Teased with More Possibilities of the Supras Return

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onJune 6th, 2016


News about Toyota and BMW’s partnership to create a new sports car is nothing new. To share in development costs, the two major manufacturers are sharing their development dollars in designing and producing a new platform which will underpin BMW’s Z4 and Toyota’s unnamed sportscar which we all think will be the next Supra.

Although powertrain details have not yet been shared, there’s a lot of buzz around Toyota moving towards hybrid power. The future powertrain could feature a complex hybrid system combining a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine sourced from BMW with a trio of electric motors.

Although news has been quiet for a while on any new developments of the Supra, there have been some small ticks of action happening that is leading us to think something might be coming soon. Toyota recently trademarked the name Supra in Europe for use on any vehicle. The automaker took similar steps back in 2014 in the US. So that can only mean that Toyota will want to revive the Supra name at some point for their own use.
