Auto World is getting closer to jumping into the JDM pond with a brand new casting. Last week, the 1/64 scale manufacturer posted pre-production photo's of their upcoming Supra release on their Facebook page. This 1993 Toyota Supra will be their first ever Japanese model, which is big coming from a brand who has only produced American cars and trucks to date. While I think we are on the downward swing of the bell-curve regarding the JDM craze, I certainly won't say no to another true-to-scale 1/64 MkIV Supra.

As with most Auto World models, you'll be able to pop the hood and gaze upon a tiny 2JZ engine. My favorite feature though is the fact that they went with a wingless Supra instead of the iconic and gigantic rear spoiler. The Supra will be part of 2021's Release 1 in white and silver paint jobs, with Ultra Red and Ultra Raw chase variants out there for hunters to track down. The Ultra Red model looks absolutely stunning and almost matches a factory, Toyota paint color!

  • I'm excited for these and the Dodge Stealth R/T.

    JDM is indeed on the downward side of the bell curve, with European cars and US Malaise Era stuff becoming the "in thing"; but focusing on Toyota/Lexus, Mitsubishi, Mazda, classic Honda/Acura, and maybe Suzuki or Isuzu, instead of the endless barrage of Nissan, modern Honda, & Subaru that we've been getting for years, might sustain interest in Japanese diecast long enough for AW, Mattel and the others to amortize the cost of tooling and licensing.

  • Not half bad. But with no wing, I may have to pass.
