On the one hand, the company has announced the specification of this vehicle. However, many details related to this vehicle are still unknown.
Previously introduced Toyota FT-1 Concept (2014), it served as an announcement for the Serial Supra model. It was then known that Toyota was planning to produce a new sports coupe. Also, it was known that Toyota is working on a joint project with the BMW company. As a product of this collaboration, the new generation of BMW Z4 roadster models, as well as the Toyota Supra 2019, arrive. What was not entirely clear is what the new Toyota coupe will take. The dilemmas are resolved. The old Toyota Supra model has inherited a new model with the same name.
Finally, it remains to be seen how it will look like the production model. There is more and more information in this field. Namely, the test vehicle samples can be noticed with an ever-smaller amount of camouflage on itself. Also, it’s almost certain what will be under the hood of the new Toyota Supra, as well as the transmission that the vehicle will use.
Basically, the 2019 Supra will be a very agile and lightweight model. According to people from the company, the car will have less weight than competitive models, coming from Porsche and Alpine, as well as other companies. In addition to the smaller weight, the new supra will be extremely fast, manageable and at the end funny sports coupe.
Under the hood will be two 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbo engines. There is another version that mentions a 3.0-liter drive unit. There are two possibilities here. Or you will find a Lexus V6 Twin Turbo engine, or a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder turbocharged turbo engine from the BMW Z4. This version, with BMW’s engine, will deliver about 350 horsepower. Along with all this, it is mentioned and offered a hybrid version of the new model. However, this version will be offered sometime later.
Various opinions about the choice of gearboxes for the new model appeared. Namely, 2019 Toyota Supra will offer only automatic transmission. On the other hand, the new BMW Z4 will also offer a manual gearbox. Some of the enthusiasts in this type of car were very critical of this decision of the company. Namely, traditionalists believe that such a model should receive a manual gearbox. However, none of that, at least for now.
2019 Toyota Supra Design
The two aforementioned models, the Toyota Supra 2019 and the new BMW Z4 will share the same platform. However, each of these manufacturers will give their own designer styling to their model. Although there are still a lot of camouflage on test specimens, which were spotted at the Nürburgring, some details can be seen.
