In recent times much has been said of a possible return of the Toyota Supra. The iconic sports would after nearly 15 years of standstill and with a concept somewhat different from the one that was. Rumors indicate that the new model would be developed in conjunction with BMW, so it would be similar to the upcoming BMW Z5. What is clear is that every time is closer and even Toyota has registered this name for Europe.

a couple of years Ago that Toyota traced the term ‘Supra’ in the united States, but it seems that the past 3 of June it registered in the European Union Intellectual Property Office, or what is the same, the intellectual property office, european. This means that the japanese brand is serious and that we could see a fifth generation of the model. It would take as the basis of the Toyota FT-1 Concept, presented at the Detroit motor show 2014.

Back to the topic, the new Supra and the next Z5 were being developed in common by both mark and could reach for the year 2018. Your presentation would be scheduled for a bit earlier, like early to mid next year. Their production would take place in the factory of Magna Steyr (Austria), which would make a 60,000 units a year, adding the two vehicles.

Although both share platform, we can expect that his outside is completely different. This will not happen with your range of engines, which probably will be the same and proceed in the German brand. We would find some mechanical turbo four-and six-cylinders, as well as a hybrid variant sports, for the Toyota Supra. Serial the traction would be back, but optionally would be offered all-wheel drive. It will still wait for official confirmation, but sure we all entusiasmaría the back of the Supra.
