2020 Toyota Supra lineup for SEMA 2019

Toyota brought four cool Supra-based concepts to SEMA 2019

Toyota’s usual lineup for the SEMA Show is centered mostly around SUVs and trucks, but the 2019 edition brings the fifth-generation Supra into the spotlight. The Japanese carmaker took the 2019 SEMA Show by storm with a handful of modified Supras, either built by aftermarket tuners or developed by Toyota itself to preview upcoming parts and accessories. Here’s the four most interesting coupes you’ll find on the show floor.

10 Surprising Vehicles with More Power than the 2020 Toyota Supra

10 Surprising Vehicles with More Power than the 2020 Toyota Supra

Speaking of surprises, there are a number of them in this list

It seems fair to say that many people were underwhelmed by the Toyota Supra. People knocked Toyota for the Supra’s looks. Some were upset about its high pricing. And a lot of other people didn’t think too kindly to the engine choices that Toyota prepared for its returning sports car. A base version that produces less than 200 horsepower? Really? The range-topping version of the Supra does have 355 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque at its disposal, but even that came from a BMW-sourced engine. Truth be told, the Supra’s 355-horsepower output isn’t that bad. But it also could’ve been higher, especially when you consider that so many other models from different segments can carry that much power without having to be a sports car, specifically one that has to carry the legacy of one of Toyota’s most iconic nameplates. If you’re wondering how many vehicles have more power than the 2020 Supra, we compiled a list made up of 10 of them. And, if for nothing else, this list may surprise you.

10 Exciting Cars That Will Cost You As Much as the 2020 Toyota Supra

10 Exciting Cars That Will Cost You As Much as the 2020 Toyota Supra

With its $50,000 MSRP, the 2020 Supra can be compared with some mighty interesting models

The fifth generation Supra A90 is no longer aspiring to be a Porsche 911 slayer, but, given its price, you can pit it against some pretty brisk, fun-to-drive cars. Toyota designed the latest Supra to be fun to drive, its proving ground being the Nurburgring. Company CEO Akio Toyoda was heavily involved in the development process of the A90. He said that he gauged the experience of driving the new Supra, which is more compact than ever before, in comparison to the old model he used to drive around the ’Green Hell’ to learn the track.

The production version hasn’t been put to the test yet, but journalists were allowed to take turns driving some development prototypes around the Jarama track last year. Car & Driver wrote that "there is a smoothness to the Supra that we haven’t felt in a BMW in years," and we know that it will joyfully slide, but what other cars you can look for if you’ve only got Supra money in your pocket? Well, We’ve decided to explore the diverse range of models that you could go for with that "Supra" money you’re hanging on to.

2020 Toyota Supra vs 2014 Toyota FT-1 Concept

2020 Toyota Supra vs 2014 Toyota FT-1 Concept

The Toyota Supra owes a lot of its makeup to the Toyota FT-1 Concept

The arrival of the Toyota Supra earlier this year marked the culmination of year’s worth of development from Toyota. Most people forget this now, but word of the Supra’s revival goes all the way back to 2007 when Toyota unveiled the FT-HS Concept at the 2007 North American International Auto Show. That never materialized, but it also didn’t stop the speculation surrounding the Supra’s fate, especially when Toyota filed a trademark for the “Supra” name back in 2010. Then, in 2014, Toyota debuted the FT-1 Concept at the same show as the FT-HS Concept seven years before. For all intents and purposes, the FT-1’s arrival kick-started the development of the new Supra. Toyota and BMW worked together on the development of the sports car alongside the latter’s Z4 Roadster. It took some time, but after five years, the world finally saw the production Supra at this year’s NAIAs. As expected, a lot of what made the new Supra what it is today can be tied back to the FT-1 Concept from five years ago. How much, exactly? Let’s find out.

2020 Toyota Supra Vs. 2019 BMW Z4

2020 Toyota Supra Vs. 2019 BMW Z4

Are they really clones, or is there more to it?

