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.

idk what ur talkin bout woopydoo, but my civic be burn’n skylines and what car do u got woopy? a rust bucket?

hey man heard you guys were talkin about car well i gotta mazda 3 it came with ah turbo you know its completely stock ive almost caught up to 98 supra but it had a twin turbo it was crazy i went to the guy and asked if it was stock and i was like whoah cause i was out noobs haha lol..

wow, you guys are lame! lol! if you’re comparing stock to stock, you’ll lose (depends on what car you’re comparing to. i.e. Enzo > Supra; Civic < Supra). i wouldnt be suprised if a tuned Civic beat a stock Supra.
my point is, you cant compare a fixed up car with a stock car. gotta stay in the same subject/class here buddy.

yea i beat my friends supra with a civic type-r that has an inline 6 engine with a twin turbo. i think it will beat the guy under me

ive beaten my friends twin turbo supra in my Honda Civic Crx but mines fixed up it doesnt really surprise me

i have an Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 9 MR with a stage 3 turbo system and ive beaten many supras will it be able to beat mine?

it would be a lot better if it came with a twin turbo engine to match up with the original

I’m a true enthusiast of the Supra. I own a 1995 TT supra now. I would love to see an improved supra that dominates the 350z in both speed and sexiness.

I am assuming you’ve seen it tested on the track? If you have, please take some pictures for us all to see. Until then stop calling people idiots just because some of us do not believe rumors. Those pics posted above are of the LF-A super Lexus built to compete with the pending GTR and new NSX. There have been Supra rumors ever since they discontinued it.

Funny you people don’t see the actual prototype being tested on the track at Nurburgring.

idiots.

actually ahole stop calling people names if you can’t even use proper grammar or spelling. just because you hear some rumors does not mean its true. RUMORS are RUMORS do you have actual proof other than heresay??? present some concrete evidence and learn some english while youre at it.

actually whipe the new supra is coming out so i ain know where u get ur in info. from cus u ain kno dip ....

I’m sorry to break it to you guys, but it looks like you didn’t check the pics close enough ... The two pics of the car on the track are for Lexus LF-A $150,000.... Look at the rear bumper and exaust setup... Triple exaust, ring a bell? the other three are just plain rumors. You could find a better looking concept supra by googling in images for "supra concept".

You guys are retarded. Yes Toyota is coming out with the Supra. I think the pics floating around out there look way better than Supras of old. I don’t think anyone out there is going to be forking over 75k for a nissan, sorry but don’t see that happening.

its a awsome car im really interested, if you could email me more information about ever thing about the car please. email: garywillcott@

TOYOTECH WHEN THE AUTOSHOW COMES TO TOWN, OR YOUR TOWN, THIS SPRING OR WINTER, OR WHATEVER, TAKE A TRIP AND SEE THE CAR THAT WILL BE IN SHOWROOMS IN OCT. WHAT DEALERSHIP DO YOU WORK FOR? AND WHY HAVEN’T YOU GOTTEN ANY WRITTEN INFROMATION ON THE 2008 SUPRA?

I work for Toyota... I’m a Tech. You are wrong about us knowing anything about a Supra. As far as I know its a concept car. Not comming out. At least not in the US.

alsome good work! it would be really nice of you to e-mail me if there is any thing else on the supra! My E-mail is megafist2004@. thanks a million..

SORRY WHOEVER YOU SPOKE TO AT TOYOTA WAS WRONG THEY MUST WORK IN THE MAIL ROOM. TOYOTA HAS PLANS TO RELEASE THIS CAR IN LATE 2007, OCT OR SO. THEY HAVE BEEN TESTING THE SUSPENION SET UP FOR SOME TIME NOW. ALSO ALL TOYOTA DEALER SHIPS HAVE GOTTEN INFO ON THE NEW CAR BUT CAN NOT RELEASE IT TO THE PUBLIC YET, BECAUSE IT MIGHT HURT SALES OF THE CAMRY SE WHICH THEY WANT TO PUSH UNTIL THE SUPRA’S RETURN. SO I THINK YOU MUST GO BACK AND TALK TO YOUR INSIDE MAN BECAUSE HIS INFROMATION IS ALL WRONG. BY THE WAY TRD IS ALREADY HARD AT WORK.

it look like the 93 to 98 supra has better engine then the 08 supra also the 93 to 98 look more better with body kit and the 08 look like a luckxery car and it look like if u put body kit on it and that its only 4 two person to sit in there..........................
