Oh, hello there. I will assume that you who are reading these words right now enjoy good things in life. For instance, a certain surge of joy potentially brought on by the appearance of the new Toyota Supra at the Detroit Auto Show. Well, I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but it won’t be there. Sorry.

We were highly doubtful that the new Supra would appear at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. And we were right: it wasn’t there. That didn’t stop us from hoping, though. It was Los Angeles, after all: a place filled with sun. A perfect place to unveil a sporty coupe. And a smaller show as well, so nothing really to steal the Supra’s spotlight away. No such luck.

Now that LA is over and done with, we can focus on the Detroit Auto Show, which happens in January. And there won’t be a Supra there, either, according to Motor Trend. From the story:

It’s too soon to unveil the much-anticipated sports car. Specifications are still being finalized, and it’s not at production levels yet, said Jack Hollis, Toyota group vice president and general manager of the Toyota division in North America.


Too soon!? Camo-covered mules have been running around for ages! What more needs developing? Oh, right: maybe they also need more time to pick a new name, since the new Supra might not even be called a Supra. Why don’t we all just start wearing our shoes on our hands while we’re at it?

So, no Supra in Detroit. Ha, maybe it will show up at CES. Maybe.

We have reached out to Toyota for comment and will update if we hear back.
