Here's Another Design Take on the 2020 Toyota Supra and Now We Know What it Should Have Looked Like

Here’s Another Design Take on the 2020 Toyota Supra and Now We Know What it Should Have Looked Like

Toyota put itself in a design box and, in the process, limited its creativity

Are you one of those who thinks that Toyota could’ve done much better in designing the new Supra? Ever wonder what the sports car could’ve looked like if the design was treated differently? Auto designer Roman Miah took a shot at redesigning Toyota’s new sports car, and the results are, well, interesting. Miah’s design interpretation of the new Supra builds off of what the new Supra looks like and taps into retro resources, specifically the designs of past versions of the Supra. It’s a similar approach to what Toyota did but done in a slightly different fashion. There are a lot of differences between Toyota’s design of the new Supra and Miah’s own rendering. Both versions stayed true to honoring the Supras of the past, but in doing so, they arrived at the same design destination by taking different roads to get there.

14 Little-Known Facts About The 2020 Toyota Supra A90

14 Little-Known Facts About The 2020 Toyota Supra A90

This Is An Epic Car With Some Culturally Unacceptable Issues

I have been in the business of car journalism for more than a decade, yet, not once in all this time have I witnessed so much scrutiny of a car as we’re seeing right now with the new 2020 Toyota Supra. I can’t say it was unexpected, but literally, everybody is so mesmerized by the newcomer. Not necessarily in a good way, either. Personally, I do believe that this car is possibly one of the best to appear in this decade, but the question is, is this really a Supra? While that question may never be answered, I can tell you a lot of cool things about the new car, and we’re here to talk about them.

Toyota Wins Dakar For The First Time as Mini and Peugeot Crumble

Toyota Wins Dakar For The First Time as Mini and Peugeot Crumble

It’s Nasser Al-Attiyah’s third victory with a third different manufacturer

With Peugeot exiting stage left, it seemed like Mini and Toyota would battle it out for the victory in the 2019 Dakar Rally and, indeed, it was Toyota man, Nasser Al-Attiyah, who delivered the goods, winning in a commanding fashion as his nearest rivals faltered.

The 2019 Dakar Rally, which keeps being a mislabeled event as it’s been taking place in South America for a decade already, proved grueling although the competitors never went further than Peru. It was the first time since the inaugural edition that the Dakar didn’t travel across more than one country, but that didn’t mean it lacked in either excitement or drama.

Someone Paid $2.1 Million To Score the First-Production Toyota Supra

Someone Paid $2.1 Million To Score the First-Production Toyota Supra

That’s a lot of money, even for a highly anticipated first-production model

The first-production Toyota Supra sold for a whopping $2.1 million at Barrett-Jackson’s charity auction in Scottsdale, Arizona over the weekend. It’s a staggering sum, even for a first-production unit of a sports car that has been hyped up for more than five years. The hype is real, folks, even if the reception of the Supra isn’t as hot as Toyota probably expected. Still, the polarizing reaction had no effect on the first-production model’s appeal. Bids flew around furiously before ultimately topping out at $2.1 million. The winning bidder gets to take home the first-production model, which bears the VIN “20201,” a nod towards model year (2020) of the Supra and the first model out of the production line (1). In addition to the first-production Supra, the winning bidder also receives a full VIP race track experience, a customized professional racing suit, a pair of VIP and hot passes to the TOYOTA OWNERS 400 - Richmond Raceway, and a chance to drive the race’s pace car with none other than Michael Waltrip. All the producers from the auction will go to a number of charities, including the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.

How Much BMW DNA Can Be Found in the 2020 Toyota Supra?

Welcome to the BMW parts bin fest that is the new Supra’s interior

Compare photos of the 2020 Toyota Supra’s interior with what BMW is offering in the 2019 Z4 and two facts become immediately apparent. First, the BMW is much nicer and more modern feeling inside than the Toyota - it looks one generation of cars ahead of it in terms of interior design. Second, the Supra’s interior is a mishmash of older BMW bits which, if you’ve ever driven a fairly recent Bimmer, will be instantly recognizable to you.

2020 Toyota Supra

2020 Toyota Supra

The legend returns after more than two decades!

The fifth generation of the iconic sports car, the 2020 Toyota Supra, marked the brand’s return to the U.S. market after 21 years (and in Japan after 17). Unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, the Supra Mk. 5 goes on sale for the 2020 model with a high-performance six-cylinder engine and Toyota’s latest technology. Unlike its predecessor, the fifth-gen Supra wasn’t developed in-house by Toyota. The coupe is the result of a long collaboration with BMW, from which Toyota borrowed the chassis, engines, and transmission. Together with its motorsport division, Gazoo Racing, Toyota designed the exterior, the cabin, and retuned the suspension system. The new Supra is also the first vehicle developed by Gazoo Racing to go global. These cars were previously restricted to the Japanese market.

Shady Toyota Dealership Buys that Mint-Condition 1994 Supra; Relists it at $500,000

Shady Toyota Dealership Buys that Mint-Condition 1994 Supra; Relists it at $500,000

That’s as much as 10 brand-new Toyota Supras!

The launch of the fifth-generation Supra is feeding into the hype of the previous generation Supra too, apparently. A 1994 example of the fourth generation recently sold on Bring A Trailer for a ludicrous $121,000 and then quickly emerged on the website of Chicago Northside Toyota with a senseless price tag of $500,000.

