Thanks to new spy photos, we now accept our best look yet at the eagerly awaited Toyota Supra successor. This epoch, we finally get a clear look at the shapes of the principal- and taillights. The latter are clearly pulled ethical from the FT-1 concept, as they share the verbatim at the same time slim wedge shape and sharp corners. They perfection the FT-1-inspired greenhouse and ducktail spoiler fairly nicely. However, the concept’s dramatic diffuser and vents from disappeared, and the exhaust outlets have been moved to more normal cut-outs in the base of the rear bumper.

At the face, the car’s connection to the FT-1 is more tenuous. This is clearest in the headlights, which are elementary, oval-shaped units. These lights are approximately retro in shape, looking more like the rounded lights on the fourth-era Supra than anything in Toyota’s contemporaneous lineup. Our photographer also noted that the choke-full-width lower grille indicates what is more deviation from the concept, on which the nose bisected the cut grille. With this in mind, it’s practicable the pointy nose on this test mule and on the FT-1 may fade away in favor of a smooth front bumper.

The insufficiency of camo also provides a reminder that this car when one pleases share more than just its principles with a new BMW, the replacement for the Z4, rumored to be called Z5. The side mirrors on this assay car look to have been plucked from a Bavarian parts bin, and earlier spy shots usher a lot of BMW switchgear inside. We’d love to see a turbocharged inline-six produce it in as well, although the rumor is that the machine will be a Toyota turbo four. Until the car makes its appear, we can dream, right?
