Thanks to a tweet from Mark Whitelegge, it appears that Toyota (or perhaps Lexus) will soon be introducing a V8-powered roadgoing sports car based on the GR GT3 Concept revealed last year.

How do we know? Well, the tweet shows a fully camouflaged GT3 prototype based on the abovementioned concept. The engine note does not sound dissimilar to that provided by the 5.4-liter V8 in the RC F GT3, itself an evolution of the 5.0-liter unit in the roadgoing RC F.
Furthermore, GT3 cars must be based upon a road car, and there's nothing in the Toyota lineup, or that of Lexus, that matches the menacing silhouette of the GT3 prototype we see here. This means that one (or maybe even both) of the two Japanese brands will develop a new sports car for the masses.
