There is a trend that seeks to bring the past into the present, with retro designs and products. It is indeed reviving the Supra, one of it not its proudest achievements in motorsports.

The race-liveried GR Supra Racing Concept wears the No. 90, a historical reference to Supra's internal codename and, according to Toyota, "a big visual clue to the fact that this concept heralds Supra's return in a fifth generation".

Some of the Supra's younger fans might not know that the vehicle has quite the racing pedigree. Besides being a race-going concept, it gives the first look into how the production version of the next generation Supra will be like.

Toyota Supra fans, you were not having visions. More importantly, the GR Supra design study also previews the aesthetic of a future Toyota Supra production auto - with the decision to showcase the auto initially as a racing vehicle heavily suggesting a motorsports version of the all-new Toyota Supra is in the pipelines.

Toyota unveiled its GR Supra Racing Concept at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The windshield and side windows are plastic. It continues with the front-engined, rear-wheel drive layout.
