2020 Toyota GR Supra: Here’s A Massive Drop Of New Pictures

The 2020 Toyota GR Supra is set to be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show, but be it the company itself or other sources, the cat is well out of the bag.

It all started when Toyota Germany sent two images after they signed up to join the Supra waiting list, and it has since grown into a sea of pictures.

With that caveat out of the way, let’s examine the photos. The front of Supra features three large air intakes and a set of slender LED headlights. We can also see a front splitter and canards which were revealed by an uncamouflaged model earlier this month.

Moving further back, we can see front fender vents and a rakish windscreen. The Supra also features a double bubble roof, aerodynamic side skirts and lightweight wheels that are backed up by a high-performance braking system.

Behind the muscular haunches is a sporty rear end which has a prominent spoiler and slender taillights. We can also see an aggressive rear bumper with an integrated diffuser and an F1-inspired central brake light. Other notable features include a dual exhaust system and rear canards.

For a long while, we’ve had a pretty good idea of what to expect thanks to numerous leaks and spy photos. Drivers will sit behind a three-spoke steering wheel and find themselves facing a digital instrument cluster. Owners will also find slender air vents, a free-standing infotainment system and a number of metallic accents.

Toyota has been tight-lipped on technical specifications, but Supra chief engineer Tetsuya Tada has already confirmed the car will be powered by a BMW-sourced engine as inline-sixes are one “non-negotiable attribute” about the car. In the BMW Z4 M40i, the engine produces 382 hp (284 kW / 387 PS) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque.  This enables the roadster to run from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in just 4.4 seconds.

We can also expect adaptive dampers and an electric limited slip rear differential. The model is also slated to have a 50/50 weight distribution and a body that is nearly as rigid as the Lexus LFA.

*Update 1 –  Of course, we knew we hadn’t heard or seen the last of the GR Supra-leaks, and indeed, Toyota Mexico itself spilled more beans tonight by (mistakenly?) Tweeting a revealing video of the rear-wheel drive sports coupe on the move. Our friends at Jalopnik grabbed some schreenshots too, which we’ve shared below, in case, you know, someone removes the Tweet.

*Update 2 –  Toyota’s new GR Supra debut in Detroit is fast becoming anticlimactic. Today, two more official photos, plopped online on SupraMKV, where a forum member citing a “credible source” also claimed that pricing for the straight-six model will be as follows:

Base 3.0 six cylinder: $49,990
Premium 3.0 six cylinder: $53,990
Launch edition 3.0 six cylinder: $55,250

We’ll know if those numbers – which do seem reasonable, are true in less than 48 hours.

*Update 3,4 –  Thanks to one of our tipsters who pointed us to our friends at Wheelsage, we can now give you a deep official look at the new GR Supra’s interior, the controls of which have a very BMW-vibe to them, but that was to be expected since it’s a sister model to the new Z4 roadster. We also get some – scratch that actually, and make it a slew of images of the coupe’s exterior.

  • Matteo Tommasi

    Nothing new under the sun

  • Is this a joke? It looks awful!

    • Aiman Al Habib

      Agree

    • Mr. EP9

      Nah, that’s the real thing. Just as we’ve seen with other vehicles with low res images “leaked” before official release; it’s going to look like that.

    • Six_Tymes

      I agree, it is bad. being hopeful, maybe it’ll turn out to be one of those cars that looks better in person than in pictures. key word, maybe

  • PhilMcGraw

    I know that everyone is tired of the new Supra but I have to wonder how much of that is the fault of Toyota versus all of these journalists and leakers trying to get information out to the public before we were supposed to know?

    I think we live in a world where we don’t want to be surprised anymore. I just hope we won’t be thinking the same way about the Corvette when we will already know all there is about it by the time they finally announce it.

    • Jack Frost

      Dude, if you believe that this and previous photos of this car are leaked, then i have a palace called Buckingham to sell you ….with free and clear title. If Dave Chapelle can stop leaks at his comedy shows I’m quite sure a billion dollar company can bodyguard one little car. What needs to happen is a substitution of the word ‘leaked’ for the word ‘hype’ and things will become a bit clearer.

      • Matt

        It’s a lot easier to leak images of a new car than you think. Think of how many people get early access to the photos – the photographers (and digital touch-up) themselves, the ad agency, journalists, car magazines etc all under embargo until a certain date.

        I very much doubt Toyota would spend millions developing this car and then purposefully ensure that the first images anyone saw of it were crappy low-res scans.

  • MIL1234

    so will you stop teasing it ?
    please !

  • ErnieB

    Please put the Camo back!!!

  • LJ

    Leaked = purposefully releasing a low res image(s) to hold everyone over until the actual reveal.

  • ace_9

    Oh, wow, that’s amazing! It looks exactly as bad as everyone expected from the tenths of thousands camouflage photos! And to think that underneath is a rebadged Z4 with a slightly different ECU mapping. Simply fantastic, future classic indeed.

  • Charles Chin

    JB4 prolly developing a tune for it now.

    • Six_Tymes

      who is Jb4 prolly?

  • Shtekeris

    Cool.

  • Roland Fairwater

    Not a fantastic looking car in red, but it could be worse. I think it would look good in silver or black (it would defeat all the weird styling afterthoughts that seem to be tacked on).

    I’ll be interested to see if this car ever reaches cult status like its predecessors.

    • ErnieB

      Cult status? Highly doubt it. Cut status maybe— when they cut its price or stop building it..

  • Dude

    I think it looks pretty good tbh

    • txsupra11

      Same here, and not forget these are tiny low quality photos.

    • ErnieB

      Ok .. it’s not bad if it was called a Celica.. actually would have been great really. But the Supra conjures up legacy and greatness .. this looks like a brz that mansory butched..

      • Subi-Rubicon1

        It’s exactly what I was thinking as soon as I saw it.

      • Bo Hanan

        This time around the new Supra should be taking on the GTR. This is a 370Z competitor.

  • Mr. EP9

    And there it is folks just as expected. Another “leak” and I see they may end up calling it the Toyota GR Supra. I’m not sure I like the sound of that.

    • txsupra11

      It could be just for Europe. Note, the leaked car is an EU spec.

  • Bash

    No class.

  • Blade t

    The comments section on the supra stories are the best..

    • ErnieB

      Lmao.. so true!

  • Loquacious Borborygmus

    Toyota and their FAF styling.

  • Ben

    I’ll say this, the supra isn’t what we expected and from behind the glass it appears to be a disappointment. But to all fellow car enthusiast, please be somewhat supportive that they’re still trying to produce cars for us. In the age of SUVs and automakers literally cutting all cars from their lineup, lets be thankful Toyota’s passion for the enthusiast is still kicking.

  • DMax

    Give us the price already goshdamnit!!!

  • Nordschleife

    I feel bad because I am neither excited nor honestly do I believe this is it because of so many leaks and coverage. I can’t go so far as saying I couldn’t care less but it’s just no longer news to me.

