PostHeaderIcon New Sports Cars Could Take The Tokyo Motor Show By Storm

Just as news is coming out that nine major automakers are skipping the Frankfurt Motor Show, there appears to be growing rumblings that the Tokyo Motor Show will play to not one, not two, but three sports car debuts. It’s already been rumored that the return of the Toyota Supra will take place in Tokyo, but according to Autobild, the Supra will also be joined by the Mazda RX-9 and the Nissan 390Z.

Obviously, this is pretty big news seeing three separate automakers launch three separate performance cars. They may be different in presentation, but the fact that all three automakers – major ones at that – are going to present sports cars that could turn into rivals of the others is making the Tokyo Motor Show a must-see event. To be clear, though, neither Mazda nor Nissan have confirmed their plans for their local auto show. Likewise, we’ve heard very little about the RX-9 at this point and even less about the Nissan 390Z. If these two cars do show up in Tokyo, it’s going to catch a lot of people off-guard. Even Toyota hasn’t confirmed its plans for Tokyo, even though all signs point to its next sports car making its world debut at the event. It might be best to taper off the excitement for the time being, or at least until we know something more concrete. That said, it is tempting to get a little excited about the possibility of three Japanese sports cars all showing up and debuting in the same event. And they said those days were gone.

PostHeaderIcon Next Toyota Supra Engines Leaked; No Manual Transmission

The highly-anticipated, next-generation Toyota Supra is still a few months away from breaking cover, but a leaked, internal BMW document just revealed what engines it will use. Posted by the folks over at the Supramkv forums, the document confirms that the Supra will get the same three engines as the upcoming Z4. The lineup will consist of a four-cylinder unit with two power ratings and a more powerful six-cylinder mill for the range-topping model. These engines carry the familiar x0i nomenclature seen on BMW models. Specifically, the four-cylinders are dubbed 20i and 30i, while the six-cylinder is codenamed the 40i.

The document also confirms that the Supra will go on sale in both Europe and the United States. In Europe, it will get all three engines, while the U.S. model will cross the pond with the six-cylinder and only the more powerful version of the four-banger. Another interesting detail that comes with the leak is that, apparently, the Supra won’t get a manual transmission. This wouldn’t be surprising here in North America, but as it turns out, European models are automatic too, no matter the engine.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Supra

If there is a car that is included on almost every list of “greatest enthusiasts car” it’s the Toyota Supra. The little two-door sports car was originally bolted together as a response to the Z cars coming from competitor Datsun, but it eventually grew into a special machine with a cult-like following. Now after years of rumor, speculation and dreaming, it looks like the new Toyota Supra is all but official. With Toyota having launched the FT-1 concept in 2014 and with sporty prototypes spotted on the road since 2016, it looks as if the next-generation Supra isn’t far from becoming reality.

The story of the Supra may start in 1978, but it was in 1987 with the introduction of the first turbocharged model that it began to truly build its performance legacy. This third-generation Supra was fitted with more than a powerful engine. It featured adjustable suspension and brake systems that helped make it great around a racetrack as well. It became a cult icon in the auto enthusiast world, and everyone has been clamoring for a new model since the old one was pulled from U.S. showrooms in the late 1990s.

With more info and rumors coming out on a regular basis about the next-gen Toyota Supra, it was only a matter of time before the first prototypes hit the streets. This finally happened in September 2016, basically giving confirmation that the new Supra will arrive in dealerships pretty soon. Based on the spy shots, we created a rendering of the upcoming sports car, to go with our speculative review Read on to see our thoughts on the matter and stay tuned for updates.

Update 08/09/2017: The Toyota Supra has been hidden away for some time, with its last appearance occurring some five months ago. Now, it has been caught out on public roads again. Not much has changed, but there is one exciting change to share. Check out our spy shots section below to see what it is.

PostHeaderIcon Gazoo Performance Brand Grabs Hold Of Toyota's New Supra Hybrid Sports Car

There’s been plenty of talk surrounding the long-awaited return of the Toyota Supra. That’s to be expected for a car that a lot of people have been waiting for. But the return of the sports car isn’t just about a once-famous nameplate coming back to the spotlight; it’s also about looking into the future and what that future has in store in the evolution of the Supra name. It’s already been reported that the 2018 Supra will actually be a hybrid performance model. Now we’re told that the Supra won’t actually be sold under the Toyota brand, but will instead be the first car to be sold under Toyota’s newly launched Gazoo road performance division.

