For the Japanese automaker, it remains a place of his choice cuts GT86 (Scion FR-S) and Lexus LF-A.

The return of the Supra

This space could be occupied by a new sport coupe which, for the occasion, would revive the Supra name, a 2 +2 sport coupe produced between the years 1979 and 2002.

At the time, the Supra was the main rival of cutting Nissan Skyline Japanese soil, which has now become the mighty GT-R.

The popularity of the GT-R and the recognition of his many abilities to compete with the most efficient time sports cuts seem encouraging Toyota to weigh on the head for an accelerated development in the high-performance sports section.