  • Rocket

    Points for building the darn thing at all, but substantial demerits for styling and execution.

  • Marc Gruben

    I’m glad the Supra exists, it gives hope to Toyota engineers and enthusiasts who still give a damn about the driving experience. But gawdamm, that thing is ugly. That has to be one of the ugliest rear-ends I’ve ever seen. Another epic styling fail from Toyota.

  • Merc1

    NO surprise there.

    M

  • TheBelltower

    She’s an overstyled pudgy little thing.

  • charlotteharry57

    Shockingly, it looks almost exactly as we thought. Overstyled and not that attractive. Guesses on an MR2 aren’t any prettier. Toyota has apparently totally forgotten what these cars stood for when they were originally introduced.

  • Blehblehbleh

    Picking up where Scion left off.

  • Rich Money

    roof needs to be taller. full helmet shape almost achieved.

  • NoSnarkHere

    Yes, Mister Frodo. It’s over now.

  • Lottaquokka
  • European model. I thought it was going to be revealed on January 14th.

  • Marwan Abdul Hak

    What I like about it is that it pay homage to the 90s supra. Fair enough

  • javier

    under 4 seconds or under 60 k and it would be interesting but 70k and 4.5 why bother, vette c8 ftw

    • ErnieB

      100% if in fact the c8 will be around $70k why would you even consider this! Even if it’s $60k .. for $10k you get exponentially more care for the money.. plus I’d get a mustang gt or gt350 over this any day.

    • ErnieB

      It’ll be 4.2 to 60 and $50k..

  • ErnieB

    Actually looks pretty good from the side..

  • ErnieB

    Fuggly As Fcuk..

    • Nordschleife

      Ahh thanks

  • john1168

    It looks just like I thought it would. The camo paint job didn’t really hide anything. It looks ok to me. It’ll be overpriced and if $70k is an accurate price, I’d rather have a Corvette.

    Is the car that small or are those side view mirrors HUGE?

    • ErnieB

      Or a Mustang GT500…

      • john1168

        Yup! That would be a good one too. Heck, I’d even love a GT350.

  • Bo Hanan

    Spotting the BMW Z4 Coupe. And looking at it now I’m underwhelmed and don’t think it will do very well. Especially if proced over $40K.

  • Tinky-Winky

    A bit short and stubby but I think Toyota did pretty good job when trying to keep it as close to the concept as possible.

    • Nordschleife

      And that could only be how it’s photographed. But I agree with you it looks just like the concept. But I remember this same issue with the Kai/3. We all want the concept until we don’t.

    • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

      Being based on the same architecture as the BMW Z4, it was always going to look a little short and stubby compared to previoy generations of Supra.

  • MarketAndChurch

    It will probably look better when it’s released. Just going by these pictures, it doesn’t look disgusting, but it also doesn’t look good enough for Toyota to ask for anything more than Mazda is for the Miata. In fact, the Miata looks way better than this. We’ll have to wait to see this in the flesh at Detroit before writing it off.

  • MarketAndChurch

    That actually looks really good. It needs to be a wider, longer car though, like the size of the 911, but not bad at all.

  • IT LOOKS LIKE A RENDER. IF IT’S REAL THEN IT’S JUST SAD LOOKING.

  • ron98

    u g l y

  • carlbolt

    And this? come on, Toyota, this is 2018, not 1998, at least give us some clear ones.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    There is something good and something making it look old even before it’s released. I had the same feeling about the GT86/BRZ and it is in the line of the front hood and the headlights. They feel old. But that is me.

    • javier

      i like the look of the brz, it’s not overstylized ridiculousness. The restrained styling seems to look better as time goes by

      • Wandering_Spirit

        I don’t disagree. I just find the headlights and the design of the front bonnet easy to get old and tired of. I like the rest. Including the minimalism.

  • An Existing Person

    It’s a shame that Toyota dragged this for as long as it did. I want to be excited for this new Supra but I just can’t.

  • ejd1984
  • BlackPegasus

    Reminds me of a Mazda Miata on roids.

  • CBV2020

    To win me as a buyer, Dodge Viper GTS like proportions (scale!) to properly distribute the aestetics, 500hp six and TRD wheel, paint and performance upgrade tid bits before the full blown TRD version. Those are some basics that would have set this thing off right! Did I lie?

    • ErnieB

      I agree.. maybe not as long as the viper but definite something more substantial. Hope they don’t charge over $50k for this with less than 400hp. A fully loaded mustang GT is much more car for under $45k and more reliable not to mention it sounds amazing. Hell, I’d take a Porsche 718 over this any day..

  • Brian Regan

    It’s alright enough, if a bit over-styled – definitely looks like an 86 that’s been juicing. I likely wouldn’t buy one (at least not at the rumored prices) BUT I can’t argue against another fun car on the market.

  • GoofyGotKilos

    BMW interior…

    • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

      What did you expect?

      • Belthronding

        toyota interior?

        • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

          Both Toyota and BMW are known for penny-pinching tactics these days. Given that both will be built in the same factory in Austria, I guess Toyota went for the easy option.

          • Jason Panamera

            Indeed. But even people who have never seen Supra, when they hear that name they can feel respect for this car in the air, but what they will see is an BMW interior. We all know that Toyota can make good interiors, even new Avalon has better than this car. It’s like new Corvette would get interior from Camaro. Some things just should stay on their places.

          • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

            I don’t disagree. Toyota looks like they’ve cut corners. It won’t go down well with fans.

  • GobbleUp

    Meh. Will be cancelled within 5yrs.

  • 284 kW and 500N.m is good figures for this car!! This will be tail-happy and hope to drive it one day!

  • fgclolz

    Ugly as sin

  • Vassilis

    It looks like we expected it to look. I rather like it. Reminds me of a TVR a little.

  • Paulo_Mathias32

    Prematurely? Toyota seems to be aiming for Honda’s record of sluggishness with NSX. There have been so many concepts, teasers, leaks, and other crap that there’s nothing left to hide. This only makes the public lose interest, like what happened to the Honda.

  • SteersUright

    Thats an very intriguing $45k sports car from Toyota! Oh wait, it $65k?! Good luck to you…

  • STEFAN LAUGENIE

    Pretty sure it’s somehow based on a Pontiac Fiero……
    (25 years of teasing teasers only to finally unveil a 20 years old TVR rip-off……???
    Well done Toy-Ota……..)

  • Da Only Skid

    Very ugly Supra. No wonder lightly used ones are $70k USD…you know, from 20+ years ago. Better reliability, Toyota proper, minus German break down. As much as I wanted to love the new Supra am highly disappointed with the collaboration and looks, much more so with an outsourced power train. Maybe toyota will realize this when so many are brought in to service. Shame I missed on my chance for an Anniversary Edition as a kid…

  • designer_dick

    It’s pretty much as dull to look at as the GT86 was when they launched it back in 2012.

