With reports that Toyota wants to return the MR2, Autoindustriya asked Supra's Chief Engineer, chief engineer Tetsuya Tada, which manufacturer Toyota wants to work with to revive the legendary sports car. His answer was quite surprising: "Porsche".
However, the publication notes that it was difficult to say whether Tetsuya Tada was joking, but it is out of the question.
As Autoindustriya continues, Porsche has some successful models with mid-engine and rear-wheel drive such as the Boxster, the Cayman and Tada-san have tested the Supra in the test. Then it seems feasible that Toyota could look for another automaker with whom it can partner for the next revival of the sports car, but it is not clear if discussions have taken place yet. We have to wait and see if Toyota sees Porsche as a potential partner (and vice versa).
