Spied for the first time in full production guise, the pre-production prototype in the adjacent gallery looks to have kept most of the design details that made the Toyota FT-1 concept so lovable.
The double-bubble roof is easily distinguishable from under the heavy camouflage, and so is the funky spoiler integrated into the rear hatch or the angry looking taillights. That said, it is also easy to see some BMW-sourced elements on the prototype.
The mirrors look like they were borrowed from the 3 Series F30, while those wheels are definitely Style 182 Alloys, made famous by the first generation 1 Series (E87).
For the few who aren't in the know, the next Toyota sports car is made in collaboration with BMW, which is why the new Supra will get a Bavarian twin called the BMW Z5.
Unlike other modern sports car revivals, like the Nissan GT-R R35 or the Acura/Honda NSX, the new Supra will not cross into supercar territory, Toyota deciding to offer a more affordable model compared with its rivals.
Expect a starting price of around $60,000, or Corvette money, for the production model, which is projected to debut sometime in 2017, as a MY2018. There will be at least two versions available, both powered by BMW engines.
The base model is expected to get a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder, while the top of the range should get a hybridized BMW 3.0-liter inline six with around 450 hp on tap. Rumors were suggesting that the most powerful variant may get all-wheel-drive, although that kind of configuration isn't that common with front-mid-engine cars.
