2018 Toyota Supra: Can You Identify The Powertrain By Sound

By  | 

Earlier we heard about a video that showed the next generation of the Toyota Supra in tests out on public roads. You can check it out right at the end of this article.

The video did excite many people when they found out that the Toyota Supra is coming our way and of course the one thing that many people wanted to know is what engine is coming with it. So as we could hear it in the video we asked people if they could identify the engine by the sound.

Now a reader has come up with a suggestion and he said that the Toyota Supra may have a hybrid setup. He said that the sound of the engine could mean that it runs on a V6 unit and it has similarities with the Nissan GT-R. He pointed out that at the end of the video you could hear a reving sound and when that ends you can hear a whirring sound and this gives a hint that it may be electric motors.

If the above is true then we may see the Toyota Supra have the Lexus twin turbocharged V6 engine along with two electric motors and this is what all the rumors pointed to.
