W​ith reviews of the much-awaited Toyota Supra now smothered all over the internet, one of the key parts of every one of those articles has been the fact that it is based on the BMW Z4.

S​ome people have said that's a good thing, with the Z4 being a cracking platform to work from, but others have claimed that the Supra simply isn't Toyota enough and is a let down compared to its A80 predecessor.

W​ell thanks to the talented guys at Budget Direct, you can now see what the Supra would look like if Toyota had partnered with other companies instead of BMW. Let's start with...

T​here's no way you'd mistake that hood scoop and bonnet line for anything other than a Corvette. Would this Chevy Supra have a V8?!

T​he next time we see a new generation of Supra, it'll almost certainly be electric. So why not build a partnership with Tesla now?

S​upra by Volvo

S​traightening some of the lines to add a pinch of Volvo has made this Supra look more like its potentially more enjoyable cousin, the GT86.
