Recent news from Toyota is that the new 2021 Supra will have more power and a second engine. The 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six 335 horsepower gets a bump up to 382 horsepower with 368 lb-ft. of torque. The extra power comes from a redesigned exhaust system and new piston design that increases compression ratio. What this means is that the 2021 Toyota Supra will sprint from 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds.
New 2.0-Liter 255HP Engine Option
More good news for Supra fans is Toyota offering a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine as an option for the car. This turbo four-banger will crank out 255 horsepower, and put down 295 lb-ft of torque. Available with an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission and 18-inch wheels. The 2021 model will arrive in dealerships as early as next month. Word of a limited production run of A91 Edition Supras will be on the hunt for blank checks, probably doomed to a life of a collectable.
Where Do You Stand on the New-Gen Supra?
The internet is still debating on the new-gen 2020 Toyota Supra. A split down the middle, sitting at the 50-yard line, on the Toyota Supra’s German infused DNA from the BMW Z4. Is it an engineering blessing or JDM blasphemy? Regardless, even diehard haters wouldn’t dare pass up the chance to drive a shiny new Supra. The first 2020 Supra sold back in June 2019 (in the US), and less than 3,000 Supras have been purchased since. Not a lot, but this is a 50k sports car. Not exactly a bargain for the car’s target audience – us.
With more power and a second engine, will this be enough for car-social media to quit arguing about this overhyped sports car? No, but that is part of our insane community. A place where sentimental value and nostalgia can bring up to seven figures at an auction. A sh*t-box from 1983 is desirable and considered cool. It’s a community made up by people who often see practically is an afterthought. You know – car people.
