Report: Toyota Supra successor could push 400-hp

On the heels of Toyota’s interest in building more interesting cars and of course the introduction of the /GT 86/Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ, it would only make sense that Toyota is working on a new Supra.

The technical bits or suggestions at this point indicate the Lexus GS’s 3.5 liter engine and hybrid powertrain tuned to about 400 bhp, possibly with four wheel drive. Aesthetics wise, it seems that the FT-HS concept shown at the 2007 Detroit Auto Show might be a good indication of things to come.

Waiting though still will be the name of the game for a while and Toyota is not interested in releasing the car until 2014-2015, meanwhile, a similar powertrain is being fitted in the Lexus IS coupe, which may lead to a niche issue if the cars end up being mechanically similar.
