Just a few days ago, Toyota hinted that it'd showcase a prototype for the new Supra at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The automaker has also reconfirmed the new Supra "will be faithful to its distinguished heritage as pure, sports vehicle thoroughbred by using a front-mounted, in-line six-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive".

Although it will be closely related to the upcoming new BMW Z4 as the Supra has been developed in conjunction with the German auto giant and will share many components with the new Z4, the two cars are going to look very different from each other.

The teaser provides us with the clearest glimpse of the roadgoing model yet, which comes after the GR Supra Racing Concept that was unveiled in March this year.

Uncharted's developers just revealed a freaky secret about Nathan Drake
Nathan Drake never takes an bullet, or indeed an arrow to the knee, all the bullets are missing him until the final, fatal shot. Uncharted is a cinematic action-adventure video game series where you climb things, shoot things and solve puzzles.

Inside the cockpit for the debut run will be the Supra's chief engineer Testuya Tada and test driver Herwig Daenens, a Dutch racer with considerable ties to the Japanese automaker's European motorsports program. Spy images of development vehicles have hitherto provided the best view of the road auto, shorn of its racing equipment and bodywork.

The announcement comes just a day after the Supra was seen undergoing road tests in right-hand drive form on United Kingdom roads, but that was also camouflaged, this time in a more traditional black and white wrap.

TOYOTA GAZOO Racing also competes at the highest worldwide level in the FIA World Rally Championship with the Yaris WRC, claiming two victories in its debut season in 2017 and scoring a win on Rally Argentina and a number of podium finishes so far this year.

Toyota Europe also says it "expects" the new Supra to go on sale internationally during the first half of 2019.
