The Toyota Supra’ successor is one of the most highly-anticipated launches this decade. It has been reported that the new sports car will be previewed by a concept next year. It will be an evolution of the Toyota FT-1 concept that was unveiled at the 2014 North American International Auto Show. The model will be put into production in 2017, based on a new platform co-developed with the BMW Group.
