This might be the new Toyota Supra
Toyota releases shady pic of a "modern racing concept" for Geneva. New Supra, anyone?
Excellent news, Internet. At next month’s Geneva Motor Show Toyota will reveal a “modern racing concept” that signals its “commitment to bringing its most iconic sports car back to the market”. So in a roundabout kind of way, this gloomy, tightly-cropped teaser image is probably our best look yet at the new Supra. Or at least, a lightly concept-ified version, with a MASSIVE spoiler.
What do we know about the new Supra… Well, Toyota remains tight-lipped on the subject. But we know it’s been co-developed with the next BMW Z4 (as previewed at Pebble Beach last year) and that the pair will share hybrid technology. Rumour has it that alongside conventional powertrains, both BMW and Toyota will deploy petrol-electric versions using BMW’s four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with electric motors on the front axle fed by supercapacitors.
We know too the Supra will wear ‘Gazoo’ badges, just like the impressive Yaris GRMN. It’s Toyota’s performance sub-brand, which after making its name in Japan is going global. Looking forward to seeing, erm, something at Geneva? We are.
