Toyota Unveils the GR Supra Racing Concept at the Geneva Motor Show
The “will they?” “won’t they” cloud of uncertainty surrounding the production of a new Supra has officially lifted today.

On March 6, 2018, at the Geneva Motor Show, Toyota unveiled the GR Supra Racing Concept. Despite a 16 year gap since the production of a new Supra, the speedster has attracted a new generation of followers thanks to the popular video game Gran Turismo® and the movie franchise The Fast and the Furious.
Created by TOYOTA GAZOO Racing (the international umbrella organization for Toyota’s global sporting program), the GR Supra Racing Concept is a compact, two-door car, with front-engine/rear-wheel drive configuration. The large “90” race number on its doors is a historical reference to Supra’s codename and a big visual clue to the fact that this concept heralds Supra’s return in a fifth generation.

The GR Supra Racing Concept signals an exciting return to Toyota’s commitment to bring the Supra back to the market. Without a production schedule and Toyota’s insistence that the Supra is still in the conceptual phase, fans will have to settle for virtually getting behind the wheel of one when the GR Supra Racing Concept debuts in the latest Gran Turismo Sport® video game, scheduled for release in April 2018.
