If you hadn't gathered by now, the new Toyota Supra is kind of a big deal. But amid the storm of details about transmissions, engines and design, one figure has been conspicuously absent: a lap time at the Nurburgring. Turns out, there's a very good reason for that. Tetsuya Tada, chief engineer on the project, told Road&Track the hotly-anticipated A90 Supra is yet to lap the Green Hell...

Isuzu and Mazda are also sharing costs on the next D-Max/BT-50...

Toyota Mark X GRMN edition returns as a Japan-only taunt

Toyota has unveiled the latest work of its Gazoo Racing performance division, in the shape of the Mark X GRMN sedan at the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon. Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with the Mark X, though – confined to the Japanese market, this almost Camry-sized sedan fills in for past Toyota mainstays like the Cressida and Chaser nameplates which have come and gone over the years...

Toyota Australia plans huge hybrid expansion

Toyota Australia (TMCA) is aiming for one-in-five of all vehicles it sells to be fuel-saving petrol-electric hybrid cars, within a time frame of just two years. Based on current sales volumes, this equates to about 42,000 sales of Toyota hybrid cars in 2020, figures that seemed scarcely plausible even a few years ago given Australia’s slow take-up of environmentally friendly cars...
