The Toyota Supra is continuing its slow march to production as spy photographers have managed to catch another prototype undergoing testing in Europe.
Set to become one of the sportiest Toyota vehicles ever created, the Supra was previewed by the GR Supra Racing Concept which recently debuted at the Geneva Motor Show. As you can see in the latest photos, the production model will be more conservative than the concept but a number of styling details will be shared between the two models.
Starting up front, we can see the Supra has slim LED headlights which carryover from the concept. They are surrounded by small air intakes that will likely improve brake cooling. The Supra also features a sporty front bumper with an integrated splitter that has angular tips on the outside edges.
Moving further back, we can see a relatively long hood, a rakish windscreen and a double bubble roof. A closer inspection reveals aerodynamic side skirts, two-tone alloy wheels and a compact greenhouse which amplifies the sporty styling.
The rear of the Supra is heavily camouflaged but the muscular rear fenders help to emphasize the Supra’s rear-wheel drive layout. The model also has an integrated rear spoiler, slender LED taillights and a ventilated rear fascia. Other highlights include a Formula One-inspired third brake light which is located in the rear diffuser and is flanked by two large exhaust tips.
We’ve only seen a few glimpses of the interior but photos have shown the model will have a three-spoke sport steering wheel with prominent paddle shifters. The car will also have a digital instrument cluster, metallic accents and digital displays for the climate control system.
The Supra and its cousin, the BMW Z4, will reportedly be built by Magna Steyr. The first Supra models are slated to roll off the assembly line early next year with a BMW-sourced six-cylinder engine. There have been countless rumors about how much power the engine will have as some publications are claiming around 335 hp (250 kW / 340 PS) while others suggest up to 450 hp (335 kW / 456 PS).
