When the Toyota FT-HS Hybrid Concept made its debut back in 2007, the possibility of a Supra successor started to look bright; however, Toyota later said that sports car just have a lesser priority on the company’s to-do list.

Well, according to the insiders at 7Tune, work has secretly continued on a Supra successor and with enthusiast Akio Toyoda now taking over as CEO, we’re probably closer than ever to a new Toyota Supra.

Internally known as the 086A, a prototype is expected to be completed by the end of 2009. The car has moved out of design phase and sources say that Toyota is looking at a 3.5L V6 engine that will be mated to the current Toyota Crown hybrid system delivering a total of 400-hp to the rear-wheel-drive sports car.

As reported before, the Supra successor is expected to debut in late 2011.

    i'd rather have this… but honestly think about it…if they are doing a toyota subaru car i doubt the Supra is coming anytime soon.

    i just dont understand the whole hybrid/sports car deal…if ur driving a sports car you obviously made your choice of performance over all out efficiency. why weigh the car down with all that crap?

    it definitely wouldn't be a true supra if they followed through with it. a real supra is an enthusiast's car, not some eco guru with a few extra horsepower to lug around the weight a little faster…

    I think this is a good Toyota model.
    The availability of 400hp is enough for a Toyota hybrid car.
