Given the choice, would you go for a track-capable sports car or an off-road-capable SUV? Are you sacrificing versatility in favor of impressing folks around corners or vice versa? Decisions, decisions.
Digital artist Rain Prisk’s answer? “Why not both?”
Massive all-terrain tires? Check. Two hooks? You betcha. Prisk has even equipped this thing with a snorkel and a roof rack carrying a canoe, as well as subtle step boards. The over-the-top fenders are a nice rugged touch, too. Granted, it won’t eat up corners as a Supra should, but it’ll have all eyes on it at the track anyway.
No imaginary specs mentioned here, but we figure that the 3.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged engine local units come with (335hp and 500Nm) should be sufficiently torquey for most purposes.
So, an off-road Toyota Supra. Will it work? Not likely. But a good chunk of this piece’s appeal is in the idea’s absurdity. Remember: No truly great car was ever born from an uninspired idea.
Think about it: Would you have clicked on a Toyota Supra concept with a couple of extra liters of cargo space or a more convenient steering wheel layout? Yeah, we didn’t think so. What other sports cars do you think would make for great go-anywhere vehicles. Let us know in the comments.
