When I first heard about Toyota planning to release the successor to the Supra, I was a little skeptical. Rewind back to 2008, when the global economic was gripped with a financial crisis; many automakers were in debt, planned models were put on hold or totally scrapped and some automakers decided to retire certain models and focus on more popular, sellable ones.
But it seems that everything is going well with Toyota, judging from the rendered images of the new Toyota Supra. Even though it is still in conceptual form, every JDM fan (including me) wants to see it in production.
Toyota recently announced that a new Toyota Supra is in the making. A production version is even being speculated for market entry in 2014. Toyota is keeping plans under very tight wraps for the moment though, so we’ll have to wait and see for definite confirmation.
The design features various styling cues that hint towards the upcoming Toyota FT-86. There’s an aggressive duckbill front end which leaps forward like a traditional two-door sports car.
At the back, there’s a distinct ‘boxing glove’ look which provides both swollen and aggressive appeal, like the last generation Toyota Supra. A rear spoiler is also moulded into the panel contours, as are gaping vents below LED taillights.
Toyota plans to reveal a conceptual version during the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show in November, alongside the production versions of the Toyota FT-86 and Subaru BRZ. In other news, Lexus will reveal a special edition Lexus LFA during the same exhibition.
