After seeing these new photographs, we should admit, the brand new Toyota Supra seems actually good. Its proportions are spot-on; with an extended hood, brief rear deck and low roofline; and it seems actually muscular due to its flared fenders. It’s additionally good that it seems Japanese. Being based mostly on the identical chassis because the BMW Z4, it wouldn’t be surprising if the 2 vehicles seemed comparable.
