Yesterday we brought you an interior rendering of the 2019 Supra pieced together using leaked parts diagrams.
Now, we get to see the real thing partially uncovered, courtesy of a fresh set of spy photos. We’re still talking about the dashboard, obviously, as the exterior remains completely wrapped in camouflage. What you see in these photos is the Supra GR racing car snapped by our photographers near the world-famous Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit.
Interestingly, the prototype seems to feature a production-spec dashboard. Of course, the racing bucket seats, OMP racing steering wheel, and roll cage won’t be seen in the road-going Supra. However, the rest of the package looks production-ready to us.
The dashboard, in particular, bears a striking resemblance to yesterday’s rendering. There’s one exception, however: the massive floating infotainment display placed on top of the center console. The CGI didn’t include that as there was no leaked diagram of it. Still, this confirms that the Supra will get a central touchscreen display after all.
Another interior highlight is the recessed digital instrument panel in front of the driver. The Supra also features distinct areas for the climate control and radio on the upper center console. As for the lower center console, it integrates the gearshift lever for the eight-speed automatic transmission and a rotary selector for the infotainment system. The latter is most likely sourced from the BMW Z4.
The rest of the dashboard is still covered with a piece of cloth, but it’s not like those areas are of particular interest anyway.
On the outside, the Supra GR looks a lot less extreme than the GR Supra Racing Concept unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Factor in the production-spec interior and this particular prototype might just be a Supra GT4 customer race car.
