However, it’s good to know that there is some controversy surrounding the 2020 Toyota Supra. The Supra is no new kid on the block since it has been around since the 1970s and those models were based on the Toyota Celica. When the 1980s rolled in, the Supra got the opportunity to become its own model. Then in 1993, Toyota launched the Mark 4 Supra, which was made famous in the Fast and the Furious (for all you movie buffs out there). 

Anybody who was old enough to drive in the 1990s, probably still remembers how desirable the Supra was. However, after 1998 the Supra just vanished because Toyota put it out of production. Nevertheless, the legend has remained alive and only increased in growth. Due to this overwhelming popularity, Toyota was pressurized to bring back this mythological machine, a car icon some might claim it to be, back into the automobile world!


The thing is, the previous generation of Supras had a robust 2jz six-cylinder engine and loads of tuning potential. It is one of the most famous Japanese sports cars, but the new 2020 Supra isn’t built in Japan with its classic engine. Instead, it is built in Austria, with a famous German car manufacturer's engine! Underneath the hood, the Supra Launch Edition features a three-liter inline 6 cylinder turbocharged engine. The engine produces 335 horsepower and 356 pound-feet of torque. Also, the engine is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission which transmits the power to the rear wheels via an active rear differential. 

In the past, the Supra’s main objective was to be a fast vehicle, but the Supras of today are not only fast, but they are also agile too.
