But then there are cars like the 2020 Toyota Supra , which has a face that isn’t the most well-suited to have a flat piece of steel on its face. An aesthetically unfortunate part of car ownership is that some states require you to stick a front license plate to your vehicle.

Last month, we were suddenly frozen in fear of the prospect of a front -mounted U.S. license plate on the 2020 Toyota Supra , as the open-orifices of the car’s design didn’t leave a lot of room for mounting a thin, ugly rectangle of I’m going to admit that this isn’t very shocking. Does it look bad?

An aesthetically unfortunate part of car ownership is that some states require you to stick a front license plate to your vehicle. Usually it’s fine, as modern bumpers are often designed with this in mind. But then there are cars like the 2020 Toyota Supra, which has a face that isn’t the most well-suited to have a flat piece of steel on its face. What then?

This very important question was asked by a reader named James, who after spending some time taking in the new Supra’s face, wrote, “Looking at it is giving me serious concern and a slight case of anxiety. The picture makes me feel itchy. Where will they put the front plate on the Supra?”

The new Toyota Supra looks fantastic in person as it is , but there were just two things that seemed a little off about it to me. One was obviously its power output, and the other one I couldn’t quite put my finger on—until Here's Where You 're Expected to Put the Front Plate on a 2020 Toyota Supra .

Go to permalink. The Toyota Supra is back for a fifth generation with BMW parts, no manual transmission and a starting MSRP of about ,000. Here's Where You 're Expected to Put the Front Plate on a 2020 Toyota Supra .

He continued, “Is Toyota just gonna slap a plate holder on the snout of this thing and call it a day?” He then pointed out that Mazda RX-8 owners faced similar issues.

I did a quick image search for RX-8s and found that James was absolutely right. This is a beautiful blue RX-8, but with that plate there, does it not look buck-toothed? Does that plate not look grossly out of place?

The new Supra’s front bumper is a cool and sleek-looking thing, with flexed angles and neat shapes. But it’s also not very flat. It’s kind of concave. And it doesn’t look like there’s an easy spot for a license plate to go.

Jason Torchinsky is a lot cleverer at the Photoshopping than I am, but he’s on vacation. So I’ll do my best and mock up what I think a street-legal Supra face would look like–so here’s the Supra without any front plate. I wouldn’t want to cover up that face, either.

Are These the First Photos of the 2020 Toyota Supra? The first full images of the 2020 Toyota Supra have seemingly been leaked by Toyota Germany via a confirmation e-mail received when signing up for the car’s waiting list.

The new Toyota Supra is about to be unveiled and I am pretty excited for the 2020 Supra ! I've always been a fan of the 90s MK4 Supra and I'd love to New Supra is coming soon and I hope Toyota has listened to their audience and is going to show off an amazing sportscar to follow up the iconic 90's

Go to permalink. Have we mentioned that there’s a new Toyota Supra out on this site yet? It’s worth mentioning that fake vents are by no means unique to the Supra ; they’re a near-constant now in the world of auto design, a cruel blight deceiving innocent humans as to where on a car air is either taken

I suppose you could drill some holes in the center of the bumper and attached it that way. It’d be a painful procedure (for the owner) but then you’d also run into the buck-toothed problem.

You could also try to offset it, but I think you could only use the right side, as the left seems like it has some kind of plastic piece there that maybe shouldn’t be covered up.

Or you could tie it to the mesh grille beneath the bumper. This part gets tricky because I’m not sure how big that space actually is and if it would fit a full-sized license plate. Also it makes the car look like it’s being gagged?

Either way, it’s not attractive and I don’t look forward to seeing buck-toothed Supras running around. Of course, you could also omit the front plate and see how long it takes the cops to notice. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, though.

Sadly, it’s almost exactly as bad as we feared. According to screenshots of the Gran Turismo Sport video game sent in to Jalopnik by a reader (thanks, Joe from Chicago), the new Supra bumper gets a fill-in mount right in the middle-hole of its grille, sort of hanging off of the forward tip of the hood, just under the emblem: © Screenshot: Gran Turismo Sport (Joe G.)Here’s what it would roughly look like with an actual plate: Ugh. I actually think it looked better when we mocked it up a little lower last month: UGHH. That’s... something.
