There is a tiny rumor of Toyota developing a 4L V8 with twin electric turbos for the LC-F.

The SQ7 TDI has it, but that's not exactly accessible and its a damn SUV.

A V8 is usually 90 degrees so a V4 with a 90 degree V would probably be OK. I don't really see any packaging advantage. Disadvantages? More than a few.

honda will do anything, and usually excel so long as it involves a needlessly undersized engine

Or one that you have to rev the living crap out of like that NVH mess that went into the S2000.

As you know, I love me some NVH hot mess 4 cylinder engines.

I like looking down and thinking just for a split second before shifting "damn, its really doing 8500 RPM".

Clearly the S2000 was a raging success--NOT--and a V6 would likely have dramatically increased sales, had much better NVH and torque delivery, and been more "muscley". My experience with the S2000 was that I had to work it too hard to extract the power. A V4 would be a similarly idiotic design to that of the rev-it-to-hell I-4.
