Spied! Toyota Supra Steps out Wearing Production Wheels

Prepares for debut in 2019

This may be the umpteenth time we've seen a Toyota Supra prototype, but each encounter reveals new information about the final model that will arrive next year. In this latest sighting, we can see the car's production wheels.

In contrast to the generic wheels we've seen on previous mules, the wheels on this Supra feature a two-tone color design. We don't know the exact size of the Michelin tires on this prototype, but our spy photographers saw what looks like 255 on the front tire.

Other than the new wheels, the Supra looks pretty much the same as the last time we spotted it. Some standout visual features include its wide front vents, double-bubble roofline, and a spoiler and diffuser in the back. We didn't catch the interior this time around, but we've already seen a Supra prototype with a cabin that borrows from BMW in terms of design. The Supra will share a platform with the upcoming BMW Z4.

Toyota is keeping quiet on powertrain details for its revived Supra. But Supra chief engineer Tetsuya Tada hinted the model would receive a turbocharged inline-six to please fans of the nameplate who expect the car to have a straight-six. If Toyota decides to borrow from BMW, it could use the Bavarian automaker's 3.0-liter turbo inline-six. The Supra goes on sale next year, although specific U.S. launch timing has not yet been announced.
