BMW andheld 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

- Subaru is going to be peeved if Toyota is stepping out on herJun 29, 2012
- I think this will be a higher end car than the BRZ and FRS not a competitorJun 29, 2012
- 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.Jun 29, 2012
