All dilemmas have been removed. After long controversy and turnaround, a new generation of Toyota’s sports coupe has arrived. Namely, the 2019 Toyota Supra arrives in the first quarter of 2018. Many details related to this car are still a mystery. On the other hand, Toyota has announced a partial specification of the new Supra Coupe.
As an announcement for this model, it served the Toyota FT-1 Concept, which was introduced in 2014. Already, it was known that Toyota is planning to produce a new sports coupe. Also, it was known that Toyota is working on a joint project with the BMW company. As a product of this collaboration, a new generation of BMW Z4 roadster models, as well as the Toyota Supra 2019, arrive. The shortcomings that were created around the Toyota’s model were related to vehicle names. However, the dilemmas were resolved because the company decided to return the name Supra for its legendary model.
In the end, it remains to be seen how the serial model will look. There is more and more information in this field. Namely, the test vehicle samples can be noticed with an ever-smaller amount of camouflage on itself. Also, it’s almost certain what will be under the hood of the new Toyota Supra, as well as the transmission that the vehicle will use.
2019 Toyota Supra and the new BMW Z4 will share the same platform. On the other hand, each of these manufacturers will give their own designer stamp to their model. Although there are still a lot of camouflage on test specimens, which were spotted at the Nürburgring, some details can be seen.

However, what is best seen is the shape and lines of the vehicle. All in all, this will be a powerful and attractive sports coup.
Unfortunately, the appearance and details of the interior of the vehicle are the biggest stranger. However, there is information that points to some details of the interior. More specifically, the climate control buttons, as well as the infotainment system, will be borrowed from the BMW Z4.
