Toyota Supra, Coupe

but, blacktalon, isn't that the same image you posted in post #10?
I agree with blazinasian, the front is most definitely '68-'69 camaro. The rear is much like the previous Supra. Does the sideshot remind anyone else of Ferrari or just me?
Overall, that is really nice looking. I'm not too sure the front really jives with the rest of the car, though. I'd like to see a front 3/4 shot.
can anyone tell me what the numbers in that chart say? I can't quite read it and don't have a program on this machine where I can download and zoom in on it.

qbrozen- It does kinda look like a Ferrari, but I think that the rear 1/4 looks strikiningly similiar to the Aston Martin Vanquish (or any other current day Aston model). Still, the design is nicer than some others I've seen. I just wish they'd make the front look like the Mark IV, just with an "updated" look to it. No more of this retro-fad stuff, please. I've just about had my fill (Ford Thunderbird, PT Cruiser, even Honda Element. They're all good cars, just too much "retro" flavor for my taste.). I can't read the numbers in that article, but did read some new info about the Mark V. I think that one engine used in the Mark V will be a 3.5 liter V-6 (still wish they'd continue with the inline-6, but no real business case for it I guess...) that produces 325 hp. That's 38 hp more than the 350Z, and hopefully in a car roughly the same weight. I'm just hoping that a Twin Turbo model will follow that will push around 450 hp. That would truly be Supra-dupra.
#15 of 16 front is very toyota 2000GT

side view is very Aston Martin, which is not a bad thing at all
#16 of 16 2005 Supra V

R&T stated a few months ago that the Tokyo Auto Show later this month would be the coming out party for the legendary Supra. Expect a 3.5L Six with around 290-300HP.
Also consider the tact taken with the Celica. Weight: 2500lbs. 350Z: 3285. Expect the new Supra to come in around 3100-3150 without Turbos, T-top reinforcements, or an inefficient inline-6 design hurting packaging. Toyota will probably go Hybrid for an extra 75HP to top the 350-375 C5/C6 Vette.
And Blacktalon, those pcs have been floating arund since 2000, I wouldn't put much into them. That ain't 'Yota style!
