Toyota’s New Gazoo Supra Reportedly Debuting In Geneva 12

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Gazoo, Geneva Motor Show, Reports, TOYOTA, Toyota Supra on 01 12th, 2018


Toyota have apparently decided to pull the covers off the all-new Supra at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, which starts on March 6 for the press days.

The sports car won’t be sold with Toyota badges, though, as it will be Gazoo branded, AutoExpress reports, citing the man in charge of the sub-brand, Shigeki Tomoyama, who made it clear that “the Supra will be Gazoo”.

It appears that the new Gazoo Supra will arrive in four states of tune, with various power levels, suspension tunes, and equipment. The base model will be known simply as Supra, the mid-range versions will add the GR and GR Sport monikers, respectively, while the range-topper will be baptized as Supra GRMN.

Unlike its brother from another father, the new BMW Z4, which will be sold solely as a convertible, the new Supra will arrive as a fixed-roof coupe, and it needs to appeal to fans of the classic car, according to Tomoyama, who may have hinted one of its rumored powertrains, by saying:

“The new car has to appeal to the existing owners first. The old car had a straight-six engine, twin-turbos, and rear-wheel drive; the new car must have the same philosophy.”

Tomoyama probably refers to the six-cylinder unit that’s believed to develop 335 horses, likely aimed at the United States, among other markets, which is said to be joined by a four-cylinder mill with around 250 horses.

Despite its rumored Geneva Show debut, the Gazoo Supra might not arrive in showrooms until the second half of next year, presumably close to the launch date of the new BMW Z4.

Top Secret’s 943PS Toyota Supra V12 Is Looking For A New Home 17
Dec
Posted by Michael Karkafiris in auction, Classics, TOYOTA, Toyota Supra, tuning on 12 17th, 2017


If you grew up watching ‘Smokey’ Nagata doing all sorts of silly stuff on the road, then you’ll probably recognize this specific Supra; that’s right, this is his personal gold ‘Top Secret’ Toyota Supra powered by a twin-turbo V12.

The man behind the famous tuning shop replaced the original’s 2JZ engine with a V12 from the Toyota Century before going crazy on the mods. After adding twin turbos and nitrous oxide, the V12 Supra puts out a claimed 943PS.

Nagata’s exploits include shipping the car to the UK, where he hit a claimed 197mph (316km/h) on a public highway at night and in the rain, as well as taking it to Nardo in Italy in 2008 for a proper top speed run, with the result being a rather impressive 222.4mph (357.6 km/h).

This Toyota Supra is also wearing a full wide bodykit from Top Secret that makes it 100mm wider than the stock Supra and is supposed to reduce drag at high speeds.

The chance for buying a car with such a history record is without a doubt a rare one and probably will attract the interest from all around the globe when it crosses the auction block on January 12 at the Tokyo Auto Salon.

New Toyota Supra Shows Up In Side Profile Renderings – Yay Or Nay? 12

Posted by Brad Anderson in Renderings, Reports, TOYOTA, Toyota Supra on 12 12th, 2017


Toyota has yet to settle on a name for its impending sports car co-developed with BMW, but one thing that appears to be finalized is the vehicle’s design.

As recent spy shots have shown, the new Supra will essentially be a tamed version of the eye-catching Toyota FT-1 Concept from a few years ago. From the front, this should result in an aggressive stance and large intakes, potentially similar to what some renderings have depicted.

Now, members of the SupraMKV forum have decided to render the car from a different angle, this time showing its side profile. With clear design inspiration coming from the FT-1, it too looks just as promising as the front. Rendered in a range of colors, we can see that the new Supra could feature prominent creases above the front and rear wheel arches and a roofline and side windows similar in shape to the Nissan GT-R.

Looks aside, the next Toyota Supra will reportedly be offered with two different powertrains, the first consisting of a four-cylinder producing roughly 248 hp. Additionally, a more potent six-cylinder version is sure to prove popular among enthusiasts, especially if reports about its 335 hp output turn out to be accurate.

