Toyota’s sports-car future looks promising:
Reliable sources are telling The Sleuth that the Japan-based automaker, at the behest of its race-loving CEO Akio Toyoda, will eventually have three sports cars on the market to serve three different types of customers. Along with the Toyota 86 (formerly the Scion FRS), which is due to be replaced for 2019, a higher-end model that revives the Supra name is also in the works. Lastly, the S-FR concept has received the green light, although it will likely look quite different when it launches in about two to three years. Power for the sub-$25,000 (estimated) rear-wheel-drive S-FR will likely come from a non-turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at about 130 horsepower.
