2020 Toyota Supra




Sorry, but I cannot seem to be able to get excited about this "all new" Toyota Supra.
I think many in the press were begging for an all-new Supra for years.
And Toyota made one. But I am not sure that many people will actually buy one (including the ones who were begging for it in the first place)

There is also nothing surprising about the new Toyota Supra since this is a production, toned down version of the FT-1 Concept from 5 years ago.
So this isn't striking in any way.

And, like many commented here previously, this Supra will not have Toyota's legendary reliability, since it is basically a BMW in Toyota clothing.
(I bet an older last generation model in good shape would actually be more reliable.)


This will probably not be offered with the 2.0 Liter Turbo available in the new Z4. But only the more expensive 6 cylinder Turbo.
So, not cheap...

I don't even understand why they partnered with BMW on this. They could've just as easily used the Lexus RC as the basis for the Supra.

Another Toyota sports car that comes in late, overcomplicated, overpriced and ultimately underwhelming.

The concept had visual flair, looked like it was moving forward when stationary. But this is clunky and boring, not the aspirational sports car it should have been.

Another 2 seater with low demand. Unlike 20 years ago, the car world is awash with great designs even at the SUV level. 2 door sports coupes have become irrelevant. I would take the A5 sportback to this all day long.

The size is close to the Toyota FR-86 and Subaru BRZ. It is small! It no the size of a Mustang or Camaro!

OMG. I am in odd. It looks so small! Like a small person with a disproportionately huge head. That rolled up trunklid makes me sick. That's such an stale design that NO ONE finds it cool anymore.

It looks clunky and droopy. A rare double fail!

The design is a total mess. All of the hype was for nothing.

The real reason why this will be a dud is the engine. The BMW engine won't hold a candle to the bulletproof 2JZ of the last Supra..
