Just a few more months until all the camouflage is removed

The fifth-generation Toyota Supra will be unveiled at the 2019 Detroit motor show, which begins on January 14.

In a reply to one of its own Facebook posts, Toyota Germany stated: "World premiere [of the new Supra] is at the Detroit motor show in January. We still need some patience."

Although the company has since taken down the comment, it was captured by a user on the SupraMkV.com forum.

Toyota has also begun taking pre-orders for the vehicle in major European markets. In order to secure one of the first 900 Supras in Europe, buyers will need to put down a €1000 ($1620) deposit.

The company's European arm says members of the "Supra 900 Club" will have "access to exclusive content, rewards and experiences" as they wait for their cars to arrive in the northern autumn.

The new Supra was developed in collaboration with BMW, and is a platform-mate to the recently-revealed third-generation Z4. Both vehicles will be made by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria.

Although the Z4 and Supra share many visible and under-the-skin components, each car will have its own unique design and tuning. The two-seat Supra will initially be available with a 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six engine, rear-wheel drive and an active differential.

Australia

When CarAdvice drove a late-stage prototype last month, Toyota Australia confirmed the new Supra will go on sale Down Under during the third quarter of 2019.
