BMW and Toyota are trying to attempt the battle with world famous Porsche 911. The cooperation between German and Japanese giants is known from some time and the previuos aim was to create the successor of BMW Z4 and Toyota GT86. However as we read on carbuzz.com both companies have also another project on the line.
The new car should be rival for Porsche 911 and at the moment is called ‚Silk road 2’. It should become BMW Z7 and Supra successor, a baby Lexus LFA in Toyota portfolio. Its about to have 3.0 litre turbocharged engine which should develop 400 or even 500 brake horsepower. The car should come into market in 2019 so still some time to wait.
I suposse that cooperation of BMW which is famous of fastest saloons in the world and Toyota with Supra and LFA in history can give us only outstanding results. Both companies have also experience in Formula 1 which can be advantage towards Porsche.
