4-5 years is not usual for a sport concept to reach production.

Corvette Stingray concept debut at Detroit in 2009. The C7 debut at Detroit in 2013.
The 5th gen Camaro concept was shown in Detroit in 2006. It did not go into production until March of 2009.
The Honda Sport Study Model concept car was introduced at the 1995 Tokyo Motor Show. The S2000 went into production in 1999.
The Lexus LF-LC Concept debut in 2012. The production version debut 4 years later in 2016. Production will start in late in 2016 as 2017 YM.

even though I was wrong about the LC being the platform of the "Supra", I still thought 2018 would be the launch year as it will be officially 40 years of the Supra

Seriously :confused1: !!! It's been 3+ yrs since the FT-1 and we still have 8 months to go before we actually get something real and hearing it will be a concept does not make it better :bat:.

That timing is no surprise at this point. As soon as they announced another concept wasn't coming until October this year, it automatically put production in 2018 at the earliest. :(
Toyota has unveiled new models which turn up on dealer floors a few months later. It's possible.

But yeah we won't see this car in customer hands until late 2018, as a 2019, at best.

Would love for us to be proven wrong.
