Almost 16 years after the death of Toyota Supra company has now decided to revive the legendary car brand once again with the launch of Supra 2019. The Japanese carmaker has teased an image of the upcoming sports car, suggesting that a launch is imminent. And since Supra was one of the most iconic things in the world of performance cars, it’s no surprise to see a lot of euphoria around this launch. So it makes sense to take a look at the expected features, engine, price and other details of 2019 Toyota Supra, which is what we’re going to do in this article. Let’s begin:
2019 Toyota Supra Name
Since Supra will be a sports car, it will come as a product of Gazoo sub-brand. This was confirmed by Gazoo boss Koei Saga last year in January to Autocar. So the full name of this Supra may look something like this:
- Toyota Supra Gazoo, or;
- Toyota Gazoo Supra.
Gazoo, in case you don’t know already, is a sub-brand of Toyota devoted solely to performance cars.
Engine and Transmission System
2019 Toyota Supra is expected to be powered by the same powertrain that powers BMW Z4: a six-cylinder 3-liter engine that can deliver the power of 340bhp. This engine is likely to be combined with an eight-speed torque converter gearbox whose shift paddles will be mounted on steering wheels.
2019 Toyota Supra Features
The 2019 Toyota Supra is rumored to borrow a lot from BMW Z4. It has been heard that it will be based on the same carbon fiber architecture that’s used in Z4, i3, i8 and 7 series. A number of other features seen in BMW Z4 are also expected to make their way to this Toyota Supra, which include a dashboard-mounted infotainment screen with rotary dial controller on central tunnel, heating control buttons similar to those seen in BMWs and even an automatic gear lever similar to one seen in BMW cars.
2019 Toyota Supra Expected Price
2019 Toyota Supra is expected to sit above GT86 in the entire Toyota lineup, which will also make it company’s flagship product. And being a flagship it’s also almost confirmed that it will cost more than GT86. So I feel that it’s certainly gonna cost more than £30,000 and $40,000.
2019 Toyota Supra Release Date
Now when this car has been teased, it’s almost certain to be launched at Geneva International Motor Show next month, the post which it may be released in major car markets. So we’re probably gonna see it release in April or May. Rest will be clear when it’s launched officially.
