Toyota By Chris Perkins May 13, 2016 Remember BMW and Toyota’s partnership to build a two-door, rear-drive sports car? It’s OK if you don’t—it was announced years ago, and there hasn’t been any significant news on it lately. But luckily, some news indicates that the joint roadster project is still in the works, with a rumor that the car will be built in Austria by manufacturing firm Magna Steyr.

If Magna Steyr sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the company that manufactures the Mercedes G-Wagen, as well as the soon-to-be-discontinued Mini Paceman.The company specializes in low-volume production for a variety of automakers including BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Peugeot. Magna Steyr is also said to start production on an as-yet unannounced Jaguar Land Rover vehicle next year, Automotive News reports.Even though demand for two-seat roadsters is currently low, BMW CEO Harold Krueger reinforced his company’s commitment to a Z4 replacement.”BMW has a long roadster tradition,” Krueger said in an interview with Automotive News Europe. “We will occupy the segment once more. It’s not big, but it’s important for the strength of the brand.” It’s still unclear whether this car will represent the return of the Toyota Supra that fans have been clamoring for, or whether the Toyota version will represent a different type of sports car altogether.

The Toyota 86 Shooting Brake Concept was displayed in Sydney, Australia in 2016. Toyota’s global chief engineer Tetsuya Tada saw a quarter scale clay model of the car during a trip to the Australian branch in 2014 and arranged for a full scale, fully function version to be built in Japan by Toyota’s Takumi (“artisan”) craftsmen. Tada said, “while we never say never, and I would love this concept to become a production reality, it is very much a concept that demonstrates the passion within Toyota for cars that are fun to drive”. Commenting on the new car, Toyota’s Australian Divisional Manager National Marketing Brad Cramb said: ”The Toyota 86 lends itself perfectly to a concept that expands its appeal with added versatility while retaining its sleek and sporty coupe styling and sharp, responsive driving character”.

Initial layout and design elements for the 86 were presented by Toyota usings its “FT” (Future Toyota) concept car nomenclature. The first was the Toyota FT-HS, which was presented at the Detroit Motor Show in 2007. It had a front engine, rear-wheel drive layout and 2+2 seating and was powered by a V6 engine with hybrid electric assistance. In 2008, Toyota bought 16.5% of Fuji Heavy Industries, which includes the Subaru automotive brand. Toyota, led by project leader Tetsuya Tada, then offered Subaru to become involved in its new sport coupé project, by co-developing the new D-4S boxer engine, however, this was rejected since the design conflicted with Subaru’s reputation for high performance all-wheel drive (AWD) cars. This outcome resulted in the project coming to a six-month halt before Toyota invited journalists and Subaru engineers to test a developmental prototype. Following this test, Subaru agreed to become further involved in development.

«Not an ounce of original Supra in this design, highly disappointed.» From what I read in the article, it says, «It might not actually be called ‘Supra’.» Then goes on and says, «Toyota tells us that the Supra moniker is only but a ‘candidate’ in a long list of possible names for the new sportscar.» …. From what I understand, people are referring that it’s a Supra just because it looks like a badass sports car that Toyota came out with, and its been years since they’ve done so. Bottom line, you’re complaining because this new car doesn’t look like a Supra, when Toyota might of never wanted that in the first place. It’s not even considered a «Supra» you’re just inferring it is a Supra.
