I was at a track day this weekend, Auto Club Speedway, saw 4-5 Supras running, they were fast on the straights, it sure looks like again the published 335 hp is underrated, typical BMW specs, maybe closer to the Z4's hp rating.
I've heard from others that the Supra is underrated. That Toyota substantially increased the hp rating for this model year makes me think there was plenty of power on the table in the first year.

That would make sense. I remember reading articles about dyno tests that showed the Supra producing more power than advertised.

Toyota had no choice. People will expect updates every year for the next 7 years.