That bombshell comes from no less than Gazoo Racing chief Koei Saga, who told Autocar that the Supra would be one of the first of many performance models that will be sold under the Gazoo name. It’s still unclear if that shift will end up with the sports car carrying a different name altogether – Gazoo Supra and Toyota Supra Gazoo are two names being thrown around – but the important thing here is that Toyota’s now creating a separate performance arm that will include the Supra hybrid sports car.

For now, the Gazoo Supra (let’s call it that for the time being) will cede a lot of the attention to the three-door Gazoo Yaris hot hatchback, which technically counts as the first production model under the new Gazoo brand. The hot hatch is scheduled to make its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show this coming March where it will showcase a lot of its wares, including a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that spits out more than 210 horsepower.

Once the Gazoo Yaris is introduced to the world, look for Toyota and Gazoo to turn their focus on putting the finishing touches on the Supra hybrid sports car as it prepares to make its own world debut in 2018, presumably with a different name that what we’ve been expecting.

PostHeaderIcon Four New Cars to Look Out for in 2017

zrs3-002

The last year has been a good one for the motor industry, and if what we’ve seen of upcoming offerings is anything to go by 2017’s going to be another one, so we’ve put together a list of some of the cars petrol heads should be excited to see in the coming year.

Audi RS3 Saloon

We all know how good the German manufacturer’s existing line is, but their new saloon looks to be a step up even from that, with a turbocharged engine that can take the improved, lighter frame from nought to sixty in just over four seconds. In keeping with the sportier design philosophy, this model will add improved braking and suspension systems for a real feeling of power and control in your driving experience.

Honda Civic Type R

civic-type-r

The new hot hatch from Honda has the look of a statelier vehicle, but sits on top of four thick tyres for legendary traction and comes loaded with a boosted engine. Honda has its sights set on the crown currently worn by the Ford Focus RS as the premier sporty hatchback and the VW Golf GTI Clubsport S’s Nürburgring record, and if the quality of the car lives up to its ambition it’ll be well worth the expected £32,000 price tag.

Skoda Octavia

Skoda-Octavia

This familiar family car is set to get an edgy revamp this year, featuring a sharper, more stylish look in the vein of the Superb and Kodiaq SUV. In addition to a makeover, the new model will be gaining smartphone integration for iOS and Android. The engine range isn’t expected to change so it should be as cheap to run as ever, though some are speculating that a petrol-powered GreenLine model could be making its debut this year.

Toyota Supra

2016-Toyota-Supra

This sleek sports car almost looks like something out of a science fiction movie, but recent photos show this collaboration with BMW to be the real deal. Little is known as of yet, but it shares a platform with the BMW Z5, features an extensive infotainment dash, and simply oozes style. Keep you eyes peeled for more announcements about this in the coming months.

The post Four New Cars to Look Out for in 2017 appeared first on Motorward.

PostHeaderIcon The New Toyota Supra Could Be Electrified

Look, I get it – you want a new Toyota Supra. I want a new Toyota Supra. The whole performance world wants a new Toyota Supra. Well, I’ve got good news – it looks like we won’t have to wait much longer to get it, as a pre-production mule was spotted last month doing some street testing in a full camo exterior. Now, to really whet your appetite, we’re bringing you a few tantalizing hints as to what’ll be used under the hood. Reading between the lines of a few recent comments made by a high-ranking Toyota rep, it’s looking more than likely that the new Supra will use a hybrid drivetrain.

That’s the news coming from the U.K. publication Auto Express, which recently spoke with Toyota Europe president and CEO Johan van Zyl about the possibility of using hybrid or plug-in hybrid technology for an entry in the sports car segment. His response: “I would imagine that in the future that will definitely happen.”

He continued, “We already have some sporting models with hybrid powertrains on the Lexus side. But on the Toyota side, I think we will find that if we can have a World Endurance Championship racing car with hybrid technology, it can happen on a road car,” adding, “I do not have any doubt whatsoever that in the longer-term future there will be a real Toyota sports model using electrification.”

