The wait is still not quite over. Technically, it’s still not the Toyota Supra we’ve anxiously been looking forward to since the curtains drew on the previous generation in 2002. It’s still a concept but of a different kind; it’s called the GR (for Gazoo Racing) Supra Racing Concept. At least, they’ve confirmed the Supra name.
What’s certain is that the new road-going Supra will not feature that massive rear wing along with the dramatic bodywork that features wide front and rear bumpers, a front splitter and rear diffuser. While it offers a faint impression of how the actual Supra will look like, it’s certain you wouldn’t want it with plastic windscreen and side mirrors like those found in the GR Supra Racing Concept.
That said, we’d really love to see those BBS wheels revealed with the actual car alongside the Brembo Racing callipers and racing exhaust.If you haven’t already heard, the new Toyota Supra will be sharing a similar platform with BMW as it has been developed in tandem with the new Z4. It’s been rumoured that the new Z4 could be offered in both coupe and convertible configurations while the Supra remains solely a hard-top.
