2019 Toyota Supra Strips For The Cameras; Do You Like What You See?

The Toyota Supra is inching closer to production and the company has begun removing camouflage from its prototypes.

As you can see in the latest spy photos, the model echoes the FT-1 concept but features a significantly revised front fascia with larger air intakes. The car has also been equipped with LED headlights and upper vents that mimic the concept.

Moving further back, we can see aerodynamic side skirts and muscular rear fenders which emphasize this is a rear-wheel drive vehicle. Other notable styling features include a double bubble roof and vents in front of the rear wheels.

The Supra’s rear end is covered by snow but there’s no mistaking the sporty rear diffuser and the massive dual exhaust system. The model also has an integrated spoiler and LED taillights.

While the camouflage is still hiding a number of secrets we’ll get a better glimpse at the upcoming model when Toyota unveils the “modern racing concept” at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Reports have suggested the model could be called the Supra GRNM Racing concept and images depict an aggressive coupe with a front splitter, canards and center-locking wheels.

The production model will eventually follow the concept and reports have suggested the car will have a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that develops 335 hp (249 kW) and up to 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. The model is also rumored to be shorter and lighter than the previous-generation Supra as the car is claimed to weigh just 1,496 kg (3,284 lbs).

      Thanks, man. I was about to complain about the back end being covered in snow.

    Aww, what a cute little BMW Z3,4,5 or whatever the lil guy is called.

    Nice,for a Celica…

    • ErnieB

      Exactly my thoughts .. it’s not an ugly car but it’s no Supra ..

  • Honda NSX-R

    Looking good. Hopefully it performs as well as it looks

    • The Watcher

      Heard it laps faster than Cayman GTS, which is a 365hp car.

      • Honda NSX-R

        I heard it keeps up with the GT4 too

  • eb110americana

    It looks terrible, honestly. You have to work pretty hard to make a front-mid engine platform with that generous of a dash-to-axle proportion look that bad, but if anyone could do it, the company that made the Mazda 2 into the Yaris iA can. The 4th gen Supra (1993-2002) was a looker, as is the FR-S, so it’s not as if Toyota is incapable of designing attractive cars, but this isn’t destined to be one of them. Geez, I’m looking at that rear shot in the comments, and I’m picturing Qbert jumping up the stairs from the top of the taillight, to the step above, then on top of the spoiler, then back down again to the diffuser.

    • Darren Glen Hoeg

      I love it. I thought the 4th generation car to be somewhat generic and bland.

  • LWOAP

    The front end I’m okay with, but the back I probably won’t like. I do hope it’s actually an exciting car otherwise I’d probably say something along the lines of “It would have been better off as a Z4 Coupe” out of spite.

    I really need to stop being salty.

  • Zandit75

    Needs a better looking and bigger sized set of wheels. At least fill out the arches better. It may only be because they are testing in snow and icy conditions, but the wheels look tiny.

    • LWOAP

      Definitely looks like the finished product.

    • ErnieB

      I like it..

      • AEE91

        me too. I’ll take one in grey.

    • KidRed

      Too many fake vents.

      • Darren Glen Hoeg

        We don’t know they are fake. Why do you say they are fake?

  • Six_Tymes

    Not bad actually, Its growing on me. just needs a big, same style rear wing (spoiler) as the previous.

      Toyota is preparing a new sport car, is like the new Supra will be the Celica, and the new real Super Sport Car, will compete with new BMW 8 Series, or Nissan GT-R.

  • LJ

    Nope.

  • Six Thousand Times

    At least Toyota is still doing sports cars. Your thoughts, Nissan?

    • Chad L

      GT-R

      • Darren Glen Hoeg

        I don’t want the Supra to be a response to the GTR, or the NSX, because that will make it unaffordable to too many people (myself included).

  • ErnieB

    Honestly it’s not a bad looking car. But not what one would imagine a Supra to look at.. as I said this is a celica in my eyes .. price it right and it will sell like hot cakes.. it’s nicer than the z4 though ..

    • Bo Hanan

      Calling it a Supra is a bad idea. Especially since BMW developed it. Toyota will ruin the Supra legacy if they don’t turn this ship around. Just like calling the GT86 a Celica didn’t work with the Subaru ties. This needs to be an all new model. Take the name from the show car and leave the Supra’s legacy intact.

  • Galaxium

    Nose is gonna look ugly. I don’t like how the taillights are sticking out so much.

  • ErnieB

    BMW told Toyota.. look .. your cars are ugly and boring.. let’s help you make a faux z4..

  • Ray Filetti

    This won’t be a pretty car.

    nice at 45 k not so nice at 75

  • The Watcher

    335hp Base for 50K and 385hp GRNM/TRD for 60K, then they have a winner in their hand.

  • Matt

    Will proud Toyota fans buy a car developed by BMW using BMW engines?

    • Darren Glen Hoeg

      Maybe not, but smart sports car fans will. I’m looking to buy the best 2 seat sports car for my money. I honestly don’t care who makes it, as long as its well built, performs well, is priced right, and looks great. And it’s not like BMW is a company to be embarrassed about. Toyota could have done much worse in a car partnership, if its a requirement to push this car through to reality.

  • Howstar

    3 days before someone puts a 2JZ in one

  • getoffme

    So many misinformed people in here.

    • ErnieB

      I think we can all agree that this isn’t the Supra people thought was going to be produced.. instead it’s a okay looking car that was overhyped! If it’s more than $45k I can’t see it selling that well.. give me a mustang gt any day!

  • Darren Glen Hoeg

    I love the car. I don’t understand those that hate it’s looks, other than that they are maybe attached to the previous car, and nothing other than an updated duplicate would please them. I had a 94 Mazda RX7, and want a modern Japanese sports car of the same related caliber, and this is about all there is. And it’s turned out better than I expected. If those vents are real, all I can say is “Way to go Toyota/BMW.”
