Are The Toyota Supra's Iconic Taillights Back On The New Supra?

Could this be the return of the cool stoplight-style taillights from the old Supra? The latest spy shots over at show more close-to-production flourishes we haven’t seen before, including a more pronounced proboscis, a sculpted side and a curvaceous rear end with two horizontal taillights and a ducktail spoiler.


The rear of the new Supra test mule looks more like a regular car now, with the clear outline of some taillights poking through the camouflage.

The previous A80-generation Supra had bar-shaped taillights reminiscent of a sideways stop light. The tails in the spy shots may be more tapered at one end, but they’re certainly an homage to the previous model.

Perhaps we weren’t wrong to assume the car would share more in common with the FT-1 and FT-HS concept cars, either. Both concepts share a pointy nose and scalloped roof with this car. The FT-1 also has an air channel through the side of the car, and it’s clear from the new shots that the new Supra shares at least some kind of aerodynamic indentation in its door.

There’s also a indentation in the middle of the sides of the bumper for something, but it’s hard to tell what yet. Design flourish? Aerodynamics? Mere camo?

You can ogle all of the angles of the latest, greatest Supra here at If anything, it’s made me only more curious what this car will look like in production form.

At this point I think the auto manufacturers should just start trolling us...

Right around the introduction time for their new year models...they should flood the streets with 10-year-old models of the same car, all wrapped in the anti-spy camo.

I can just imagine the collective shit-losing of the nation of auto journalists:

“Holy shit...saw two 3000GT’s rolling around the Mitsubishi test plant, in new model camo....THEY’RE MAKING THE 3000GT AGAIN....”
