2019 Toyota Supra: Specs leak offers an inside look


A parts catalogue posted on Supra MKV forums has revealed details about the spec of Toyota’s upcoming sports coupe.

The catalogue, which appears to be a BMW internal document, shows just how heavily Toyota has leant on its German development partner in the Supra’s cabin.

Before we get into that, though, the engines: on BMW’s documentation, the car is listed in 20i, 30i and 40i guises. In the Z4, the 20i/30i are powered by a four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine making 145kW/320Nm and 190kW/400Nm respectively.

The M40i pumps out 250kW and 500Nm in the Z4, with those bigger outputs coming from a 3.0-litre displacement and six inline cylinders. No manual is listed on the BMW specification document, with the only transmission an automatic with the code GA8HP51Z, likely an eight-speed ZF unit.

According to the forum leaks, engines aren’t the only things the Supra will share with the Z4, and the wider BMW line-up for that matter.

For one, the steering wheel, column stalks, seat controls and gearshift will all be familiar to people who’ve driven a BMW over the past, say, five years. It’s a similar story with bits and pieces like the door locks and handles, electric parking brake and window switches.
