Toyota Supra Trd Performance Line Concept To Be Revealed In Japan

Toyota Supra TRD Performance Line Concept to be revealed in Japan

A Toyota Supra TRD Concept is on its way, and we only have to wait till February 9 to see it. Officially named the Toyota GR Supra Performance Line Concept TRD (that's the last time we'll say that, too) it looks like a racy Supra with a big ol' wing hanging out the back.

All we have to go on is the sketch of the car's silhouette, which looks pretty good. The folks over at TRD generally bring more to the party than just aesthetic updates, though. We'll be intrigued to see if any significant power is added to the equation, possibly enough to bring it in line with the BMW Z4's 382 horsepower? Maybe we're dreaming. Aero, brake and suspension enhancements are most likely a given. The sketch is definitely exaggerating how low to the ground it'll ultimately stand, but we're still excited to see how Toyota chooses to modify the Supra first.

Lexus F Performance Suv Could Be In The Works

Lexus F performance SUV could be in the works

Amid the wave of SUVs and crossovers that has crashed down on the industry, several high-performance sporting SUVs have washed up and started to fill a separate growing niche. It's an idea that Lexus is contemplating, according to a new report, with a possible F-branded utility vehicle focusing on either on- or off-road specialties.

At the Rolex 24 in Daytona, Florida, Motor1 learned that incorporating a crossover or SUV into Lexus' F performance division has been under "active discussion." That doesn't necessarily mean a hotted-up utility vehicle, however. According to the report, F could translate to a different type of performance on the SUV, specifically for off-road capabilities.
