Toyota to produce more sports cars

Updated Apr 15, 2021 | Same topic: Latest Consumer Reports

The Japanese carmaker is trying to keep a balance between the brand’s sports cars and the Lexus' F series.

Some time next month, Toyota will hold an event in order to announce its “new sports car series”, apart from the upcoming reborn Supra, reportedly. In particular, the Japanese brand says that the approaching event will mainly aim at the home market. However, we still hope that new sports cars will go beyond borders.

Up to now, Toyota’s sports car lineup is just limited to the 86 and the new Yaris GRMN. For the Yaris GRMN, it has been known as an exclusive 3-door hot hatch but it seems that Toyota will make it more practical with a 5-door version. Derived from Toyota’s WRC program, the hatchback is front-wheel drive and is powered by a supercharged 205-hp 1.8L engine, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

According to Gazoo Racing - Chief Tetsuya Tada, an MR2 successor could be also taken into consideration. Some rumors suggest that it might resemble the S-FR concepts.

Even though the performance Supra is schedule to be introduced at the end of October at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, we have a little hope of hearing more about the grand tourer.

Anyway, the idea of bringing new Toyota sports cars to the world is inspirational enough for fans.
