Toyota's newly appointed chairman has revealed his desire to see the forthcoming Toyota and BMW co-developed sports car become the next Supra.
According to Bloomberg, Takeshi Uchiyamada said the sports car should be like the Supra to avoid overlapping the Toyota GT86 in the firm’s range.
Uchiyamada said “It’s futile if we make something similar [to the GT86]”, but continued, “That’s what I want but it’s not me who makes the decision”.
A spokesman at Toyota UK said he was unable to comment on any future models.
The Toyota Supra was discontinued in Japan in 2002. Production spanned 24 years and four generations.
