Toy­ota’s sports-car fu­ture looks promis­ing:

The Hamilton Spectator - - WHEELS -

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.
