Have A Look-See At The 2019 Toyota Supra’s Interior

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.

    Hey guys, before you leave a comment and start shitting on this car and the website for posting too many articles on it, I got a suggestion for you. Next time you see other articles on here about this Bimyota, and want to tell CS to stop posting about it since it’s severely draining your interest on it, start ignoring them. Staff will know that you guys don’t like this car, and don’t want to see anymore articles on it. Hence, they’ll stop spamming articles on this car, thanks 🙂

      But I really want to know the passion and sleepless nights that went into creating the aerodynamic and completely organic floor mats. *shrugs*

      • Honda NSX-R

        Yeah, but they still haven’t talked about the hard-work they put into designing the sleek glovebox, streamlining those beautiful air vents, and installing the majestic cup holders so why bother posting other stuff that we don’t care about? 🤷🏻‍♂️

      oh they won’t stop. that’s how car marketing works , automakers pay media to hype cars, in this case both have gone way overboard

        Even if it doesn’t work the way I think it does, I’d still recommend to keep scrolling 🤷🏻‍♂️

    It’s literally a copy and paste next gen BMW interior. Not a bad thing, but it’s a Toyota and not a BMW. If I were buying a Supra, I’d want some Lexus styled swoopy origami interior, not a clinical BMW one.

  • Even if this is a race car, it doesn’t made sense on why they leave the infotainment system behind. If Supra didn’t go into GTE, at least GT3 (I know Lexus had a car there) or GT4 would be alright.

    It’s not bad (also I want to not that the it is the exact same “digital speedometer” readout screen from BMW. (the layout it most typically seen in the 8-Series, just something I noticed a few months ago.), BUT I’m just not sure if it is with $75k.

    I think it’s the $75k price (for what we are getting) is what is upsetting a lot of people. That’s a base price (without options or ad-ons, etc), and that is a lot of money for a small car with about as much luxury (if not a little less) as the vehicle it’s based on. I wouldn’t mind this being the next Supra is this was around $45k-$50k.

    Toyota can do better, and if anything BMW (I personally feel) is holding them back.

    I always dreamed of Supra with i-Drive.

      Luckily, BMW has done a fantastic job refining i-Drive. It is the best infotainment system on the market in my opinion. The software is great and it can be controlled via the touchscreen and the traditional rotary knob. A lot of people like to complain about the “iPad tacked on the dash” look but that location puts the screen in the drivers field of vision. Audis new setup looks good but the location of the screens forces the driver to look down to use a touchscreen. I have never liked Mercedes software but their new system looks much better. The new A-Class has their next generation and it may be better than BWMs.

        I just wonder how much of a reskin will it be. Hell Rolls has a reskin so I can’t imagine Toyota’s looking exactly the same.
