The Toyota Supra, a popular sports coupe from the 1980s and 1990s, may be coming back. A new Supra sports car is in the works, UK-based Car Magazine reports. The popular rear-wheel-drive coupe was originally a spin-off of the Celica, and became the Japanese automaker's flagship sports coupe in the 1990s.

The projected coupe could get an exposed-weave carbon-fiber roof, and a rear spoiler made of carbon.. Source: Car Magazine
