Considered as one of the most iconic cars to be released by Toyota, the Supra is finally confirmed for a comeback. The 2019 Toyota Supra promises a new breed of performance, as well as to lure enthusiasts and buyers who have a tender heart for this iconic piece of car engineering.

Toyota has yet to reveal all the details regarding the 2019 Supra. However, the very fact that the company confirmed that it is building it is enough to stir excitement to many in the motoring community.

Following Toyota's announcement, a handful of leaks, spy shots, and speculations have gained traction around the community. While this information has to be taken with a grain of salt, it is interesting to point out that some of these may also bear a speck of truth

The upcoming Toyota Supra is essentially a product of collaboration. The sports car is believed to share its platform with a new BMW roadster that is planned to replace the Z4. The Supra is expected to be available exclusively as a coupe, while its BMW sibling will sport a hardtop design, according to Digital Trends.

Many speculate that Toyota will go full-blown retro with the upcoming Supra. However, with some leaked photos of the upcoming sports car, this will not be the case most likely.

A photo of the 2019 Toyota Supra has been circulating in several motoring blogs and forums lately. It shows the sports car featuring a futuristic design that is hauntingly similar to the FT-1 concept car. While this design concept might easily turn off old-school Supra fans, the design is pleasing to the eyes and shows how committed Toyota is when it comes to the evolution of its design cues.

Not much is known about the engine of the upcoming 2019 Toyota Supra. Word around the community is that the sports car will pack a brand-new V6 engine. A pair of turbochargers is also expected. Something that will push the engine's output to as much as 400 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque.
