Toyota Supra rumors continue with 400-hp hybrid power
Have we told you how badly we want a reboot of the Toyota Supra (and the Honda NSX)? One of the iconic cars of Gen X youth, the Supra died an untimely death in the mid-1990s along with the rest of the Japanese sports car market. This was, of course, long before most of us had managed to graduate from college and get decent enough jobs to be able to afford anything more exciting than a used Honda Civic.
So yes, we hang on every word out of Japan, and the latest comes via Motor Trend. It’s reporting that a hybrid, 400-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 powertrain is being tested for possible release in 2015. The new Supra would look a lot like the FT-HS concept that Toyota showed at the 2007 Detroit Auto Show, according to the magazine, which also says that if we really want to see this Supra successor, we’d better hope the Toyota GT 86/Scion FR-S does well.
