Of course, the lack of noise could actually be blamed on another harrowing possibility. That would be the chance that the new Supra will get a four-cylinder power plant that’s mated to electric motors to make it a hybrid
, sort of like the Acura NSX. It would take a hell of a lot of performance prowess and a relatively cheap sticker price to get enthusiasts to accept this mutant. Many fans of the original NSX were left in dismay when they learned about the Acura’s hybrid drivetrain. With high hopes placed on the Supra’s revival
, it would be another letdown to see the Toyota go green. The fact that it approaches the corner quietly and then revs upon exit only makes our hearts sink a bit more.
