After years of rumors and speculation we are happy to show you the very FIRST LOOK at the 2018/19 Toyota Supra out testing on public roads in Germany!!

The Toyota-BMW joint venture through which the 2018/19 Supra has been created will also spawn a BMW Z5 roadster with rumors suggesting that Toyota will provide the hybrid technology for the sports car while BMW will perform most of the development work on the rear wheel drive chassis and engines.

While the first sightings of the BMW Z5 confirm that it will be a convertible, this Supra MKV prototype is a coupe. Based on the beautiful Toyota FT-1 concept, this 2018/19 Toyota Supra early prototype is seen here sporting basic design cues from the concept that wowed the world in January 2014 at the North American International Auto Show. Obviously, this is a very early prototype and naturally features some parts bin placeholder items (i.e. headlights and tail lights) which will be replaced by actual production parts later in the testing process.

Toyota has stated that the Toyota FT-1 concept was made 10% larger for more stage presence and it is immediately apparent from this prototype that the next production Supra will be much smaller than the sizable FT-1 concept which measured over 184 inches in length underpinned by a 107.9 inch wheelbase. A 10-percent decrease in size would result in a Supra measuring 177 inches in length with a 104 inch wheelbase, consistent with rumors that the next-gen Supra would be similar in size to the Porsche 911.

Also of interest and perhaps in an intentional nod (or simply some parts bin sharing) to the joint Toyota-BMW project, the wheels on this prototype resemble the wheels on the recently released BMW M4 GTS, while the digital+physical gauge cluster resembles those on the newest and upcoming BMW models.

Yesss finally! It's definitely sized down from the concept car just like Toyota said it'd be. Perfect size IMO. Doesn't have the exotic long look anymore but I'd rather it be compact and nimble (and hopefully light).

Spoiler doesn't seem to be as dramatic as before, but hopefully it's still an active spoiler like the concept.

Very Fast
Like the overall shape and size but two huge aspects of the car still completely hidden - the the front and rear end designs. The tail lights don't even look like production lights but just off the shelf parts used as placeholders for now. The front end looks extra long and bulbous on purpose to throw use off. Hope there's an FT-1 style front fascia under there.

Oh and nice double hump roof just like the concept!

Let's hope. It looks decidedly retro (in a bad way) from what is visible. I'm really hoping some more of the FT1 styling makes it to production.

Nice gauges. Looks like there's lots of room to display some nice graphics and info in between the physical outlines of the speedo and tach. Would love to see Audi style navigation and car controls all being done in that space.

Hoping for new Supra
Definitely not a GT size or styled car. Props to Toyota for making the MKV Supra a proper sports car!

Can't really tell front or rear design yet but the overall roof and trunk line is pretty sweet.

I wish the hood was a little longer.

This view shows how it's nice and wide. The height to width ratio is spot on! Now I'm all antsy waiting for the next set of more revealing pics. :spaz:

Glad the hood is not ugly long as the Mercedes-AMG GT. Like that it looks compact. Hopefully it will be lighter than a Porsche Cayman. Unfortunately knowing how cheap BMW is, I doubt it will have a transaxle.

Looks like they are keeping the nose...none the less, it's about damn time something is shown.
