The teaser image suggests that the Supra racing concept will have a large fixed rear spoiler and a double-bubble roof like the original Toyota FT-1 concept.
The new Supra is being developed jointly with BMW. It will share its underpinnings with the upcoming BMW Z4. That said, unlike the Z4, it will have a hard-top. Both cars are likely to share the same engine, drivetrain and suspension, albeit with bespoke tunes and setups. Customers can expect a range of engine choices including turbocharged 4 and 6-cylinder units mated to dual-clutch transmissions.
