A few months ago, Toyota officially launched a new sporty sub-brand, the GR Sport Series, in Japan. Built in partnership with Gazoo Racing, Toyota 's motorsports division, the GR Sport Series is supposed to inject a much-needed dose of fun into Toyota 's mostly dull lineup.

Back in September, Toyota introduced its GR sports car range in Japan in Japan with a three-tier system: entry-level GR Sport, midlevel GR, and the range-topping GRMN. Roughly a month later, it attended the Tokyo Motor Show with the GR HV, a droptop concept based on the 86 with a design influenced by the company’s LMP1 race car. Fast forward to present day, Toyota through Gazoo Racing is now providing a first glimpse at the more hardcore GR Super Sport, yet another concept born using the expertise gained in the World Endurance Championship.

For now, we only have this shadowy teaser to go by (see modified version above), revealing a silhouette somewhat similar to the TS050 Hybrid, which will also be exhibited at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2018. Toyota is not being very generous with the details at this point, but mentions the concept has its origins in WEC and illustrates “how technological feedback acquired through motorsports activities is incorporated.” In a tweet published a few minutes ago, Toyota said the concept illustrates a “24 Hours of Nürburgring 2018 vehicle,” so we will see it on the track next May.

Aside from bringing the GR Super Sport and the TS050 Hybrid, Toyota will also exhibit the Yaris WRC and road-going models, including the 86 GR and the supercharged Vitz GRMN hot hatchback sold in Europe as the Yaris GRMN. These will be joined on stage by all race cars set to compete in the grueling 24 Hours of Nürburgring.

The Tokyo Auto Salon 2018 will open its doors to the press on January 12, while the next two days are going to be for the public.

As for the reborn Supra (name not confirmed), there’s no sign of it just yet. It won’t be at the Tokyo Auto Salon, nor will it be shown in Detroit next month.
