The Toyota Supra is back

 

The Toyota Supra Is Back


We knew for some time that Toyota was developing a new sports car in partnership with BMW, but at this year's Geneva Motor Show, the good news was confirmed. The car will wear the Supra name, and hopefully, carry on a long tradition of rear-wheel drive, straight-six powered sports cars.

 

But while Toyota confirmed it was bringing the Supra back, there are still a lot of unknowns. Toyota didn't actually show the Supra at Geneva—it showed the GR Supra Racing Concept, a race car that previewed the eventual street car. So here, we've compiled what we know about the 2019 Supra, plus some of the more credible rumors we've heard.

 

 

Toyota announced that a camouflaged version of the Supra will be displayed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this week. Both chief engineer Tetsuya Tada and Toyota master driver Herwig Daenens will drive the car up the Festival of Speed's famous hillclimb. This will actually be our first official look at the new Supra street car, as all we've seen so far is the GR Supra Racing Concept, which is more-or-less a GTE spec race car.

 

It's Being Co-Developed With BMW

The production Supra will be the result of a BMW-Toyota collaboration first announced in 2012. The two companies are working together on engines and lithium-ion batteries, and a new rear-wheel-drive platform.
