The camouflaged image was sent via Toyota’s Twitter account

The new Toyota Supra will finally make its long-awaited public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, marking the return of a motoring icon that’s so far been shrouded in secrecy.

The image you see here was sent out via Toyota’s European Twitter account, along with a very simple caption: “Toyota Supra is back. A90. At Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018.”

So it seems the Supra, which has been in development since 2012, will finally break cover.

The A90 Supra has been developed in conjunction with BMW, sharing its chassis and turbocharged straight-six engine with the German brand’s upcoming Z4. The Supra is also heavily rumoured to be offered exclusively with a dual-clutch automatic, eschewing a manual option.

The Supra has also been confimed as an entrant into NASCAR’s Xfinity series next year, with the American racing body and Toyota releasing a joint promo clip on Friday.

What else do we know? Not much. But the curtain might be at last pulled back at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, July 12 to 15 in the UK.
