Scott is indeed right that this FT-1 aka Supra is not the BMW/Toyota collaboration, because the FT-1 is not planned to be hybrid, but just normal RWD with normal engine. Toyota might build its own I6.
Thanks for the info. How confident are you that the FT-1 won't be a hybrid? Autoblog makes it sound like an almost certainty that it will.

Also, if this thing has an I6, then it's almost definitely going to be FI, which is a shame. I was really hoping that it would be the baby LFA that the RC-F was not.
