This made it easy for Horns to emerge podium finishers for the very first time. The second place was taken by Siegfried Rousseau and Gary Bertholdt.

Toyota Motor reportedly contemplating on the successor of Lexus LFA

The world’s most popular car maker, Toyota Motor has been seriously considering on developing a lot of new cars based on the company’s new design language which is supposed to be very much engaging and offer superb visual appeal. Among these new upcoming Toyota cars are some much speculated super cars, which are supposed to the flag bearers of Toyota’s new heart racing design philosophy as well as astonishing power and performance.

Toyota owned luxury brand Lexus has had the long-term plan of a successor to the brand’s limited model LFA supercar. This limitedly produced Lexus LFA supercar might spawn an all-new supercar which is not only going to be the heartthrob in terms of style as well as in terms of dream performance, according to the Vice President of Lexus, Mark Templin. However, according to him the car could take as long as three decades before it actually hits the market.

Templin said that Akio Toyoda believes that every generation deserves to get a fabulous car such as the LFA, thus the company is working on an LFA for today’s generation Templin said in Japan before a program for the new Lexus NX crossover. He also said that at some point of time, there might also be another special car for the next generation. He did not however, offer any other details or specific time periods for the same.

Toyota had stopped the production of the limited Lexus LFA supercar back in the year 2012. Ever since, the Japanese auto giant has not had a flagship supercar model under its brand name. There had been several talks and speculations of a potential successor to the LFA supercar. However, nothing actually materialized out of those. It is also known that Toyota had contemplated to bring out a successor to the car. However, those contemplations and discussions of the company eventually did not become fruitful and nothing has come out so far. Though the company has denied these reports so far, now it finally accepts that there is actually a free place at the top of its range and it will like to get it filled up at some point of time.

The LFA’s total development took around 9 years, and the company took out a bare minimum 500 units of the supercar, which was a loss-making project for the car maker. Selling more units of the car would have helped make great profits for the company, but Toyota did not do that just to save the car’s exclusive tag.

The successor Toyota supercar would most probably get the powertrains of RC F’s 5.0 liter V8 motor combined with an efficient electric motor coupled with a superb 10-speed transmission. Lexus also showcased an LF-LC coupe concept model at the 2012 Detroit auto show, which the car maker has not still made hitting the production. Whether and when the LFA successor is coming, is thus still in darkness, but it will come for sure.

Toyota has conquered vast segment networks to remain on top

Toyota is an acclaimed Japanese brand; it has maintained its high-value worth for years since inception in 1930’s. The global economy has witnessed a major crash that first started in 2008, the adversity was visible at macro level, and it took a toll on global auto sales. Toyota being a top end brand fell into the recession trap.

The US operation of Toyota has noted an impressive 4.6% gain during the April to June quarter period. The revenue holding capacity is an admirable USD 5.72 billion. Although the yields in US are high, the market of Asia has not borne fruitful profits visible in Indonesia, India, Japan and Thailand. Toyota’s operation has not been effective in Brazil; its two powerful sources are Europe and US.

With phenomenal profits seen in attractive US and Europe markets, the growth is pretty significant yielding massive 40% global profits. Now a hot debatable topic would be if Toyota has the power to remain on top of its game. The sale output in North America surged to 3% and in Europe it is 7%. The Asian market witnessed a 2% drop in sales, the only logical reason that can explain Toyota’s top spot in US is swift production and quality.

Toyota has made recalls lately, and it is certainly a black mark to its brand tag, the company has overcome the adversity of recalls and continues to launch world class products. The company is working towards re-inventing its style quotient and is developing a new Camry model with greater fashion statement. Camry is a top selling model in US for eleven long years; Toyota contributed 5,097 million global sales. The enormous success value of Camry has enabled Toyota to retain its top auto brand status. The next in line is Volkswagen that took away the second position from General Motors. Volkswagen sold 4.97 million pieces and General Motors 4.92. The economy has not picked up to an impactful effect and Toyota predicts a lower than anticipated global sale forecast of 10.22 million units against 11million pieces.

The manager of Toyota Group Yoshiaki Kawano, along with Hino Motors and Daihatsu Motor Co of Toyota Group, are of the view that impressive sale forecast stems from the investment in gasoline and green car sector. Toyota is an industry leader in new innovative technologies like electric and hybrid car vehicles. The company is working on the fourth gen Prius model scheduled to arrive by end of 2015.

Auto makers all over the world are focussing on the beneficial impacts of clean and green technologies and so are the governments. The executive director at JD Power and Associates Mohit Arora said, the Chinese government is making room for strengthening electric vehicle technology with a vision to curb pollution.  Toyota has gained significant reputation across various segments, inclusive of hybrid vehicles. It is among the few firms to conquer every segment with victorious profits. It made commendable profits in US, and it will be interesting to view its growth output in the near future. It has the sustainable power to stay on top of its game.

Exciting glimpse of 2016 Innova

All New Toyota Innova

All New Toyota Innova

Innova is among the top selling models and a common sight on Indian roads, its vast interiors meets the strong nuclear family bond network in the country. The 2016 model is sprinkled with intense level of newness; on the front is huge chrome grille and classy looking headlights with sharper features. The door size and dimension of windscreen rake is similar to current model. When viewed from close, the next gen Innova does look bigger visible inches away from C-Pillar.

What makes the new Innova an exciting launch is the increased dimension, it sports larger measurement from C pillar and bigger windows, which means greater volume in third row compartment and also boot volume. The exterior framework of the car is new as well, engineered on a novel ladder frame base. Sources say Toyota many fit the car with new engines and the diesel vehicle is likely to be coupled with automatic transmission to enhance drive quality.

The due arrival date of second gen Innova is 2016, the manufacturing process will happen at Toyota’s established Bidadi unit. The company will launch the car in Indonesia by end of 2015. Innova has always been a hard model to beat; it has formed a close bond with the vast large family system in India at cost-effective price. Innova is just super comfy inside and has brought families closer.

Brutal competition has dominated the auto market; Innova is seen as a source of inspiration for Honda Cars India. The company lately launched Mobilio MPV to fight the fierce battle with Innova. Although Innova is a symbol of utmost fascination, the design structure is not superbly attractive. An image of the forthcoming 2016 model is up on the web, it certainly does look more posh than the current car. The model is covered in a royal deep sky blue shade, the side view is shown and it is eye popping at first sight. There is a neat strip of line close to the window sill. Watch out for the neat ridge at the bottom that converges with door border. The layout of wheel arches is trendy and sophisticated.

The 2016 Innova is a strong contender for Maruti Ertiga, Chevrolet Enjoy, Nissan Evalia and Honda Mobilio. The car will surely be a massive thriller in the market; consumers will be amazed by the sight of a more elegant and sophisticated Innova. Toyota has strategized its launches effectively, in the month of May it produced two best sellers, Etios Cross and all new Corolla Altis. We will unfortunately wait till 2016 to buy the new Innova, but Toyota has a lot in store, and many suddenly emerge with more surprises. It is a car worth waiting for and the expected price range is Rs 9 to 15 lakhs.
