2020 Toyota GR Supra RZ Horizon Blue Edition

2020 Toyota GR Supra RZ Horizon Blue Edition

Special edition Supras are beginning to show up

The A90-generation Toyota Supra is now more than a year old, which means its time to expect some updates to roll out for the sports coupe. To its credit, Toyota is wasting little time getting that ball rolling with the arrival of the special edition Supra Horizon Blue Edition. Based specifically on the RZ trim of the sports coupe — it’s a JDM model — the GR Supra RZ Horizon Blue Edition arrives with a steady diet of new and exclusive features, none more obvious than the splashy Horizon Blue paint finish. The Toyota GR Supra RZ Horizon Edition is limited to just 100 units, all of which are earmarked for the Japanese market.

2020 Toyota Supra GR450 by Manhart Performance

This is the kind of Toyota Supra that we deserve

In the short time that it’s been around, the Toyota Supra has become an aftermarket darling. Tuners have taken to building programs for the A90 Supra with as much fervor as the nameplate commands. Even companies known for building kits for other automakers have turned their attention to the Supra.

Count Manhart Performance on that list. The German house that’s best known for tuning BMW models has prepared a comprehensive program for the Supra that includes an engine upgrade program, suspension tweaks, new wheels, and a host of aesthetic modifications to the exterior and interior. The result is a raunchy Japanese sports car that now lives up to the revered Supra nameplate.

2021 Toyota Supra A91 Edition

2021 Toyota Supra A91 Edition

The A91 Edition is limited to just 1,000 examples and features some nice exclusive touches

Toyota made some major changes to the 2021 Toyota Supra, the most important of which come in the form of updated power output for the six-cylinder model and the introduction of the four-cylinder Supra to the U.S. market. However, there was another gem hidden in Toyota’s announcement, and that is the Supra A91 Special Edition. It doesn’t come with any extra power over the standard model, but it is based on the six-cylinder model, so it does have the extra power.

The Japanese sports car with German DNA gets tricked out by one of the finest tuners in the land

The all-new Toyota Supra A90 is an aftermarket tuner’s dream, and it hasn’t taken long for the world’s best tuners to build programs for the returning sports car icon. As you know, AC Schnitzer typically specializes in building aftermarket kits for BMW models but, since the Toyota Supra is a BMW at heart, AC Schnitzer is able to show it some love. AC Schnitzer’s program for the sports car is as all-encompassing as it gets. There’s a full line of upgrades to the Supra’s exterior, interior, engine, and a lot of mechanical parts in between. AC Schnitzer hasn’t rolled out the full price list for this new program, but you can bet it won’t be cheap.

2020 Toyota GR Supra Heritage Edition

2020 Toyota GR Supra Heritage Edition

Toyota pays tribute to the long-standing relationship between the Supra and the aftermarket tuning world

The Toyota Supra has arrived at the 2019 SEMA Auto Show, and in true form, we’re not just talking about one Supra at SEMA. Nope. There are multiple Supras in attendance at SEMA, each wearing a different alter-ego. One of these models is called the Supra Heritage Edition. It’s the most subtle of the Supras in SEMA, but it’s also the one that we identify with the most. Part of the Supra Heritage Edition’s appeal is its connection to the aftermarket tuning world. Toyota created it as an homage to the tuning scene, something that past versions of the Supra were all very familiar with. Granted, the Supra Heritage Edition doesn’t boast any of the over-the-top madness that past custom Supras could claim, but as a celebration of the relationship between the nameplate and the aftermarket tuning scene, the Supra Heritage Edition is as good as it gets.

2019 Toyota Supra Drift By HKS (2JZ)

2019 Toyota Supra Drift By HKS (2JZ)

HKS drops the iconic 2JZ-GTE engine in the fifth-gen Supra

The 2019 Toyota GR Supra Drift by HKS is a heavily modified Supra that will make its debut at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed in July. Built by HKS, a Japanese company known for modifying cars and selling aftermarket parts, this Toyota Supra looks like a full-fledged race car and drifts like no other fifth-generation Supra. The really cool thing is that it has a 2JZ-GTE engine under the hood instead of the Supra’s BMW-sourced mill.

Are you happy that the Supra is finally back but you’re also upset that it has a BMW engine? Are you crazy about the iconic 2JZ-GTE in the previous Supra? Well, this might be the car you’ve been looking for. It looks like the new Supra but it sounds and drifts like the old Supra. The bad news is that you can’t take it home. The good news is that you can see it in action at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

2020 Toyota Supra - Driven

2020 Toyota Supra - Driven

The legend returns for round five

Toyota introduced the Supra nameplate back in the late ‘70s with the A40 Celica Supra. The second-gen A60 arrived in 1981, followed by the third-gen A70 in 1986, and the fourth-gen A80 in 1993. Unfortunately, following dwindling sales numbers and stricter emissions laws, the U.S.-spec A80 got the axe in 1998. Now, more than two decades later, this import performance icon is back for an all-new fifth generation. Unsurprisingly, the Supra has been subjected to nearly endless scrutiny from both the motoring press and the enthusiast public, but first-hand experience has been sorely lacking. Until now, that is. Toyota flew me out to Virginia to drive the 2020 Supra both on a racetrack and on the street, and I found out exactly what it brings to the table.

