PostHeaderIcon A Second Dyno Test of the 2020 Toyota Supra Sets the Record Straight… or Does It?

Ever since Car and Driver strapped the Toyota Supra to a dyno late last month, there’s been a lot of hand-wringing on how much power actually comes out of the sports car’s 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six-cylinder engine. C&D discovered that the Supra’s engine might actually produce more power than Toyota advertised. A few weeks later, Motor Trend did the same thing and arrived at the same theory. As advertised, Toyota says that the Supra’s turbocharged inline-six cylinder engine can produce 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque at the crank. But as the results of these two independent tests showed, it seems like Toyota’s newest crown jewel is more powerful than we thought. Or is it? Either way, it’s hard to argue with the fact that since it debuted earlier this year, the Supra is still what everyone wants to talk about.

PostHeaderIcon Someone Put the 2020 Toyota Supra on a Dyno and Toyota Lied Big Time

Imagine for a moment that Toyota lied to us. Imagine that Toyota was required by BMW to keep the advertised performance figures of the Supra below a certain level. After all, the BMW Z4 delivers 382 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque and its Toyota equivalent couldn’t come close to that now, could it? Well, what if Toyota said “screw BMW” and secretly did right by its enthusiasts? Toyota Rated the Supra at 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque – at the crank. That means that by the time that power gets to the wheels, it’s been reduced by as much as 25 percent due to slippage and transitional losses in the transmission, driveshaft, and rear axle. So, at the wheels, the Toyota should lay down around 270-ish horsepower and around 300 pound-feet. Oddly, enough, the Supra is capable of more. A hell of a lot more!

PostHeaderIcon Gazoo Racing is Breathing New Life into the MkIII and MkIV Toyota Supra in a Porsche-Approved Style

The all-new MkV Toyota Supra is all everyone is talking about these days. But soon enough, two of its predecessors, the MkIII and MkIV Supras, will grab slices of the headlines now that Toyota’s Gazoo Racing has announced plans to start up production of original parts for both models, as part of the GR Heritage Parts Project. The specifics on when, where, and what parts will be available will be announced at a later date, though if you own a MkIII or MkIV Supra, you’re not waiting for the information to arrive before you start celebrating. The important thing is your precious Supras can once again see the light of day with all original parts in tow.

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Toyota Supra – That BMW Engine is Really Crammed In There

Much has been said about Toyota and BMW’s relationship during their time developing the Supra and Z4 Roadster, respectively. Most people continue to lament the German automaker’s heavy involvement in the Japanese sports coupé’s development, though the truth, as is often the case, lies somewhere between what people think and what actually transpired. It’s true that BMW was heavily involved in certain aspects of the Supra’s development, including supplying a handful of important parts, including the one you’ll find when you pop open the Supra’s hood. Lift it up and you’ll see the sports car’s beating heart: a 3.0-liter, turbocharged, inline-six engine that looks like it was crammed in that space with very little room for anything else. It’s easy to look at this setup and see Bimmer’s fingerprints all over the Supra’s development, but the Supra is still more than just a Z4 Roadster wearing a different body and sporting a Toyota badge on it.

PostHeaderIcon As Easter Eggs Go, the Toyota Supra Has One That Pays Tribute to the Nurburgring

Five months after its debut at the 2019 North American International Auto Show, the Toyota Supra remains a news driver. It’s not entirely surprising given the hype surrounding the car, and while that hype gave birth to divisive reactions about the coupé itself, the Supra is still a trending topic, even when it comes to curious easter eggs about the Supra’s stylized font. Yes, we’re talking about a hidden tribute that Toyota put in the sports coupe’s name badge, paying homage to a specific section of the Nurburgring. Most of us didn’t notice or even realize it, but now that it’s out there, it’s hard to un-see. Production of the Toyota Supra is ongoing as we wait in earnest for the production model, beginning with the Launch Edition SE that will arrive this summer.

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Toyota Supra first drive review roundup

Toyota recently organized an official launch event for its all-new 2020 Supra that it held on and around the Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia. It was many journalists’ first look at the car, but there was an embargo on their first impressions at first, and it has since lifted. As such, reviews have started to pour in.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Supra – Driven

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.

