At long last, the wait for the 2020 Toyota Supra may soon be over.
We’ve known for awhile now that Toyota is working on launching a new Supra. We’ve seen it as a racing concept, we saw it at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but no production model has materialized. Now, it seems the wait may soon be coming to a close. The 2020 Toyota Supra – also known as the A90 – will appear in its finished form at the Detroit Auto Show.
This Facebook video posted to Toyota Germany’s Facebook page showed reservations for the 2020 Toyota Supra open today. One of the comments on that video, shared by the folks over at SupraMkV forums, revealed the car will be unveiled in January. Specifically, we’ll be able to see it in the sheet metal at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
According to the German Toyota site, the new Supra will have over 300 horsepower from a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine. It will also have a 50:50 weight distribution and hit 0-60 in under 5 seconds. That all sounds right, based on information we’ve gathered thus far.
The 2020 Toyota Supra has something of a sibling in the new BMW Z4. Both companies co-developed the new architecture, and the Z4 is making its public debut at the 2018 Paris Auto Show. We’ll have to wait and see how well-received the revival of one of Toyota’s most fabled sports cars goes down in January.
