People are talking about a successor for the legendary Toyota Supra for quite some time now. That car has been up and down for so many times that we have lost count! And now, new rumors suggest that the car is back in the pipeline and that it could arrive in showrooms by late 2015 for less than $60,000.

The new model, unlikely to carry the Supra name, will take its design inspiration from the 2008 FT-HS concept and will be built on the chassis of the GRMN MRS prototype. It is believed it will adapt an all-wheel-drive system and will generate about 400 HP. This will be possible thanks to a 3.5 liter V6 engine driving the rear wheels combined with in-wheel electric motors for the front ones. The engine will be mated to a CVT lifted from the new Lexus RX, but tuned for higher performance.

If build the new Supra will be the third sports car in Toyota’s line-up next to the GT 86 and the Lexus LF-A.

Hybrid or not, this successor should better be worth of our anticipation.

With that great look, it already looked so powerful.

Well, it could be still powerful even if it isn’t hybrid.

It’s good if the Supra is on Hybrid but if not, they have to find another way to go with the trend.

Of course, I’m hoping for its variants too.

I guess they made a right plan and I’m excited to see what a Hybrid can offer as a successor of Toyota Supra.

Isn’t it great? Hybrid is a lot more powerful.

I’m actually more concerned on how it would look. No doubt Toyota will make this powerful, but I have been questioning their styling.

I think Toyota would be a great hybrid car producer. I know they’re dynamically inclined, so I could expect it to be a lot powerful than any of their productions.

It’s better if it would be hybrid; we need more hybrid cars. With Toyota, a lot would probably be convinced to consume it.

I believe that these people are wrong. Making it hybrid would be more ideal and advantageous because of its double powering.

This supposedly successor won’t outdo its predecessor, unless it gets an extravagant debut.

It’s only natural for a successor to be better than its predecessor but from what I see here, it’s not going to make much difference even if it’s a hybrid.

Why won’t Toyota choose only the best for this said successor? Wouldn’t it be awesome if they’re able to apply what they have been working for lately?

If that’s true, then it’s clear that they won’t be using the latest components on it. 3.5-liter V6 engine, really? Anyway, I think 400HP is already oozing of force.