Few sports cars can rustle the ‘ole jimmies quite like the 2020 Supra and 2019 BMW Z4. Built as a collaborative effort between the two automaker giants, each is a rebirth of a long-lost nameplate, sliding into a market where sports cars are on the decline. However, despite efforts to meet the demands of an enthusiast-driven public, many decry the Supra and Z4 as nothing more than badge-engineered twins designed to leverage fond memories. But the question remains - how do these two machines stack up against one another?

2020 Toyota Supra vs Toyota GR Supra Performance Line TRD Concept

Better Aerodynamic Proficiency For The Toyota GR Supra Performance Line Concept TRD

Only weeks after the official debut of the new 2020 Toyota Supra, the Japanese brand has released what could be considered a spiced up version of the same car - the Toyota Supra TRD Concept. Revealed at the Osaka Automesse, the GR Supra Performance Line TRD Concept is a looker, but I wonder do you find it as dashing as the Supra mk4 TRD 3000GT. Yup, that was a thing, and that particular Supra had the TRD developed body kit along with a number of other attachments. I will leave the comparison between the awesome Supra TRD 3000GT with the new Toyota Supra TRD concept for another day, but now, I’d like to explore and propose to you what the modern Toyota Racing Development team prepped for the latest Supra. I told you numerous times that I like the way the new car looks, but can the TRD Concept further sharpen my desire for it?

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.

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

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.

Cars That We Can’t Wait to See in 2019

There are so many that we just don’t know what to do

What does the future behold? There are countless future classics ready to slide out from under the sheets of which they’ve been covered, and it’s all set to happen in 2019. There will be new EVs, new muscle cars, and a complete evolution of luxury cars. One of America’s most loved sports cars, the Chevy Corvette, is set move into a mid-engine configuration - something that’s been in the works for decades. With that said, we have a lot to be excited for, and this is a list of the models that we just can’t wait any longer for.

Visual Comparison: The 2020 Toyota Supra and the BMW Z4

They Do Not Look Similar

With the leak of the first picture of the all-new 2020 Toyota Supra A90, we are finally getting a proper look at the most anticipated Japanese car in years. While the photography posted on the SupraMKV.com forum does not do enough justice to the new car, one thing is certain - Toyota’s designers and its administration are courageous. Designers created a car that looks a lot like the Toyota FT-1 Concept from four years ago, and all the key people in bureaucracy offices said yes to it. Considering the fact that Toyota basically signed BMW to develop a whole new car, it is only logical to make a fast visual comparison between the new 2020 Toyota Supra A90 and the 2019 BMW Z4. While both of these do have basically the same drivetrain, their exterior visage seems to be completely different. Heck, one is a coupe, the other - a roadster.

Visual Comparison: the 2020 Toyota Supra vs the Toyota FT-1

The new Supra Is Curiously Close To The FT-1 In Terms Of Design

The process of maturing from the Concept phase to the production phase usually entails a dramatic design transformation of a car. Not so in the case of the new 2020 Toyota Supra A90. With the design heavily based around the Toyota FT-1 Concept, I can clearly say that Toyota designers are brazen. Under the engineering hand of Tetsuya Tada, the Supra’s design team managed to capture all the important styling cues from the FT-1 and successfully translate them into the production car. At least judging by the one leaked photo that revealed the front end of the new Supra. Sure, the photo was captured in a transportation wagon, probably headed for Detroit, but it does reveal main cues rooted in the design of the FT-1 that was unveiled five years ago at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

So, how does exactly the new 2020 Toyota Supra A90 compare with the Toyota FT-1 Concept?

Why the 2019 Toyota Supra will Never Live up to the Legacy of its Predecessor

Or maybe it will?

If you’re one of the people waiting with baited breath for the new Toyota Supra to arrive so you can put one in your garage, I can almost bet more then half of you will be disappointed. And I’m referring to people that plan and will ACTUALLY buy one. And I say that because 98-percent of the time most cars are hated on loved online, it’s done so by people who have never owned and probably will never own previous iterations of said vehicles.
