Focus on grunt for Toyota’s GT-R hunter

TADA-SAN promises a revived Supra – officially the name is TBC – will focus on grunt more than 86. “You can enjoy driving around that comes with power and comes with the speed,” he concedes to critics of 86’s performance. “But the next release production [flagship sports coupe] would like to go beyond that.”

And competitors to what he tags will be the “top of Toyota sports” car? “As soon as you make a normal car there is always a rival to compare the ability, but when you talk sports car it’s not that way,” says Tada. “It is more a self satisfaction, that always works out better than putting a target on competitors.” – DD
