New Toyota Supra to get 4- and 6-cylinder engines

This past weekend, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, saw the most recent reveal of the long-awaited return of Toyota’s legendary Supra sports car. While official numbers have yet to be shared, it appears as though the Supra will be made available with a pair of inline engines.

The most obvious is the 6-cylinder. As the Supra is the next BMW Z4’s non-identical twin, it should feature BMW’s single-turbo inline-six 3.0-litre B58B30 engine. In both cars, output is rated at 335-horsepower. In documents pertaining to the 8-speed ZF 8HP automatic transmission, the Z4 will be endowed with a 375-horsepower version.

The bigger news is that both the Z4 and Supra are slated to also share the BMW B48B20 2.0-litre 4-cylinder mill. It’s output is expected to be of 262-horsepower. According to available details, this will be the better driver as it will have improved weight distribution and sharper steering feel. As well, for those thinking about a 2JZ engine swap, know that it’ll fit.
