It is quite obvious that it would be great to see few iconic models resurrected and the rumors about the 2016 Toyota Supra seems to come in the right time. After the FT1 concept was launched by Toyota many immediately thought that this car maker will use it as a source for new Supra and this might just happen.
As a result we could hear and see rumors from few quite respective sources delivering speculations and from few of those we could see quite interesting details that we really liked. Original Supra was produced and delivered as 1979 model but from 1982 it was redesigned and changed drastically. From 1986 to 1992 it was introduced as third generation model but the 1993 to 1998 was the last generation. Few last models that were delivered deserved iconic status and it was one of the cars that received most attention from many tuners with special and upgraded versions.
Images that we could see are only of the concept car and if the all new Supra is delivered we are sure that it will be quite similar to the FT1 concept. Sharp, aggressive and aerodynamic lines dominate and front segment certainly reminds us on few F1 vehicles. When add to this large wheels and large back spoiler we get complete image of the car as a sporty and performance oriented coupe. One of the best we saw in long time and worthy competitor on the segment.
2016 Toyota Supra Concept
Since this i performance oriented vehicle certainly the most important and most interesting part of it is the engine that will provide all the grunt it will need to compete with many supercars and other similar models. There are at least two versions and in both of those versions we could hear that the 2016 Toyota Supra will offer about 400 hp. In first version there will be the BMW sourced inline six cylinder twin turbo engine while the second source suggest that instead of the inline six we will be getting V6 unit.
Further rumors and reports say that there could be the less powerful naturally aspirated V6 engine for a base model and that one could offer about 300 hp which again would be quite great for this small and pretty much light vehicle. Among the most interesting features that we could hear about 2016 Toyota Supra is the fact that it could come with hybrid powertrain and in this case it could offer from 250 to 400 hp.
Price Of 2016 Toyota Supra
Price is one of the segments about which we still do not have any details but looking at the potential competitors with similar power it is quite obvious that base price for the 2016 Toyota Supra will be about $40,000 to $50,000. Things are getting even more complicated since the reports say we might be offered with both coupe and convertible models and we also expect those to have different prices.
There are still many things that we do not know regarding new Supra but as the release date approaches we expect to see more details delivered. Production ready model could be presented during the next year, most likely during the summer if Toyota wants to launch it before the end of 2015th. As soon as we get more info about the 2016 Toyota Supra we will provide that right here.
