In-house developed A100 Toyota Supra that’s not an EV sounds pretty great to me. The comment about being modular seems to open the door for a Lexus variant, or variants.
The balance of weight and batteries relative to sports car dynamics is what worried me about an EV Supra. I’m sure the day will come, but I’m glad it’s a little further off.
If it’s not being co-developed with anyone else, I have to believe BMW’s I6 is off the table. The question is what they’ll use instead - V35A is the natural answer, but who knows? If they’re aiming for 500hp, can Lexus get a version too please? 🙏🏼😬
I would imagine it could underpin the RC/LC replacement.
At this point I'm hoping that this is only the RC and Lexus actually develops a new LC too. For the LC successor to look really similar to the IS EV would drive upper-end buyers away. Consolidating the RC and LC would leave a lot of Lexus' current buyers displaced.
I doubt anything will be "based" on those existing cars.For it to be based on the RC/LC conflicts with what we've learned in recent months.
