Toyota's Supra performance coupe looks likely to debut in concept form at next month's Geneva auto show after the automaker released a teaser picture for what it called a "modern racing concept."
Toyota said the concept's unveiling in Geneva on March 6 will show its "commitment to bring back to the market its most iconic sports car."
The new Supra is being developed in partnership with BMW. BMW showed a concept last year previewing its version of the same car, the Concept Z4. The BMW production model will be a convertible badged as the Z4. It replaces the car of the same name that went out of production in 2016. Toyota's version is expected to be a coupe only and to put more emphasis on performance.
The Supra name is still widely known among performance car enthusiasts. Toyota built four generations of the model from 1979 to 2002, gaining a strong following, but the automaker has largely withdrawn from sports cars since. Currently Toyota only offers the lower-cost GT86 coupe, a highly praised but slow-selling model developed with Subaru, which also markets a version.
