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.

Motor Mouth: Why a VW-Fiat merger would be a chaotic disaster

Jul 25 2014 5:00am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Ferdinand Piech, supervisory board chair
The future success of the rumoured — and much denied — Fiat-Chrysler-Volkswagen merger being bandied about this past week very much depends on whether you believe the success of a corporation is the logical conclusion of capitalistic dynamics or the forceful vision of one charismatic leader. If you believe in the former, then you believe that the logistics will help buffer the giant against business cycles, that is if the Volkswagen Grou ...

Hybrid Highway: Trailblazing Cabbie

Jul 24 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Denver Outlaws v Florida Launch
As is the case with most trailblazers, Andrew Grant was regarded as a bit of a nut job. “Everybody thought I was crazy. They said the car was too small to be a cab.” He even had potential fares come up to the car then refuse to get in once they saw the hybrid badging, saying they’d wait for another taxi. “They figured it was unsafe.” That was back in the winter of 2000-01, when the then 20-year veteran Vancouver taxi drive ...

Toyota Motors' compact vehicle "Vitz" is
Filed under: Budget, Hatchback, Toyota, Design/Style Toyota released a new Yaris in Europe and its Vitz clone in Japan a few months ago, so we knew it would only be a matter of time before it would launch the new hatchback here in North America. And that time has come. The new, more distinctive 2015 Yaris features far more aggressive exterior styling, a look set apart by that large lower air dam and X-motif front end.

2015 Toyota Yaris Debuts: New Nose, New Dash, Still a Car

SUV's, Crossover Vehicles Surpass Sedan Sales For First Time
When Toyota last redesigned its Yaris subcompact, the company launched the remarkably frank “It’s a CAR!” marketing campaign. We weren’t impressed with the campaign, but the sportified SE model did finish third out of six in a subsequent cheap-car comparison test—pretty good for being “just a car.” For 2015, Toyota has restyled the Yaris inside and out, and the company has provide ...
