Who cares about top speed? Your never going to go that fast.

Default supra

first off ever heard of a drag strip? you can go pretty fast among using other tracks to get your top speed. as of the quote on the design, every car in this past century does have traits off other cars thats just how design works. just kinda sad that the supra doesnt have a spoiler anymore. Personally the more engine options they have the better chance they have to sell it. I hope they have like 3-4 different models and price ranges for those certain people. I once again untill i see them on the road and in final design like the old ones. i just hope they dont crush this design like the skyline.

Your not going to reach the cars top speed in a quater mile. I know lots about drag racing. And im sure this car will be capable of at least 150 (hp/drag, or so it seems), And its never going to go that fast in a 1/4 mile, Unless you turn it into a 9 sec drag car.

Default supra times

the mxiv supra shows a 5.3 time 0-60. A top speed of 155, and 13.7 seconds on the 1/4 mile. took me a little longer to find some specs but thats what it says. hp is 320@5600 and it has a 325.1 ft-lbs @4800 rpm.

as i stated before you could do a big track also. its not like a drag track, is the only place to test a car. Probably the cheapest but thats about it.

Um if you had a high turbo you could run probably easy 10's with a good tranny n differential setup at the drag track. that right there would be what probably 130+mph or so plus. and you dont have to stop right away i'd say reaching 150 or so on the drag is good enough. To set up a car your can go either way and i'd say a highend car sucks at drags anyways bcuz of the differential. if you want top speed i'd probably recommend a v-10-12, mid-engine and having a good rear-end setting.

as for the new supra specs i have no clue what they are and i guarantee i could probably make a 700hp running supra for the same price. and yes it'd kick its ass in anything. only problem is on todays gas prices how much will i actually drive a car like that? probably pretty little, here and there at the drags. I barely drive my 70 challenger that get like 8 mpg. goes pretty fast tho. on top of that you can get dragsters for pretty cheap, ya i always wanted a streetable car that can go insanely fast.

sadly i havent seen too many new cars i actually love or need. Ya some are nice but none are would make me switch my mind on getting a 32 ford chopped and hot rodded. only a few like a ferrari, lambo etc would make me blink twice about going that way. Most cars after you get in them you might change your mind, i know i have with a lot but the fact remains that many cars are lacking the looks and hp. the new mustangs got the looks but no hp, sure i can super it right away or turbo it but its just not my first choice on having a dragger. i look forward to seeing some more super cars, i heard the dusenberg or w/e suppose to be making a comeback and resembles a lot of the bently contintal. to me its just sad that im starting to like some 4 doors over 2. Bottom line is a 2-door will kick the crap outta a 4 bcuz of its length but the new evo and 300's have me always second looking them.

I just want the new camaro and challenger now. It's gonna be interesting to see how many our bought, im thinking a ton and once again the supra and hondas will have the rarer cars.

I'm just half scared to see what gas prices might get to when no ones putting a cap on it and that over in europe already its close to 10 dollars per gallon. i mean seriously i'd think about riding my pedal bicycle around town then wasting 100 g for 20 mins of fun.

as for the kid that asked about top speed i'd recommend learning about different torque converters and rear-ends before you look up some silly brochure trying to remember specs. took me a lil while myself to understand the differnt gearing off trannys and rear-ends but makes a huge difference in speed for your application.

Default If that's the new Supra,then what is...

I was told a long time ago(I think it was in a magazine) that this 7-speed beast is the new Supra. Or am I wrong? http://sloaninnovations.com/ebay/Toyota-Volca-004.jpg http://www.toyota-supra.info/img/supra-2007.jpg Anybody make the same mistake as me?lol

There seem to have been many different cars/concepts over the last few years that have been touted as a possible "next Supra".
