It was just a "place holder" photo that Bold Ride uses until official photos appear.

Again, sorry about the confusion guys.
Is the teaser posted by Toyota? If not, then the Mirai might be the "Supra". This teaser is then the one of the Lotus Elise S Cup R.

Ok, so this is the car in teaser. Not the Mirai.

Let us wait for more info on the Mirai and the RC-F (specs).

Oh, I can't wait. This is the most exciting car for me. I'm experiencing the same anticipation as 4 years ago with the Toyota FT-86. I just hope this car is meant to be light and not as heavy as the RC-F. Wonder how heavy the NSX will be.

The Toyota/BMW sports car CONCEPT will be at this years Detroit Auto Show!!

My step-father is pretty high up at Toyota Corporate in Torrance, CA. He said, he was informed that the first concept version of the Toyota/BMW Sports car will be debuted at the North American International Auto Show held in Detroit (Starting this monday 1/13). There will be very few details if any on the vehicle and is scheduled to be a 2018 or 2019 production model.

Let's hope this is true!! Ill post pics when they become available

It feels like every time I see a thread or post like this. They,

-Have a family member or friend that works with Toyota that's "High up"
-Is a dealer, that went to a secret meeting
-Found this news on some random website
-Just making up BS

well naturally there are higher ups in these car companies who have a family and being human, they'll have friends too. and if youre into cars and know these ppl and they tell you info, where do you think they'll spread the news? ding ding! that's right the internet. and more specifically, car forums on the internet.

You are literally the second person to post BMW in this thread with that post but ok.

I seem to recall a post claiming that the BMW/Toyota collaboration was NOT a Supra but can't seem to find it. Which I was taking to mean that the Mirai is either BMW/Toyota or Supra, not both and possibly neither. But since I can't find the article guess I'm the crazy one
