CARS.COM — Toyota unveiled its Gazoo Racing Supra Racing Concept at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, which is a) a mouthful and b) not at all related to the Flintstones. What it is, however, is the next step toward bringing back the beloved Supra name, something that hasn’t graced any new car in the world since 2002. Will the car be as good as we want to believe its predecessor was?

The Supra Racing Concept looks … like a racecar. Which makes everything look at least a little cool? (If you don’t believe me, do an image search for the Lexus SC430 GT500.) It looks cool and probably fast and maybe it will actually compete in a real-life racing series instead of being part of an update for Gran Turismo Sport.
We desire the street car, though. The Supra is part of a joint development agreement between BMW and Toyota, and spy shots indicate more than a little BMW design language; that makes sense for what is most likely the next generation of Z4, but we’re talking about the Supra, and for the sake of argument are going to forget about the Z4 since it isn’t iconic (sorry, BMW).
