The extremely hotly anticipated 2020 Toyota Supra is actually, finally, really going to be revealed at the Detroit auto show in production form, uncamouflaged.

Toyota itself called the Supra “one of the worst-kept secrets in the auto industry,” but we’re glad it has a sense of humour about it, while confirming it will indeed be at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in mid-January 2019.

Despite it being a badly kept secret, we haven’t seen it without camo, or in non-race car trim, or in a picture that wasn’t a render.

The first production version of the car will be not only shown in Detroit, but also sold at auction.

Yes, you read that right: the first production Toyota Supra will be sold at auction to the highest bidder, and delivered when full production starts in the first half of 2019, with all proceeds will be going to charity.

What is hopefully the last in a long line of teaser photos depicts an over-the-hood view of a beautiful countryside with an incredible-looking road ahead, and we can’t think of a better way to express what driving really means than that. We really hope Toyota gets it right with the Supra.

The Supra is the product of a joint effort between Toyota and BMW, and will share parts with the new Z4. The revival of the Supra is part of Akio Toyoda’s desire to bring back the “three brothers” of the sports car arm of Toyota, which also includes the MR2 and the Celica.

The NAIAS opens in Detroit on January 14, 2019.
