2020 Toyota Supra Release Date Canada – After years of waiting, the new Supra is here: Toyota showed the SUPRA 2020 in the Detroit Auto Show earlier this month, and not a moment too soon. Here, we have compiled everything we know about the car, from interviews with several people behind the Supra MkV and our unit of a pre-production prototype last year.

We are Also curious to see how the MkV compares with its legendary predecessor, the Turbo MkIV. Our First review of a SUPRA-Turbo March 1993 helps us see how they are over 25 years of progress.
Or not. When compared to the specifications of the MkIV Supra Turbo and the MkV on paper, they are surprisingly similar. The new car is a little lighter and shorter, but a little bit taller and wider. The MkV only has 15 horsepower plus and 50 lb-ft more torque than the Turbo MkIV, although it has shaved almost a second of the time from 0 to 60 mph. The maximum speeds in both are electronically limited.
The fact that there is so little improvement in paper is not necessarily a bad thing. In its day, the MkIV was a supercar, with a spec sheet that inspired folklore; Today, the MkV is just a half-way sports car. But The driving experience is more important than the numbers in the world of sports cars, so here are some excerpts from each review.
On the paper, the right parts and the correct size, but what happens on the track? Independently of 0.98 g around the skidpad, 66.0 mph through the slalom and stop distances of 60 mph in the order of 120 feet. Like the acceleration of the Supra Turbo, its driving and braking skills are almost the best we have seen, regardless of cost. “
2020 Supra Pre-production prototype:
“It’S a legitimate task to drive. I Spent an afternoon trying the car, including a handful of laps in the Jarama race Circuit and an hour or so on the winding mountain roads of rural Spain. It Was enough for me to want more.
In Jarama’s hairpins, that short wheelbase makes the Supra more than happy to rotate. You Feel that the thing twists a bit when braking, especially at the end of the line where you flirt at 140 mph. Rolling in the exclusive Michelin Pilot Super Sports compound (255 s at the front, 275 in the rear, with 19-inch improved rims) and optional adaptive cushions, the closed-coupled auto feels playful and appealing, never to the Light.
It Also feels decidedly without turbo. The final calibration is Still underway, despite sharing your engine with the Z4, the SUPRA will have a unique transmission schedule, but I have been told that this single-turbo engine reaches a little over seven psi of impulse. Torque is activated early and never actually falls; “Unlike some turbo power plants, this engine rewards a race to its 6500 rpm red line, and unless it is demanding a full impulse at 50 mph in the maximum gear, it will never reach the turbo sleeping at work “.
The first sold for crazy money
Shortly after his debut in Supra, # 001 went to the auction at Barrett-Jackson, where he ordered $2.1 million. Profits were donated to charities, but it is still a lot of money to pay for a car that otherwise costs less than $60.000. Something like that makes you forget those $121.000 MkIV Supra Turbo, does it?