The new GR Supra seems to help the old Porsche-beating Supra gain momentum even more than before in terms of the sums of money people ask for pristine examples. With only 7,000 miles on the odometer, this particular red model sold on January 3rd on Bring A Trailer and, the other day, the guys at Carscoops noticed the same car for sale at a Chicago Toyota dealer for half a million bucks or $7,902 per month for 60 months. Since then, the said dealer has taken down the downright insulting listing from its website but it still beggars belief that someone thought this would be a sensible thing to do

A 7:40 Nurburgring Lap Time For The Toyota Supra? Toyota Thinks It Can Be Done

A 7:40 Nurburgring Lap Time For The Toyota Supra? Toyota Thinks It Can Be Done

Is it even worth it to post a lap time in the Nurburgring if it’s not going to break any records?

The Toyota Supra has been dissected and prodded over in recent days like no debuting car in recent memory. It’s fitting, then, that the sports coupe is still generating headlines, this time regarding the possibility of a Nurburgring lap time and Toyota’s expectations on what time it can clock if it ended up doing a lap around the famous race track. Apparently, the Japanese automaker believes that the Supra could turn in a lap time of 7:40, even if it ends up running into its speed limiter on the track’s long straight. Whether Toyota actually has plans to bring the Supra to the ‘Ring is still unclear, but if it did, it should be a spectacle in it of itself, even if the incentives of actually running a lap aren’t that great.

Toyota Makes a Good Business Case for Not Offering the Four-Cylinder Supra in the U.S.

Toyota Makes a Good Business Case for Not Offering the Four-Cylinder Supra in the U.S.

A four-cylinder Supra that produces less than 200 horsepower would step on the 86’s toes

As expected, the U.S.-spec Toyota Supra will arrive with just one engine. Toyota made that crystal clear at the 2019 North American International Auto Show, announcing that the U.S.-bound Supra will only be offered with a 3.0-liter, turbocharged, six-cylinder engine that produces 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. No other engine option will be available for the sports car, including the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit that is available in Japan. Depending on the trim and tune, that engine produces 194 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque or 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. If you’re not interested in the six-cylinder Supra, there is one option that you can take: buy a BMW Z4.

The 2020 Toyota Supra has So Many Fake Vents that it Hurts

Toyota Supra’s Fake Vents Do Have A New Name - Design Cues

Did it all go too far with fakery on modern cars? After a whole eternity of waiting, Toyota finally revealed the new Toyota Supra. The impressions are mixed, but it seems that the Internet warriors aren’t fond of it. At all. And while I personally do like the exterior design and actually believe that the Supra will be a wonderful car to drive, I can pinpoint some obvious problems with it. One of the biggest concerns I had after I saw the prototype appear at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed was the incredible amount of fake vents on the Supra. Sure, I did say at the time that I don’t mind it a lot, but I believed that Toyota would, at least, make some of them real. It did not. Our live experience at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show taught us that the new 2020 Toyota Supra GR has as many as five different fake vents.

As much as I want this car to succeed (because I do believe it is seriously good), that much fakery simply puts me off and casts a massive shade over the whole Supra lore.

Our European Friends Will Only Get 900 Toyota Supras This Year

Our European Friends Will Only Get 900 Toyota Supras This Year

The good news is that the first 90 will score the Supra A90 Special Edition

The Toyota Supra is making headlines left and right, and as the unquestioned star of the 2019 North American International Auto Show, it’s only fitting that we uncover more details about Toyota’s new sports car. In somewhat of a surprising twist, Toyota is limiting the Supra’s availability in Europe to just 900 units in the first year of the car’s production. It’s a small volume for a region that has a healthy amount of Supra fanboys, but the good news is that Toyota will also throw in access to an exclusive experience programme and money-can’t-buy rewards for those lucky enough to scoop up the 900 units earmarked for the market. In addition to the promised programs and rewards, Toyota will also offer the first special edition version of the Supra — the Supra A90 Edition — exclusively to the European market.

Is the 2020 Toyota Supra too Expensive? Here’s what You can Buy Instead

$50,000 for a Toyota? Ouch!

The fifth-generation Toyota Supra is finally out in the open and everyone has an opinion about it. Some hate the BMW engineering under the skin and miss the Japanese model, while others like the idea of having a Z4 engine under the hood. Some think that Toyota downgraded the Supra from a competitor to the 911 to a rival for the smaller Cayman, while others don’t mind the more compact body. But have you noticed how much this thing costs?

The Base 2020 Toyota Supra Has Less Power Than the Toyota 86

The Base 2020 Toyota Supra Has Less Power Than the Toyota 86

Nobody saw that coming

The Toyota Supra has arrived, and, well, it hasn’t had the glowing reception Toyota probably expected. We’ve pored over and dissected the Supra, but a new revelation from a Japanese spec sheet of the sports car shows that the base version of the Supra comes with a four-cylinder engine that produces a rather disappointing 197 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. The horsepower figure, in particular, is shocking because it’s less power than the 206-horsepower Toyota 86, a sports car that was supposed to sit well below the Supra in Toyota’s sports car pecking order. Fortunately, the U.S. is unlikely to get the base Supra, leaving us with one less disappointing version of the sports car to think about.