    • Rick Alexander

      The GT86 was a smash success for Toyota, thanks to the aftermarket. I expect the aftermarket to be all over this thing as well. I’ll wait until I see it in person before writing it off. Personally, I like its understated looks, although I do wish they would’ve kept the proportions closer to the FT01 concept. If its priced realistically, drives as good or better than the GT86 with more power, there migh tbe a Supra in my future.

      • Nick099

        Looks? I’ll wait and see it in the metal.
        But right now it is a bad copy of a 2007 BMW M Coupe.

        Look it up.

        • Dude

          Well it is part bmw so that makes sense

    • tkindred

      The GT86 was a major disappointment compared to the concept car.

  • Enter Ranting

    Styling-wise, this car does absolutely nothing for me.

    • Krisnadi Imam

      yup, they nuked their own reputation. i wager a vanila corolla to outlast em

  • Brent Morrison

    It looks anorexic

    • ErnieB

      Nah man.. this looks like a a short overweight girl trying to fit in an xsmall mini dress and everything busting out.. damn it.. I just body shamed the Supra!

      • Krisnadi Imam

        i dont mind short n slightly overweight girl… just dont make em slutty… i dont like that…. brings back old unpleasant memory

  • Tan Lee

    They should of called this the Celica. Calling this a Supra is just wrong.

    • Eagle By Singer

      It’d be more of a disgrace calling it a Celica. Celica was far better than the Supra, not to mention the rallying pedigree the Celica had…

    • Bo Hanan

      I agree 100%!
      In 2020 the Supra should be in the GTR’s neighborhood.

      • Tumbi Mtika

        That will be $120,000, please.

  • Loquacious Borborygmus

    Fussy

  • Perry F. Bruns

    You have to love a vehicle engineered by someone named Tada.

    “And now, here to present the new Supra…TADAAAAAA!”

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      I imagine he is married to a French lady by the name of Voila.

  • Emoto

    I see that Stevie Wonder is still moonlighting as Toyota’s chief automotive stylist.

  • Nick099

    It’s a bad copy of a 2007 BMW M Coupe.

  • TheBelltower
    • donald seymour

      Bell really? Laugh out Loud.

      • TheBelltower

        And now, this will be embedded in your mind whenever you see one! 😉

  • FactChecker90803

    So $75K+++ for a 382 HP 2 seater hmmmm, how will it compare to the updated 2020 Base Corvette Stingray C7 LT1 Z51 Coupe, that likely will receive the updated LT1 V8 making 500-525 HP.

    • txsupra11

      It will be way less than that. Even the Z4 M40i starts at $64k.

      • FactChecker90803

        Based on average price range quoted on supramkv.com.

    • Dude

      Where did you get 75 from

  • Peter Vancouver

    The most anti-climatic car of the last couple years. I would be surprised if it’s still in production withing 4 years.

  • donald seymour

    I like it. Old but I still like it.

  • Merc1

    I think it like it too.

  • GobbleUp

    Fugly.

  • Jim Jones ©

    After all the hype for such a long sustained period I’d have to say that’s quite a let down.

    (almost equalling Subaru for their concept to shite STi a few years back)

  • Kagan

    What was to hide!

  • Kagan

    One of the world’s biggest and richest car company can not develop it by it self!

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      The question is why?
      We don’t want sports cars in any numbers any more. It’s all SUVs by and large.
      Who is going to gamble again on a sports car for the masses if you cannot reduce costs?

      • serge charles

        thank you, i wish more people would realize this and stop complaining because its either this or toyota pulls a mitsubishi and releases a supracross to cash in on the name. I would much rather this.

  • sidewaysspin

    That steering wheel really looks like it came from BMW.

  • Jeppy

    why tf is it an automatic????

  • Mr_Fanta_Pants

    *yawn* not even interested in this.

  • exeptor

    For some reason I don’t find the design neither old or boring. Actually I like it. And the engine – only time will show, but yes – it will never be the 2JZ. And at the end for me (if I ever go for such type of car) it will be the price. Hopefully it will be fan (the average ones) oriented. Just a reminder – the Supra Turbo from 90’s with the inflation cost over $75,000. I really hope that we won’t see such a price tag on this one and more like $40,000 (probably too unrealistic).

  • Incog Nito

    This car sir, will not cut.

  • ErnieB

    Nice little car that.. $40k-$45k should be alright. Anything above that will be insulting .. Toyota royally dropped the ball on this one.. Smh

    • TB

      LOL!!

  • LeStori

    Japanese “multi design team” styling as expected. Pity the all the design teams did not talk to each other. This is a dogs breafast!

  • Trackhacker

    If it comes in a proper manual, this will be an awesome sports cars I think.

  • Lucius

    Looks like a shoe

    ….or a piece of melted plastic with wheels

  • Honda NSX-R

    This car is getting more hate than the fucking Prius.

    • TB

      LMAO!!

      • Honda NSX-R

        Sometime I wonder if people don’t even hate this car and are just jumping on the bandwagon…

        • TB

          My issue with it has been the hype…this has been going on for like 6 years…be done with it and get it out to the public.

        • ksegg

          Hype and dragged out release aside, the proportions of it is just off to me. The FT-1 concept was gorgeous – this one looks so squished due to having to fit the confines of the Z4 platform.

          That and imo, the back end is just hopeless. It looks awful.

          • Honda NSX-R

            I don’t like how the side reminds me of the Toyobaru, but I think it’s alright otherwise. Expectations were definitely set high with the FT-1. The interior honestly will probably look more underwhelming than the exterior. I’m actually excited to see the aftermarket scene for this car, they’ll probably make better looking body kits for this car, not to mention the possible tuning potential

    • sidewaysspin

      Looks old but also looks nice, imo.

      • Honda NSX-R

        To me the side looks too much like the Toyobaru but I like everything else

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Shame.

  • TB

    Kind of reminds me of a 350Z…what was all the hub-bub about?

  • DMax

    Too many haters on the internet, most probably can’t even afford a beater miata and yet they say they’re not interested in this car lmao gtfoh. I wish success to this car and Toyota, in today’s age of SUV craze I welcome every sports car we get.

    • Lucius

      At an estimated $65k, I can afford one of these…but bought a Camaro ZL1 instead. Needs to be $45k as it’ll compete with the lesser pony cars performance wise. Plus, with a BMW engine, it’ll be in the shop a lot.

      • assassingtr

        Lol for every sports car there is; there is a guy who will post up he bought a Muscle car with better performance. I’ve had a 2012 Mustang GT and a BMW 2005 E46 M3 and I’ll be honest; the mustang was in the shop way more. My point is, your/my opinion is formed over your small sample size of experience. There’s no way to know how this Supra BMW engine will perform and last until people use them.

