Toyota Supra replacement to get 3.5L V6 hybridized engine image

The Japanese based automaker Toyota is planning to develop a successor to the iconic Supra, and the new version is expected to come with a mid-mounted hybridized V6 engine.

Even if there is no official word from the car manufacturer on the new Toyota Supra’s powertrain just yet, rumors are saying that the future sports car will get a mid-mounted 3.5 liter V6 hybridized unit. The replacement for the Toyota Supra will be made on the same chassis as the GRMN MRS prototype and power will come from a 3.5 liter V6 petrol burner and two in-wheel electric motors, which will develop a total output of 400 horsepower. The gas unit will power the rear wheels and the two electric motors will “move” the front wheels, which means that the vehicle will get all-wheel drive.

Besides the future generation of the Toyota Supra getting the 3.5 liter hybridized engine, the sports car is also expected to be powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine, which should generate around 500 HP. The final production version of the Toyota Supra’s successor is expected to hit the market in late 2015 and sell for just less than 60,000 USD. More details on the future Toyota Supra will be announced later on.
