Toyota Unveiling The Supra Concept This October



Held from the end of October to November each year, the Tokyo Motor Show normally sees more concept cars than production ones and this year will be no different. For 2017, Toyota plans to debut the Supra concept model at the Tokyo show alongside the S-FR and Corolla GTI concepts.


Car And Driver
found the debut date in Japanese publication Best Car, and claims that the new Supra will take design elements from the FT-1 concept that was unveiled back in 2014. As seen from the above rendering of what the Supra concept could look like, its styling hints strongly of the FT-1, especially that hood which curves into a beak. Perhaps the A-pillars will remain pulled back for better vision when going into corners.

Toyota’s headquarters in Toyota City will collaborate with the company’s California Calty studio to produce the final Supra design, but it’ll used the rear-wheel-drive platform co-developed with BMW.

We still have no word about its powertrain however, it is speculated to be initially released with two turbo options and a hybrid variant later on. The base model may be powered by a 255 hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four and one step up could be a 340-hp turbo 3.0-liter V-6 engine paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Later down the line, Toyota may release a 2.5-liter hybrid version a year after the Supra’s launch.

Officially open to the public on October 27th, we may see the Supra debut before then on press day.
