I doubt it though. With everything we've gotten from the few interviews, it feels much more likely to be just a front engine RWD.
Engine-wise, personally, I'm torn between whether id prefer a I6 or a V6. The tech on V6's has come so far these days since its popularity is up now that it's replacing V8s, in some instances. But its design makes it inherently unbalanced. I have a friend that builds engines for Hondas racing teams, and his opinion is that Toyota will go with the I6 since it's a naturally balanced design that doesn't need much to run proper. Also since Toyota probably won't be powering the front wheels they could live with the extra space the I6 takes up vs the V6.
Only time will tell. Regardless of what they use, they'll definitely turn out an amazing machine.
