The Future Toyota Supra Unveiled
The legendary Toyota Supra is one step closer to being back on the market. At this year’s Geneva Motor Show Toyota revealed the GR Supra Racing Concept and attendees weren’t able to contain their excitement. With insane features you would only find in a racecar the plans for the future Supra guarantee it will be nothing short of a good time. With a reveal as thrilling as this one, our Orlando dealership had to give you the details!
The Toyota Supra made a name for itself back in 1979. Being a spin-off of the already-popular Toyota Celica, Toyota had no doubt it was going to be a hit, but what they didn’t expect was for it to create its own cult following. In the late 90’s and early 2000’s, this two-door coupe was stealing the hearts of car fanatics everywhere! However, Toyota Supra production ceased shortly after. Toyota designers decided to go back to the drawing board to create an even faster and better car that could handle your day-to-day travels as well as racetrack competitions. That idea became more of reality with the GR Supra Racing Concept.
