That’s right. On February 10th, Toyota filed the name “Supra” with the United States Patent and Trademark office, all but spelling out the conformation the sports car is headed back into production. Although Toyota hasn’t admitted it yet, the FT-1 concept seen at the Detroit Auto Show will likely be the staring place for the upcoming Supra. Above is our artist’s rendering of what we expect to see adapted from the original concept.
The newly re-registered Supra name will find itself attached to a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports car that is likely powered by two drivetrains: a turbocharged I-4 in the base model and a 2.5-liter V-6 sporting hybrid technology that generates some 400 horsepower.
There is no official word on when (or technically if) the Supra will make its debut. Pricing is still undetermined, but expect it to fall just above the Scion FR-S ’s $25,000 base MSRP.
