Car and Driver received word from Japanese publication Best Car about the news and claims that the new Supra will take design inspiration from the FT-1 Concept of early 2014. Consequently, it will be a sleek-looking two door with styling far less conservative than the GT86.

As the new Supra is being co-developed with BMW, details about its powertrain are shrouded in secrecy. However, it is speculated that three different engines options will be available, starting off with a 255 hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four and a 340 hp 3.0-liter V6 also aided by a turbocharger. Further down the road, a 2.5-liter hybrid will join the range.
