    Courtesy of Jalopnik, is this new 2018/2019 Toyota Supra rendering which purports to be the most accurate illustration (they call it "spot on") of the Supra MKV to date, based on information they obtained from an insider source.

    I think it looks alright. I really hope Toyota doesn't use the Z5's mirrors. In my opinion it needs better wheels and door mounted mirrors.

    Good effort but I'm not a big fan. The FT-1 had a flowing shape with organic lines, but this is full of hard lines... especially that front bumper. Also the front hood is too long compared to what we've seen on the spied prototypes.

    So basically I hope the insider source is not an insider source at all, or is wrong :)

    I know it's just a rendering and it's not terrible but I expect more...that front reminds me of the 92-96 Honda Prelude for some reason.

    Looks like it took styling cues from the BMW Zagato Coupe Concept. I actually wouldn't be surprised if the Z5 looks more like the rendering from Jalopnik.

    These "insiders" are full of it! Lol
    A hundred dollars says the front won't look like this at all.

    i do like the hood and fenders, but that rear quarter panel looks like it come straight off of a Z4. it doesn't look like the spy shots, the car appears to be more round overall.

    Looking at driver side fake taillight, I think its an air vent.

    That looks like its a few decades behind the times. Even if it hits all the right specs I don't think I could stomach that design. It doesn't help they put those nasty wheels on it but still. I hope they are way off the mark here.

    Definately has an 80's angular nose to it. For some reason it kinda reminds me of my MKII Celica-Supra. Not as sexy as the concept but I'd still rock it.

    i agreed with a lot of what you said. i also think Jalopnik is wrong.

    the spy shots IMO is very round and curvy

    on the other hand that rendering is just screaming Z4 too me.

    Looks like a bomex aftermarket front bumper and headlights. The wheels look like they came out of a crossover. Lol

    The wheels are awful. Looks like a mix of the FT-CH and Corolla SE.
