Toyota chairman wants a Supra successor

Toyota chairman wants a Supra successor
Takeshi Uchiyamada has been telling people that Toyota’s next sports car should be like the Supra so that it doesn’t overlap with the 86 coupe, he said in an interview today in Osaka at a gathering of members of the Keidanren, Japan’s biggest business lobbying group.

Toyota and BMW announced this year they will jointly produce a mid-sized sports car as part of a broader collaboration between the two. Should Uchiyamada, who’s leading the negotiations with BMW, get his wish, Toyota would be reviving a model that was last produced in 1999 after a 20-year run.
