Toyota Supra HV-R GT hybrid coming to Le Mans are speculating about a 'return' of Toyota's hybrid Supra HV-R GT racer as part of an assault on the Le Mans 24 Hours.

Without quoting any sources, Autocar speculate that the car - or at least, the hybrid tech that powered it - is still alive, but that Toyota may not announce any official programme until 2012 at the earliest.

We reported in June 2009 on speculation Toyota may be considering a Le Mans return and we suggested the odds of that happening increased substantially in early November the moment Toyota announced their withdrawal from Formula One.

This isn't much of a news story by Autocar but we thought it worth repeating here to add more speculative fuel to the fire. New Hybrid rules at Le Mans in 2010 have the potential to make the 24 hour endurance race a technology showcase for Hybrid / EV technology.
