The most common grip of the fifth-generation Supra is not a lack of power, but the lack of a manual transmission. It’s a bit strange, but I still welcome that our other prayers for an even faster Supra can be answered soon. The Japanese-language publication Best car web site reports (first highlighted by engine1) that the long-rumored Toyota Supra GRMN will get the new M3’s two-cylinder with two turbo S58, good for 510 horsepower.
The first is first – yes, you should take this potential update with a grain of salt, as what all anonymous reported reports may prove to be false. But Best car web site has been a consistent source of reports on the Supra GRMN, and other calls made as the next generation Toyota Land Cruiser dropping the V8 have proven to be true in our own reporting.
The S58 is currently in BMW̵
As for the transmission options, it is reported that BMW’s 7-speed DCT will be the only option. Probably it was tough to talk BMW to hand over its dual clutch automatically, but it eventually worked out. Why Toyota goes with an automatic automatic despite the enthusiast’s social debt for a manual, we are not sure.
It is especially rare that Toyota did not stick with a stick considering a.) M3 and M4 will offer one and b.) Probably it will only make 200 of these hot Supras. If you are going to create 200 special cars to sell for what we assume will be a very high premium, why not – you know what? There is apparently no profit with this manual transmission issue. We should all just move on.
Another strange fact is that – as we all know – the Supra and Z4 are roughly the same cars, convertible roofs and springs set aside. Nevertheless, the Z4 will not receive the S58 treatment. So no, there will probably be no Z4M.
Best car web site also says that there will be no new Supra after production ends for the current generation of 2025. So if you like the new Supra, the good ol ‘days are now. Get one while you can.
