Toyota Mulls Corolla As the Next Performance Model in GR Lineup

Sorry, Gazoo Racing Models Aren’t Coming to the United States

Expressive, sometimes polarizing, designs have begun populating its lineup as company president Akio Toyoda endlessly talks up the merit of sporting vehicles. While other chief executives focus solely on promoting mobility, he’s discussing the importance […] The post Sorry, Gazoo Racing Models Aren’t Coming to the United States appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota’s Supra Strip Tease Is Starting to Get Really Frustrating

It’s understandable that an automaker would want to prolong the unveiling of a hotly anticipated model. After all, building suspense is essential when marketing a vehicle that’s exciting but lacks broad appeal. This is why Dodge was so fastidious in its debut of the Hellcat and Demon, parsing out just enough information to keep us […] The post Toyota’s Supra Strip Tease Is Starting to Get Really Frustrating appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

We Hope You’ve Been Saving Up for the Toyota Supra

Toyota’s return of the Supra has to be the most exciting vehicle nobody knows anything about right now. We know it was co-developed with BMW using the same platform as the new Z4 and we have a pretty good idea of what it will look like in production form. But the void of technical specs […] The post We Hope You’ve Been Saving Up for the Toyota Supra appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota Unveils Supra Racing Concept as Possible GR Halo Car

Despite being off the market for 16 years, the Toyota Supra remains relevant as the brand’s most famous performance machine. That’s partially because the automaker never built a worthy successor but, even if it had, the Supra had already cemented its identity as an absolute monster before ending production in 2002. You’ll find countless hours of […] The post Toyota Unveils Supra Racing Concept as Possible GR Halo Car appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota GR Super Sport Concept Packs LMP1-Derived 986-HP Powertrain

Last month, Toyota teased a new sports car concept called the GR Super Sport, and we speculated it could be essentially a Le Mans prototype racer for the road. The concept just debuted at Tokyo Auto Salon 2018, and it seems our assessment was correct. The GR Super Sport Concept was developed by Toyota Gazoo Racing, the Japanese automaker’s motorsports and performance arm, as a next-gen “super sports car.” Rather than take an existing production car and massage it into a sports car, Toyota Gazoo ...

Dear God, Toyota is Building a Souped-up Prius

Toyota is attempting to morph itself into an edgier, bolder, and sexier brand — to varying degrees of success. However, much of the company’s makeover has been purely cosmetic. The exception is Gazoo Racing, the automaker’s motorsport division and new in-house performance arm behind Toyota’s GR-series passenger cars. Interestingly, Gazoo literally means “image” in Japanese and some of the upgraded […] The post Dear God, Toyota is Building a Souped-up Prius appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
