The tremendous amount of publicity being showered on the Vision Gran Turismo concepts are well deserved. After all, it’s not everyday that you see automakers from all over the world sign up for such an unprecedented project of designing video game exclusive concept vehicles.
Excluding what has already been unveiled — the BMW and Mercedes concepts — some of the other brands participating in the project have provided teasers of their own through Sony, preparing us for what will eventually be an onslaught of concept awesomeness.
Yesterday, Toyota added its name to that hat, releasing a shadowy teaser of its Vision Gran Turismo Concept , featuring a pretty sick silhouette that comes with a huge rear spoiler, a sweeping hood, a long-flung roof, and what we imagine to be a car riding pretty close to the ground.
Toyota has given no indication on when it plans to reveal its Vision Gran Turismo Concept. But since we like speculating on these things, we’re hoping to see Toyota follow Mercedes’ route when it revealed its own concept at the LA Auto Show .
And wouldn’t you know it, the North American International Auto Show is a little over a month away from opening its doors. What better way to steal the show than the to bring this concept and the reborn Supra, right?

The Toyota Supra was a sports car that ended up being a victim of restrictive emission standards back in 2002. But now that huge steps have been made in addressing that issue, the Supra is primed and ready for a return.
The last-generation Supra was powered by a turbocharged engine with an output of 320 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 315 pound-feet of torque, but don’t expect the same to happen with the next-generation Supra.The best bet would be a turbocharged 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that will be outfitted with a hybrid system, with an output of somewhere in the 280 horsepower.
