I don't think pictures will do it justice. This is going to be one of those cars that needs to be appreciated in the flesh.

Having said that, I like what I'm seeing so far.

The tail is very Sagaris as is the goofy exhaust pipe and it's pure TVR and gorgeous. The face is underwhelming. I'd have liked more "fire" like the Sagaris. It's almost like their were doing a new Sagaris and at the last minute decided to call it Griffith and grafted on a retro-inspired nose. I don't like the Miata look of the face.

I'm pleasantly surprised actually.

A bit of 812 Superfast, a hint of AMG GT/SLS, and classic TVR.

Looks great. Actually thought it was the new Supra at first. I like the DLO without a typical kink. Very clean overall too

The Toyota FT1 borrowed--especially in the tail--from the TVR Sagaris. I hope I will be proven wrong, but the new Supra looks like Snoozeville from the prototypes with the flash of the FT1 long gone.

The new supra prototypes dont seem to have the length to carry the FT1 design.

The new Supra looks like a pathetic, bloated GT86.

But lets hold out for the unveiling.

The front of this car is uninspiring, as is the glasshouse. Almost reminds me of the qvale mangusta. But damn its a TVR so they were probably more worried about the mechanicals anyway.
