Holy Cow....dont tell me it will be a production model for the MY2015 LOL....

Just Imagine the Rage at the 86 Crowd...especially those who bought it on Impulses.

Now this ring the bell "Toyota promised to have 2 more Sport Variants available @ 2015 " Or something similar to that

I don't think Toyota ever said 2015. I'm not sure where people are getting that from. My guess would be 2016 as a 2017 year model.

I do know the new NSX is suppose to be ready by 2015.

Default Toyota Registered “Mirai” Trademark - Next Supra?

Click the image to open in full size.

Quote:
Word is going for some time that Toyota is working on a new Supra. Heck, even chief engineer Tetsuya Tada admitted that the GT 86 should have a bigger and smaller brother, one of them hinting at the next generation Toyota Supra of course.

Rumors came and went... word was that Toyota partnered with BMW for more than just developing batteries, but nothing physical surfaced. Then Toyota teased that Supra-like concept car silhouette for the Gran Turismo simulator, hinting that something really is on the works.

Now, several auto websites reported that the automaker recently registered the “Mirai” trademark, name that will probably be used for one of its cars. Judging by the fact that “mirai” is Japanes for “future”, we can only hope it’s designated for the future Supra and not some kind of keycar.

Searched a bit for the source that spawned all the reports and yes, you can see the “Mirai” nameplate having been registered here.

Well, I hope that we are going to see Supra successor. I wouldn't be surpised if they bring out the next smaller, cheaper Coupe, which is even below the TC or FRS.

As they said, one will be cheaper, and one will be more expensive than the FRS

Tada-san said the larger one will come first. Than we will see a small baby 86 car afterwards.

If this turns out to be the Mirai Concept, than feel free to merged threads mods.

Default Toyota Mirai is that you?

Pop Quiz: Which Detroit Motor Show Debut is Hidden Behind this New Teaser Photo?

Click the image to open in full size.

Quote:
While we've done our best to keep you fully updated and…visually informed about all the world premieres (and the North American debuts, but those don't really matter, do they now) set to take place at the Detroit motor show on Monday, some production cars and concepts have eluded us.

That doesn't mean they will all remain hidden from plain sight until Monday, or at least not in their entirety, as this cropped teaser photo that was just released by automotive spy Chris Doane proves.

We're guessing that the rear diffuser shot comes from a surprise premiere or a car that has been announced but not shown yet, and we have plenty of those, including the Corvette Stingray Z06, Ford F-150, GMC Canyon, Acura TLX and the Toyota Mirai sports concept.

So, what do you think it is?
