Those who pay close attention to Toyota know that the automaker currently has several new sports cars in its orbit. Its luxury arm recently created a fresh supercar while its child brand revealed a rear-wheel drive sports coupe. Now, only one question remains. Will Toyota release anything itself?
Though company officials haven't confirmed anything for sure, Toyota Marin has good reason to believe that a successor to the Toyota Supra might be in the works. For years now, the Japanese automaker has toyed around with the idea of introducing a new auto that would replace the extinct model in the sports car sector. As a matter of fact, Toyota even went as far as to create the FT-HS concept with an advanced hybrid powertrain. Until now, however, the production light has remained yellow.
What makes Toyota Marin think the automaker is finally ready to press "GO"? For one, the CEO himself is a huge fan of the idea. Akio Toyoda is not only enthusiastic about a Supra successor but was a strong supporter of the brand luxury arm's LFA supercar. With a persistent push from the top and a strengthening economy, enthusiasts in the San Rafeal area could be seeing a new Toyota sports car conceptualized very soon. Auto experts are already drawing up potential images and believe the auto-in-question will take an edgier, sharper stance.
