Toyota has applied to the US Patent And Trademark Office to secure the name Supra, according to our friends at The Motor Report. With this, plus the recent reports seemingly confirming that the FT-1 concept concept will be developed into the next Toyota flagship, evidence is mounting for a return of the hallowed model with a name born because of porn.
There’s been no official word from ToMoCo itself so this could theoretically just be an attempt to plant a flag, but CEO Akio Toyoda seems pretty hell-bent on generating some wakidoki. Time will tell.
I just wish Honda was this crazy about their heritage.
Mitsubishi has to wake up too, before it´s finally too late!
Indeed, I agree 100% with you. Why not a new Starion? They could use the same engine from the evo but rwd configuration. I think it’ll sell.
So you mean the Hyundai genesis?
I really miss light-weight Hondas. It is a shame.
Well, the S660 and NSX point to some awakening, and they’re back in F1 with McLaren. I think the FR-S/Miata fighter will tell most clearly if they’ve woken up.
Likewise Mazda ASAP!!!
Toyota already knows that most of us have the advertising for the next Supra, in our imagination already. (GT500, Group A).
Honda needs to see some footage from the old Honda Michelin race series.
Mazda RX-7 WE NEED YOU BACK!!! 😉
Born Because of Porn is a much better slogan to sell cars than Born From Jets.
Also curious if this means the shoe company will have to change it’s name… 🙂
I thought the same thing when I saw the title of the article, haha.
the cappucino, the rx7 and the evo….must return……NOW
