I'm a fan of cars, not a fanboy for any badge.
Well said. Being a fan of a badge or a brand is mindless. This really isn't a Supra; it's just a marketing exercise which is holding the name "Supra" hostage.

The more I see it the more I like it, but maybe that's because I like BMW's more than Toyota's. Looks like its sized correctly and not elongated like most newer coupes today. Hopefully they release a manual version.

I also like it but fear the final product might be a little too busy...I really hope they make a z4 coupe with similar proportions but a cleaner design...and a manual of course

A few more pics from the streets of Japan. To address a few of the concerns. The assistant chief engineer well as ToyotaUSA has stated a manual transmission is on the table. Those that fearing that its just a reskin Z4, there is word going around that Toyota had more involvement then what is being let on. Perhaps even the involvement of Yahama on the head for the GRMN version? We'll just have to wait and see. Two and a half more months to go.

It’s Supra Time: 2020 Supra Debuts in Detroit

Quote:
First Production Supra to be Auctioned in January

October 30, 2018
PLANO, Texas, October 30, 2018 -- Confirming one of the worst-kept secrets in the auto industry, Toyota announced it will premiere its oft-teased and much-anticipated 2020 Supra at January’s 2019 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

But in fresh news, Toyota will be offering the first global production unit of the Toyota Supra through auction with all proceeds going to charity. This one-of-a-kind Supra will be delivered to the winning bidder when production starts in the first half of 2019.

Toyota Supra In Motorsports

Quote:
Toyota’s SEMA 2018 display celebrates the return of Toyota’s most iconic performance car with raceprepared renditions of the upcoming fifth generation Supra. Toyota will campaign a Supra-bodied car in next year’s NASCAR Xfinity Series, and it will be parked next to what may be the most extreme new Supra to date—the Supra GTE racing concept introduced earlier this year at the Geneva International Motor Show. The car is making its North American debut at this year’s SEMA show.

In support of Supra’s return to the racetrack and the street, a display of classic Supras—featuring generations one through four, all in white—will be parked at the 2018 SEMA booth. The pristine assembly will be accompanied by eight modified examples displayed on the outdoor patio, celebrating a die-hard enthusiast following that endures to this day.

Hah, those latest three pictures above in red actually look great to me! Sorry for the dumb question, but are they using the "Supra" logo from the MKIV as pictured? If so that's a huge win.

I almost like the MKII, I really like the MKIII and MIV. Those two are really the pinnacle of the brand. The MKIII was very understated, but classic exotic Japanese with a bit of mystery as it was fairly rare in the US (at least the turbo). The MKIV took it to the next level and really upped the performance. This MK5 just looks poor IMO. I'd rather have a MKIV with almost the same body shape and just modernized. Toyota and Lexus styling is just crazy bad most of the time. Celica GT-S, MR-2 and Supra were the hey-day.

lets slow down and think for a second what the 4th gen Supra meant to the world and the capability it had for the time... if u think about that, then u will realize this is simply whoring out the Supra badge for a very expensive frs

Let's not be selective with our memories and think for a second what the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gen Supra meant to the world and the capability it had for the time too. If you think about that, then u will realize this is simply another Supra at a new time.

1994 Supra had power up to 320hp... this was in a world of 100hp cars...

Somehow we progressed to 355hp in 2018 when Camrys make 306. Then they have the nerve to make it a BMW, I think Toyota has lost it personally... at least Nissan made a worthy successor to the Skyline; one that has broken record after record.

You're still focused on the 4th gen Supra and conveniently not mentioning the 1-3 gen models.

My point is the Supra "badge" wasn't associated with any over the top performance for 3 of its 4 generations. When you consider the entire history of the Supra, this 5th gen will easily be worthy of the nameplate.

Sure, except that people only remember the 4th generation when they think of the Supra name. It was the one that made the name legendary. In addition, the car market has changed drastically in 25 years where certain expectations have to be met. Assuming this car is 65k as I've heard, I think that it will be an utter sales failure from day one.

...people only remember the 4th generation when they think of the Supra name.
I believe my response has proved your theory wrong. I remember the 2nd and 3rd gen Supras... That's why I responded to your limited recollection. Perhaps people's age is impacting their perception, but I don't only think about the 4th gen Supra just as I don't only think of the 7th gen Corvette, or 6th gen Mustang.

Let's be honest now, the A80 became really famous because of the F&F.

Yes, this was from the leaked parts diagrams.
