It’s been two years since we’ve seen spyshots of the new Toyota Supra, and while the buildup to its eventual unveiling is still agonisingly long, the pieces are starting to fall together. Last weekend, the company debuted a camouflaged prototype at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and now a couple of spyshots have surfaced giving us our best look at the interior yet.

As we’ve seen in previous photos, the new Supra, codenamed A90, will get an cabin that is separate from the one in the upcoming BMW Z4 on which it’s based, unlike the virtually identical 86 and Subaru BRZ twins. Even with the disguise on top, it’s obvious that the dashboard design is unique with a different fascia and air vents, and there’s also a Toyota-specific three-spoke steering wheel.

That’s not to say that it’s all Toyota in here, as there’s also plenty of switchgear from Munich. The buttons on the steering wheel and the climate controls will be familiar to BMW owners, and so would the electronic gearlever. The iDrive infotainment system also makes an appearance, as evident by the freestanding centre display and the rotary controller next to the gearlever. A digital instrument cluster can be seen as well.

So far, we know that the Supra will come with a BMW-derived turbocharged straight-six petrol engine and 50:50 weight distribution, plus a chassis tuned separately from the Z4 and thus drive completely differently. While that sounds like a potent recipe, purists may bemoan the fact that a manual transmission won’t be offered, with the new car being an automatic-only affair.
