Yamaha tease sports coupé

Yamaha Motors, one of renowned Japanese automotive manufacturers has released a teaser image of a sports car concept it’s readying for the 2015 Tokyo motor show later this month. There's absolutely no info whatsoever about it from the Iwata-based company, just a dark image with the outline of the car.

As we know, Yamaha is no stranger to the world of four-wheelers. Previously, Yamaha has been involved in the development of Toyota 2000GT sports car and, much later, in supplying engines to Formula 1 teams (1989-1997). The Lexus RC F and new GS F are powered by a Yamaha-designed 5.0-litre V8, and Volvo’s S60 V8 Supercar is also a 5.0-litre based on the old Yamaha-designed 4.4-litre V8 previously used in the S80 and XC90.

Then this Japanese company has introduced their own concept cars a few times. The first concept car created is Yamaha OX99-11 in 1992. The OX99-11 was scheduled to enter production in 1994, powered by a 3.5-liter V12 and would showcase the brand’s involvement in F1. Unfortunately it got canned due to its steep price (upwards of US. $1 million) along with the economic crisis that hit Japan.

Then in 2013 they introduced the Yamaha Motiv.e, a two-seat city car is set to enter production in 2019. The Motiv.e is created from Yamaha Motor's multi-wheel history and experience (2 wheel - 3 wheel and 4 wheel technology). That's not all, though.

Is it possible it will hit the road or is it destined to remain a study just like the Yamaha R-Car that was displayed at the same venue in 2012? We guess our questions will be answered pretty soon, as there are only a few days to go before the Tokyo Motor Show. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS]
