The Future Toyota Supra will be a high performance model, which will be launched around 2011 and will have a hybrid version. This engine will be placed up front and it will be powered through the rear wheels. A Prototype of this model should be ready for test engineers at Toyota by the end of this year.

    Will there be a convertible?

  • Rudi says:

    Rumour says there will be both coupe and convertible version of the car, probably introduced at the same time. The convertible is reported to have a folding hard top and is intented to be more of a boutique car than a serious sport car. The coupe, however, will be just that, eqquiped with a 5 liter V8 engine producing 450 hp and 383 lbs-ft of torque.

    Guess we’ll have to wait and see if any of them materialise…
