Toyota’s newly appointed chairman Takeshi Uchiyamada wants a new Supra



Quote:
In a recent interview, Takeshi Uchiyamada a.k.a. Toyota’s newly appointed chairman revealed the fact that he wants to see the upcoming Toyota and BMW co-developed sports car become the new Supra. Moreover, he also added that the next sports car should be just like the Supra in order to avoid killing the sales of the smaller Toyota GT86. “It’s futile if we make something similar [to the GT86]”, said Uchiyamada. Still, he also added that this is what he wants but he is not the man in charge with the decisions. For those who don’t know, earlier this year Toyota and BMW announced plans to co-develop a new mid-sized sports car. The Toyota Supra was discontinued 11 years ago, back in 2002. The Supra has a history of 24 years, involving four generations, so a successor of the car should definitely be built.
