The Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept Steps Out at the Geneva Motor Show

 
 

 

We haven’t seen a production-model Supra coupe since the last generation bowed out way back in 2002--and while the race-spec two-door hardtop that shone at Geneva wasn't quite production-ready, it was close enough to rile the industry up into a frenzy.

The new Toyota Supra is a thrilling and groundbreaking collaboration between Toyota and BMW (yes, that BMW), combining Toyota racing heritage with select components from BMW platform and powertrains.

Since this specific model is built for the track, we can assume that a production-line coupe will be slightly more toned-down, and more luxurious inside. However, we'd love to see some of these details stick around, like the massive rear wheel arches and the rear wing spoiler.
