Maybe it’s just been that long since Toyota has worked on a new sports car, but it looks like their collaboration with Subaru on the GT 86/BRZ/Scion FR-S may have just been the beginning.

Of course there’s no confirmation from Toyota on whether or not a Supra successor will exist or even if they’ll really be working on a pair of new models to go with their GT 86. It’ll be interesting to see what else could come from the Toyota and Subaru collaboration, as the GT 86/BRZ/FR-S is clearly going to be a success.
