Toyota Supra comes back into focus

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 4, 2012

After the Lexus LFA became a one-of-a-kind supercar and after we saw that the GT86 is a special car it’s time to focus on another sports car that it appears to be back on the drawing board: the Supra. Yes, the Toyota Supra will be revived after all and after it made some history is ready to come again to shake a little bit the Nissan GT-R and the upcoming Honda NSX.

We all know that the financial crisis stopped the Toyota FT-HS Concept becoming a production sports car but it seems that Japanese manufacturer is ready to hit the market. According to MotorTrend, the next Supra will use the same chassis as the GRMN (Gazoo Racing Meister of Nurburgring – named after expert Hiromu Naruse, who died when driving a prototype of the Lexus LFA) MRS prototype, which has already undergone testing at Fuji Speedway.

The new Toyota Supra (we’ll call it Supra but it seems that the new car will not carry the same name) is going to carry an all-wheel-drive system and generate over 400 hp (Toyota should take a look at the Nissan GT-R and its 545 hp). The vehicle is rumored to carry a mid-engine-mounted, 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to a CVT taken from the Lexus RX, tuned in order to obtain some impressive performances.
