Toyota Supra Successor gets the green light



Toyota Supra Successor Back in the Pipeline - Motor Trend

All-Wheel-Drive, 400-Horsepower Hybrid Expected, could be on showroom floors by late 2015 for less than $60,000.

Quote:
the new sports coupe (it's unlikely to be called Supra) would employ an all-wheel-drive system and generate upwards of 400 horsepower. The car is rumored to feature a mid-engine-mounted, 3.5-liter V-6 hybrid setup mated to a CVT lifted from the new Lexus RX, but tuned for higher performance.

Dissappointed!

Instead of a hybrid motor,why not just stick with the tried,true and legendary 2JZ & Getrag 6 speed.

So they're gonna rebuild a supra? No need to advance in technology? The 2JZ is a great motor, I have one, but its so crappy on gas.

I strongly doubt that any 15 year old motor is the model of efficiency. Same reason the m3 doesn't still use the s14. While one of the most amazing engines ever produced for its time, the new m3 engine is more powerful, reliable and environmentally friendly.

Nobody buys a Supra and expects great gas mileage,the Supra was not designed for that purpose,that's what the Toyota hybrid line is for.

Toyota can surely advance the 2JZ if they wanted to,they have the means to do so.

I like everything about the car except for the CVT. At least give us a dual clutch automatic for a sports car!

But if they actually make this then Toyota is on a roll lately.

The edges and sharp angles you see in the attached illustration at top are how one artist interprets the direction Toyota is believed to be heading with its new sports car.
Meh, this has been done like fifty times since the spy shots of a "next-gen Supra" turned out to be the LFA.

Hybrid, not RWD, not called a Supra; so yeah, not a Supra. ~400hp is interesting though.

If I can't add a few bolt-ons and have a 1,000HP daily driver fully street legal car, then it's not a real Supra.

thank god. if this pans out, its gonna need to be ALOT different to be called a "supra successor"

IMO, its gonna need to compete with the GTR, be RWD and alot less ugly then the current drawing. that pic looks more like a newer mr-2
