When the Toyota FT-1 Concept was unveiled at the start of 2014, we had an inkling it offered a glimpse of the next-generation Supra. Truth be told, however, no one outside of Toyota and BMW knew at that time that a new-age Supra was indeed in the works.
Fast forward to the second half of 2018 and Toyota has been slowly providing new details about the long-awaited sports car and provided us with some revealing images. Select journalists even had the chance to test the car in prototype guise last week. Now, we have accurate renderings that depict exactly how the road-going Supra will look.
Drawn up by a member of the Supra MKV forums, these renderings show the reborn Supra without camouflage and adorned in a selection of colors that are expected to be offered to customers.
Will enthusiasts flock to the new Supra like the old one?
Perhaps the most eye-catching color for the production model will be a shade of red, similar to the color of the FT-1 Concept. These renderings also show the sports car in blue, white, yellow, grey, black, and silver.
In terms of the vehicle’s overall design, it is very similar to the FT-1 Concept. Viewed from the rear, the new Supra bears an uncanny resemblance to the concept and has almost identical taillights, a very similar lip spoiler, rear diffuser, rear fog light and circular tailpipes.
The roofline and shape of the side windows also remain true to the concept. Up front, the Supra gets a similar look to the FT-1 but due to its smaller proportions, doesn’t looks quite as appealing. Whereas the FT-1 Concept had the low-slung profile of a true front-engine supercar, the Supra is much smaller, has a shorter wheelbase, and looks much bulkier.
