Read more about This is What the New Toyota Supra Could Look Like at AutoGuide.com.It’s no secret that a brand new Toyota sports car, almost certainly called the Supra, will make its debut in the near future, but exactly when it will arrive and how it will look are still unknown.
Working with digital artist Tobias Büttner, this is what AutoGuide.com believes the Supra’s successor will look like, drawing inspiration from the FT-1 Concept.
Spy photographers have recently caught what appears to be the production design of the Supra testing, giving us an idea of the proportions and size for the upcoming sports car. Expect a sweeping body with attractive curves, while up front large air intakes will help keep whatever powerplant nice and cool. The two strongest powerplant rumors suggest that either a turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine from BMW or a turbocharged V6 from Lexus will provide motivation.
The prototype Toyota has been testing is heavily camouflaged, but the latest spy photos give a hint at what the rear tail light design will be. It’s still unclear when Toyota intends to debut the new Supra, but it will likely come sometime after the new BMW Z5, which will be built on the same platform jointly developed by both automakers.

The upcoming new sports car from the Japanese automaker is a sister car to the BMW Z5, which spy photographers also recently snapped photos of. And like the BMW Z5, Toyota’s Supra has dropped a little bit of camouflage to show off some more of its production body, which is looking sportier than ever. It is believed the BMW Z5 will only be available as a roadster, while the Supra will exclusively be offered as a coupe.
The latest set of photos show the Supra’s stylish lines with short overhangs and large air intakes in the front bumper, hinting at some serious performance under the hood. We also get a better look at how the rear tail lights will shape out with the cutouts exposed, but they’re still not the real deal underneath all the camouflage.
Expect both four- and six-cylinder engines to power the Toyota Supra, borrowed from BMW. But it’s also likely that Toyota will drop some of its electrified powertrain to make it a hybrid, as spy photographers noted some prototypes sound like they were operating in an all-electric mode.
Japan’s signature auto show, the Tokyo auto show, was a must-see extravaganza of the country’s future sports-car ideas and eccentric concept cars throughout the 1990s. Then, as the Shanghai and Beijing auto shows grew in prominence and Korean cars started eating into Japan’s global market share, the Tokyo event lost its luster, dropping to second-tier status on the international calendar of car shows. And there it has stayed for the past decade. (It doesn’t help that the show is held only every other year.) But that won’t be the case in 2017, in large part because of one debut: the Toyota Supra concept.
The Supra concept leads a show-car trio from Toyota that also will include, according to the Japanese magazine Best Car, Toyota’s S-FR and Corolla GTI concepts. We first saw the next-generation Supra’s design direction when the company unveiled its FT-1 concept in January 2014, and the final product will take strong styling hints from that car, as the rendering published here shows. The final design is a collaboration between Toyota’s headquarters in Toyota City and the company’s Calty studio, located in California.
Co-developed with BMW and using the same rear-wheel-drive platform as the upcoming Z5, we can expect to see the Supra powered by Toyota’s own 255-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four and a flagship 340-hp turbo 3.0-liter V-6 married to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A 2.5-liter hybrid is expected to join the lineup a year after the launch in late 2018. Although still a concept, the Tokyo car is described as very close to production.
The BMW Z5, on the other hand, will employ the German company’s turbocharged inline-four and straight-six powerplants and incorporate special lightweight carbon-fiber technology borrowed from the i3 and i8. It’s slated for a Frankfurt auto show debut in September.
Based on spy shots that emerged over the past few months, these digital images were posted on the SupraMKV forums showing the sports car with design influences from the FT-1 Concept on both ends along with a double-bubble roof.
We'll soon see how close or far off the artist is from the real Supra, as Toyota reportedly plans to preview the production car with a concept at this year's Tokyo Auto Show in October.

Unfortunately the Supra is still wearing plenty of camouflage, but this time we get detailed photos of the tail lights that slightly resemble the previous Supra’s units with round housings. It’s still hard to pick out details on the upcoming sports car, but we will finally get the full picture when it bows at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show this October.
Riding on a platform that’s the result of a collaboration between BMW and Toyota, the new Supra will only be offered as a coupe while the BMW Z5 will be a convertible.
It’s still unclear what powertrain Toyota will use on its Supra, but it’s possible the Japanese automaker will turn to BMW’s turbocharged engines. If not, expect to see a turbocharged V6 from Toyota that may be further boosted with electrification.
