If there is a car that is included on nearly every list of “greatest enthusiasts car” it’s the Toyota Supra. The little two-door sports car was initially bolted together as a response to the Z cars coming from competitor Datsun, but it ultimately turned into a special maker with a cult-like following. Now after years of rumor, speculation and dreaming, it looks like the new Toyota Supra is all however authorities. With Toyota having actually released the FT-1 concept in 2014 and with stylish models spotted on the road considering that 2016, it appears the next-generation Supra isn’t far from becoming truth. With more information and reports coming out regularly about the next-gen Toyota Supra, it was just a matter of time before the very first models struck the streets. This finally taken place in September 2016, basically providing confirmation that the new Supra will show up in dealerships pretty soon.
The 2019 Toyota Supra features a relatively little footprint. It’s clearly smaller than 2014’s FT-1 idea car, which previewed the style. Aspects obtained from the idea include the extending nose, double-bubble roofing system, jet fighter-style glasshouse, muscular rear fenders, and ducktail trunk lid. We don’t expect the production car to be as racy as the FT-1 on the within. Toyota needs to concentrate on benefit and high-end in order to allow the Supra to take on the similarity the Acura NSX and provide leather upholstery, contrast stitching, and aluminum trim, at least on the more pricey models. These will most likely be integrated with sports seats and pedals, a bespoke instrument cluster with a performance-specific display screen, and Toyota’s most current technology and safety features.
The 2019 Toyota Supra is anticipated to be provided with more than one powertrain choice, with the range-topper rumored to be a hybrid powertrain combining a twin-turbocharged V-6 with an electric motor or more. The V-6 would power the rear wheels while the electrical motors power the front set, producing a “through-the-road” hybrid setup. Toyota previewed a comparable setup in 2013 with its Hybrid-R idea.
We’ve heard it will be priced greater than a Corvette, which starts in the mid-$ 50k bracket and quickly increases from there. The 2019 Toyota Supra isn’t anticipated on the market until well into 2018, which means we’ll likely see it arrive as a 2019 model. (It’s possible the launching will happen in late 2017 at the Tokyo auto show.).
