New Supra's shape revealed and it looks awesome

Certainly toned down from the over the top F1 concept. As for awesome, it is all in the eye of the beholder. Personally, I want to see more pictures of its official launch at the 2019 Detroit motor show. Until then, the following looks really nice to my eye.

On paper, it looks like it is going to have a very decent engine and auto transmission.

I'm not sold on the look overall at the moment. I think the side profile and rear look nice but the front puts me off. The front bar and the headlights just look a little unusual to me, and considering I really did love the F1 concept (although I know attempting to mass produce that would cost a fortune) I was a little disappointed mostly at the front end. I know the MK4 wasn't overally aggressive but I guess I'm just used to the older 80s and 90s shapes.

The engine should go very nicely considering BMW have made quite a lot of great turbo 6s over the years.

Some great renders have been doing the rounds online which give some hope that once someone modifies one it will look a lot better.

I'd rather wait to see one in person before

It looks good but it's not a real Toyota & it's automatic. What's more it's a tiny car. Toyota would be pulling an 86 like rabbit out of the hat to get it anywhere near $60K for a turbo six like they're predicting made in Europe. BMW pricing is $125K ! I miss the old Japanese sportscars from the 90's & 00's 😐

Just watched this YouTube video about the co-development of the BMW Z4 and the Toyota Supra. Certainly preferred the tone of this video with a "factual/informed" approach to offset unsubstantiated statements/claims.  Interesting the different manufacturer's approach and Toyota's engineers' emphasis upon durability and reliabilty.

Personally I much preferred the concept version better 

 

If I bought the current version it would need a lot of modification (including ripping all or most of the BMW parts out) before I was happy.

Some questions over what Toyota will offer for the TRD and option's range package for New Supra, so a wait and see it seems
