It’ll be called the Supra, and it’ll be “by Gazoo” – straight from the horse’s mouth.
The next generation Toyota Supra will be badged and sold as a Gazoo Racing model when it goes on sale at the end of 2019. That’s according to Shigeki Tomoyama, president of Gazoo Racing. Speaking with Motor1.com at a Tokyo motor show preview event, Tomoya said “the Supra will be by Gazoo.”
Gazoo is Toyota’s performance wing that manages both the Japanese car maker’s motorsport activity – including the World Rally Championship and World Endurance Championship – and also its most potent road cars. So far, the production model folio has been limited to the £26,000 ($34,000) Toyota Yaris GRMN (Gazoo Racing tuned by Meisters of the Nürburgring [No, really]), but that looks set to change with a series of models that highlight the brand’s sporting intent.