New Toyota Supra Won’t Premiere At Detroit Auto Show 6
Dec
Posted by Brad Anderson in Detroit-Auto-Show, Reports, TOYOTA, Toyota Supra on 12 6th, 2017


While many expected the new-generation Toyota Supra to premiere at January’s Detroit Auto Show, the Japanese company has confirmed that the sports car won’t debut at the event.

Motor Trend recently spoke to Toyota group vice president and general manager of the Toyota division in North America, Jack Hollis, and discovered that it is too soon for the company to think about unveiling the Supra. In fact, Toyota has yet to finalize the vehicle’s specifications.

The release date for the new car isn’t the only thing up in the air. Late last week, Hollis actually revealed that there is a selection of other names in contention and that some of the other names are “really pretty strong.” According to Hollis, a decision on what to call the car won’t be made until next year.

While many enthusiasts would probably like to see the Supra name return, the vehicle’s success won’t be based on its name but rather the performance it provides. If it doesn’t live up to the hype and fails to capture the imagination of the younger generation, Toyota may soon regret ever creating the sports car.

As you’ll certainly know by now, the new Supra has been co-developed with BMW and will reportedly be offered with two different engines. The first, expected to be a four-cylinder with roughly 248 hp will be the cheapest option. Additionally, a six-cylinder delivering 335 hp is widely expected to be made available to customers in the United States.

The Next Toyota Supra Might Not Even Be Called ‘Supra’ 1

Posted by Brad Anderson in Reports, TOYOTA, Toyota Supra on 12 1st, 2017


We know that a next-generation Toyota Supra is edging closer to becoming a reality but according to the Japanese automaker, the sports car may not even be dubbed the ‘Supra’.

While at the LA Auto Show, group vice president and general manager of Toyota, Jack Hollis, revealed that the Supra name isn’t set in stone for the new vehicle.

“Yes, we have other ideas, and yes, the Supra name is in consideration.

“I think that there is some discussion because the heritage of Supra is so strong. The name decision will not be made until next year as well. There are some other candidates for some other reasons that are really pretty strong,” Hollis revealed to Auto Guide.

Hollis’s statements perhaps indicate that Toyota has some trepidations about using the Supra name for its new sports car, just in case it fails to live up to its predecessor.

Nevertheless, Hollis did say that the Supra name is a “leading candidate” and reiterated what we already suspected, the release date of the new sports car remains undetermined.

According to Hollis, Toyota has yet to even settle on a two-to-three-month window to unveil the car but did confirm that more information about the vehicle will be released in 2018.

2019 Toyota Supra Tries On A Slew Of Colors 20

The launch of the next-generation Toyota Supra has been one of the most discussed topics in the industry this year. With just over a month left before the end of 2017, it doesn’t appear as if we’ll even see the new sports car until next year.

Nonetheless, a number of enthusiasts have rendered the car in recent months, using a plethora of spy shots and the Toyota FT-1 Concept as inspiration. These latest renderings, created by members of the SupraMKV forums, show the new Supra in a range of colors. It looks impressive in every single one of them.

With the exclusion of an additional front splitter, the Supra depicted in these renderings is identical to ones we saw last month. As such, the images depict the car with simple LED headlights and a bumper and front fascia which compared to the FT-1, doesn’t protrude out to the same degree. In essence, the car has had a nose job.

According to our sources, the new Supra will be available with a four-cylinder engine delivering 248 hp and a six-cylinder producing around 335 hp.

This Is The Cheapest MKIV Toyota Supra In The U.S. 16
Nov
Posted by Brad Anderson in TOYOTA, Toyota Supra, Toyota Videos, video on 11 16th, 2017


What you’re looking at is one of the cheapest fourth-generation Toyota Supras in the United States and no, it isn’t as fast as you may expect.

