Lots of people across the United States still love the Toyota Supra. It continues to have plenty of fans in Van Nuys and right here at Keyes Toyota. The last one rolled off the lines in 2002, and the faithful have awaited its return ever since. That long-awaited comeback may be closer than it seems, at least if recent rumors based on sightings of a new Toyota car in heavy test camo are to be believed.
This wouldn't be the first time the Toyota Supra was rumored to be returning to production. In 2007, Toyota showed the Toyota FT-HS concept in Frankfurt. Seven years later, the Toyota FT-1 concept took its first bow in Detroit. Both had the kind of sinewy lines and promised performance that reminded folks of the old Toyota Supra.
There are two other causes for optimism. The Toyota FT-1 concept raised its head again this year in Tokyo. Then, there's the aforementioned test mule. Like many production prototypes, it bears a resemblance to earlier concept vehicles, but with its shape toned down some. It doesn't look like any other production car from Toyota, which lends credence to the rendering shown by Jalopnik, which broke the news.
Akio Toyoda made one simple promise when he took the reins at Toyota a few years ago: he would bring the fun back to driving. He wasn't kidding. Toyota has adopted a design aesthetic and an approach to the drive that's transformed even staid old standbys like the 2017 Toyota Camry. A new Toyota Supra would be a jewel in the crown for the company. While we're waiting (with bated breath), why not stop by Keyes Toyota at 5855 Van Nuys Blvd. in Van Nuys, CA or call your Van Nuys Toyota dealership at 800-296-3052 to arrange a test drive of a great new Toyota car today?
