As one of the biggest, if not the actual biggest, automaker on the planet, Toyota is no stranger to setting the bar for the rest of the automotive industry. However, if there is one deficiency in the Toyota roster, it’s something that is just dripping with tire-melting performance and curve-carving handling. The 2020 Toyota Supra in Milford, CT will certainly change that. After more than 20 years of shuttered production, the Supra name is back and the unique badge will be worn on the highest-performing sports coupe the brand has made available in the United States. If there is a distinctly European flavor to the 2020 Toyota Supra, that’s probably because a lot of its testing and development happened across the pond. It was tested in the winding road of the Alps as well as on the grueling Nürburgring race track.
Toyota engineers and designers who worked on the 2020 Supra looked as much to the past as they did to the future for the new sports coupe. Sharp-eyed Colonial Toyota customers may notice the double-bubble roof design, pioneered by the Toyota 2000 GT, with the new Supra. Additionally, the all-new Supra shares more than a passing resemblance to the FT-1 concept car that was produced by the automaker’s research arm in California. When the 2020 Supra arrives in our showroom later this year, the driver and passenger will wrap themselves in racing-inspired seats while still having access to useable cockpit meant for every day driving. Several convenience features will be standard equipment in the 2020 Toyota Supra, including Keyless Smart Entry, dual automatic climate controls and a rear camera.
The 2020 Toyota Supra looks like it’s going 100 miles per hour when it’s standing still. Toyota needed a special power plant to deliver that kind of performance when it’s actually in motion. Under the long hood is a turbocharged, 3.0-liter, inline six-cylinder engine that will be attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Owners of the 2020 Toyota Supra will get to use 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque from the twin-scroll turbocharged engine. Toyota estimates say that it will be able to accelerate from zero-to-60 mph in 4.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 155 mph. Engineers have also included Launch Control.