        • ErnieB

          It will perform, but the point is that they have made a huge stink about it and hyped like it was a super car. It’s a nice small agile sports car, but for all the hype it is just a small agile sports car that looks like your average small agile sports car. The Porsche 718 is a better small sports car.

          • Lucius

            Well said. We waited nearly a decade for this???

          • assassingtr

            Some BMW’s can be fragile I’ll give you that but I wouldn’t count this toyota out. Especially given that’s what Toyota is good about.. quality control. ErnieB yeah I mean it’s not a porsche and I don’t think I’d buy a supra but I imagine it will have some alfa qualities to it. It’s a curvy good looking car in person I bet; the photos make it look fatter than it really is. Sort of like how 911’s don’t photograph well.

          • Lucius

            They’re not fragile…they’re shit.

          • assassingtr

            Of course Sir, please tell me how much your ZL1 whips on 911’s and makes you so popular at the track. Gotta get the boys attention somehow.

          • Lucius

            Motor Trend tested the ZL1 faster than a 911 Turbo S.
            But because I don’t have self-esteem issues I wasn’t compelled to buy it based on how it performs in comparison to other cars. I simply wanted the best car for my money.

            None of the above changes the fact that BMWs are shit.

          • assassingtr

            Oh yes. Of course. You’re definitely right. Track times and speed figures are the only credential to make the best car. Please, Tell me more.

            Also, I won’t argue that BMW’s are great, but I would argue they’re not shit either. However I would argue that I’d take a Turbo S over a ZL1 any day. But I’m more or less biased since I own a GTS.

          • Lucius

            I guess I’m jaded because I’ve owned so many cars over the years…even Porsche’s and BMWs (even an ‘89 Supra Turbo, remember those? LOVED that car)…I’m simply not going to spend ZL1 money for ecoboost mustang performance. Especially when it looks like a shoe. It’s not likely to be reliable either…regardless of what you think of Toyota, they aren’t building it. BMW is. It’ll sell good at first then fall off a cliff…it’ll remain in the market largely unchanged for 6-8 years as they desperately try to recoup their development costs. There will be no successor.

          • assassingtr

            Well now you’re speaking my language. I always wanted the 89 Supra’s in highschool, but ended up with a 82 Celica supra instead. Miss that car. Toyota is very insulated from the wants of their consumers. They’ll never listen if their customer wants a successor or not. That being said, if BMW is building it then it will handle amazing at least.

          • Axel Cortez

            it would be built by Magna Steyr afaik. Platform, underpinnings and interior are by bmw as a past BMW owner that doesn’t inspire confidence in quality over time.

            depending on price it might be a good choice, honestly I would rather have a 30ish thousand gt86 or brz with 300hp

          • ErnieB

            I am thinking it’ll look way better in person myself as well.. I just hope they don’t price it like a Porsche 718 because it’ll have a hard time competing I think. If it’s in the mid $40k then I think it’ll be a compelling choice.. again we are just speculating and won’t know for sure until next week I assume. Still it’s kinda fun seeing all of the comments and trolling— I have trolled it too.. guilty as charged 😀

          • assassingtr

            It’s probably going to be another F type scenario will it will be a badass choice for used car market but painfully expensive brand new.

          • ErnieB

            I forgot the Ftype.. but man the F type does sound way better and in my opinion nicer to look at.

          • assassingtr

            Yeah it sounds properly fantastic. Even the V6 I test drove made me feel excited. (It might actually be the better choice, the v8 was a bit over the top)

          • ErnieB

            The V6 is where it’s at.. it sounds amazing!

          • assassingtr

            Not at all, FT1 concept came out in 2014. So 5 years from concept car to production inception. Not bad overall.

          • Lucius

            FT1 concept was result of nearly 7 years of hype and teasing going back to intro of Nissan GTR in NA.

            Thanks for playing

          • assassingtr

            LOL Playing? I remember how long the GTR was teased for but. I’m not sure you noticed this but; Toyota is a different car company. I know it’s hard for you to differentiate two fortune 500 companies but they don’t cross pollinate. Thanks for run of intelligent conversation while it lasted Son.

        • Lucius

          I used to sell BMWs at one of the country’s biggest dealers…my sample size for BMWs breaking down a lot is in the 1000s.
          Had an ‘06 Mustang GT and a ‘12 GT500…both were perfect. Admittedly, with a sample size of 2, jury on Fords is still out.

      • Brent Morrison

        I’d rather have a Bugatti Chiron, I already have one in my garage and placed an order for my Aventador SVJ

        • Lucius

          I get what you’re doing there, but I was responding to a comment claiming no one slagging this car off is successful enough to buy one…just making the point that I can buy one, but won’t because it’s kinda meh

      • ErnieB

        Wise choice.. the zl1 will dust this toy car..

    • assassingtr

      Exactly, any major sports car introduced into the market is a big win for consumers. People here just have too many years of negativity beaten into their lives.

    • ksegg

      That’s just mean. Plenty of people here can afford nice cars. The hate is not unwarranted.

      Personally I’m ordering a new M2 Competition instead, because if I’m buying a BMW, it might as well be from BMW, not Toyota.

      • DMax

        Yes there was a lot of hype for it, but we have to wait and see if it lives up to it or not, no need to be an ass about it. I’m hoping it’s so good haters will have to eat their hats.

        • ksegg

          I think the hate is more directed towards it being dragged out so long. And it being based on a BMW, lol.

    • Brent Morrison

      LOL most of the people here are just kids living in their mom’s basement

  • jaykit

    Reminds me in some ways of a modern Mitsubishi FTO and 350Z put together. I wish they would have gone back to the roots a bit more.

  • Brent Morrison

    The rear looks so…. anorexic.

  • Zizou

    Class segment that was cultivated is not same with previous Supra. But this Supra will be a legend if the quality overall close with class segment that was cultivated previous Supra.

  • getoffme

    You all love being trolled by Toyota.

    • Smith

      … and obviously so do you, as you are here commenting!

  • Smith

    The Supra is on a level stratospheres higher that the BMW version, there is no comparison. This is a great looking car and took 10 years less to get to market than the Honda NSX, so quite the achievement all round.

    • ErnieB

      Yeah.. and the mustang, challenger, and Camaro drivers will still call you out for driving a ricer fart can..

      • getoffme

        Pony cars are for poseur drivers like yourself.

        • ErnieB

          Lmao

    • Nick099

      It’s a 2007 BMW M Coupe!

      This ain’t no original design.

    • Matt

      So much BS in one post… how can you possibly claim the Supra is ‘stratospheres higher’ than the Z4 when A) it is basically the same platform and engine/gearbox, and B) you haven’t driven one or have any idea what changes Toyota made to the car.

      And it’s hardly an achievement how long Toyota took to get this to market considering they had help from BMW and still took much longer than anyone thought they would.

      Let’s just wait and see what the Supra is like (and it might be amazing) before getting all Toyota fanboy on us. This is of course the LEAST Toyota car they make, based on engineering DNA.

