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. Toyota is already considering two additional models to their sports car lineup, one that would be slotted below the GT 86 and another would be upmarket, possibly a Supra successor.

I would like to have one smaller and one larger,” said Tada. “One would probably be a Supra follower. Nothing has been decided yet. It would [be] like a Supra successor,” Tetsuya Tada, GT 86 chief engineer told Drive.

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.

Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda has confirmed his desire to develop a successor to the iconic Toyota Supra, but has also warned Supra fanboys against getting their hopes up. In an open forum with journalists in Japan, Toyoda said that while he “wants to see the next Supra tested in the near future, ” it’s unlikely considering Toyota’s current situation.

Toyoda did say that he would like to build a new sports car, “that is better than the Supra,” which is a good thing in our minds, because to say the last-gen model was a tad on the hefty side would be a gross understatement.

Instead, Toyota will focus on a return to quality, and on building the FR-S/FT-86 compact sports car, which has reportedly been delayed due to development issues.
