2008 Toyota Supra

Rumors of the new Supra from Toyota have been circulating from mounths. With the Lexus GT 450 serving as the company’s halo sports car, Toyota would benefit by having a sports car that’s a bit more affordable. Wtih two performance machines in its stable, Toyota would no longer be viewed as simply a producer of reliable and green transportations appliance.

There will be both coupe and convertible version of the car, probably introduced at the same time. The convertible is reported to have a folding hard top and is intented to be more of a boutique car than a serious sport car. The coupe, however, will be just that, eqquiped with a 5 liter V8 engine producing 450 hp and 383 lbs-ft of torque. This engine will not be available in the open-air model because of rigidity issues. It is said that when Toyota started development of the Supra, it was only a convertible hard-top form with 4.3 liter V8. Later in the process, Toyota opted to go with a more powerful engine. But with the additional came extra loads that the convertible couldn’t stand, so the company was forced to create a fixed-roof version of the car.

The Supra’s suspension is one befitting that of a true sport car: upper ad lower A-arms up front and a multilink setup at the rear. No doubt the tuning of the shocks and springs will be different in the V8 and V6 models, but expect both version to be relatively firm.

It is expected the V8 Supra to be priced about 50000$. The more affordable Toyota Supra (40000$) will come with a 3.5 liter V6, the same powerplant used in the Lexus IS 350 and GS 350, but tuned to produce more power: 350 hp and 275 lbs-ft of torque.

Toyota will have a car that’ll eclipse the performance of the Nissan 350Z, Mazda RX-8 and Honda S2000. Look for the Supra to make appearance in October of 2007.

for all of u supra haterz out there all of ya’ll they just confirmed it an yeah iam the very first to know about it, they just confirmed they will make the next supra in 2008 an it will have an out put of 400hp.....take that u s

Both Toyota and Lexus are showing concept sports cars on their websites and auto shows. Toyota seems to be pushing the Hybrid Ft-HS. Not a fan of the body but pretty sick stats if they badge it as a Supra.

My two cents on all these comparisons - What sets the Toyota’s apart are quality and the V6 engine block of the last Supra. Probably the best evry made. The strength is ridiculous with plenty of room to bore out as well.

Slighty off but referencing everyone yapping about qtr mile times - qtr mile times.

The first sub 6 second qtr mile import happens to be .....
A Toyota Solara. That is f’d up!

My question would be how do Supra lovers feel about Toyota Putting a V8 Engine On this New SUPRA.
Would they Buy one Or Buy the V6 Supra.

yo turbodlt4z28 i hear wat u sayin an yeah a stocksupra can’t beat any car but give it sum juice an maybe sum weight reduction n you’ll have a hell of a battle on ur hands, so u beat a stock supra ok so wat i beat a stock gtr before no big deal a car is a car

none of those pics so far are clsoe to what we can expect for a production car I am afraid...

’Urallretarded’ (in regards to your earlier post) I couldn’t of said it better my self… and ’mediafosgate’, your so wrong, I spanked a supra about a week ago… I doubt it had much under the hood besides a turbo but still, you talk as if all supra’s are gods and their not… yes their fast, in fact some are faster than SH** but not all of them have six figures sitting under the hood.
As far as this new Supra goes, I’m pre-ordering one as soon as I can, because they’ll stomp wrx’s, skylines, k20 civics, and in my case lt1, lt4, ls1, and the new ls2 Camaros…

I am a little lost and please someone help shed some light.
I found another sight that is completly denying 08 Toyota Supra. In fact, they are stating that the Lexus LF-A will by Toyota’s only supercar. I have called a couple of Toyota Dealerships and they are not even aware of the Supra but would love to discuss the Lexus LF-A.

yo mediafosgate out of all these sukas on this here site i got respect for u cuz wat u said bout the supra is pure facts. thats jus sayin it strait up man the rest of these dead ricers!

all u guys are stupid u think ur guys cars can beat a supra u guys must be tripping how are u gonna compare a civic with a supra is like comparing a rat with a cobra if u guys know alot about cars then u must know what ur up against cause the supra can beat any car stock or tuned

It scares me to think I share the road with people like these...

someone needs to work on their typing or english. i have a jet plane and it can beat a gtr supra and enzo all rolled into one. hey is300 owner where did you do your research? because there has been supra rumors since they stopped the supras. how come they havent brought it back yet? can you go research that? can you also bring back some credible evidence? because i would really like a new supra and i would like to know when it comes out.

Dumb@ss they toyota supra is going to be badge as a toyota because the lexus verison for the sport cars is the lexus is500 coupe which is base around they new toyota supra and the lexus-lfa (Lexus gt 450 rename U.S). so who every was that F@ck..... visitor who posted that comment need to to some research before he post ret@rd

I actually work for Toyota Manufacturing and the original plan was to make the new Supra a Lexus but the company soon realized that without a sports car branded as "Toyota", they wouldnt be able to compete with Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, etc...To make a long story short, it is a Toyota Supra...without an inline straight six.

I have a Nissan Skyline GTR back home and I’m 100% sure mine can beat that Supra cause I’ve beaten all my friends.

This isn’t a supra, toyota has stated this is a new lexus and there are no plans on it being badged a toyota supra

god this thread has a bunch of retards talking about racing cars from different categories. no one is saying that a fixed up civic cant beat a supra!! but what if you tuned the supra? what if you raced a supra stock vs a civic si stock? please dont tell me youd take the civic. oh yeah another thing take this argument to a track where youll actually have to make turns and then well see whose faster? but in the end the dude in the supra can always say that he rolls in a supra and you roll in a fu**ing CIVIC!! congratulations on purchasing a nice entry level coupe!!!

Hey my nig what you talkin about Woopydoo? Hey i’ll race you and own you in whatever you be ridin in you dig. Try and stand up to my Evo and we see who the one who will be talkin smack about my car out..
