The successor of the iconic Toyota Supra is expected to make its way onto the market by 2017 and the model will use a hybrid power system.
After it has been officially confirmed for production just a few months ago by the Japanese based automaker, the replacement for the iconic Toyota Supra is ending up in our news once again, this time with new details emerging on it. According to the guys at Motor Trend, the future Toyota Supra will make its way onto the market by the end of 2017 and, after we initially knew that it will be co-developed with Tesla, it seems that it will be born after a tie-up with BMW.
Our source is also saying that the new Toyota Supra will ride on a revised version of the platform used on the GT 86 sports car and it will come with a suspension tuned by BMW. Under the hood we will find a 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine, mated to an electric motor, which will produce a total output of approximately 400 BHP (298 kW). A larger 3.5 liter hybridized V6 is also expected to make its way onto the market. Additional details on the final production version of the Toyota Supra remain unknown for the moment.
