For years now, the new Toyota Supra has been the subject of hints, rumors, clues, winks, confirmations, photos and teasers of every child, indicating that a new Supra is finally happening. Og så irriterande som det har vært, jeg må toppe min hat til firmaet for å generere så mange historier ut af basically ingenting.
Toyota took a victory lap yesterday in a press release in announcing that The first production Supra will be auctioned off at the Detroit Auto Show in January:
PLANO, Texas, October 30, 2018 – Toyota announced that it will premiere its often-teased and much-anticipated 2020 Supra at January's 2019 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
Toyota will be offering the first global production unit of the Toyota Supra through auction with all proceeds going to charity. This one-of-a-kind Supra will be delivered to the winning bidder when production starts in the first half of 2019.
One of the worst-kept secrets in the automotive industry is accurate from Toyota's perspective, though only als uw definities van "secret" en "kept" zijn zo elastisch als om betekenisloos te zijn.
We already knew, for example, that the Supra would debut at Detroit, because like everything else about this car, it leaked, though we've also thought the Supra would debut in Geneva, or in LA, or last year in Detroit.
This time it's real, though some part of me kind of hopes the Supra never debuts, and in a few years we've got a pile of fresh new rumors about when, exactly, the Supra will happen, a car that definitely eksisterer, og vi har lige drevet, men en bil, der udelukkende består af at drive bil bloggere mad.
Anyway. Gonna you try and score the first one at the auction?
