See The 2019 Toyota (Gazoo) Supra Go Snow Drifting

Toyota will preview the 2019 Supra with a concept at the Geneva Motor Show but that hasn’t stopped the company from testing the highly anticipated model.

In the latest videos from our spy shooters, we can see the Supra being put through its paces on a snow-covered course. This doesn’t go as planned as we can see the test driver lose control about 45 seconds into the first clip. The driver apparently decided this was pretty fun as they then made several attempts to drift around the track without much success.

The second video gives us a better look at the camouflaged prototype and it reveals the car will incorporate a number of styling cues from the FT-1 concept. The front of the model is dominated by large air intakes and slender LED headlights. Designers also installed a double bubble roof and a handful of vents which could be used to cool the high-performance braking system.

We will likely learn more about the Supra next week but reports have suggested the car will be powered by 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. This should enable the car to be relatively quick as rumors have indicated it could weigh less than 3,306 lbs (1,500 kg).

The Supra is being developed alongside the all-new BMW Z4 and it will reportedly measure 4,380 mm (172.4 inches) long, 1,855 mm (73 inches) wide and 1,290 mm (50.7 inches) tall.

    Love BMW but due to their involvement in this car it should NOT be called Supra. This is a Z4 Coupe that BMW decided not to produce (would cannibalize the M4/M2) and gave to Toyota.
    The proof to that is that it was engineered with the BMW Z4. It has the same side mirrors as BMW’s current 2-3-4 series cars. And in the videos its even testing in Germany with other BMW’s. So the BMW involvement will produce a nice car- just not the beloved Supra. Save the Supra name for something in house. Call this Celica.

      BMW are using this for its new z4. Do you even read the site? They have had many articles about it. Toyota shared development with Subaru for the gt86. Modern economics. Car companies work together in this modern time. Also you sound like a child. Genuinely a very stupid child.

        He is talking about the Z4 Coupe, not the normal Z4.

  • LeStori

    Drifting… Think that is loosing control and spinning.

    • Jay

      Yes, but it was drifting more than it lost control.

  • Blake Stafford

    The z4 and the supra will be in different catagories. Joint development is great. Without BMW Toyota wouldn’t have made this. Here’s hoping more joint ventures

      Without Toyota, BMW wouldn’t have made this either.
