Here it is – the 2020 Toyota Supra has been revealed before its official unveiling in Detroit.
Toyota Germany’s at it again, this time fully showing the 2020 Toyota Supra in the sheet metal. We first caught wind that the car would reveal itself from Toyota’s German arm back in October. Now, a SupraMkV forum user received an e-mail with full-on, unclad photos of the new Supra when they signed up for more updates (Update: Not anymore). So, now it’s official. Through teaser after teaser and leak after leak, we know what the production model will almost certainly look like.
Mind you, we’ve had a pretty good idea what the 2020 Toyota Supra would look like for awhile now. However, this is the most complete picture we’ve had so for of the production model we’ll all be able to buy soon. As before, it seems the 2020 Toyota Supra, co-developed with BMW, will ship with two engines. You can get either a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit, or a 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six engine. As with the previous generation of the JDM icon, the new Supra will be front-engined with rear-wheel drive.
These photos do look eerily similar (at least with the background) to the Gazoo Racing concept. Let’s also take notice of the “GR” license plate on teh front. These images may well just be renderings, but from the leaks we have seen, this is likely what the final version will look like.
What about power figures?
Since Toyota hasn’t gone ahead and revealed the new Supra yet, we can still only speculate as to how much power it’s going to produce. However, BMW has already released its side of the sports car joint venture by way of the new Z4. The two cars will likely share engines (and power numbers, by extension), so once again we can infer from there.
The BMW Z4’s 2.0-liter engine, in the sDrive30i, produces 255 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The more powerful, six-cylinder M40i, on the other hand, makes 382 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. It’s likely the 2020 Toyota Supra will put out similar numbers, although we can’t say how Toyota may tweak its engine from its BMW counterpart.

Update: It seems Toyota Germany recognized the error, as you only get a camouflaged photo if you sign up now.
