Report: Another rumor points to BMW turbo four and supercapacitors for new Supra revival

Another rumor is out from Motoring.com, who claims that the new Toyota Supra successor is set to be revealed in the next few years.

BMW and Toyota’s collaboration isn’t news, but everyone seems to be shooting speculation out of their arses, left and right, and this latest development is not much different. For this report, BMW is alleged to offer a 2.0L TwinPower turbo four-banger with direct injection, mated to a gearbox also supplied by Munich’s finest, which isn’t entirely accurate since all of the transmissions are sourced either from Getrag or ZF–and they’re their own entity, separate from BMW.

Toyota is also rumored to be researching and developing supercapacitor technology and such tech could be applied to the Supra successor, allowing for plug-in hybrid capability for a combined output of around 350hp. Rumors point to BMW-supplied electric motors developed by Toyota, with two mounted up front and a third motor at the rear for an all-wheel drive setup. Also expected a dual-clutch automatic from Getrag–not BMW themselves.
