From what I’ve heard, when Nissan commissioned the design of the cylinder heads and block, the design spec specified that it must be able to handle 1,000 horesepower. With the stock configuration putting out 473 horsepower with 11 second quarter mile performance, I can’t wait until someone who “knows what to do with it” gets a hold of that car.

Hopefully Toyota has something lined up that will be just as exciting when the Supra makes a return. If they stick to the normally aspirated route, then they’re just plain stupid.

All hail the new King.
