  2. Probably a dumb question, but does a manual shifter have a center return spring (that causes the shifter to spring into the center when you take it out of gear)?
  3. My only guess why the stick was not on display has to do with public interest. There really isn't that much public interest in a manual w/ clutch these days. The least they could put on to maintain that "sportiness" is to have manual w/ paddles, which is what I personally would prefer, if video games were something to say about real-world preferences.
  4. Yeah. I play Forza Horizon 4 for my open-world, off-track and laid-back experience. I have the 370Z in my garage and never even bothered to drive it I would say all of the above, but be sure to include paddle-actuated automatics alongside manuals for Nissan to justify making more Z cars. Like I said, sports cars aren't selling well in the age of the SUV.
  5. Sorry I didn't even think about the 370Z when I was originally compiling the power/weight calculations .
  6. Single twin-scroll turbo. For the 335 hp figure, that's pretty good imo compared to the 2JZ-GTE engine, which had two turbos, and only put out about 305-315 hp. Plus, emissions of the B58 engine is far better than the 2JZ, plus the former is lighter, with aluminum construction, and one turbo means less plumbing for the system, which means the entire assembly is still lighter. Also from what I read, Toyota and BMW worked on their cars using the Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform. Toyota claims that they, and BMW were not in contact with each other for four years since they picked out the mechanical parts, well before the reveal yesterday, and still tuned it, modified it, and set it all up to their liking. This is so that the Supra and the Z4 M40i can still be distinctly different from one-another without being a badge-engineered vehicle (look '18 at Holdens and Opels), in spite of using the same architecture and using some of BMW's components. From a financial standpoint, I can see why this made the most sense for Toyota. Designing an engine and a suitable sports car platform is just too expensive, even if they're making bank on their eco-class cars, SUVs, and pickups. The simple fact is that sports car, as fun and exhilarating as they are, don't sell very well, especially if it's a manual. If the Supra was 100% developed by Toyota, on their own platform, and using an inline-6 of their own design, then we're looking at almost 100K (or more) for the base trim. We should all be glad that we're getting a base trim Supra for USD $50K. Plus, the way I see it, the Supra is appropriately targeting Porsche 718 Caymans/Boxsters, Jaguar F-Types (short of the SVR trim), Audi S5 2-door coupe, and other sports cars with similar specs and pricing.
  7. Based on the engine power and weight (362 hp and 1,840 kg). Plus, the E 450 is a 2-door coupé. I forgot to add in the Audi TTS and the S5
  8. 1993 Toyota Supra Turbo: USD $39,900 in 1993 dollars, which would be USD $69,336.81 in 2018 dollars. For base trim, stick, and twin turbo. 2020 Supra is USD $49,990 for base trim, paddles, and single turbo. The car is primarily competing with the Porsche 718 Boxster/Cayman, BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz E 450, Jaguar F-Type R, Lotus Evora 400, Audi TTS and S5 Coupé. Also this isn't some badge engineered car. Badge engineered would mean that they took a BMW Z4 and tacked on the Toyota and Supra logos, change only the front grille, and called it a day. The fact that Toyota went to this level of bodywork design speaks levels of distinction. Toyota may have used some BMW components, yeah, but that doesn't stop them from modifying and tuning said components to their liking. So much I even doubt you can compare the Z4 to the Supra, mechanically speaking. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph, likely for insurance reasons. No doubt it'll go faster (my guess places it at 170 mph, tops) once someone figures out how to disable it. I don't get people sometimes All I ask is to be grateful that this is priced significantly less than the A80 Supra, at launch, and when you factor in inflation because that's how economics work.
  9. Well here's a long read I found in this video. Username is I'mJustFarhan.
  10. True, true. Horsepower numbers are fun and all, but the most important performance metric imo is the power-to-weight ratio (bhp/kg/ton). This determines the acceleration, handling, and braking distance of the vehicle (and possibly top speed, but drag coefficiency must be taken into account for this figure) where raw horsepower alone can only do so much. A lower drag coefficiency also helps with fuel economy and your top speed, and the lower the figure, the better, but this also affects handling unless you bolt on a front and rear wing to make the car corner easily at the expense of top speed and fuel economy. So I decided to do some math and see where the bhp/kg/ton figures stand for the Supra and its nearest competition based on the current base price and performance figures. Decimal placement for bhp/ton is moved three places, and is rounded to the nearest tenth. For bhp/kg, the three numbers from the bhp/ton figure are added to the 0.# figure to make bhp/kg. My take is that Toyota is really trying to compete against the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and BMW, based on the power-to-weight ratio figures and pricing relative to the competition. The USD $49,990 figure is for Toyota's base trim option, and there are more expensive trim levels as well. Where it really falls though is how heavy it really is. At 1,541 kg, its power-to-weight ratio is pretty measly, meaning handling should be decent at best for a sports car. Shave 41 kg or more and it'll accelerate faster, and cover less distance when braking, and it may increase the top speed as well. Plus, I feel as though no one is taking into account inflation from 90's money to today's money. You'd realise that the Supra base trim is priced the same as the A80 Supra from the 90's when you factor in inflation.
  11. Or, you know, make it USD $70K and strap in the 2UR V8 engine, twin turbo it, and call it the 2UR-GTE. 1 Bar of boost from the two turbos and hitting 7,100 RPM for peak power means it'll bust out 700 bhp. This would possibly give the Nissan GT-R and the Lamborghini Aventador (despite the two having AWD as an advantage) some competition. Unless they use carbon fibre, it'll not be able to compete with the McLaren 720S.
