If you’ve been wondering what Toyota and BMW have been up to in regards to their new midsize sports car collaboration project that’s supposed to give birth to a new Supra successor, so have we.
And AutoGuide answers our questions with a new report claiming that Toyota has just filed a new trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for “S-FR.”
Now, trademark filings can be a wild goose chase, so it’s never truly advised to take such filing seriously, since they could just be exercises.
But speculation suggests this new filing for “S-FR” could imply a new name for the supposed Supra successor that we’re supposed to be expecting.
Not much is known about the car, but a reveal sometime in 2017 for a launch in 2018 is still on track with original reports. Inspiration should be taken from the FT-1 Concept while power should be supplied by a BMW-sourced turbocharged straight-six.
