Toyota Gr Supra Concept Heralds The Car's Return After 16 Years

Toyota GR Supra Concept heralds the car's return after 16 years

After years of teasers, spy shots and faint whispers, the fifth-generation Toyota Supra finally makes its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The Toyota GR Supra Concept might be a focused, track-prepped race car, but Toyota is making no secret that this heralds the return of the production car to showrooms. The final production model may still be a ways off, but the GR Supra Concept will be available in "Gran Turismo Sport" starting in April.

After four generations, Supra production ended in 2002, having disappeared from the U.S. after 1998 after years of slow sales. Sixteen years — or 20 depending on how you look at it — is a long time to be away. That's eons in the auto industry, and the Supra has a lot of catching up to do. The new car was only made possible thanks to a partnership with BMW, as the Supra shares a platform with the next-generation BMW Z4.
