Toyota has submitted an application to the US Patent And Trademark Office to once again secure the rights to the name “Supra”.

Fans of the cult sports car will be hoping this can only mean one thing; a new Toyota Supra is on the way.

There’s some evidence to support a new Supra, with Toyota releasing a teaser image of a coupe concept for the new Gran Turismo Vision game, and later revealing the similar-looking FT-1 Sports Coupe Concept.

Toyota even sought to include some Supra DNA in the FT-1, with an eye on a possible rebirth for the sports car badge.

“Our team was heavily influenced by Toyota’s sports car past, especially Celica and Supra, and we sought to capture some of that history," Calty’s Studio Chief Designer, Alex Shen, said.

"It is an aggressive, track-focused sports car concept with a presence that has been amplified for shock and awe"

Toyota has confirmed it is co-developing a new sports car platform with BMW, upon which a new Supra model may sit.

The patent and trademark application was submitted to US authorities last week, following an earlier application in 2010, which was abandoned.

Toyota’s original application (submitted in 1979) expired in 2006, with the Japanese carmaker waiting until 2010 and then now, before attempting to renew it.
