Twice Tested, The New Toyota Supra Makes More Horsepower Than Listed

Twice tested, the new Toyota Supra makes more horsepower than listed

Two magazines put two 2020 Toyota Supras on two dynos in two parts of the country on two different days. Both magazines came to the same result: Toyota underrated the power figures of the particular Supras being tested. In May, Car and Driver strapped a Supra to an all-wheel drive Dynojet dynamometer in Livernois, Michigan. CD's figures came to 339 horsepower and 427 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. After that, Motor Trend strapped a Supra to a Mustang eddy-current chassis dynamometer in Torrance, California. MT's weather-corrected numbers came to 332 hp and 387 lb-ft.

Toyota's official numbers for the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six cylinder sourced from BMW are 335 hp and 365 lb-ft, measured at the crank. Using the hoary conventional wisdom of driveline and hydraulic losses causing 15 percent of power to evaporate before reaching the wheels, we'd expect the Supra's power at the contact patch to be around 285 hp and 310 lb-ft. Even updating that parasitic loss figure to 10 percent for a modern drivetrain, we're still at around 300 hp and 328 lb-ft.

Fujifilm X-t100 Listed On Adorama, $550-$600 For Body-only

Fujifilm X-T100 Listed On Adorama, $550-$600 For Body-Only

Fujifilm's upcoming mirrorless camera the X-T100 is expected to be announced soon, but it seems that leaks ahead of the announcement have pretty much given everything away. In fact the latest sighting on camera retailer Adorama's website has revealed the potential price of the upcoming camera.

According to the listing (which has since been removed), it seems that the camera could be priced anywhere between $550 to $600 for the body only. This means that you will need to purchase the lens separately, or if you're already a Fujifilm user with a collection of X-series lenses, then you can just buy the camera body only.

Diablo 3 For The Nintendo Switch Listed On Retailer's Website

Diablo 3 For The Nintendo Switch Listed On Retailer's Website

Will they? Won't they? That is the question that some gamers are trying to figure out because according to the rumors, Diablo 3 for the Nintendo Switch is in the works. However Blizzard seemed to have dashed the hopes of many when they said they had nothing to announce regarding Diablo on the Switch.

Despite the somewhat official stance, the rumors have persisted and now according to a listing on retailer Coolshop which is based in the UK, Diablo 3 for the Nintendo Switch has been spotted yet again. Now it is possible that Coolshop is simply listing the game based on the rumors and is trying to get ahead of the competition.

Amazon (Briefly) Listed The Fujifilm X-H1 On Its Website

If the rumors are true, Fujifilm is expected to officially announce the Fujifilm X-H1 mirrorless camera in the next couple of days. We have been hearing about the camera in a steady stream of leaks, with the most recent revealing the possible design of it. However none of this is official yet so there was always the off-chance that it could all be one massive hoax.

However it looks like the rumors have since been corroborated by Amazon, who for a very brief moment actually listed the camera on its website. This was spotted by the folks at Fuji Rumors who were quick enough to snag some screenshots before the page was taken down. The listings were for the X-H1 (body only), the X-H1 with grip, and also the vertical grip accessory for the camera.

Is it the beginning of the end for the Fujifilm X100T? The camera has been listed as discontinued on B&H Photo's website.

The B&H Photo listing shows only the black version of the X100T as discontinued, while the silver version is still available. In contrast, Digital Rev shows the black version as currently available and the silver version as unavailable. Adorama still lists both the black and silver versions available for a discounted $1,099.99.
