BMW and +TOYOTA held a joint press conference in Munich this morning. While speculation that the 2 companies would share hybrid, fuel cell and diesel powertrains has been rampant for several weeks the surprise was that they would collaborate on a new sports car architecture. Back in 2010 when I visited Toyota in Japan Akio Toyota admitted that he wanted to revive the Supra. This could be a great opportunity to do just that combining the lightweight carbon fiber technology that BMW has developed for i3 and i8 electric vehicles

The two firms plan to extend their tie-up with the creation of an unspecified future sports car

It looks like this may be the new way of the world for cars that cater to smaller niches. First Toyobaru, then Mazda Romeo, now this. I think it's wise of Toyota to work with BMW. This should allay the worries of those that may think Toyota has forgotten how to make a premium GT.
