I know – call me out for gratuitous 2020 Toyota Supra blogging here. But when I noticed that the new Supra's emblem looks like the one from the famous MKIV of the '90s, I just had to examine how similar the two are.
The 2020 Supra emblem typeface was made from scratch "and the new" S is based on a turn at Nurburgring. "
As you can see from the picture above, with the two emblems similarly scaled for easiest comparison, the answer is … I don't know , medium similar?
Both the new fifth-generation and last Supra's "Supra" are written in a brush-looking script, but the new one is much earlier.
As to What typeface is used exactly, the font of the old emblem is a popular topic of debate on Supra forms. Most of the threads found included at least one "not another font thread" comment. Heck, the Supra MKV forum was already comparing the old and new ones over the summer.
I did find one thread where somebody was making their own, using a combination of MT and Script Brush Script with some photoshopping to get the rest of the way. But it seems that the typeface was custom created by Toyota, and not something you can download from the rack anywhere.
That's the case with the new logo. A Toyota spokesperson told me that the 2020 Supra emblem typeface was made from scratch "and the new" is based on a turn at Nurburgring. "Hell yeah, I live for automotive information you can file under Mildly Interesting and if you do too you're welcome.
The company's rep did not immediately answer the inevitable follow-up question of "which turn;" I'm hoping a Nurburgring super out there somewhere will see this post and enlighten us in the comments.
So unfortunately I can't give you a font to download for your Supra emblem tattoo stencil or whatever. But you are the old badge Toyota part number 7544314180, and the new one is Toyota part number 51147497931! And now we know that the two badges are not exactly the same, even though they look extremely similar to a casual glance.
