Major motor shows are where most carmakers showcase their latest models and/or concepts, with the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit being one of them.

In the 2014 edition of the show, Toyota unveiled the stunning FT-1 concept, which has been heralded as the return of the beloved Supra nameplate. Naturally, expectations were high, and the sighting of development prototypes ensured the hype train kept chugging along.

With recent test mules starting to resemble a production-ready model, many waited for the return of the Supra, with next year’s NAIAS in early January being the likely point of reveal. Unfortunately, you’ll have to keep waiting, according to a report by Motor Trend.

Toyota Group vice president and general manager of the Toyota division in North America, Jack Hollis, said it was too soon for the company to think about unveiling the Supra. Shigeki Tomoyama, head of Gazoo Racing, hinted at a second half 2019 debut in an earlier report.

Hollis also stated the company has yet to finalise the vehicle’s specifications, or even its name for that matter. While the Toyota Supra name is being tossed around as the most likely candidate, it was previously reported that the model will be called the Gazoo Racing Supra, a nod to Toyota’s Gazoo Racing team.
