Supra range ex­pan­sion

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

A Toy­ota Supra range ex­pan­sion is be­ing planned, po­ten­tially bring­ing lighter, faster, cheaper and more en­gag­ing vari­ants. Toy­ota engi­neers are look­ing at ways to de­liver more of what en­thu­si­asts are beg­ging for. “Ev­ery­thing is still open. For ex­am­ple, trans­mis­sion; we are study­ing a man­ual trans­mis­sion. A big­ger en­gine, or a smaller en­gine, lighter ver­sion, track edi­tion – this is all now on­go­ing,” the Supra’s as­sis­tant chief en­gi­neer, Masayuki Kai, told Wheels. A Ga­zoo Rac­ing ver­sion could po­ten­tially slice 100kg off the circa 1500kg kerb weight of the reg­u­lar model.
