    The new Supra is faster than your GT350

    Car and Driver test. This thing has to be wildly underrated at 335hp.

    Pulls like a bull! Huge torque at 3K RPM.

    Rough calc puts it at 380whp, so ~420bhp.

    0-60 - isn't that more of the torque converter automatic vs. manual ? automatic is almost always faster off the line? and gearing is much better to 60?
    GT350 is a tie in 1/4 mile, but significantly faster in trap speed.

    I'm not in the market for either but if I had to choose the new Supra or a GT350, it would be the Stand and I've never owned a Ford in my life. For me at least, in this type of car I'm looking for an overall experience and a manual transmission attached to a flat plane crank V8 . . . yes, please! I don't care which turns faster lap times.

    Holy Cow. . . looks like an unexpectedly promising - and relatively affordable - successor to a legendary car.

    Its horsepower may well be underrated, but the price for that kind of performance is pretty darn approachable. I thought they'd be more.
