Toyota Supra: More Power Than Advertised?

Not everyone was enthusiastic about Toyota’s decision to co-develop its Supra with BMW.

We wouldn’t go that far (though certain telltale signs of BMW’s hand come off as slightly off-putting). Still, an interior that borrows heavily […] The post Toyota Supra: More Power Than Advertised? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Toyota Supra: The Best Toyota Sports Car?

The 2020 Toyota Supra is the first Supra in the United States in 21 years.  Toyota GAZOO Racing applied their vision when engineering the new Supra.  Expect the Supra in July with a fairly reasonable MSRP considering the performance.  Much has been said about the fifth-gen, 2020 Toyota Supra. We all know how the Supra is a rehashed version of the new BMW Z4, but that’s not exactly right.
