REPORT: New Toyota Supra slated for October unveiling in Tokyo

27.01.2017

Spied undergoing testing in recent months but with little information being known so far, a new report has suggested that the much hyped about Toyota Supra could make its official unveiling at Tokyo Motor Show in October.

Citing Japanese media, US magazine Car and Driver claims that the new age generation of Toyota's iconic sports coupe will borrow heavily from the 2014 FT-1 Concept in the styling department, with the final design being a collaboration between the marque's headquarters in Toyota City and Calty Studio in California.

The result of a collaboration between Toyota and BMW, whose new model will likely carry the Z5 moniker, engine options for the Supra will reportedly consist of a Toyota build 2.0-litre turbo with 190 kW, and a 3.0-litre turbo V6 with 254 kW. A 2.5-litre hybrid will join the range at a later stage with the only transmission mulled being a eight-speed automatic.

BMW has meanwhile stated that the Z5 will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September with a range of in-house developed four and six-cylinder turbo engines.
