After a 21-year hiatus, the Supra is returning to North America. Though Toyota teased this last year in England at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the automaker officially confirmed the 2020 Toyota Supra at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, last month.
Toyota promises the new Supra will nod to the 1967 2000 GT and the Supra that lived from 1993 to 2002, both in design and mechanics. But the 2020 Supra will also be a model all of its own. The new Supra will take its power from a 3.0-litre twin-scroll turbo six-cylinder, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. This engine will throw down 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque and enable the Toyota Supra to rocket from 0 to 96 kilometers an hour in just 4.1 seconds.
But the Toyota Supra has always been about design as much as it’s been about performance. Toyota promises eye-catching colours like red, yellow, and blue hues, though you’ll also be able to get the Supra in traditional colors like white and silver.
The interior of the Supra is wholly race-inspired, including sports seats with integrated head restraints.
The 2020 Toyota Supra will go on sale here at High River Toyota this summer.
