Toyota Supra revival to be powered by a BMW turbo six?

Another report suggests Toyota\'s version of the co-developed sports car will be larger than that of BMW, but still heavily reliant on BMW-sourced technology.

Rumors surrounding the co-developed sports car from BMW and Toyota have continued to grow, with the latest details focusing on the Japanese automaker's plans for the platform.

Corroborating earlier reports, an unnamed German source has told Car and Driver that Toyota will build a bigger model than the next-gen Z4, powered by a BMW-sourced turbocharged inline-six engine rather than the four-cylinder engine that will likely be found under the hood of BMW's roadster.

Toyota is allegedly planning to revive the Supra nameplate, making the inline-six a suitable choice to maintain consistency with the retired generations. Styling is expected to be inspire by the FT-1 concept car (pictured) that was introduced last year in Detroit.

A report circulating earlier this month dismissed rumors that Toyota would use the platform to replace the GT86 (Scion FR-S). An executive confirmed that it will slot above, with rumors pointing to a price tag around $60,000.

The resurrected Supra is allegedly on track to arrive on the market by 2018.
