2015 Toyota Supra
Update June 2013:
The joint sports car project between Toyota and BMW is moving right along
with a concept model expected to be shown at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.
According to sources close to the project, GT86 (Scion FR-S) chief engineer
Tetsuya Tada is also heading up the new jointly developed sports car
between the two automakers. Tada has already visited BMW multiple times in
the past year and even headed to Munich shortly after the 2013 Geneva Motor
It appears that BMW will be tasked with modifying the GT86 platform to
underpin the new sports car, stretching it so that it can enter the midsize
sports car market segment. There is, of course, a small chance that a BMW
platform will be used to underpin the project, but given the success of the
GT86 and Tada's involvement, that's unlikely.
As for engines, all signs point to a BMW-sourced, four-cylinder --
especially with the success of their recent turbocharged four cylinders. But it's not entirely
safe to assume that the powerplant will be turbocharged or even supercharged. The sports car
could very well be a hybrid, the same way recent supercars such as the
Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1 has opted to go.
The biggest news however is that this project won't be going the same route
as the GT86, where the FR-S and the BRZ share similar sheetmetal. Both
sports cars will look significantly different, making Supra enthusiasts
hope for a true successor to Toyota's sports car.
Average man drives the Lexus LFA!!
My friend and I were guests of Lexus at a driving event at the Autoclub
Speedway in Fontana, CA in Feb 2011.
I channeled my inner Top Gear presenter while driving the car. My
commentary is barely more than a babble- makes me respect automotive
journalists that much more- it's not easy to talk about a car both
intelligently and spontaneously!!
Well anyway I hope you enjoy it and get a sense of the thrill this
experience was. I am immensely jealous of those folks that can afford such
an expensive car, and I hope they really make the most of it! (uh hum, I'm
talking to you Paris!!).
The LFA is a masterpiece of engineering- each part of the car has been
highly thought out, from Carbon Fiber body panels to aerodynamic wing
mirrors that funnel air to the cooling ducts.
