Lexus GS production and sales halted in Europe

  Lexus GS production and sales halted in Europe We last wrote about the Lexus GS one year ago to editorialize about the rumored death of the luxury brand's sports sedan. Now, Dutch outlet AutoRAI claims to have gotten confirmation from Lexus Europe that the automaker stopped taking orders for the GS in March, and will cease production of the Euro-spec model in April. In keeping with last year's speculation, AutoRAI reports the next-generation, front-wheel-drive ES will fill the role of the rear-wheel-drive GS there.What this means for the GS in the States? We sill don't know.

The latest images showing a near-production prototype tackling the Nürburgring allow us to take a peek inside the cabin of the two-seater coupe with its own bits and pieces. Previous test vehicles caught by our spies had most of the interior components borrowed from the old BMW Z4.

Our spy photographers caught a glimpse of the interior of a late prototype of the 2019 Toyota Supra , showing what looks like the correct dashboard for the new Japanese sports car. Previous scoops showed that the test cars were fitted with BMW parts inside but not this time.

Toyota Apologizes For Taking So Long To Revive The Supra

We get the rare opportunity to see the digital driver’s display and the design of the leather-wrapped steering wheel, which isn’t necessarily very exciting to be brutally honest. Behind it are the silver shift paddles for the automatic transmission set to be the sole offering as Toyota recently said the 2019 Supra does not need a manual gearbox and that’s why it probably won’t get one.

The infotainment screen appears to be sitting high on the center console, above the air vents and the physical controls for the climate settings. To some extent, the look of the dashboard resembles the layout seen last year in the Z4 concept, which could be a sign the two cars will share a good chunk of the interior parts as well. This nifty photo comparison below illustrates the similarities, especially when it comes down to the appearance of the center console:

The 2019 Toyota Supra Will Get A Dual-Clutch Transmission: Report

  The 2019 Toyota Supra Will Get A Dual-Clutch Transmission: Report If you were hoping the upcoming revival of the Toyota Supra would get a manual transmission, you are just setting yourself up for disappointment. Either way, a new interview with Tetsuya Tada, Toyota’s Global Chief of Engineering, suggests the new Supra will get a dual-clutch transmission instead. The interview comes from Infoseek via the Supra Mk. V forum, and a rough Google translation reveals Toyota’s global chief of engineering mentioned that the Supra will be getting a DCT transmission, further diminishing all hope of a manual option. Here’s the translated quote:[Interviewer]: By the way, is MT prepared for the next SUPRA?Mr.

Although the Z4 and Supra will share the platform, both BMW and Toyota have promised the cars will be very different from one another. From what we know so far about the Supra, aside from the aforementioned lack of a manual, it will feature a 50:50 weight distribution and a pure two-seat layout. The long-rumored hybrid powertrain might not make the cut, but a beefier version with Gazoo Racing branding could arrive further down the line as hinted by the racy concept car shown last month in Geneva.

Toyota is expected to unveil the new Supra sometime this fall, following the BMW Z4’s debut in the summer. Both cars will likely share the assembly line at Magna Steyr’s factory in Graz, Austria.

It’s worth mentioning the Supra could very well be one of the most popular cars shot by spy photographers taking into account the first batch of photos dates back to September 7, 2016 and a quick search in the database shows plenty of other sets have emerged since then.

Spied! BMW Z4 Caught Looking Nearly Production-Ready on the 'Ring .
Expect an official reveal sometime this summerToyota certainly disappointed fans when it brought a Supra race car concept to the Geneva Motor Show, only to announce we won't see the road car until next year. But according to the latest rumor, BMW fans won't have to wait nearly as long to see the Supra's platform-mate. Supposedly, we'll see the production Z4 sometime this summer. From what we can see in these images, there isn't much left to do before the Z4 is ready.
