folks over at TRD generally bring more to the party than just aesthetic updates, though. We'll be intrigued to see if any significant power is added to the equation, possibly enough to bring it in line with the BMW Z4's 382 horsepower? Maybe we're dreaming. Aero, brake and suspension enhancements are most likely a given. The sketch is definitely exaggerating how low to the ground it'll ultimately stand, but we're still excited to see how Toyota chooses to modify the Supra first.

If Toyota were to rip the wing off the Mk IV and slap it on this car we wouldn't be disappointed. As of now they appear to be going the more functional route for the concept, with a wing designed to produce copious amounts of downforce. It's easy to begin speculating like mad about a car like this, but we should keep in mind that it's only a concept. What ultimately makes it into production or an aftermarket parts catalog is anyone's guess.

In case you were thinking of going to see it, know that TRD is pulling the wraps off at the Osaka Automesse in Japan — a long flight away from the Supra's reveal in Detroit last month. If you missed out on all the juicy details then, there's a backlog of Supra content for you to catch up on; from all the details on features and specs at the reveal, to comparisons, to our varied opinions on the new Supra, we've got you covered.

think about this: developing an engine takes longer than 3 years.

Its all a made up story for the potential toyota buying public to feel special.
There's no toyota tech in the z4/supra.
Its all 3/1 series tech, like every other z4 generation before it.
If you look at the underside of the g29, its all so familiar if you work on bmw's. No toyota influence to be found.
