Here's yet another teaser to keep us excited.
After years of hype, speculation, concept cars, teasers, and leaks, we only have another month to wait before the 2020 Toyota Supra is finally revealed at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. At this point, we'd almost rather see baby photos and cat videos on Facebook than yet another teaser image for the Supra, especially considering that the car's entire front end was recently leaked on the internet.
Just as the world can't seem to stop producing baby photos and memes, Toyota couldn't help itself with just one more teaser shot of the Supra, this time showing us something we haven't really seen before. The teaser shot comes with an announcement that the first 2020 Supra will be auctioned off for charity - but more on that later.
Let's first talk about this little teaser that has accompanied Toyota's announcement. The focal point of the image is the Supra's side-view mirror, which is rather uninteresting on the surface. What interests us is what's behind the mirror. This particular Supra will boast sporty red bucket seats, which remind us of what you'd find in a Honda Type R product.
Toyota has been on record saying the Supra will be very different from the BMW Z4 and these red racing buckets look like a far cry from the comfortable leather chairs found on the Z4. Though it is tough to say for sure, it also appears as though there will be no back seat in the Supra, meaning it won't be a four-seater like the fourth generation car.
Following the car's reveal in Detroit, the first 2020 Supra will be sold at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Saturday, January 19, 2019. Toyota says this Supra will be a one-of-a-kind, featuring a matte grey paint job with red mirrors, red leather seats, and matte black wheels. The car will also have a carbon-fiber badge on the interior, signifying it as the first 2020 Supra. All proceeds from the sale will benefit the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation and judging by how much first production cars like this have gone for at auction, we expect it to sell for close to seven figures.
