And that too not that it wasnt selling well. In the US on eBay and the used car market in general this car is still hot selling.

I did spot a silver supra coupla months back on MG road bangalore. The sound is so clean and bass-ey. arrrggghhh no cam phone at that time.

Yes, we ALL want to kick you! These days a good twin turbo goes for 18 lakhs, IF you can find one.

Is this the next Toyota Supra?

Probably not. Itís the cover shot of a Japanese auto mag featuring some type of big-rimmed Toyota coupe concept that could be nothing more than the digital daydream of a Japanese artist. Still, itís fun to speculate and chime in with our opinion on what if this were the next Supra.

A two-page spread reveals a possible convertible version, as well as what appears to be a reference to a 5.0L V8 producing somewhere in the range of 425 to 445 horsepower. The roofline and c-pillar seem to be inspired by Infinitís G35 coupe, while the rear end of the convertible is a dead ringer for a Honda S2000.

Toyota is ensuring that the Supra will arrive very fashionably late, if at all, to a party thatís currently being hosted by the aforementioned Infiniti G35, Honda S2000, and also the Mazda RX-8.
The above is from 2006. Toyota has since made it clear that they have absolutely no plans to revive Supra, not even conceptual designs. I am trying to dig that report on Autoblog and will post it as soon as I can find it.

mayavi check this link it was posted by cyrus ...Sneak Preview of the 2008 Toyota Supra and Article | 2008 Toyota Supra | Pictures and Latest News
it mentions the return of a more powerful and stylish supra. the site of toyota also does'nt have any info on the supra. maybe they are being secretive about it till its launch you never know. keeping everyone guessing i guess.