  • Kagan

    If correct pictures: the bad part is the headlights and arrow nose otherwise it would be nicer!

  • 31/12/2999

    Lol

  • Dennis James

    The design looks to be for a 10-year old car, probably due to so many delays. I can’t see a lot of sales for this.

  • SteersUright

    Pricing is actually reasonable, thank goodness. However, the car looks like it was left out in the sun too long and shrank. Just a few more inches of width would do so much to help the proportion and fussy detailing look far more elegant, probably with interior space too. Also, the wheels look small due to too much car above them (the wheel well doesnt go high enough into the body). Lastly, for a front-mid engine layout, why on earth is there so much frontal overhang? If it was trimmed back by about half of its length, the car would look so much better.
    That said, the video does get me a bit excited for this. When they get discounted to $40k I might look at one of these.

    • Tim Manning

      I was wondering why the wheels look so small in these new “leaked” pictures than the others ones that were “leaked” on Friday. Different picture quality I guess.

      • txsupra11

        I think those are the standard 18 inch wheels.

  • Tim Manning

    You guys remember when the price was supposed to be $63,500 for one of these?

    • Benjamin B.

      Pricing is not bad considering it’s for the twin turbo inline 6 engine. I wonder if Toyota will offer the Supra with the BMW 2L twin turbo engine. That vehicle would start from late $30s I believe.

    • txsupra11

      Just wait and see 😉

  • SpongeBob99Swell

    Shut up and take my money!

    • Bo Hanan

      To your point- This will be an instant collectible due to the controversy surrounding its “biracial” parents and it’s contentious gestation. This car will not sell well because of the price. But in 10 years, (5 years after Toyota discontinues it) everybody will want one.

  • Matt

    Wow you hate BMW that much huh? Even though this engine is amazing. Sad.

  • Six Thousand Times

    I dunno, the early drives have been positive. It’s one of the longest leaks since the NSX and it’s a Toyota by BMW. I’m of two minds about it but in this world where almost everything else is an SUV, I think I like it.

  • Dude

    People saying that this would be $75k should feel pretty dumb right about now

    • Mike anonymous

      You could probably get it up to that much in options,. probably.

  • ErnieB

    With discounts in about 1 year you’ll see them for $45k.. not bad.. it’s might have a bright future now.. I am now forced to like it a little a bit.. not a whole lot though..lol

  • designer_dick

    The interior is pure BMW. The steering wheel, audio controls and door handles are straight out of the Z4, with the HVAC controls seemingly borrowed from the outgoing 1 & 3-Series. I’m actually surprised that the gear selector and control wheel for the infotainment seem to be a little different.

    • BlackPegasus

      Yeah most definitely from BMW. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not at this point. I guess I wanted something different for this car. Not some version of Frankenstein’s monster.

      • ErnieB

        It’s a kit car..

    • ErnieB

      It’s like they put a kit exterior on a bmw..sad.. you are buying a kit car..thinking about it .. it’s pathetic!

  • ErnieB

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2c7ecc5686efdf5b4b2e9d83ee70c1faf6409a12156960715a643acde978764d.jpg

    Lower it, tune it, after market exhaust, and slap a big ass wing spoiler ..

  • Callanish

    When the original FT-1 prototype was released, It looked like a car starting at $70,000 and would have been well worth it based on its presence. When the new pictures of the production Supra came out, I figured it looked more like a $45,000 car. I wasn’t too far off on pricing, but I still wish the production model looked closer to the Prototype rather than, what looks to me, like an updated Z4 coupe.

    • Jason Miller

      Because they took that original design and shrank it down to fit the BMW chassis they were given and it threw the proportions off. Now it looks goofy.

    • txsupra11

      A former engineer on the project said if they were to make it look close to the FT1 that it would cost well over $100k.

      • Tumbi Mtika

        I do think this signifies officially that the golden age of Japan is over. It simply is not feasible anymore to have these extraordinary Japanese supercar fighters at a truly affordable price anymore. Even the used market is reacting to this which is why those original cars are so (rather ironically) prohibitively expensive for most now. It’s made the Supra project a bit harder for Toyota too, I imagine. On one hand, it has to make money to justify r&d, but on the other hand, it has to live up to the legend of old, and will be measured to the A80 in every way, whether one believes it’s fair or not. Unfortunately for many, it’s just not that easy to split the difference anymore. It would be at least 110K if Toyota went full send on this, which then would bring another type of scrutiny to the project.

        There was no winning with this one, and if anything, Nissan got lucky releasing the GT-R when they did. Hondawent the same route as Nissan in trying to live up to the mission statement of the models of old, and got crucified for it. However, Nissan might be paying the price for this now. Nissan has to keep up with the competition now, which will make the R36 even more expensive, which could explain why Nissan has kept the R35 on sale for more than a decade. This serves as an important warning to Mazda– These nameplates are loaded grenades now. There is only one of two ways that they can go about developing the new RX model(if they even want to):

        Team up to cut costs on development and maximize profits, but be unable to fight the big guns like the old model

        OR

        Go straight for the head, and make a supercar. But you can’t fall behind or slip up anywhere, and you have to wager your R&D in an already competitive market with even less guarantee of strong sales from the get go.

      • Tumbi Mtika

        The days of the affordable Japanese supercar are over.

    • Sybill Julian

      yeah, getting smaller and smaller. I nearly forgot how big the MKIV is…

  • 31/12/2999

    As Toyota fan I expected more beauty in this car.

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      Nothing they have made in the last ten years should have warranted that expectation.

      • Ben

        Lexus LC500. Yes, I know, its under the Lexus brand, but same house, different room. Also, the RC-F ain’t too bad looking either.

        • Loquacious Borborygmus

          The RC is a gussied up 86.

          • Ben

            Um…the 400hp+ RCF is a gussied up 86? I guess I can see that logic. I mean, a Hellcat is just a puffed up Dart or a Wraith is a 3-series with nicer seats.

          • Loquacious Borborygmus

            See? Now you’re getting it!

  • Toyota should stop this oh-the-photos-leaked-by-accident-but-stay-tuned marketing bullsh*t. It’s just giving damage to the brand.

  • Enoch Gabriel Gonzales

    Is that a plastic cladding attached to the door panel to make way for the side intake? Do they really have to do that?

  • Wandering_Spirit

    I like the side…..much less the rest. There is something that is underdesigned in the front and overdesigned in the rear. A pity. I hope seen in real is better. Perhaps with a different color, too.

  • rockyroad

    Are you sure it’s a Toyota? ’cause there is a lot of BMW all over this.

    • PK

      toyota and bmw partnered up for the supra i think.

      • Ben

        I believe he knew that. He was just using sarcasm,

    • brn

      You can tell it’s not a Toyota, because it’s missing the big mouth grill.

