Toyota really can't get away from that new Lexus styling and it's exhausting. If you would have told me this was a new LC model, I'd have believed it. Even telling me it was a redesigned FRS I'd believe that. Either of those over the 'mkv supra'
I've been hearing this alot, which is odd to me, because the Supra has always looked (and was a model of) the celica (the FRS), so this is totally in line with the history of both cars.
The Supra and Celica separated in 1986 and had little to nothing to do with each other after that. The FRS (FT86) was supposed to be derived from the AE86. Totally different lines of cars entirely. The Celica and Supra were both longer and wider where the AE86 was narrow and short wheelbase
