The 2021 Toyota Supra is Here!

April 28th, 2021 by

Icons aren’t made overnight. The 2021 GR Supra carries forth a legacy that goes back 40 years, and it’s a legacy we don’t take lightly. It was imperative to take the time to make it not only something that honors its heritage, but also, just like its predecessors, becomes its generation’s leading definition of performance. Supra is the sports car we’ve been dreaming about for a long…long time, and its creation was a true labor of love.

Only a year after the Supra was reintroduced, Toyota is turning up the heat on the car’s turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six, dialing up its horsepower from 335 to 382. To help the Supra broaden its reach, the company is also adding a four-cylinder model to the lineup, which is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 that makes 255 horsepower. The range-topping A91 special edition comes standard with the six-cylinder engine and adds a host of appearance items to the interior and exterior to differentiate it from regular Supra models. Last year’s standard 6.5-inch infotainment screen is gone; the larger 8.8-inch display is now standard across the lineup.

All Supra models come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and are offered only with rear-wheel drive. At the test track, our long-term 2020 Supra 3.0 laid down some seriously impressive acceleration numbers: zero to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and zero to 100 mph in 9.5. That puts it in the big leagues against the Chevy Camaro, the Porsche Cayman GTS, and the BMW M2 Competition. In fact, it’s even quicker than the vaunted fourth-generation Supra that was powered by a sequentially-turbocharged inline-six with 320 horsepower.
