Supra - Z5 Differences?

So this is almost like the twins (86 - BRZ) but obviously there are a lot more differences.

The front end of the Supra is longer than the Z5 but the rear end is shorter than the Z5

Obviously there are aesthetic differences

The Supra is shown as a hardtop only so far, and the Z5 is a drop-top soft top

What else is there?

I have been long awaiting this..

Powertrains should be different which will play right into how they want to divide the two models. BMW alone has a major advantage since for all we know they'll pull from the 4-series, much like the M-Coupe and 3-series back in the day

I really don't think Toyota has anything "interesting" to put into the Supra at the moment do they?

They have been reportedly working on performance hybrid setups, and that has been largely flooding the net on what will make it to the supra. Aside from that, there's nothing else to my knowledge.

Not too interested in that to be honest, more-so looking to hear what type of full ICE they have going on.

Read around a little bit and people are saying that it'll use the V6 from the 2018 Lexus LS that produces 400hp

Overall once it meets the power requirements we'll be happy.
With a lot of new Lexus and Toyota models coming to market so soon, odds are this engine was developed with multiple models in mind. Regardless of what it is, we're in the clear.

Other sources are saying it'll be a hybrid engine whilst BMW confirmed their Z(x) will have a straight six in it .

If some are saying it will be one or the other, then they might be wrong because odds are they will offer a couple engine options. Just one powertrain might not do it. That's if they want to aim for mass appeal on all levels, price being right at the top of that.