PostHeaderIcon Driving the 2020 Toyota Supra On the Track and the Street

There’s no shortage of hype and controversy when it comes to the 2020 Toyota Supra. The return of this iconic nameplate has divided enthusiasts and sparked a firestorm of opinions, with some heralding its return, and others deriding its Bavarian influences. But putting all that aside, the most important question remains unanswered – what’s it like to drive? To answer that, Toyota flew me out to Virginia, where I was given the opportunity to see what the A90 Supra can do on the track, and how it handles the street. This is what happened.

PostHeaderIcon This Is Why You Should Stop Calling the 2020 Toyota Supra a “Rebadged BMW”

Like death and taxes, Internet comments asserting that the 2020 Toyota Supra isn’t a “real” Toyota seem inevitable. On the surface, the accusation seems justified. After all, the Supra and 2019 BMW Z4 share the same platform, engine, and transmission. Hell, even the switchgear is similar. So where exactly does the BMW end and the Toyota begin?

Well, according to Chief Engineer Tetsuya Tada, Toyota’s influence can be found from the ground up. I recently got a chance to climb behind the wheel of the 2020 Toyota Supra during a ride-and-drive event in Virginia, and Tada-san was in attendance to help answer our questions, providing clarification on the nature of Toyota’s partnership with BMW during the A90 Supra’s development.

PostHeaderIcon There’s a Good Reason Why Toyota Teamed up With BMW to Build the 2020 Supra

Toyota’s decision to team up with BMW in the development of the Supra was never a popular decision. It wasn’t back when it was announced in 2012, and it still isn’t seven years later with the Supra’s imminent production launch. But Toyota had its reasons, or, more specifically, Tetsuya Tada, the car’s chief engineer, and Toyota’s performance boss, had his reasons. It wasn’t so much about the convenience of working with BMW as it was realizing his vision for the Supra. This is, after all, the same man who was supposed to develop the successor of the MkIV Supra back in the ’90s before those plans were scrapped. But Tada eventually got his chance, and he wasn’t about to throw it away, even if it meant looking elsewhere — hello, BMW — for help in building the sports car he waited almost two decades to bring to life.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Toyota Supra Has a Hatchback Trunk With An Open Pass-Through to the Front

The 2020 Toyota Supra was designed with one very clear goal in mind – fun behind the wheel. However, given the Supra is still a road car that folks will likely drive on the street with, you know, stuff in it, it’s worth checking out what it offers in terms of practicality. Luckily, the Supra does indeed come with a hatchback cargo area that can fit stuff inside it.

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Toyota Supra vs 2014 Toyota FT-1 Concept

.split538022

The arrival of the Toyota Supra earlier this year marked the culmination of year’s worth of development from Toyota. Most people forget this now, but word of the Supra’s revival goes all the way back to 2007 when Toyota unveiled the FT-HS Concept at the 2007 North American International Auto Show. That never materialized, but it also didn’t stop the speculation surrounding the Supra’s fate, especially when Toyota filed a trademark for the “Supra” name back in 2010. Then, in 2014, Toyota debuted the FT-1 Concept at the same show as the FT-HS Concept seven years before. For all intents and purposes, the FT-1’s arrival kick-started the development of the new Supra. Toyota and BMW worked together on the development of the sports car alongside the latter’s Z4 Roadster. It took some time, but after five years, the world finally saw the production Supra at this year’s NAIAs. As expected, a lot of what made the new Supra what it is today can be tied back to the FT-1 Concept from five years ago. How much, exactly? Let’s find out.

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Toyota Supra Interior First Impressions

.split669810

After years of waiting, endless teasers, and more than a few false flags, the fifth-generation A90 Supra is finally here. Carrying the torch as Toyota’s modernized performance icon and halo vehicle, the 2020 Supra has plenty to live up to. And while most of you are chomping at the bit to learn what it’s like to drive, you’ll have to wait until the embargo lifts on Sunday for my full driven review. Until then, I want to relay everything I can about this machine, including my first impression of the interior.

