Rumors claim that the next-generation GR Supra will inherit the nameplate as an electric sports car. Before that happens, though, an even more hardcore performance variant could be built to blast the petrol engine out.
Both rumors are Japanese best car magazine. According to them, the ultimate ICE Supra could reach 542 hp, which would be a significant improvement from his current 382 hp in his 3.0-liter Turbo 6. This is comparable to the power output of the same engines in the BMW M3 CS and M4 CSL.
Instead of the GR Supra’s name, it could have the GRMN prefix, which stands for ‘Gazoo Racing Tuned by the Masters of the Nürburgring’ and is reserved only for the hottest GR models. The name is a tribute to longtime Toyota chief test driver Hiroshi Naruse, who died at the circuit while testing the Lexus LFA.

According to the magazine, the so-called A100 is rear-wheel drive, with an equivalent electrical output of around 444-493 hp. The e-Supra also uses a pseudo-manual transmission that Toyota has developed for EVs, mimicking the feel of a conventional standard gearbox. Perhaps most surprising is that the two-seater takes the form of a mid-engined sports car, as the EV platform allows design freedom.
Good news for maniacs. The Swan Song ICE Blast is always interesting and the industry needs an affordable EV sports car option. I hope that this roadmap will come to fruition.