  • Jason Panamera

    Nice BMW that Supra is. I am waiting for next gen Dodge Viper based on Mercedes SLC.

    • pxsupply

      Assuming you are joking….. 🙂

  • GobbleUp

    Ugly.

  • Wayne Alan Carr Heyes

    That interior is YEARS AHEAD of the crap Yaris

    Toyota needs to hurry up and replace the Yaris

  • Craig

    Starting at 50 big ones! Yikes. I think I’ll shop around.

  • sidewaysspin

    It has character, which means it’s ugly.

  • Yishay

    It gets uglier by the day

    • Anton Yuri Calderon

      Yes it does.

  • Jørn-tommy Skjellnes

    Thats a fair price, i belive it will be 20-30K more in europe in starting price.

  • Blade t

    Most people that want this car probably don’t have 50k ..

    • ErnieB

      Wait for the massive rebates in a year or two …or lease for $399/mo $0 down..

  • ErnieB

    Good points.. just imaging if they make the next gen mustang just a 2 seater.. Riots would ensue. I personally use my back seats..at least I can bring my kids along for a ride. They definitely failed in paying homage to the past Supra’s.. they half assed it which is unfortunate and that is why we have all of the hate.

  • salamOOn

    why would you wanna buy a BMW model from Toyota…? its pathetic from toyota. 🙁

    • Bash

      It looks better actually than its BMW sister.

      • salamOOn

        from outside, maybe….. but inside all i can see is bmw… its super weird.

      • ErnieB

        That I do agree!

      • Mike anonymous

        (That’s why I made the other post of mine above). To be honest I would actually rather get the Toyota, if I had to choose between the two.

        Now if we were talking about the last generation Z4 that may be a different story. But I agree.

  • cbATL

    The front end is a deal breaker…as it is for every Toyota product.

  • charlotteharry57

    The first thing that came to mind when I saw that dash was “Corolla Hatchback”.

  • Toss

    I wonder, for right hand stering wheel, central console reverses or stand like this?

    • OdysseyTag

      RHD cars are always fully inverted (mirrored) as far as dashboards are concerned. Fuseboxes and a few wire harness might be left unchanged during conversation of some vehicles but that’s always hidden underneath.

  • enthusia

    I said it before and i will continue to say it: they should have never worked with BMW on this. They should have just used the same platform as the LC500. or at the very least, they should have called this something else. Toyota really got the short end of the stick with this deal, it’s a BMW by any other name.

    • cbATL

      It’s laughable that up that you think the issue is the platform.

      • enthusia

        it’s not just the platform but its a major part of why Toyota partnered with BMW and why it’s such a let down for so many.
        but keep on laughing i guess…

    • eb110americana

      I think it’s funny that they believe the inline-6 is justification for the BMW route. Like, a supercharged Camry V6 is good enough for Lotus, but not the Supra? They could have gone turbo-4, or turbo-4 plus electric boost (something Toyota knows a thing-or-two about), and still could have done everything better in-house.

      The LC500 starts at 4,300 Lbs. (and it uses a ton of carbon fiber, as I discovered at the auto show this year, the entire inner and outer door skins are made from the stuff). While it has good dynamics, using it as a Supra would be contingent on the ability to remove 1,000 Lbs. from the curb weight. Since they already have it, a beefed up FR-S/GT86 platform could gain 500 lbs. and still be only 3,200 lbs. The GT86 already has better proportions than this new Supra, so I am sure a slightly bigger one with more firepower under the hood would only improve the situation.

    • Able

      The LC500 is not the spiritual Supra successor at all. A) it’s a GT car. B) it’s far too heavy. C) it’s a V8. And D) it’s far too expensive! I hate this car but how about you shut up until you’ve actually driven it?

      • Andrewthecarguy

        enthusia is right. The LC500 in Toyota guise and a turbo 6 should have been the answer from Toyota, not this collabo with BMW. Or at least don’t ‘sully’ the legend of the Supra. The Celica would have been the perfect name here. A Supra is on par with the ‘stangs and ‘maros of today, and this iteration ain’t it.
        If FCA can make the Challenger desirable, a toyotafied LC500 would make it.

        • enthusia

          Totally, this should have been a celica, or maybe even a successor to the 86. I just feel the Supra nameplate is deserving of much more than this.

      • enthusia

        Umm I’m not sure how to tell you this, but the Supra has always been a GT car. Maybe if you knew that you wouldn’t fly off the handle like an idiot. LMFAOOO
        Anyways, I don’t hate this car, I am just making some critiques based on my impression of the car.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      This would’ve been a really difficult thing to do with the constraints of the project, but we can all agree that hypothetical car sounds amazing.

      • enthusia

        It could’ve been just like old times, the Supra and the SC 400. How it always should’ve been

        • Tumbi Mtika

          Yeah, I miss it too…

  • KAG25

    They didn’t even bother, just use the Z4 interior with red leather

  • Was Mazda asked to design the interior???? They’ve been talking about this car for so long now I lost little excitement I had for it.

    • ErnieB

      Nah.. they asked BMW for their unwanted interior parts from 2012.

    • Mike anonymous

      I’m going to be completely honest, that’s actually a little bit disrespectful to Mazda. Have you seen the interior of the new Mazda 3? It is much better looking than this (and we were only shown the base models so far (of the Mazda 3)).

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/be855a8c92766ae9d0ceef706a47e8e01a57cd2ea978936e7f2cc7d2bb22ada5.png

      So while I may not agree with you in regards to the Mazda remark, I will say that I do agree about the Supra. It is not bad, it’s just that it’s not the vehicle many of us were (myself included) wanted (necessarily) nor expected.

      • yep Mazda makes good interiors. But this supra still has the dash of a Mazda 2 or Mx5.

  • MIL1234

    seeing the wheel and the center console
    it looks like the interior inherit “old” bmw parts too
    not the from a Z4

    • salamOOn

      well, you have a Z4 chassi with old bmw interior, under toyota body paneling and toyota badges. for 50k.

      what a deal!

      • ErnieB

        Again.. it’s a kit car without soul.

  • Evo45

    I thought there was going to be a base 2.0 engine, or am I dreaming?

  • ohbebek

    where is the digital clock?

  • mas921

    The grey one looks AMAZING!

  • Seats & a steering wheel

    Wow, that silver grey picture of the Supra looks AWESOME! I actually really like the front end and I must say, overall the exterior of the car has grown on me.As for the interior, it’s fine..but IMO lacks the character of the exterior and looks way too BMW for my liking.

    • Mike anonymous

      I can’t agree exactly for the front end styling (as I preferred the F1 racing design of the FT-1 Concept), but the gray does look MUCH better opposed to the red.

  • Six_Tymes

    The grey silver color looks very good. Red, not so much. Maybe in person the red will look better

    • ErnieB

      It’s even a bmw grey!

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Glad to see some agreement in this.

  • ErnieB

    Looks great in BMW grey!! Oh… it’s a Toyota?

