Mr Schwerkolt has already previously stated that they'll remain a single-car team in Supercars in the forseeable future. Besides, they're not in anyway set up to start knocking out bodypanels of their own, let alone partake in engine development from scratch.

Plug-and-play Triple Eight customer gig works for them, as it does for Tekno.
I know that they're different departments with differing market agendas but Charlie has gone on record and stated he wants to expand his team I know it seems unlikely I'm just as doubtful as you at this point but they have a lot of funding the local arm in Australia of Toyota has sent a request to the parent company about potentially starting it up and discussing startup costs etc I'm saying that with a preexisting relationship Toyota as a company and Charlie wanting to expand it seems like a possibility it could happen but I'll wait for more info to come out and post it as soon as I see it

Car effort there local arm has apparently sent a request to the parent company seeking permission for the program it seems like the car would be based off the Camry and I've also heard that KIA are close to striking a deal with Walkinshaw for next year whilst Alfa may be coming GRM's way these are only rumours but if these happen it'll be a huge boost for the sport
That would be great

They would be considering AusGT or Carerra Cup.

Again, something plug-and-play.

They've said they want a DVS program and a potential second car if funding can be negotiated

And those would be Triple Eight customer efforts, too.

They're not geared to do their own development on parts, etc.

They other potential candidate is Walkinshaw Racing Ryan Walkinshaw was spotted at Toyota HQ in Sydney earlier in 2016 but that could've been about the walkinshaw car performance brand its unconfirmed as to what happen during those talks

Because they don't have the funding but if Toyota were to jump onboard it might change there business model

Wonder what's worth more. Waverley Forklifts spend with TMH, or TMH sponsorship with T18?

Penske / DJR
Walkinshaw
Prodrive
BJR
GRM

All been around for 25+ years, all proven car builders, all multi car teams, all race/Bathurst/Championship winners, all with name drivers. All without manufacturer dollars.

Yet the biggest manufacturer in the world wants to fund a single car customer team thats been around for 5 years.

Team 18 wouldn't be a single car team anymore if they got the deal they would expand to 2 cars seemingly with Todd Hazelwood or a younger driver and Lee in the other and remember Kelly racing was only 4 years old when they got there factory backing but Toyota also being linked with Walkinshaw

Akio Toyoda is the chairman, Tommi Makkinen is team principal and the car was developed in Cologne at Toyota Motorsport...

If Toyota were getting serious about a racing program I'd figure Neal Bates would get the tap on the shoulder?

Mate, I appreciate your enthusiasm, it's great to see. But, could you please try writing in sentences? It really would make it much easier for everyone else to read.

While I think it would be great if Toyota came to the sport, I can't see them joining with Charlies team leading the way, as the others have stated, there are much bigger, better set ups available that don't have a factory behind them.
