2025 isn't anything new. The Zupra is being killed off because there are no plans to make a hybrid version. It does not fit Toyota's global strategy of offering a hybrid version of every model by 2025

1st it wasn't Tada, and 2nd that statement was made by Toyota Australia...

For the Australian market... 3.0 Only...

Separately, Toyota Australia confirmed there were no “short to medium term” plans for a cheaper 2.0-litre turbo-petrol version of the Supra to join the local line-up either.

Our 2020 models were 3.0 only. Sales target were not met so a 2.0 was added for the 2021 model year to boost sales. FYI, ToyotaUSA never said the 2.0 wasn't coming here. They have always left the door opened with their open ended vague responds. Paraphrasing here, but back in 2019 they said at the current time they were only offering the Supra with the 3.0.

Poor @Guff is really beta testing Toyota's part supply chain. Almost seems like he spends more time shipping things back and forth than actually building the car