  • MatTa Ddor

      That’s what I call a well-executed photoshop

      • MatTa Ddor

        They are the same toyota and bmw Design techniques that they use today.

    • Mike anonymous

      I’m going to be honest if you squint your eyes to the point where 55% blurry, it almost looks like a Z4 or an M2.

  • salamOOn

    For me, this is THE FAIL of the last decade. that mental teasing campaign is even more ridiculous after revealing this thing.

  • EM1

    Rather have a Tesla model 3.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      I wouldn’t, but you do you.

      I’m partial to sports cars though.

  • Denzel

    thats because of multiple updates….. first comment is from 16 days ago.

  • ErnieB
    • Dude

      Tbf the LC is a $100k Aston Martin fighting GT car.

      • ErnieB

        But at least they could have implemented some styling along those lines instead of using Blatant BMW design. I don’t hate the Supra interior, just think it is not Toyota original.

        • Able

          It’s clearly part of the BMW deal. Using their engines obviously meant using their interior parts.

          • Andrewthecarguy

            It’s more than using parts. There is ZERO toyota in that interior, down to the door handles and iDrive is there for crying out loud! The could have at least changed that.

          • LeStori

            Should have used the BMW Exterior parts. This Supra is as ugly as Japanese cars can be. Should be renamed the Toyota Grotesque.

        • Dude

          Agreed. I was disappointed but not surprised. It looks like the last-gen interior of the M2.

        • Enoch Gabriel Gonzales

          The Z4 and the new Supra are both manufactured in the Magna Steyr plant in Austria. Getting parts in the BWM parts bin is the fastest, cheapest and easiest way they can do to keep the price as low as possible

  • SpongeBob99Swell

    (drools instantly)….

  • Bob White

    The 10 year reveal has my heart rate down to 40 bps…

  • Able

    But then one would end up with one of the most underdeveloped cars of the decade. The Q50 (much like most other Nissan Infiniti products) is pure trash.

    • lagunas3ca

      I’d prefer a used 2010 Nissan GT-R with 50K miles over this Supra joke.

  • botornot387

    This looks really good. Can’t wait to test one out. the most exciting thing to come out of Toyota in ages.

        Yes haha

  • Matteo Tommasi

    Why is the passenger handle on driver’s side?

    Maybe not but that’s not what people were saying. I can’t remember which article it was but someone actually thought the Supra would have a 75k MSRP.

    • KAG25

      Dealer mark up on car in stock will be at least $75k the first year or two

  • Elmediterraneo

    The most boring reveal of the history. 5 years of teasing and we still need leaks to see it.
    And all of that for just a BMW Z4 Coupe.

  • Mike anonymous

    Everyone it saying; “It’s Just a Z4”, to “Not A REAL Supra”. Wether I agree or not, this is what we are getting, So thus forth (if the both are so similar) I think the real question should be:

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b3541c96588755a2293c7b2eccd5400bca8cb169eb1aff33d7e20a03ffc83a14.png

    • Mike anonymous

      The general consensus seems to show that everyone agrees that this this IS essentially a BMW (BUT it is) tuned and modified by Toyota (to their apparent liking). Where I think the BIG SPLIT is, is on wether on not this was a good thing. I’m not going to pick sides, but I’m sure some of you who know me, understand where I personally stand in all of this. Either way; WHICH WOULD YOU GET .

      If I had to choose I would go with the Toyota, it personally has a much more… ‘appealing’ front end (especially in the bumper area) to me than the BMW.

      P.S. $10 Bucks says CS is going to take (*couStealgh ) my question and turn it into their own article.

      • KAG25

        The Z4 loaded with a track pack is 65k, so I would take the BMW since it is a drop top and knows what it is.

    • Dude

      Supra. Easily. The more I look at it the more I like it.

      • Karl

        Both are huge disappointments

      • Tumbi Mtika

        Like I said, this is a silver car.

        • Dude

          I never seen a car that looks so good in silver. Maybe it’s the metallic finish since I’ve only see it in the standard red and yellow.

          • Tumbi Mtika

            Only the the ’07 R35 comes to mind for me after this car.

            Looks just amazing. Wears the hue so well.

    It looks overdesigned to the point where it looks like it has extra chubb on it

    • KAG25

      the nose is horrible, the roofline is just weird

  • LJ

    Why do they keep saying it’ll be revealed in Detroit next month? Isn’t the show tomorrow?

    • Alex

      Yes, tomorrow.

    • Mike Gauthier

      It’s an update of an existing post, check out the four updates at the bottom of the article

  • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

    What a waste of time that hype was leading up to it. The most underwhelming announcement Toyota has ever made.

    • Alex

      “Most underwhelming announcement”

      Now that’s an exaggeration.

      • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

        Oh really? You and your buddies circle-jerking over the announcement?

        • Alex

          I’m simply saying that this is not more underwhelming than a Yaris iA model year update, or a new colour for the Corolla.

          • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

            This should be a huge announcement for Toyota, but from the looks of the car, it’ll be a rather serious flop.

          • Alex

            I don’t think it’ll flop. The looks are controversial but I think most people will get used to it.

          • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

            I’m no Supra fan, but it doesn’t seem to be true to brand heritage. Oh well.

          • Alex

            If it’s priced at $50K USD, and drives nicely, it should sell OK.

          • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

            It drives nicely? You had a test drive already? Wow! You lucky guy!! 😂

          • Alex

            IF

        • assassingtr

          Well I mean Q1 the first major autoshow NAIAS and they’re using it as their main showpony. I’d say that’s big as they go. All things considering. It’s toyota, they’re not ferrari.

          • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

            You’d expect Toyota to be using it as their main showpony, but it’s hardly as exciting as Supra generations of old.

    Take your pick folks.. I’d go for the gt500 or hellcat over this little bimmer.. if I wanted a small car a Porsche 718.

    • SpongeBob99Swell

      But I’m sure less torque, heavier, less rigid, skinnier stance, higher center of gravity, etc…

    • Dude

      The M2 and 718 are near perfect sports cars imo so either of them. Also I’m pretty sure the RCF price should be $65,750

      • ErnieB

        Yeah.. the M2 as well..

    • Mike anonymous

      I know this is going to sound odd, but I kind of actually want the AlphaRomeo 4C. (I wouldn’t mind either, but I would prefer the Euro-Spec version of it).

  • ErnieB

    Anyone else think those side mirrors look massive compared to the rest of the vehicle?

    • Thunderbolt

      good for towing big trailer.

  • Zandit75

    I think Tesla has a new competitor for biggest panel gaps.

    • SpongeBob99Swell

      The Maserati Ghibli may be the answer to your question…

  • Mr. EP9

    Considering this keeps getting updated, I’ll just leave a second comment and say GR Supra doesn’t roll off the tongue.

    • ErnieB

      GR stands for Good Ridance!