Le Mans-inspired performance paired with the legendary Supra nameplate? Yes, please.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Supra Prototype Caught on Video

Much has been said about the long-awaited return of the Toyota Supra and for as long as we’ve all waited to see the car in action, I have to say that watching this video of the camouflaged Supra leaving BMW’s M Test Center at the Nürburgring has made all that waiting worth it.

We don’t get to see too much of the car, but we do hear the sound of its engine, and for what it’s worth, it sounds everything that I expected it to be. Now the roar isn’t as throaty as some might have expected, but that’s likely because a hybrid engine is sitting under its hood. There have been reports that the Supra will come with a number of different engines with a hybrid V-6 serving as the range-topping variant. Should that be the case, what we just saw may be that model underneath all that camouflage.

Speaking of which, the camouflage does its job in hiding most of the Supra’s exterior details, but if you pause the video, there are some details that are worth pointing out. The first is what appears to be rectangular headlights that I’m not sure how to feel about. On the one hand, it does point to a lineage to the Supra line, but on the other hand, rectangular headlights in 2016? Interesting choice, if it does end up looking like that.

On a more positive note, if you pause the video at the right time, you’ll notice how sloped the front nose is, almost as if it’s lying completely diagonal. Could that be a design inspired by the Toyota FT-1 Concept? Last but not least is the rear section, which is a far departure from what we expected it would look like. At first glance, it looks a lot like the rear section of the pre-2017 model year Toyota GT 86 with the round taillights and the dual tailpipes sitting on opposite ends. The bumper does appear to be much lower than the old 86 and the presence of that fixed rear spoiler creates the striking aesthetic difference that leads me to believe that there’s more underneath that camouflage than what meets the eye.


PostHeaderIcon Latest Rumors About Toyota and Lexus Point to an All-New Engine for the next Supra

The rumor mill is churning over at Toyota with reports that the Japanese automaker is finally building a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, codenamed 943F, that it plans to use on the fifth-generation Lexus GS. The model is scheduled to make its debut in late 2017 or early 2018 and will be marketed as a 2019 model. But, according to Japanese media outlet Mag-X, the big takeaway from the fifth-gen GS is the turbocharged V-6, the first production V-6 that Toyota will build in its long and illustrious history.

While there hasn’t been any confirmation coming from either Toyota or Lexus, there is an argument to be made for Lexus to get a turbo V-6, none more so than the increased importance being placed by automakers in downsizing their engines as a way of addressing the increasingly stringent emissions regulations. For its part, Lexus also needs a forced induction V-6 because a lot of its competitors already utilize a similar engine in some form or capacity. It may be time for Toyota’s premium brand to join the fray in that regard and expand its V-6 offerings past the turbocharged inline-sixes that it has used in the past.

If Toyota does take this step, don’t sleep on the possibility of another model eventually using the same engine. Again, this is all speculation but if Toyota wants to maximize the seemingly limitless potential of the returning Supra sports car, having a turbocharged V-6 as an engine option is a great way to do it. At the very least, it would be able to make a big statement in differentiating the sports car with the Toyota GT 86, which currently uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. That’s been one of Toyota’s goals anyway so it only makes sense for the company to give the Supra the same turbo V-6 that it is reportedly developing for the Lexus GS.

PostHeaderIcon The Return Of The Toyota Supra Is Upon Us

The highly anticipated return of the Toyota Supra could take place as early as 2018 now that development of the sports car has progressed to the point that Toyota and project partner BMW have moved on to developing their respective models independent of each other. For one, Toyota is already in the process of testing the Supra on the road, same as BMW with the convertible Z5, the German automaker’s sports car that will arise from the partnership with Toyota.

The return of the Supra marks an important time for Toyota as it tries to re-establish itself in the mainstream sports car scene. It’s been 14 years since the last Supra arrived and with the segment becoming as busy as it’s ever been in a long time, a flagship performance mode that would sit above the GT 86 and would carry one of the company’s most iconic nameplates is exactly what Toyota needs to compete in an increasingly competitive market.

Toyota has remained tight-lipped on the sports car’s power and performance capabilities, but it is already understood that the Supra would feature a hybrid all-wheel drive set-up that will be made up of a BMW gas-powered engine and electric motors whose energy is stored in supercapacitors.

