A Retrospective Tribute to the Toyota Supra
XCAR presents a look back on the history of the Toyota Supra, which makes its comeback to the racetrack this year. First rolled out back in 1978, the car was first styled after the Celica before formally becoming its own model in 1986. It remained a favorite among grassroots motor enthusiasts until and well after Toyota cut sales to the States in 1998 with domestic production ceasing officially in 2002. However, in 2010, the Japanese automaker applied for a trademark to the Supra name and various sources claim that the reincarnation of the car would be released in 2015 as a hybrid between BMW and Toyota. As to the specifics of this new venture, only time will tell. Until more official details are made available, check out the video tribute to the Supra above.
