Toyota Supra teased in Gran Turismo

The Toyota version of the Vision Gran Turismo could be the Supra successor.

Video game Gran Turismo may have seeded a new Toyota Supra concept. And hopefully it will be presented in full scale metal like the Mercedes-Benz Vision Gran Turismo -- which was presented at LA motor show last month as the first of several concepts sparked by a challenge from the game creators.

The Toyota version of the Vision Gran Turismo -- teased only in a single image so far -- shows profile proportions that would fit a Supra successor, and is bound to feed the fires of speculation around such a car, which is already rumoured to be scheduled for Detroit motor show in Janaury.

Toyota and BMW are collaborating on a new platform intended for sports cars, and a new Supra would seem a logical fit.

If so, it would pick up the enthusiasm for the Supra successor that was previewed in FT-HS concept form in 2007, but then dropped when the global financial crisis bit into economies around the world.
