The Toyota Supra. If you remembered and idolised the fourth generation model thanks to Brian O'Conner's (RIP Paul Walker) fondness of the car in The Fast & The Furious series, then I can relate. In fact, the model was discontinued back in 2002, and newer iterations of the Supra series was never seen ever since. Until now.
After years of showcasing several concepts of what could have been the new Supra, Toyota is finally ready to reveal the latest generation of the Supra at the upcoming Detroid Auto Show in the US. Set to be released in 2020, eager fans and journalists have been trying to snap glimpses of the car to get an idea of what it looks like.
Fortunately (for us, at least), Toyota Mexico had accidentally leaked a promotional video of the 2020 Toyota Supra on Twitter but was taken down soon after, but not before enthusiasts managed to grab and upload it to Youtube and Facebook. The video (above) gave us a good look at the exterior of the new Supra and its features with detailed shots from various angles and distances.
It has been confirmed that the 2020 Toyota Supra and the upcoming BMW Z4 are sharing the same platforms and mechanical parts despite its visual differences. Therefore also confirming that the Supra is powered by BMW's 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six engine. There are also rumours that it will also include a hybrid version and four-cylinder turbo as well.
Almost two decades later since the last one. It's been a long time without you, Toyota Supra.
