New pics and article.
Aside from the initial concept, it sounds like Toyota USA had no part in the development of the production car.
“The most dramatic section of body work on the new Supra is the air scoop structure around the headlights. Toyota and Calty managed to integrate this into the final design – though the scoops are sealed off and not functional on the Xfinity car – while creating a minimum of aero disturbance.”
Hmmm maybe hinting that the production car will in fact have functional vents?
“And Toyota’s not done yet: a third racing iteration, completely separate from the sports car racing or NASCAR realms, is to be announced before the production car’s ultimate reveal.”
What other type of racing could it be?
In this interview they said Calty styled the production car.
^Maybe they got confused? Even A70 said Toyota USA really had no involvement with the A90.
Calty designed the FT-1, but I am unsure to what sort of involvement they had with the production car. The two are obviously very different despite cues.
NASCAR's are ugly as f#@k
I like the Gt3 cars most
Agree that NASCAR body style looks severely outdated and the selected livery color scheme didn’t do it any favors drawing your eye to the awful looking blended roofline.
However, strictly from a marketing standpoint they want the Supra to have as much exposure and compete in as many forms of racing (Supra vs the world mentality) as possible. While not traditionally a Camaro and Mustang competitor leveraging the NASCAR fan base and jumping into the ring with two volume sellers to boost sales makes a lot of sense. Also, for the road car to go out gunning for its traditional competitors plus the Camaro and Mustang specifically in the highest performance versions ZL1 1LE, GT350/500 distances it from the BMW version and will be great to watch especially if it out right destroys those cars on a track.
Man proportionally this new Supra/Monte Carlo esque Nascar colab is sure weird.
Well could be worse the new supra could be based of a BMW Z....... waaaaiiit a minute.
NASCAR? What the hell...this is not the news I was hoping for. Keep on waiting...sigh.
Does this mean the nose will make the production car go faster too?