YouTuber Tavarish purchased the white and red Japanese sports car earlier this month for a cool $23,000. Incredibly, that price was for an example fitted with the naturally-aspirated 2JZ engine, not the desirable twin-turbo 2JZ that has gone down in automotive folklore.

In the last decade, fourth-generation Supra prices have climbed drastically, even for entry-level variants. Consequently, the Supra is no longer a performance car bargain but that doesn’t mean it’s any less impressive than it was when new.

Beyond its rather questionable bodywork, Tavarish’s Supra did come with some desirable modifications, namely a new rear spoiler and the bigger brake kit from the twin-turbo Supra.

Would we pay $23,000 for a Supra like this? Probably not, but it’s clear many enthusiasts would.

Driving The Honda NSX, Toyota Supra And Mazda RX-7 Back-To-Back 11

Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, many of Japan’s leading automakers built world-beating sports cars that were exceptionally fast, bewilderingly agile and in many ways, ahead of their European and American rivals.

Of all the iconic Japanese sports cars of the time, the first-generation Honda NSX, FD Mazda RX-7 and A80 Toyota Supra are among the most beloved. One fortunate YouTuber had the chance to jump behind the wheel of all three.

Despite all coming from Japan at roughly the same time, the Supra, NSX and RX-7 are all quite different from each other. Whereas the Supra is a straight-line warrior, the RX-7 is a more nimble and agile sports car powered by a high-revving rotary engine. By comparison, the NSX is the most exotic of the three, the only one that’s naturally-aspirated and the only one with its engine mounted behind passenger compartment.

If money wasn’t an issue and you could only buy one of the three, which would you choose?

New Toyota Supra Sounds Underwhelming In Latest Tests 8

If you’re a Toyota Supra enthusiast, you may want to block your ears for the video below. It is not encouraging.

Late last week, a prototype for the next-generation Supra was filmed accelerating near the streets of the Nurburgring sounding bland and no more exciting than a Toyota Camry or 86.

Later filmed at the German circuit itself, this prototype was even drowned out by the turbo four-cylinder of the Porsche 718 Cayman it was following. If you were hoping the new Supra would come with an engine as exciting as the famed 2JZ, you’ll be sorely disappointed.

According to our sources, not all hope is lost. While a four-cylinder engine with approximately 248 hp will be the most affordable powertrain option for the sports car, a 335 hp six-cylinder should also be made available to customers in the United States. If Toyota takes its duties seriously in developing a replacement to the fourth-gen Supra, it better ensure the inline-six version sounds much better than this prototype.

It remains to be seen when the new Supra will launch but a debut in the first half of 2018 is probable.

2019 Toyota Supra Looks Great In Latest Rendering 6
Nov
Posted by Michael Gauthier in Renderings, TOYOTA, Toyota Supra on 11 6th, 2017


The Toyota Supra is continuing its slow march to production and the SupraMKV Forums have created a new rendering of what the car could look like.

Loosely based on the FT-1 concept, the rendering more closely resembles the production model as forum member Supra93 shortened the car’s wheelbase and “pushed” the hood back. The fenders have also been modified and the rear air intakes have been removed. Other notable changes include larger mirrors and the addition of a central air intake.

The rendering looks pretty impressive but spy photos have shown the production model will be a bit different as the car has been spotted with conventional mirrors, a higher hood, and less dramatic headlights.

Toyota has been tight-lipped about the car but it will be based on the same platform that underpins the upcoming BMW Z4. BMW’s model codes suggested the Supra will be offered with four- and six-cylinder engines and they are rumored to have outputs of up to 335 hp (250 kW). The codes also seemed to imply the model would be offered exclusively with an automatic transmission but an unsubstantiated rumored suggested a manual transmission would be available as well.

Toyota’s Shigeki Tomoyama has also hinted the Supra could be sold under the Gazoo Racing brand as he stated “The Supra will be by Gazoo.”
