Jalopnik: Here Is Some Of The New Toyota Supra GT Concept Before You’re Supposed To See It

Setup has begun for the Geneva Motor Show, which opens in four days, and Toyota have rolled in their newest iteration of what we suspect will be the Supra. This car is clearly being shown in race car form, with a Gazoo Racing livery and center-lock wheels and sticky Michelin slick tires. Is it possible Toyota is entering this car in international GT3 regulation racing, or will it be a Japan only Super GT formula? We’ll have to wait and see.

Toyota Supra Spied Up Close Revealing More Details
By Jason Siu

Spy photographers have managed to get up close and personal with the new Toyota Supra.

Unfortunately the Supra is still wearing plenty of camouflage, but this time we get detailed photos of the tail lights that slightly resemble the previous Supra’s units with round housings. It’s still hard to pick out details on the upcoming sports car, but we will finally get the full picture when it bows at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show this October.
Riding on a platform that’s the result of a collaboration between BMW and Toyota, the new Supra will only be offered as a coupe while the BMW Z5 will be a convertible.

It’s still unclear what powertrain Toyota will use on its Supra, but it’s possible the Japanese automaker will turn to BMW’s turbocharged engines. If not, expect to see a turbocharged V6 from Toyota that may be further boosted with electrification.

What It Takes – Formula D Pro 2

An inside look at FD’s farm league via the experience of Dan Burkett as he pursued promotion to the pros in his Mk4 Supra
Feb 7, 2017

“Understand the opportunity.” Formula DRIFT (FD) co-founder and Vice President Ryan Sage spoke these words to the collected hot shoes and team members during the final drivers meeting ahead of tandem eliminations at Round 4 of FD’s 2016 Pro 2 championship. The message was a simple but direct one: grasp the totality of where you are and where you’re headed.

Pro 2 began in 2014 as a bridge into the big leagues – a.k.a. the FD Pro Championship – for pro-am drivers and teams. Currently the feeder series has fewer rounds in a given year than Pro, and the talent in Pro 2 can seem uneven at times (the learning curve is steep), but pound for pound Pro and Pro 2 are very similar beasts. Agreeing to compete in Pro 2 means having an actual racing “program,” one you can pack up and transport to different parts of the continental United States for days at a time. It means having your car in order and being prepared for most eventualities. It means dealing with sponsors, other teams, the sanctioning body, and fans like a mature adult. And most of all, it means figuring out a way to pay for everything.

ADV.1 Wheels’ 1978 Datsun 280Z Has An 800 HP 2JZ

via Engine Swap Depot


ADV.1 Wheels recently unveiled their Project 2ADZ.1 at Festivals of Speed in Miami. The project involved taking a 1978 Datsun 280Z with a 3.4 L 2JZ-GTE and turning it from a quarter-mile monster into a street monster.


The swap was originally preformed by JDV323 (Youtube channel name) and using a C4 automatic transmission with the boost at maximum ran a 8.8 sec @ 162 mph (video embedded below). The engine can produce upwards of 1,000+ horsepower but has been de-tuned to 800 horsepower and 580 lb-ft of torque for street use.


The engine’s displacement was increased by the previous owner to 3.4 L on a balanced and blueprinted block. The engine build included Carrillo pistons, Brian Crower rods and cams, port and polished head, and a Garrett GT42GTX turbocharger.


The transmission was switched from a C4 automatic transmission used for drag racing to a Supra Getrag six-speed manual transmission with a HKS twin disk clutch.

ADV.1 includes more stats of the build including a very large gallery with 168 photos of the car before and after the transformation.