Despite the expected similarities born from this collaboration, the Toyota Supra and the BMW Z5 will be two different models, largely because they’ll occupy different areas of the sports car market. The Supra, for instance, is likely to be slotted against the Honda NSX and will be packaged with a more purist thought to the development. On the other hand, the Z5 convertible is expected to take the reins from the BMW Z4 as the German automaker’s resident sports car, albeit one with a more balanced development of luxury and performance.

No decisions on the production side have been set for either car, but according to BMW board member Ian Robertson, there’s a possibility that both models could be built in the same production facility. The U.S. or Europe are the two most likely locations to have the facility, largely because of the importance of both markets for Toyota and BMW.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Trademarks The "Supra" Name In Europe

Two years after Toyota renewed its trademark for the “Supra” name with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the Japanese automaker is doubling down on the trademark front by filing a similar application with the European Union Intellectual Property Office.

According to SupraMKV.com, Toyota filed the trademark on March 6, 2016 and this filing is the latest sign that the company is drawing closer to bringing back the famous nameplate on the sports car it’s developing as part of a partnership with BMW. The collaboration between the two auto giants began in earnest back in 2010 and while neither Toyota’s sports car nor BMW’s own version, reportedly to be called the Z5, have yet to be unveiled in public, previous reports have indicated that production for both models will begin in 2018. Independent vehicle manufacturer Magna Steyr will reportedly produce both models in Graz, Austria with a target of building 60,000 combined units annually. Should that timetable proceed as scheduled, an official unveiling – or two – could be in the cards for 2017.

If Toyota does bring back the Supra name for the sports car as many expect it to be, it would represent the fifth-generation model for the iconic nomenclature. The Japanese automaker last used the Supra name in 2002 when the fourth-generation model, codenamed the A80, was on its last legs.

As far as official details about the car are concerned, Toyota has done a good job at keeping them from getting disclosed to the public. There have been some rumors that the model’s platform will be shared with that of the BMW sports car. That said, the design for both cars will be different with the Toyota sports car expected to carry some styling influences from the Toyota FT-1 concept that was unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show. Likewise, both models are reportedly getting gas-powered engines from BMW and a hybrid powertrain from Toyota.

To be clear, none of these “reports” have been officially confirmed by Toyota or BMW, but that’s an issue for another time. What’s important is that Toyota’s trademark of the “Supra” name in Europe is the latest sign that the iconic nameplate will be dusted off after spending 14 years in the shelves.

PostHeaderIcon Next BMW And Toyota Sports Cars Will Be Built By Magna Steyr

In the early 2010s, there was a lot of news about a collaboration between Toyota and BMW to bring a set of new sports cars to the market. In short, it was news that Toyota was planning a successor for the Toyota Supra and BMW was planning a successor for the BMW Z4, and both models would share the same architecture – the same story behind the Toyota 86 and the Subaru BRZ. It was later said that Toyota would build the new Supra alone, but would co-develop the next Z4 with BMW. Since then, we’ve seen the new BMW sports car – dubbed the Z5 – testing under heavy camo, and we’ve seen what may have been a preview of the new Supra when Toyota debuted the 2014 Toyota FT-1 concept.

Now, German news outlet Kleinezeitung has announced that both brand’s models will be built by independent vehicle manufacturer Magna Steyr – the Austria-based plant that currently builds the Mercedes G-Class, Mini Countryman, and Mini Paceman. According to the German new outlet, the Z5 is set to go into production first, with the successor to the Supra to follow shortly thereafter. Furthermore, it was said that annual production would be somewhere around 60,000 units for each model.

As of now, BMW has confirmed that it had plans to start building a new model at Magna’s plant in 2018 but had yet to disclose which model. That said, it’s quite possible that the new Z5 will be the model that starts production in 2018. For now, the successor to the Supra remains unnamed, but expect it to start production in late 2018 or early 2019. Based on the spy shots of the Z5, we know that it will be a soft top roadster and will be rear-wheel drive. As for the Supra, we expect it to at least be a hybrid that uses technology from Toyota’s recent WEC developments. The proverbial cat is practically out of the bag for now, so stay tuned for more updates on the collaboration between BMW and Toyota.

