TOYOTA SUPRA REPLACEMENT DUE IN 2011
400bhp rear-drive coupe could get V6 petrol AND hybrid power
Reports from Japan say Toyota’s wild-looking FT-HS hybrid ‘Supra’ is still under development - and a production model concept could be revealed at the Tokyo motor show this autumn.
However, it also seems Toyota is intent on satisfying the sports car purists with the new model, and will offer a basic version without any of the hybrid electrics that could go on sale for between £20-£30k.
The reports say that although Toyota’s new FT-HS ‘Supra’ has been held back by the Toyobaru coupe, which is destined for launch in 2010, the project has now moved out of the design phase, with test mules slated to be running by late this year and production versions hitting showrooms as early as 2011.
