We already have a pretty clear idea of what the new Toyota Supra will look like on the outside, but this is the first time we get to see its interior.
Our spy photographers caught a glimpse of the interior of a late prototype of the 2019 Toyota Supra, showing what looks like the correct dashboard for the new Japanese sports car. Previous scoops showed that the test cars were fitted with BMW parts inside but not this time.
We’re still not sure about whether the three-spoke steering wheel is the one Toyota will use in the final production Supra as it appears to use the same button layout with BMW, but the rest of it looks bespoke to the Japanese model.
The instrument cluster is all digital and probably configurable while details of the dashboard reveal what looks like a metal finish for the air vents and an infotainment display mounted on top of them.
The test car was also fitted with an automatic transmission, using a gear selector that looks like that found in recent BMWs as well as paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.
The new Toyota Supra will be powered by a BMW-sourced turbocharged six-cylinder engine, possibly a 3.0-liter unit with around 340hp paired exclusively to a dual-clutch gearbox. However, Toyota’s chief engineer has promised that the new Supra will be a quite different car from the new Z4, with which it shares a platform, due to their bespoke engine calibration and chassis setup.
Production of the new Toyota Supra is expected to begin in early 2019, at the Magna Steyr factory in Austria alongside the new BMW Z4.
