It seemed both prophetic and appropriate when Toyota showed its GR Supra Racing Concept at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The car's long hood, wide stance and gaping intakes looked for all the world like they were designed with motorsports livery and sponsorship decals in mind. But forgive us at Roadshow for never having considered that Toyota would actually consider taking their upcoming sports car racing in NASCAR.Yet that's exactly what's being reported by Sports Business Journal. According to the publication, the Supra will take the place of Toyota's Camry in NASCAR's Xfinity Series feeder program soon, and it seems likely that if that happens, the Supra will eventually appear in the flagship Monster Energy Cup Series, too. Toyota's Camry has been a mainstay in NASCAR since the Japanese automaker entered the series a decade ago.If the notion of Toyota's bona-fide sports car mixing it up in NASCAR seems a bit odd, remember that the stock-car racing series is no longer … [Read more...] about Toyota Supra headed to NASCAR series?
All new supra
Toyota Supra fans, you were not having visions. There really is a new Supra coming, which Toyota obliquely confirmed in the press release for the new GR Supra Racing Concept that’s being shown off at the Geneva Motor Show. Sad news is, it doesn’t look like Toyota brought the road version along for the ride. If you booked a ticket or a hotel (or both), though, the Supra Racing Concept is a pretty decent consolation prize. (Plus, there’s... lots of other awesome cars there.) And besides, combined with the not-so-spy shots of the road-going version that have been spotted all over the world, it’s enough to get a rough idea of what the new Supra will look like. Fueled by a mix of nostalgia and, of course, a heavy dose of love for The Fast and The Furious, sports car fans have been pining for a new Supra for decades now. And it really is coming, thanks to a partnership with BMW that started a few years ago. But the process of getting the car designed, built, and … [Read more...] about The Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept is a big, pretty consolation prize
Over in Switzerland, the Geneva International Motor Show got underway on Tuesday morning. Switzerland has no real domestic car industry, so it's neutral territory for the world's car companies. That's made Geneva the marquee event on the calendar, where OEMs bring out their biggest reveals of the year in an attempt to steal headlines from one another. Sadly, we're not there on the ground this year—I did get an invite from Lamborghini which we had to decline due to our junket policy—but the wonders of the Internet mean we're still able to bring you the highlights. And what an array of new reveals to choose from! There's something for everyone, whether you like pint-sized urban electric vehicles, four-door luxury coupes, or new hybrid or electric SUVs. You can even go all the way up to multimillion-dollar hypercars, several of which aren't even going to be road legal. Something small and electric for your commute? At the smallest end of the scale, Mercedes-Benz brought its … [Read more...] about Tiny EVs, four-door coupes, and a new Supra star at the Geneva Motor Show
February 27, 2018 - Written By Justin Diaz Motorola has been granted Moto G Forge, Moto E Cruise, and Moto E Supra trademarks by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, signifying that it has a few new devices on the way for consumers. According to the trademark listings Motorola was granted approval for the names of these devices on February 23 so the approval was fairly recent, and the company only recently filed for the trademarks back on February 14 so it’s entirely possible that no devices with these labels will be released in the near future.Previous reports suggest that Motorola is going to be keeping the same name for both its E and G series devices, so it’s still unclear if the company plans on releasing any of the models in the upcoming lineups under these monikers in different regions. If that were the case it wouldn’t be uncommon as this happens with manufacturers all the time. ASUS in fact just recently announced the ZenFone 5Q for the U.S. … [Read more...] about Motorola Granted G Forge, E Cruise, & E Supra Trademarks
