Toyota, BMW Team to Build Supra Successor
|   Sunday, November 16, 2014
Toyota is working with BMW to design and build the successor to the popular Supra. The new Supra, due in 2017, is based on the Toyota FT-1 concept car that was shown recently at auto shows.

According to Car & Driver, while Toyota will be using the new vehicle to replace the Supra line, BMW will likely use it as the successor to the two-place, sporty convertible Z4 or it may employ it as the new Z5.

Quoting inside sources, the enthusiast magazine said the new Supra will cost more than any Corvette.
The Corvette lineup starts at $55,000 with shipping

Car & Driver, still quoting insiders, noted that the new Supra may be equipped with an advanced hybrid power team. That would justify the higher pricing, however, if the power team were to revert to a standard gasoline engine, then the $55,000 price would be too high.

BMW has not made any marketing decisions yet so it is unknown whether the new model it will develop on the Toyota chassis and frame will be an entry level model or a premium model. No pricing decisions have been made.

It is known that the new BMW will have enhanced performance and power, but it still too early to determine its market position.
