Toyota will create a Supra successor as soon it can, says Tetsuya Tada

Article by Christian A., on November 15, 2012

Toyota will create a successor to the Supra as soon it can, according to Tetsuya Tada, the chief engineer of the GT 86. In a report last September, Toyota is in consideration of a plan to build two additional sports cars to be offered along with the GT 86 (Scion FR-S). Tada said that the GT 86 is the first of three new sports car models to be produced by Toyota.

The bad news is that it would take at least five years before any of them will be available in production form. The successor of the Toyota Supra will be the first one built. Tada told reporters during the launch of the Toyota 86 Experience that the request to make a Supra successor came from no less than president Akio Toyoda.

Toyota has admitted that producing sports cars is “very important” to its strategy. With regards to the lower-end model, Tada declined to confirm whether the successor to the MR2/MR-S will be in the form of a mid-engine or rear-wheel drive sports car. It’s also possible that it will be a convertible.
