WHat do you want to see in the next Supra concept?

So I have been hearing rumors that the FT1 Supra is the first of a few design concepts that will come out before a production model. My question is, what do you want to see from the next Supra concept?

Something more production geared? Something with a convertible or targa roof on it? Something without the FT1 nose?

Plenty of possibilities. Where do you think Toyota will take this?

NO I think that face is going to be relatively consistent in Toyota's design language fom here on out...




Not identical of course, but my brothers aren't identical to me either. You can tell they're related. And if you doubt the FT-1s influence on the language, check out the rear of that FCV...

again, the family resemblance is there...

They shouldn't bother making another design concept since people like this one. They should focus on improving this design so it won't be dated by the time it goes into production.

If anything I can see it evolving to be more production friendly. I'd say the next FT1 concept will look much more crashable, a small evolution hopefully but a great indicator of eventual production

It's easy to say that now, but you don't know what they will do with the next design concept. Maybe it will be even more exciting or preferable to the FT1 concept. I think the eventual Supra will be related to this current concept, but it is still going to be pretty different. I am excited to see some more Supra design ideas from Toyota.

they've been tight-lipped about the whole thing really and there's not much to go off of with what we have here with the concept.

just going to have to wait for future updates to really see what it is they want to do.

It must be in a different style than this first concept. Maybe it will look more like a classic sportscar in that it will get rid of the F1 nose. It could also look a bit more muscle carish. Who knows really though?

even if it ends up being a cheaper, dumbed down version of the lfa or ft1, ppl will still buy it.

^ I agree. Just make sure it's priced right and it has the right engine combination and you have a winner.
