2020 Toyota Supra Rear Leaked, Looks Great Painted In Yellow

Obviously inspired by the FT-1 concept car from the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, the Supra looks both sporty and sophisticated as far as the rear end is concerned. This photograph also reveals the Supra font remains unchanged from the previous generation.

The Formula 1-styled LED cluster located in the middle of the rear aerodynamic diffuser? That’s the fog light in this application, a similar design to the Ferrari F12berlinetta. The diameter and finish of the exhaust pipes, meanwhile, is a confirmation of the B58 engine that Toyota claimed it’slegendary for some reason or another.

Published by Supra93 on the Supra MkV forum, the photograph also gives a glimpse of the integrated spoiler that replaces the retractable rear wing of the FT-1 concept. Decisively aggressive, the Supra also happens to feature fewer vents and venturi tunnels than the FT-1. Call us unsurprised, but the concept is too mad from a stylistic standpoint for the legislators to allow such an outlandish design into production.

Created by CALTY Design Research in North America, the FT-1 is “is a pure performance, track-focused sports car” according to Toyota. The Supra, on the other hand, is a mixed bag of Toyota but mostly BMW parts, including the CLuster ARchitecture from the Z4 and all-new 3 Series.

The transmission, likewise, is of German origin. The ZF 8HP will be complemented by a six-speed manual at some point in the future, with initial availability restricted to RHD countries such as Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The question is, will Toyota ever get a clue about what Supra customers want from their car?

Chief engineer Tetsuya Tada also made a case for a convertible body style, though the higher-ups haven’t decided if this option is feasible. On the other hand, development shouldn’t be that hard considering that the Z4 comes with a retractable soft top. The electrically-operated roof can be opened or close in 10 seconds at speeds of up to 50 km/h (31 mph) according to BMW.
