Not surprisingly, CEO Akio Toyoda, a long-time racing fan and highly experienced driver, has personally been testing prototypes for the past three years, offering plenty of input. “It was only recently that he started smiling a little, and said ‘it has become better'”, Tada added. And speaking of racing, we’ve already seen the GR Supra Super GT Concept, which clearly indicates Toyota’s Gazoo Racing division has some future plans.
Toyota’s current sports car, the 86, also lacks a Toyota-developed engine, utilizing one from Subaru, which builds the BRZ twin. Tada hinted but refused to divulge details that Toyota is quietly developing sporty engines of its own. We’ll bring you plenty of more details next month from Detroit where we’ll be on hand for the new Supra’s big reveal.
