Lone image reveals new details of a 'modern racing concept' lined up for the Geneva show
Opponents of shadowy teaser images look away now, Toyota has released another glimpse of its long awaited Supra successor, and it's about as murky as these things get. The bulbous ducktail and double-bubble roof previously seen in spy shots are both evident here, although a couple of new features are also apparent.
The rear haunches appear considerably more defined than in previous pictures, closer to those on the FT-1 concept, with a sharper transition into the roof resulting in a more purposful stance than the previously chunky design.
There's also a bloody great wing on the back, perhaps hinting at a more track-orientated variant. As we already have confirmation that the Supra will be sold in four trim levels under the Gazoo banner, a bewinged range-topping Supra GRMN isn't too great a stretch.
The new Supra is expected to be sold in coupe form only, alongside the convertible-only BMW Z4/5 with which it shares a platform. Petrol and hybrid powertrains have been mooted, although whichever trim level and engine combination you spec, an automatic gearbox is believed to be the only transmission option.
Whatever final form the finished car takes, we'll have a little longer to wait: Toyota's pronounced "commitment to bringing its most iconic sports car back to the market" doesn't appear to be contingent on timeliness - the official unveil isn't expected now until early next year.
