    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.

    Exactly, and despite some of the negative talk, it's more than likely that they have nailed it.

    The supra will probably out sell the Z4 three to one. This is similar to the FRS vs BRZ.


    The Z4 is more expensive than the Supra. The supra is a hardtop, lighter, faster with less power, will get better MPG, and will be cheaper to insure. Toyota also has a much larger dealer network.

    I am wondering if Toyota made the calculation that in order to sell a bunch of Supras they should avoid building a car that competes on the same square as the Nissan GT-R for example, because that market is small.
    Instead, aim at a lower market which BMW sells a lot of cars into, and the thought was that their best way to compete with BMW on the same square is to... Sell a BMW..

    If there is that much bmw in there I cannot bring myself to buy it. I just put a radiator in 3 series. Their superior German engineering outsmarts itself to the point of failure and accessory failure points we just don’t need.

    It isn't a Toyota. it isn't 50% Toyota. from few of walk around reviews I've seen, it is not even 10% Toyota. nobody has yet to find a Toyota part on the car. Pretty sure there are a few Toyota part number, like oil dip stick, as BMW haven't made in in a decade?

    and this is how the Toyota "chief engineer" lied about all those 10 fake vents....and was immediately called out on the BS.

    Although Civic Type R owners would beg to differ.

    My complaint is it doesn't have back seats. That was one of the things that made the old supra different. You could buy the old supra make 500hp and and drive it for 200k miles with your kids in the back.

    I´ll go against the current on this one.
    - The BMW B58 engine has been mostly trouble free, and it´s an easy 400whp with just ECU reprogramming (DME is already cracked). Turbo and oil pump, among other smaller engine parts, are Supra-specific, I´m prety sure Toyota will not compromise on reliability, it´s their core strentgh. Head of develompent said "BMW couldn’t believe how extensive some of our quality and efficiency studies were as parts came into shape one by one. We would take every bit down to a fastener or rivet, and put it through our stringent quality control and a dozen other testing, we’d ship thousands of parts back to Japan for analysis. That is normal to us. Each piece we test at our level".
    - The ZF 8HP gearbox has proven smooth, fast and reliable.
    - Rear electronic differential from the M series works very well.
    - Handling was one of the top priorities during development, with Tada San at the helm (same guy who lead the GT86 design). 50:50 weight distribution, very low COG (lower than GT86), and very high torsional stiffness (higher than the LFA carbon fiber tube).

    It´s much more a sports car than previous Supras, which were more on the GT side. Price is very decent for the overall package.
    I think they will sell a lot, and aftermarket support will be awesome. Good job Toyota.

    Toyota didn't build this Supra. Couldn't say what the percentage of final car is theirs but it's certainly below 50%. Mazda, OTOH, singlehandedly built the current MX5. Nissan offers the GTR and 370Z, both unique platforms.

    While I always appreciate any mfr for bringing a new performance car to market, I can't always applaud the resulting product.
