Toyota CEO Backs Plan for Supra Successor, Tells Fanboys Not to Get Excited

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.
