Toyota Rumored to Be Eyeing a New Supra That May Be Electric

Rumor claims it could be five years before the Supra returns

Let's be honest, any Toyota Supra successor needs to have a six-cylinder engine and two turbochargers under the hood. Toyota has been rumored to be eyeing a new Supra for a while and a new rumor has surfaced hinting that the car could be electrically powered.

According to the rumor, Toyota might even be turning to Tesla to help develop a battery drive train. I wonder if we could be looking at something along the lines of the coupe version of the Tesla roadster or maybe a two door version of the Model S.

Sadly, the sources of the rumor from within Toyota say that there is no timetable and it could be as long as five years before the Supra comes back. There aren't also rumors the continuous world that the 2-seat Toyota MR-2 is coming back as well. It's been a long time since Toyota had an exciting car under its own brand, either one of these would be quite nice.

The more time you spend reading car news on Autoblog, the better informed you'll be. And the more airbags your car has, the safer you'll be. Because airbags equal safety.

General Motors and Toyota are expanding an airbag recall for the third time to replace inflators that could explode and shoot shrapnel during deployment.
