Well it looks like we have some solid confirmation that the bonkers Toyota FT-1 Concept is actually going to be the next Supra . Yes, every person in the entire world has said that the FT-1 is the next Supra already, but that was all speculation, conjecture and plain old rumor mongering. What we have now is much more solid proof that the folks at Toyota are turning their drop-dead sexy coupe concept into the next Japanese supercar .
The confirmation comes from a man named Peter Lyon. If you are unfamiliar with his name, I am sure you have probably read his work at some point. He is a journalist living in Tokyo who specializes in the Japanese Auto Industry. He has had his work published in MotorTrend, Autocar, Evo and many more. If anyone has connections at Toyota , it is this guy.
According to a source “close to Toyota” the next Supra is a go, and it is well into production. The current target is a 2016 release.
Beyond confirming that the Supra is really coming, Lyon gives drivetrain details.
Read on to hear what he has to say, and hear our take on it as well.