2019 Toyota GR Supra GT4 Concept

2019 Toyota GR Supra GT4 Concept

The Japanese manufacturer tries to sell this racer as merely a concept but it looks ready to hit the track to us

The Supra name has been in a close-knit relationship with racing for decades, and this tradition is bound to continue with the fifth-generation model. After announcing that the Supra will replace the Camry in NASCAR, Toyota now gives us a preview of what could be a very popular customer racing car: the Supra GT4, the company’s first factory-developed GT4 racer.

The GT4 class is the baby brother of GT3: cheaper and less complicated to operate while also pertaining to closer wheel-to-wheel action due to the limited aerodynamic dependency of the cars in comparison to the GT3s. That’s why GT4 is, nowadays, a booming class just like TCR is in the world of touring car racing. Still, that doesn’t mean they are cheap. A Mercedes-AMG GTG GT4, for instance, will set you back $227,000 while the Multimatic-built Ford Mustang GT4 costs in excess of $260,000 but you can also go for something cheaper like the [$179,000 Porsche Cayman Clubsport GT4-art184037]. By comparison, any GT3 car is well over $400,000 to purchase.

In this context, the Supra GT4 might become a very interesting entry-level GT4 option as it’s based on a not-so-expensive platform - it’s no McLaren or Mercedes-AMG GT. It’s also an official project, and that means it has credibility on its side right out of the box. Until now, if you wanted to go GT4 racing in a Toyota, your only choice was the GPRM-developed GT86 GT4 which never really performed on par with its rivals. Things must change now that the Supra is just around the corner.

Update 3/12/2019: We’ve updated this review with fresh images of the 2019 Toyota GR Supra GT4 Concept that we took at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of the page!

2019 Toyota Supra Launch Edition

2019 Toyota Supra Launch Edition

It’s not as special as the first-production model that fetched $2.1 million at Barrett-Jackson, but the Supra Launch Edition is unique in its own right

Like most new cars these days, the new Toyota Supra is coming with a first-off-the-line version called the Launch Edition. Based on the sports car’s Premium trim, the Supra Launch Edition sets itself apart from the standard Supra through a number of special details and exclusive touches. Only 1,500 units of the Supra Launch Edition will be available, all of which are earmarked for the U.S. market. The first-production Supra is included in the first 1,500 units. Unfortunately, no one’s going to get it anymore since it was already auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona for a whopping $2.1 million. The Supra Launch Edition, on the other hand, starts off at just $55,250.

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.

Toyota Will Finally Show Off the 2020 Supra at the Detroit Auto Show

Detroit Motor Show just got “Lit as Supra”

It’s official. After years of anticipation, Toyota has finally announced that the new 2020 Toyota Supra will make its debut at the Detroit Auto Show in 2019. Toyota says that that the auto industry’s “worst-kept secret” is finally out, and production of the new Supra will begin in the first half of 2019.

Is the souped-up Supra testing at the Nürburgring now?

There are images aplenty of the new Supra, but these days, Toyota’s been testing a race-prepped version of their new sports car at the Nordschleife which we think might be the mule for the upcoming sportier Supra.

With this occasion, we got a chance to get a little closer to the Supra, and we like what we see. For example, we got an eyeful of the interior, with the center stack lacking any sort of camouflage with the big infotainment screen on top of the central attraction. It all seems to be, apart from the racing wheel, pretty much stock, so there’s not much guesswork left to do about how the interior will look, given that some renderings of the interior and exterior were also leaked this week.

2019 Toyota Supra NASCAR Race Car

2019 Toyota Supra NASCAR Race Car

Replaces the Camry in the Xfinity Series starting in 2019

The Toyota Supra is set to return to the market after a 16-year absence. Rumored for many years and teased since 2017, the Supra will make its public debut later in 2018, but Toyota has already introduced a couple of race cars. We’ve seen the first one in the form of an FIA-spec concept at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, while the second one is a somewhat surprising entry in the NASCAR Infinity series.

Unveiled ahead of the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at the Daytona International Speedway, the Supra replaces the Camry in the Xfinity Series starting in 2019. The

Camry

based race car leaves the series after ten competitive years, during which it won four manufacturer championships, two driver titles, and 147 wins as of 2018. This is the first time when the Supra name will be used in any NASCAR series.
