    DETROIT (Jan. 14, 2019) –
    Sports car enthusiasts have been waiting more than 20 years for the return of Supra and will soon be able to purchase the 2020 Toyota GR Supra for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $49,990.

    For those fans and collectors anxious to be among the first owners of this iconic sports car, the initial 1,500 production Supras for the U.S. will be Launch Edition models starting at $55,250. Each will be uniquely numbered and have distinctive features signifying the exclusivity and excitement of Supra’s return. Toyota dealers will be handling all orders and the Launch Edition models go on sale in Summer 2019 starting at $55,250.

    The Supra Launch Edition will be available in exterior colors of Absolute Zero White, Nocturnal Black or Renaissance Red 2.0, each featuring high-contrast red mirror caps and 19-inch forged matte black alloy wheels.

    The Absolute Zero White and Nocturnal Black Supra Launch Editions will have a red interior. Each of the racing-inspired seats will be wrapped in red leather, with red leather steering wheel grips, and a red center console with carbon-fiber accents.

    The Renaissance Red 2.0 Supra Launch Edition will feature a black leather-trimmed interior, with black seats, a black steering wheel, and black center console. The black interior will also feature carbon-fiber accents.

    The first 1,500 Supras will feature an individually numbered carbon-fiber badge on the passenger-side dashboard complete with a graphic of Toyota Motor Corporation President and Master Driver Akio Toyoda’s signature.

    Different Grades, Same Power
    The 2020 Supra will be available in two grades: 3.0 and 3.0 Premium. Both will be powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine that produces 335 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque and is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with racing-style paddle shifters. Both grades will also come standard with serious performance features including adaptive suspension, an active rear differential and launch control.
    The 3.0 grade has a 6.5-inch display with Bluetooth and iPod capability, as well as Alcantara seats. Navigation and JBL Audio will be an available option for an additional $2,460.

    The 3.0 Premium grade will feature an upgraded 8.8-inch wide-format touchscreen display with Navigation, Supra Connect telematics services, wireless Apple CarPlay, a premium 12-speaker JBL audio system, wireless phone charging and a color Head-Up Display. The 3.0 Premium grade will also feature heated, leather-trimmed seats.

    The Supra Launch Edition will be based on the 3.0 Premium grade.

    Standard safety features on both grades, as well as the Launch Edition, include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, road sign assist and automatic high beams.

    The Driver Assist Package is an additional suite of safety features that will be optional on both grades for an additional $1,195. It includes full speed adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert, parking sonar and rear collision warning.

    Get the Very First One
    The first 2020 Supra off the production line will go to the highest bidder at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, Saturday, January 19.

    This one-of-a-kind Supra will be the very first new Supra available in the U.S. in more than 20 years. It will feature a Phantom Matte Gray exterior with the red mirror caps, red leather-trimmed interior, matte black wheels, and will carry VIN number 20201. The carbon-fiber badge on the passenger dash will be numbered 1 of 1,500 with a graphic of Akio Toyoda’s signature. The top bidder also will receive an engine cover with Akio Toyoda’s personal signature that can be framed or installed on the car.

    All proceeds of the sale will be shared by the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation. The Supra prototype on display at Barrett-Jackson will be representative of the actual production vehicle that will be delivered in the first half of 2019.

    NIce styling - not as overwrought as current Lexus and Toyota offerings, and it is lighter and more compact than I had expected. And it is less expensive than I thought it would be.

    It could be an interesting alternative for some Corvette buyers. Of course, the Grand Sport would likely be the far better track car - not to mention the Camaro SS LT1 and Mustang 500 GT PP2 - but I don't foresee a lot of crossover between the buyer for these track monsters and this more "refined" offering. Along with the BMW roadster version, it might also steal a few 718 buyers.

    It will be interesting to track future sales number vs. both the BMW roadster version and the 718.

      I want to like it and I’m fine with the styling but after reading about it, I just don’t care. It sounds like a another poser GT. I hope I’m wrong and it’s a real performer.

        FYI:

        Fairly comprehensive review:

        Factoid: The U.S. version, BMW roadster analogue has more grunt due to less emission mitigation.

                Terrible design, I don't understand the proportions and crazy shut lines, nor the 'melted slice of cheese' at all four corners.

                The BMW B58, closed deck design, but the air to water intercooler integrated into the intake manifold just seems like disaster waiting to happen, given the cooling system issues on their cars.

                I was hoping for better.

                  Subframes will tear off the car from normal street driving after 80K, cracks in chassis pockets for control arms... You know, "ultimate driving machine" stuff

                    I remember the emotions upon seeing a 3rd gen Supra TT for the first time. It was a spaceship from the future. Bold, ambitious, consistent application of the new design language of the time. Looked like nothing else. Forged aluminum control arms were exotic back then. IRS was also not common in high power FR platforms at that price point. Nor were 6 speeds. Real aero. I was blown away.

                    Sad to see Toyota squander an iconic brand on a loaner platform. There are certain sections and angles of the new car that are appealing but as a whole, stylistically, it does not work for me. And I just cringe at the mechanical underpinnings. This car will languish at the dealers. It's funny but it would have been safer to badge as Lexus but I'm sure the folks there wanted nothing to do with it.

                      I think I'd rather pay more to get the Lexus RC F.

                            I am so down on BMW's. BMW will ruin the Supra. There goes Japanese reliability with simplicity. Case in point 328i BMW makes you rub your belly pat your head walk backwards over hot coals to trigger the secret menu to see your coolant temp. The X3 will allow you to squirt your windows 3x when car is off then you have to start your car and turn off and in another 3x the washer will stop functioning. You have to start the car again and have engine running to drain out the old washer fluid in case you decide to add the -32F fluid because you decided to take the AWD X3 skiing. Do we really need a computer algorithm to run the windshield washer?
