BMW and Toyota have been collaborating on what has long been rumored to be a new sports car for each brand. Well it’s been three years since they started working together, and it turns out Toyota hasn’t decided whether or not to actually go into production.
Today’s wallpaper comes to us courtesy of Nikhil Nachappa, who shot this FT-1 at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. Nachappa told us, “I won the photo contest for the concept cars category with this photo.” It’s easy to see why!
Welcome to The Drift where Jalopnik East rounds up the highlights from all around the Pacific Rim. In today’s highlights, Toyota’s successor to the much-missed Supra shares a platform with a new BMW, we finally get to see the interior of the 2016 Hilux, and the Mini Moke is back!
Now that the Fast and Furious film franchise has gone from that movie that made you do burnouts in the parking lot with your ‘97 Civic EX, to a full-fledged international juggernaut, car collectors will be looking to get a piece of the action. Now is your chance to own the “10 second” Supra that started it all.
This is Kevin Harris' '79 Toyota Corona wagon, packing a full JZA70 swap out of a
MKII Mark III Supra. The engine's cranking out around 400 horsepower, and it's wedged down into a car that weighs about as much as an ND Miata. It's fast. It wants to be sideways all the time, in every gear. It also has nothing but the…
From Car Buying: In the mid '90s, Toyota released a full-fledged GT car for the masses — a top of the line, analog masterpiece that not only took the world by storm, but became a staple in the auto community as the standard in World Beaters. It's the Toyota Supra, and here are some reasons you should own one.
Wanna feel old? This year, the beastly, twin turbocharged fourth-generation Toyota Supra will be old enough to buy you a beer.
Everyone seemed to get a really huge kick out of Peter Björck's obscene Supra-powered Volvo wagon the last time he was featured here, so I'm happy to announce that his particularly Swedish brand of crazy is back for more.
I want you to let those concepts swirl around in your brain for just a bit: Volvo wagon, Supra engine, drifting. They're three very different but great things that combine to make something incredible, like peanut butter and jelly and ecstasy tablets.
Or at least he used to.
I have lusted after the MKIV Toyota Supra since before I could legally drive, so I was happy to see it get some attention on Jalopnik lately.
Remember that movie about moving at a high rate of speed while being, er, angrily frenzied? I forget what it was called. Either way, that movie made legend of the tuned Mk4 Toyota Supra. But what's it like to drive one of those things?
Welcome to Found Around Town, where we feature cars we find in a city largely devoid of interesting ones because everyone drives Priuses or rides bicycles: Austin, Texas.
It's no secret that car fires are normally the territory of high dollar exotics, but as you can see this Toyota Supra recently got in on the self igniting action in a rather spectacular fashion.
After an amazing career in motorsports behind the wheel of some of the greatest machines to ever hit the track, we imagine hooning the 1985 Toyota Supra in the middle of New York City on a Toyota commercial shoot would seem like just another day at the office for Dan Gurney.
It takes the right stuff to make a great performance car and that was exactly what the 1982 Toyota Celica Supra had—at least according to race car driver/designer Dan Gurney.
This very NSFW video stands as further proof that even the most obviously phony and staged clips will draw eyeballs given enough footage of bouncing tits and tire smoke — especially the former.
Japanese sports cars, unlike that country's delicious sashimi, have pretty decent shelf lives. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Toyota Supra still looks pretty tasty even after 18 years. Its price and lack of a turbo however, may make you say fugu you!
Skip through the first :40 seconds of this video's terrible music and opening credits and you are in for some pretty excellent footage of Kenneth Moen drifting his Toyota Supra up a hill climb course in Lillehammer, Norway.
The will they/won't they drama surrounding Toyota and the building of a successor to the venerable Supra's getting old, but if fresh rumors prove true this might get shifted from a Ross-and-Rachel situation to a full-on Moonlighting. If so, the car will need a fresh new look. Here's one such speculatively-rendered…
