i doubt it...the current supra has a signifcantly shorter wheel base compared to the current m2. Most manufacturers do not shrink cars with the newer models..its usually the opposite. They usually get larger by a .5-3inch.

it would make more sense just to keep the current M2 platform and just extend the wheel base by .5inch, maybe add some more high tensile steel to reduce weight and increase ragidity. The B58 already fits in the current platform..i'm sure it wouldnt take much to fit a s58 into it if they wanted too.
