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.

Used Car Connoisseur: Hardy Toyota 4Runner has certainly held up

Jul 31 2014 1:32pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

When the fourth-generation 4Runner debuted it did so as a vastly improved sport-utility vehicle. Yes, the body still rode on a frame and it had a solid rear axle, which gave rise to some truck-like handling, but it also gave the 4Runner some very real off-road ability. Unlike many of its peers, it did not get mired in its own mediocrity the instant the terrain changed from cottage access road to a rugged trail. This was the foundation ...

Nissan’s Frontier is long over-due for a refresh. The basic design debuted 10 years ago in 2004 and though it only has one competitor, the Toyota Tacoma, sales have been rather slow.
