Toyota Supra is Coming Back

Toyota Supra
If there’s one yet-to-be-released car that everyone is anticipating (other than the mid-engine Corvette), many are in agreement that it's definitely the upcoming Toyota Supra. The Supra moniker has been off the U.S. market for nearly 15 years now, believe it or not, and enthusiasts everywhere have been asking begging for its return since then.

Toyota appears to be listening intently and the resurrection of its legendary sports car is expected sometime within the next three years. But that’s just a small piece in a much larger puzzle.

BMW is likely involved. The two companies are reportedly working on a platform that will underpin both the new Z5, and a Toyota sports car. There are still some discrepancies surrounding the partnership, though, and some publications are suggesting the final product won’t actually be a Supra, but a small Toyota convertible instead.

It may be a hybrid ... or not. Depending on who are the sources, the envisioned Supra could come with one powertrain or the other. With BMW still in the equation, there’s a possibility that it will have a hybrid setup similar to the i8. Without BMW lending a helping hand, it could opt for a twin-turbo Lexus V6 instead. Both will be powerful, no doubt.