Now after years of rumor, speculation and dreaming, it looks like the new Toyota Supra is all but official. Toyota’s newest concept car, the 2014 Toyota FT-1 likely previews the new shape and design of the upcoming Supra replacement.

The story of the Supra may start in 1978, but it was in 1987 with the introduction of the first turbocharged 1986-1992 Supra, that it began to truly build its performance legacy. This third-generation Supra was fitted with more than a powerful engine. It featured adjustable suspension and brake systems that helped make it great around a racetrack as well.

PostHeaderIcon The Fast and The Furious Toyota Supra Stunt Car Auctioned For $185k

As reported last month, one of the Toyota Supra stunt cars used in the original The Fast and The Furious movie was auctioned off by Mecum Auctions in Indianapolis over the weekend, and as expected, the winning bidder paid a pretty penny to add this car to his collection. When the hammer dropped, this customized 1995 Toyota Supra stunt car sold for $185,000 meeting the initial expectations of between $150,000 and $200,000.

In the movie, the bright orange Supra was driven by Paul Walker’s character Brian O’Conner, and this car was used to create the racing scenes including the finale where O’Conner races Dominic Toretto in his classic Dodge Charger.The Supra was built at The Shark Shop in El Segundo, CA by Eddie Paul, who has fabricated other cars for the Fast and Furious franchise, full-size Cars characters, and the 1967 Pontiac GTO driven by Vin Diesel in xXx.

Although the Supra looks the part, this stunt car probably won’t be able to beat a Ferrari F355 in a drag race (as was portrayed in the movie). This car comes with the Supra’s non-turbo 2JZ-GE 3.0-liter inline-six as well as a pair of disconnected nitrous tanks and a “heavy-duty” suspension.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Supra Stunt Car from The Fast and The Furious Heads to the Mecum Auction Block

It’s hard to believe that The Fast and The Furious franchise is now 14 years old, but even after seven installments, some of the most iconic racing in this franchise still comes from Brian O’Conner’s bright orange Toyota Supra. For the ultimate Fast and Furious fan, Mecum Auctions is listing one of the Supra stunt cars used in that movie, and it goes up for auction on May 16th at Mecum’s 28th Original Spring Classic 2015 in Indianapolis.

Although the Supra hero car is from the 1995 model year, this matching stunt car is listed as a 1993 model. The exterior is an exact match for the car driven by Paul Walker’s character in the movie, but the stunt car’s interior is built for safety with a full roll cage, racing bucket seats, etc.

According the auction listing, this stunt car was built for the movie’s use by Eddie Paul at The Shark Shop in El Segundo, California, and it was used in key scenes, including the final race scene where Brian O’Conner drag races Dominic Toretto in his 1970 Dodge Charger. And if this car’s movie pedigree wasn’t enough, it was also a first-place class winner at the Detroit Autorama earlier this year.

There’s no telling how much it is going to cost someone to add this Supra to his collection, but with the seventh installment of the Fast and Furious franchise in theaters right now, the price is sure to run quite high.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota's New Sports Car Might Not Go Hybrid

In a collaborative project codenamed “Silk Road,” Toyota and BMW are teaming up to build the next-generation Supra and Z4. Much like the Toyota/Subaru partnership that birthed the FR-S and BRZ, this new effort will see contributions from both automakers, with the Germans responsible for the turbocharged inline-six cylinder engine and rear-drive chassis, and the Japanese penning the exterior body and throwing in a boatload of money.

Originally, rumors spread that the new Supra would bear a BMW-sourced 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder blessed with electrification thanks to Toyota’s extensive experience with hybrids. Output was placed somewhere north of 400 horsepower.

Now, however, CarAndDriver is shooting down that possibility, saying that while Toyota will let Bimmer in on some of its cheap hybrid technology, “there’s currently no indication that the Silk Road cars will offer hybrid options.”

Instead, the publication is reporting that BMW will develop a four-banger for the Z4, while Toyota will stick to the larger boosted straight six. It also says that leaks from Germany hint that the new Supra will be released in just two years time as a 2018 model, with the platform offering enough flexibility for additional BMW variants and even possibly a Lexus model.
