Has a car leaked more times than the fifth generation Toyota Supra? The inordinately long gestation period hasn't helped, of course (the manufacturer started began pursuing the idea at the turn of the decade) nor the umpteen concepts that have been and gone in that time. Even so, Toyota has signally failed to keep things wired tight.
Today offers an additional example. Even on the cusp of its official debut at the Detroit Auto Show, the firm hasn't managed to keep the production model under wraps. According to Jalopnik, the blame (this time around) lies with Toyota Mexico, which posted the in-house video below on its Twitter account.
Of course, the damage is somewhat mitigated by the extent of the leaks which have preceded it, not to mention an extensive track drive programme based on the prototype. So we already know many, many things - if not precise details - just as we knew what the car looked like, despite the attention of Toyota's camouflage paint department.
The video - now courtesy of Carscoops - adds nothing in the numbers department, but does reveal the A90 in all its red-coloured glory. Your opinions on its appearance are likely fully-formed already, although for what its worth, the consensus in the office still has the collective PH thumb pointing up. Certainly it has the right proportions, anyway (being impressively long in the bonnet and short in the overhangs) and is raked and angular and striking where a Supra ought to be.
Just how pleasing it appears in the flesh remains to be seen, just as the final (final) details are still to be discovered. Enough to keep us in expectant mood for Monday morning in Detroit, obviously - but perhaps not quite at the edge of our seats. Where we ought to have been.