PostHeaderIcon Maybe The 2020 Toyota Supra Isn’t Compatible With the Nurburgring After All

Toyota may want to hold off on building its own version of the Nurburgring in Japan because it appears that the Supra doesn’t agree with the actual Nurburgring. The Japanese automaker’s new prized sports car crashed at the ‘Ring in a testing session that occurred during Industry Pool. The crash occurred at the
Nordschleife’s Exmühle section, and available photos show that it was significant enough to cause the Supra’s bumper to get torn off completely. Details are limited on how the crash actually occurred, though considering where it occurred, the driver may have misjudged the racing line through this area, leading to a bit of understeer that ultimately led to the driver losing control of the sports car. Either way, the crashed Supra looks like it’s in need of a lot of repairs.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Toyota Supra’s Styling Is Growing On Me

When Toyota released the new fifth-generationA90 Supra at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, I wasn’t terribly impressed by its styling, saying that it looked like a “dumbed-down, bastardized version” of the FT-1 concept upon which it was based. And I still think that’s true – the FT-1 is an amazing piece of design, and the production A90 Supra can’t live up to the standard it sets. However, after spending some one-on-one time with the A90 in Virginia (courtesy of Toyota), I’m starting to come around.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Toyota Supra Is Surprisingly Small In Person

.split669809

I just got back from Middleburg, Virginia, where Toyota provided me with a 2020 Supra to flog around a racetrack. You’ll have to come back Sunday for my full in-depth driving impressions and review, but until then, there’s still a few things to say about the brand’s latest performance machine. For starters, the new Supra is surprisingly small in person.

PostHeaderIcon Here’s Why Toyota Won’t Bring the Four-Cylinder 2020 Supra to the United States?

Toyota’s decision to offer the Supra with a turbo six-cylinder engine in the U.S. has been met with mixed reactions. Most of the people who have voiced concern over the U.S.-spec Supra’s lack of engine diversity now have a new gripe on their hands after it was revealed that the California Air Resource Board has given its approval for the four-cylinder Supra to be sold in the U.S. market. Where is exactly is the gripe coming from? It turns out, even with the CARB approval, Toyota’s not changing its mind. The four-cylinder Supra is still not headed to the U.S. market, even if the option to bring it is already on the table. The automaker didn’t specify its reasons for keeping the four-cylinder Supra away from the eager beavers in the U.S., but if you think about it, that decision could have something to do with the company’s other sports car on the market: the Toyota 86.

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Toyota Supra Vs. 2019 BMW Z4

.split809459

Few sports cars can rustle the ‘ole jimmies quite like the 2020 Supra and 2019 BMW Z4. Built as a collaborative effort between the two automaker giants, each is a rebirth of a long-lost nameplate, sliding into a market where sports cars are on the decline. However, despite efforts to meet the demands of an enthusiast-driven public, many decry the Supra and Z4 as nothing more than badge-engineered twins designed to leverage fond memories. But the question remains – how do these two machines stack up against one another?

PostHeaderIcon Video: Is the 2020 Toyota Supra Really Just a Rebadged BMW?

When Toyota reintroduced the Supra nameplate at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, the public reaction was mixed. While some applauded the return of the iconic Japanese sports car, others derided it as nothing more than a rebadged BMW Z4. And while there’s some truth to that sentiment, the reality is much more complicated, as explored in this well-researched video from YouTube user Albon.

PostHeaderIcon Watch the First 2JZ-Swapped 2020 Toyota Supra Tear Ass Just a Week Before It Burst Into Flames

When Toyota revealed the new fifth-generation Supra at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, fans had mixed reactions. While some were ecstatic for the return of the nameplate after two decades on the shelf, others felt that the BMW-sourced six-cylinder engine was a disservice to such a legendary performer. Of course, the logical next step was obvious – swap in the venerable 2JZ engine! And that’s exactly what Japanese pro drifter Daigo Saito did, as documented in this two-minute video.
