Default Toyota Outlines New Gran Turismo 6 Vision Concept, Sparks Comments About Supra

Quote:
It's only to be expected that, whenever Toyota talks about a coupe model these days, everyone's mind automatically goes to a replacement for the Supra, the brand's last (true) high performance sports car, regardless if it's true.

The same is taking place with this new teaser sketch showing the silhouette of Toyota's racing concept for the Gran Turismo 6 Vision series, even though we only get this photo and nothing else from the Japanese carmaker and the creators of the racing game.

Still, who can blame us for wishful thinking…

The Gran Turismo Vision project, which includes concept cars made from automakers, design houses and other unrelated brands like Nike, will be available as special downloadable content (DLC) for players of the game in early 2014.

I'm pretty sure Tada-San has said it would be faster than that.

Heck, I am sure I won't be able to afford it, if it is the Price range of Corvette or Worse...the GT-R. By the pricing Trance of Toyota Premium Sport cars IS-F, LF-A...... I say, I would realistically expect the new Supra to be 80k+
Oh and it only took them like 2 years (not 7) to go from concept to production with the 2009 FT-86 concept. Two years later the production Toyota 86 debuted at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show.

Yeah but it was released in 2013. That is at the least 4 years if you want to take it that way. The first 86 concept was back in 2006 or so

Um sales began in early 2012...

Are you talking about the FT-HS? That is a totally different concept. It was a lot larger and powered by the GS' hybrid drivetrain. Some styling clues may have been recycled on the FT-86 concept but other than that the two are not related at all.

Hope the Supra move from being a GT car to a true sportcar with back seats for kids.

A good pair of eye glasses should definitely be in your future.

Don't see how you could possibly see that the NSX was influenced by the FT-HS, they look nothing alike nor do they even have a similar profile, one is mid engined, the other front engined. The Mark 1 and 2 Celica Supra seem to have influenced the FT-HS the most as others have said, neither of those cars look anything like the old NSX or current NSX either. The FT-HS and NSX do have 4 wheels and 2 doors so maybe that is all it takes for you to think they look just alike or influenced each other. The only other similar styling design element I see they share is a flying buttress C pillar.

The original NSX clearly influenced the NSX convertible seen in "The Avengers" and current NSX concept which are tied to each other, anyone with basic eyesight can easily see that, the only other car I have seen others say may have influenced the NSX concept is the Audi R8 though I don't really see much influence when you actually compare them closely.




That silhouette of a possible new Supra they showed in Gran Turismo looks much better, can't wait to see the concept and it is much closer to what I am hoping a new Supra will look like.
