Orange 2020 Toyota Supras Spotted On Set Of Fast & Furious 9

The next installment of the Fast & Furious franchise is currently filming overseas and spy shots caught some on-set photos which seem to signify the return of a legend. In several photos shared on the @_pw40_ Instagram page, several 2020 Toyota Supras can be seen being off-loaded from a truck and filming scenes with a military-style vehicle.

Particularly of note, is the fact that all the Supras are painted orange, just like the now iconic Mk IV Supra driven by the late Paul Walker in The Fast & The Furious. Though in these pictures, the 2020 Supras are not rocking any exterior graphics or a massive wing. Slightly unfortunate but times change.

Now, we all remember that in the first film Paul Walker’s “Brian O’Connor” character drove the Supra. With his untimely passing, the character was effectively retired in Furious 7. This begs the question, who will sit in the seat of the new Supra which will be an obvious homage to Paul Walker? For hardcore fans this is going to be a big deal.

Currently, there are rumors that John Cena will drive the Supra. Though he is not seen in the driver’s seat in any of the on set photos or videos so far.

I am not as invested in who will be driving it; I am just glad to see the film pay tribute. The original Supra from the first film holds a special place for me as that car was actually owned by Craig Lieberman who has been a friend and mentor of mine. Craig also served as a technical advisor on the first two Fast & Furious films and was part of the car-casting process for Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift.

If you’ve ever wanted to know how some of the scenes in the early films were shot, or how the cars were built, I highly suggest following Craig on Instagram (@craiglieberman_42). He also has a book full of behind the scenes stories as well.

If any more set photos leak out or I get any more information, I’ll be sure to post it. In the meantime, use the comments bellow or tweet to me (@MotorworldHype) and let me know which Fast & Furious character you think should drive the 2020 Supra in the next film.
