Sadly, the camouflage still won't be coming off.
We’re still eagerly anticipating the return of the Toyota Supra. Back in March at the Geneva Motor Show, Toyota revealed the racing concept version, but what we really want to see is the production car. It looks like our prayers could be answered next week, because Toyota Europe has teased that the new Supra will make its first ever public appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. “#ToyotaSupra is back. A90. At Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018 @fosgoodwood” Toyota wrote on Twitter.
An accompanying image shows the car once again hidden under camouflage. While we would love to see the camouflage finally come off, Toyota confirmed to us the final production car won't be revealed at Goodwood, so we'll probably still have to wait until towards the end of the year or early next year for the full reveal. Toyota did confirm, however, that this will be the first time the Supra has ever been shown at a public event. The prototype will be on display every day of the event and tackle the famous hillclimb, so we'll also get to see the Japanese sports car get put through its paces for the first time.
Leaked information suggests the reborn Supra, which is being co-developed with BMW alongside the new Z4, will arrive with a BMW-sourced turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six engine producing 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. A more-powerful GRMN model could also eventually join the range. It will reportedly weigh around 3,300 pounds and do 0-62 mph in just 4.5 seconds. Don’t expect it to be cheap either, as reports suggest the new Supra will start at $63,500 when it goes on sale in the US.
