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.
The Xperia XZ2 looks like a well-built phone, it's thicker than recent Xperia flagships for example, and that shines through in the latest durability test by JerryRigEverything. The phone passes with flying colours, particularly in the bend test which shows hardly any flex under pressure. Check out the video below.
Canon's mirrorless camera efforts have been somewhat lukewarm where the company has typically launched entry-level models in a market that appears to be largely dominated by the likes of Sony. However the company has recently hinted that a high-end mirrorless could be in the works, corroborating some of the rumors we've heard.
Now according to the folks at Canon Rumors, they have heard from a source that Canon's development of their high-end full-frame mirrorless camera is progressing nicely, and that the camera is said to have already found its way into the hands of select Canon professional photographers for testing.
Forget all of those DxOMark Mobile scores, it's time to talk about "real" cameras again. DxOMark just completed their review of the Nikon D850 and, not entirely surprising, it is officially the best camera DxOMark has ever tested. In fact, it's the first camera ever to reach a score of 100, pushing the Sony a7R II into second place with its score of 98.
As it stands now, the camera rankings put the Nikon D850 and its predecessor, the D810, in the number 1 and 3 spots.
