I just noticed the eye sight system up near the mirror. Ugh, I had hoped they could have kept that crap out of the car. Driver aids in a back to basics sports car just seem so wrong.

Oh boy, if those renders are accurate, I'm not sure how I feel about it. Something about the proportions look off to me. The way the bumpers and fenders are shaped looks like a large family sedan shape was shrunken to fit onto a compact coupe, like the panels are too large for the chassis. Then "sportified" with extra body/bumper lines. Idk, the current gen looks pretty athletic even if all the details weren't perfect. Maybe I'll like it better when the official photos come out.

Yep, looks pretty bulky. But when you compare to the well sculpted body of the Supra, it’s hard to not look bulky.

Im pretty sure the bulk is just a lot of body cladding to hide the shape of the car. There is no reason a flat 4 needs a hoodline that high

Some people complained about the tone down Supra nose, and or that they didn't see one on the spy shots. So I did my best. Working with Paint so it's not perfect, but you get the idea.

I don't hate it. If they sort out the crappy engine, might have to get one.

These look good, definitely an improvement for the front bumper.

It also reminds me of the 2013 Honda Accord coupe rear:

I think it's handsome and looks like what the next Z car should look like (not the ugly renderings we have seen floating around). I really hope the 2.4L engine can do this car justice.

It looks like it is all there just with a different (and more attractive IMO) interpretation. The GR86 bumper looks exactly like the bottom half of the bumper here.

I know. It looks good. That's why I'm surprised!

Yeah it's crazy how they followed their current design language and still made it look good, sporty, and unique. Supra designers take note

The problem with the Zupra is they tried to put a FT-1 shell over a Z4; whereas the designers from Calty originally envision a 2+2 and were hoping it would have been approved on the upcoming LC platform.
