Leaked file shows 2019 Toyota Supra's engine range
Toyota has been teasing the Supra for quite some time now. At this point, you're probably curious about its engine lineup too. Will it be chasing the Nissan GT-R? Or will it be more of a tame grand tourer? BMW parts catalog TheRealOEM.com showed off key specs of the Supra and, thanks to them, we now have the alleged engine lineup.
Now, don't go heading to TheRealOEM to see it for yourself as the site has taken it down already. Fortunately, there are now screen caps floating around the internet.
The range starts with the 20i, followed by the 30i, and topping the range is the 40i. It's unlikely that Toyota will follow that nomenclature but those familiar with BMW's naming conventions may have picked up some clues from those numbers.
If one were to follow BMW's engine specs, the 20i is a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder motor with 184 PS and 290 Nm of torque. Moving up, the 30i engine and, based on BMW's figures, it makes 265 PS and 400 Nm of torque. Last but not least, the 40i and that packs 390 PS and over 500 Nm of torque. The parts catalog website also showed that there is no manual transmission option, at least for now.
That said, these figures are based on existing BMW engines. There is still a possibility that Toyota will tweak these to put out more power so don't rule out a Supra with more than 400 PS just yet. Compared to the other revived 90's legends however, the Supra is quite a fair way down in terms of power. Even if the Supra could make over 400 PS, the Nissan GT-R has 570 PS while the Honda NSX pumps out 581 PS.
