Toyota GR GT3-based street-legal sports car is in the works

Toyota showcased its next-generation GT3 race car, dubbed the GR GT3 Concept, last year at the Tokyo Auto Salon. Now, the carmaker has confirmed that a road version is also in the works.

Toyota WEC team director Rob Leupen revealed this to the media. “Everybody knows we are developing a car, and this car will come to race in Europe in 2026,” he said and went on to state, “The date is in alignment with the road car side, which is following the philosophy of Toyota to have a motorsport-bred car on the road. This is moving forward at the moment.”

Leupen also said that the new sports car based on the Toyota GR GT3 Concept is likely to sport a Lexus badge. That being said, he did not divulge details of timeline for the launch of the GR GT3-based street car.

The development of the GR GT3 is in full swing. The car was spotted testing at the Fuji Speedway in Japan in March this year.
