Toyota Supra replacement going to Tokyo Motor Show image

After more than 20 years of production, the popular Toyota Supra is close to getting a replacement and rumors are that the Japanese automaker will present the new generation at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show.

Being definitely one of the most expected cars to attend the Japanese automotive event, the new Toyota Supra will be standing beside the special edition of the Lexus LFA, which is expected to get a carbon fiber roof, rear spoiler and other touches which will differentiate it from the version currently found on the streets.

Even if the replacement of the popular Supra will be hitting the Tokyo Motor Show in Concept form, rumors say that the production version will make its official appearance sometimes in 2014, but nothing is known yet about its performance or powertrains.

As a reminder, the Supra was a sports car developed by Toyota Motor Company from 1979 to 2002, its styling being inspired from the Celica. The Japanese automaker ceased sales of the Supra in United States back in 1998 and four years later the production has been stopped in Japan.

The Supra is one of the most iconic sports cars out there, appearing in numerous video games, movies, music videos and TV shows, like the Gran Turismo, Forza Motorsport, The Fast and the Furious, Midnight Club and Need for Speed.
