Talk about a successor to the extremely popular Toyota Supra has been ongoing for literally years. In fact, Toyota debuted the FT-HS Concept was back in 2007 believed to be showcasing a next-generation Supra at the time. However, the world economy soon slipped and the project was put on the backburner.
However, when the Autoblog team was recently spoke with some members from Toyota’s development team, they were told that a brand new Toyota Supra concept car is set to stun at the upcoming Detroit Motor Show 2014 in January next year. Other than this suggestion, nothing else is known about a possible new Toyota Supra sports car.
However, with Honda set to bring its stunning NSX concept to the production line by 2015, Toyota has an excellent chance to create a new sports car to compete with it. After all, Toyota already has the affordable sports car market locked out with its GT86, so a more powerful car, possibly producing over 400 hp is very possible.
While Toyota’s PR team has refused to comment further on the possibility of a next-generation Toyota Supra, we shouldn’t have to wait too long with Detroit just around the corner. If a new Supra does appear, expect it to reach the production line soon after.
