  • The new Supra is faster than your GT350

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

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

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

        But the thing is, Billy Johnson* just worked with Ford to make the GT350 an even more compelling proposition.

          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.

            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.

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

              Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

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