Did Toyota Just Hint at the Return of the Supra?

CARS.COM — A newsworthy tweet yesterday did not, for once, come from the White House. The cryptic message, in fact, came from Toyota, showing a teaser image of a "modern racing concept" set to debut March 6 at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. All signs point away from a mere design study: The automaker said the concept "signals Toyota's commitment to bring back to market its most iconic sports car."
We're guessing that doesn't portend the return of the supercharged Previa All-Trac. Toyota teased a dark rear-quarter image of the concept — enough to show an indented roofline, bulging fenders and a towering spoiler.
Does that indicate the much-rumored BMW-co-produced comeback of Toyota's beloved Supra? (That's this car, kids.) The wing itself suggests as much. Asked to elaborate, the automaker didn't immediately respond to Cars.com. We'll know more in three weeks: Toyota says it will unleash "the full scoop" at 3:45 a.m. Eastern on March 6.
If the automaker does resurrect the nameplate, let's hope it doesn't pick a Los Angeles supplier for flimsy oil paraphernalia that needs constant replacement during service visits. Then you could rightly complain: the Supra's Cali fragile dipstick makes recalls atrocious.
Yeah, we just did that.
