And then, finally, the tease will be over. What's more, the sports car is confirmed for Australia.

The Toyota Supra will make its global production debut at the 2019 Detroit motor show in January, ending the protracted, drawn-out tease. What's more, it'll be here in the second half of next year.

By this point, there are very few secrets about the reborn Toyota sports car. We've even driven it, with Paul Maric declaring it a car worthy of the legendary Supra badge, and recent leaks have offered a good look at what'll actually make up the interior.

It's looking like there will be 20i, 30i and 40i powertrains on offer – that's using BMW naming structures, as you've probably gathered – meaning turbocharged four- and six-cylinder petrol engines will be available.

In the related BMW Z4, the 20i/30i are powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine making 145kW/320Nm and 190kW/400Nm respectively.

The M40i, meanwhile, pumps out 250kW and 500Nm in the Z4, with those bigger outputs coming from a 3.0-litre displacement and six inline cylinders. No manual is listed on the leaked specification document, with the only transmission an automatic with the code GA8HP51Z, likely an eight-speed ZF unit.

Behind the wheel, there are plenty of BMW pieces scattered around. Get the full breakdown here, and let us know if the idea of BMW touch points at Toyota prices is appealing for you.
