    Last week we got an early look at the front end of a silver MkV 2020 Toyota Supra, and now comes a shot of the new model’s rear end wearing a shiny coat of bright yellow paint. The latest photograph was once again posted to the Supra MkV forumahead of the car’s international debut at January’s Detroit auto show.

    Toyota’s fifth-generation Supra will wear classic long-hood, short-deck proportions, and this image reveals its rear fascia, diffuser, and chrome exhaust tips. It also features a centered Toyota badge on the trunklid with script “Supra” directly below it in black. Toyota itself showed off a side-mirror cap in red last week, so we know several of the color options before seeing the full car in the metal.

    Toyota’s iconic nameplate has been parked since 2002 and its latest reincarnation was developed in a partnership with BMW that also produced the gorgeous new Z4 roadster. The Supra shares a turbocharged inline-six engine and eight-speed automatic transmission with that model; we’ve already driven a MkV prototype and you can read about it here.

    The all-new Supra is expected to go on sale next summer, but if you can’t wait to get in line—and have a large pile of cash handy—the very first example will be auctioned on January 19 at Barrett-Jackson’s annual Scottsdale, Arizona, sale, with proceeds to benefit the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation. That example is painted matte gray—it’s as-yet unclear if that paint will be offered to regular customers—with red mirror caps, a matching red interior, and matte black wheels.

        It's a re-badged BMW.

          It looks ok, I guess. I'm really bummed about the Bummer (ha!) engine, transmission, and even electronics. BMW and Audi electronics are garbage. The connectors rot in about 5 years and the designs are overly complex. I think Toyota is offering a Toyota drivetrain option in Japan, so there's hope that we'll see an option here eventually. A turbo Toyota 4 might be nice.

            Autoblog compared the new with the old: https://www.autoblog.com/2019/01/16/...ra-comparison/

            What impresses me is that the car weighs about the same as the 1993 model even with the BMW auto transmission. And the weight distribution is 50/50 with that drivetrain.

            I told a guy yesterday who balked at the $50k price that $50k is less than the price of the last generation when you factor in inflation. Autoblog did the calculation. The last generation car would cost $20k more than the current generation car in today's dollars.
