2019 Toyota Supra has been described a lot in past few years, especially in past few months, but according to all we know, we had reasons to wait for this car so long. New Supra is not only a sporty new generation car but also has many novelties to offer. Becoming a part of famous BMW group it is slightly changed now, but only in those parts that improve its speed and driving performances.
As engineers from Toyota said, 2019 Toyota Supra is a slightly redesigned car, mostly to become closer to BMW cars, which is a new cooperator of the Toyota. That means that new Supra follows the design of GT86, but only in details, becoming something like redesigned Subaru, but with new unique details. It could get a new suspension similar to BMW models, but with the unique design of Supra.
When it comes to the engine in 2019 Toyota Supra, one is for sure – it will not be Lexus V8 anymore. Bearing in mind that Toyota is a part of BMW now, it is expected that they will make some kind of cooperation so the new engine would be closer to BMW’s sports versions. It is still not for sure if it will be classic six-cylinder engine neither. As some information we heard last year from headquarter of European factory claim that it will be a combination of BMW model and a sporty engine, there are high chances that it could be M3’s twin-turbo with 450 horsepower. It could include the same system engine placed in front of the car in combination with the rear-wheel driving system as on past models. There are rumors about a hybrid engine, which Toyota’s main engineer and Supra project Chief Tetsuya Tada did not confirm clearly. He said that they are considering that option and knowing that they already made Le Man hybrid race cars successfully, we have a lot of reasons to expect that.
2019 Toyota Supra
Even though we called 2019 Toyota Supra as 2019 model, it is expected that this model will be revealed in January 2019 at Detroit Car Show. However, it is a brand new sports car on the market which will have a lot of reasons to be called as another sporty race car model from Toyota. As they said, it will be a part of special GRMN (Gazoo Racing Masters of the Nurburgring) models, which is obviously a future of Toyota cars. First on the list that has joined to these famous sporty cars is Yaris GRMN and now it is the next step for Toyota Supra.
