The Toyota Supra is back with a brand new edition. It’s been 21 years since the last Toyota Supra was produced, and the company is looking backward and forward with this new model. Now the company thinks its time for a new 2000GT-inspired Supra (the 2000GT is still a super-popular car, and was Toyota’s first worldclass sportscar in the 1960s – they’re so popular still they sell for over $1 million at auction.)
Also, the Supras produced in the 90s are still very popular cars. In part this is because of how well they stack up against other cars of the same era and class. European sports cars were more expensive, and the Supra is still famous for allowing owners to modify it to a high degree, both the body and also the engine. Everyone has seen customized Supras, right? People have really pushed that 6-cyl to huge horsepower ratings.
What about power?
The 2020 rear-wheel drive Supra will be made in Austria and will come in 4 (mostly for non-North American markets) and 6 cylendars. The 6 will have 33hp and the 4 will have between 197 and 255 hp. The expectation is that the 6 will run a 7:40 on track.
The price will be $50k plus $1k for destination charge for the 6 cyl, with the 4 being less expensive.
