The photos show a fixed roof coupe that appears to have proportions similar to the FT-1 Concept, the stunning show car that teased this new machine. The style all around the development car is toned down compared to the concept, but it still looks plenty aggressive. Thick plastic is hiding the front end well, while small round taillights are visible in the back, though these might just be used for the prototype. We see shades of previous Supras in the design of this prototype, but Toyota might be doing that to throw us off.

Two of the photos also offer a glimpse of the interior, which looks more BMW than Toyota. The steering wheel and gauges appear to be out of a BMW, while the small wheel that controls the German brand’s iDrive infotainment system can also be seen.
As for body styles, the Supra is said to be a coupe only, while its sister car, the BMW Z5, is rumored to be only a roadster with a soft-top. Early on in development, BMW and Toyota said that the two cars will not be direct competitors, despite sharing many of the same internal components.