  • carsmofo

    The first…unreliable Toyota?

    • assassingtr

      How can you tell it’s unreliable by just looking at it?

      • Jay

        I assume they’re referring to the BMW engine.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    You would take the Q50 red sport over this.

    Yikes…

  • Lucius

    Interior looks straight out of my neighbor’s low-spec 2015 3 series. I fear this thing will be a bust in the marketplace

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    BMW made the new supra because 2 series is too small to compete with TT and Cayman

  • eb110americana

    I have a feeling that black will be this car’s color. With all of the slits in the body work, and the extraneous cut lines in the door, there is too much going on for such a small car. Add to that, the 3 goofy front bumper intakes, and it’s a lot to take in. Black should help all of that blend in, to the benefit of its appearance.

    • anthony801

      I agree. I’m willing to bet white will be a popular option as well. White will hide the lines better.

  • Endera A

    toyota should have build the supra on its own.

  • Jureck

    The car community, the biggest crybabies in history…

    • alexxx

      Yes…and sharing 1st place with mobile phones community I am sure…

  • Ali

    Design is too busy

    • PK

      what do you mean by “is too busy”?

  • Alx

    It looks like The Newborn from Alien: Resurrection.

  • getoffme

    All of you love being trolled by Toyota.

    300+ comments and yet people claim they’re not interested anymore. lol

  • Kagan

    It is clearly a z4 in lines.

  • Shahul Usman

    doe look very BMW ish minus the front end..and knowing its basically a Z4 makes it less special I think.. plus with BMW making the M2 competition…

  • Shahul Usman

    even the interior looks BMW (worst of all german makes) with their awful designed shifters.. comes in manual right?

  • Marc Gruben

    Wow… that’s a whole lot of misshapen, lumpy ugliness in such a small car.

  • lagunas3ca

    Veilside should have no problem coming up with a solution to help make this Supra not look like a chick’s car.

  • Chris

    The purpose of my comment is to make sure Toyota uderstands by being another drop in the ocean of the “crybabies” statistics as someone said below, that they messed it up bad…

  • lagunas3ca

    I’d prefer a used 2010 Nissan GT-R with 50K miles for essentially the same price over this Supra joke.

    • ErnieB

      I’d take a C7 grandsport myself..

    • ksegg

      New M2 Competition for me.

  • TB

    Meh…all the hype for that?

    • Stephen G

      Right.

  • ErnieB

    This will a case study for car design and marketing students on how not to roll out a key car. I fear this will not go down well with TADA!!!

  • Kaido Alex

    There are very few people who like this car, and I’m one of them.

  • Enter Ranting

    Who is the market for this car? Someone who wants an expensive Toyota, but with a BMW engine and interior?

  • Astonman

    Cost. It came down to the cost of spending the time and money to build a limited selling car. Both companies were able to shoulder the cost. Another person on this site did a real good job explaining this a couple of months ago.

    • Ary Wisesa

      Yes, you’re right. An article on Motortrend tells the story behind the collaboration between Toyota and BMW. Toyota wants to keep the tradition of inline six engine for Supra, but currently they don’t make it. And it seems they didn’t want to develop it from scratch either, so they turned to BMW to provide the engine. I hope their decision is correct. Let’s wait a few more years to get the answer of whether this car is worthy of bearing the Toyota Supra name.

      • ksegg

        How hard would it have been to take the 2JZ and modernize it? They HAVE the technology and the technical now how; saying they don’t have one or don’t want to make one are excuses.

  • kDawg

    It’s like walking behind a hot girl for a good few blocks then you cringe after you see her face.

    • TheHake

      his face…

  • fgclolz

    Most hideous-looking car to date for me.

    • AnklaX

      The original concept was not the best but it had some aggressiveness to the design. With the final form, all that aggression is completely taken away. The car lacks any character aesthetically.

      • fgclolz

        I wasn’t a fan of the concept either. Just don’t like the design language overall.

  • SteersUright

    From some angles its cool, aggressive, and very dramatic. From others, it looks like a big red clown shoe. Interior looks pretty cool though. Don’t know what to think. This is going to be one of those I have to see in person.

  • Axiom Ethos

    Christ Almighty… they kinda botched a legend. Here’s to another 20 years when they can learn how to re-create a classic without turning it into a bunch of busy non-sense. That wing flopping upward is jarring, those large gills all over are distracting from the overall design, and that front end is an awkward mess. I see two feet sticking sideways on that grill – it just doesn’t flow well. Even the headlamps jerkily going to a point then extending inward looks some odd and unnecessary design element. It’s like they were trying to give it some modern flare and were really lacking inspiration.

    • ira j.

      i could not agree more. it looks like someone beat it with an ugly stick

  • Ary Wisesa

    I don’t mind about how it looks. To me it’s pretty attractive. It will surely turn heads on the street, whether people like it or not. It looks quiet exotic on its own, with those flares and curves. The red one will be especially difficult to ignore when it finally runs on the highway. It can stand proudly side by side with Porsche Cayman, Audi TT, Alfa Romeo 4C, Alpine A110, Nissan 370Z, and of course its own sibling, BMW Z4. The interior is OK in my opinion. Afterall, this is intended to be a sport car, not luxury coupe, so it doesn’t need more bells and whistles.

    I don’t really worry about how it will perform either. Based on my experience with the GT86, I believe the Supra would surpass it very easily in every department. The GT86 is already fun car, albeit underpowered (I really wish they gave it at least 300hp), so the Supra is probably much more fun and obviously much quicker. Toyota said its center of gravity is lower than GT86’s, so it’s a good start.

    What I’m worried about, though, is the reliability. Will it be as reliable as a proper Toyota? Or if not, will it be as reliable as its predecessor? Only time will tell.

  • getoffme

    Yes, and you love being trolled.

  • steve

    Emperors new clothes syndrome! This is one pig-ugly car!

  • Da Only Skid

    And in other news, Oscar no longer lives in a trash can.

  • ztamg04

    well, it looks good, (to my teen eyes) and I am just hesitant about how it will actually drive. The original cars were ridiculously styled, but this new one is quite a handsome coupe. But, after such a long and lengthy gestation, I wonder if it can live up to the hype.

  • Thomas

    Alfa Romeo 4C on general lines, specially on top and side lines, shoulders and taillights.

    Maserati Alfieri inspiration in the back view.

    Good volumes, not that nice proportions, bad headlights.

    Surfaces over, exagerated.

    Nice try but lacks finesse.

  • brn

    Someone take his money. Not mine.

  • ira j.

    this car reminds me a lot of the first porsche panamera. when it was captured in spyshot in full camoflage, i thought, it can’t POSSIBLY be that ugly. and when the camoflage came off, it was. same here!

  • JK

    Whoops. Someone needs to call Toyota and let them know they accidentally made the first few Supras with the BMWs interior. It looks absolutely horrible and out of place inside the Supra.
