More details on the 2019 Toyota Supra
A few more details came out last week about Toyota’s upcoming Supra sports car. The biggest of those is that it might be sold under the Gazoo Racing banner as opposed to purely Toyota. Autocar talked to Koei Saga, the boss of Gazoo, who said that producing a halo hybrid model like this “was a dream of his.”
Gazoo Racing is Toyota’s factory race team featuring World Rally Championship drivers Jari-Mati Latvala, Juho Hanninen and Esapekka Lappi and World Endurance Championship’s Sebastien Buemi and eight others. Gazoo is currently third in the manufacturers’ standings in WRC — Latvala is in fourth place with one event to go — while its WEC team struggled to finish at Le Mans the past two years.
Autocar is also guessing the next Supra will feature a 243-hp four and a 328-hp six, both derived from BMW Z-car mills, with which it will share a handful of parts. We still don’t know, but aren’t optimistic about, the chance of a manual transmission.
