Toyota Mirai Concept going to Detroit, may preview new Supra image

The Japanese based automaker Toyota is planning to introduce the Mirai Concept car at the 2014 NAIAS, in Detroit, which will open its gates in just a few hours.

The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet but according to the FT 86 Club, the Toyota Mirai Concept will be heading to the 2014 Detroit Motor Show. The model in question is believed to be the much awaited Supra, in a concept form, but no details have been announced on this so far. All we know is that the carmaker is supposedly working on a successor of the popular sports car and such a model has been recently virtually introduced to the new Forza Motorsport video game.

As a small reminder, the Toyota Supra has been produced between 1978 and 2002 and it was assembled in Japan. The model in question was offered as a grand tourer, in a 2+2 fastback coupe body style, with a front engine and a rear-wheel drive layout. The last generation of the car was riding on the A80 platform and it was offered with a 3.0 liter engine under its hood, mated to either a 5-speed manual, a 6-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. The twin turbocharged version of the engine was providing 276 HP and 431 Nm (318 lb-ft) of torque while the naturally aspirated variant was offering 220 HP and 289 Nm (210 lb-ft) of torque.
