2019 Toyota Supra Specs, Price, and Release Date. Though Toyota scrapped the project back in 2002 and people thought that the Supra was going to be gone forever. Back in 2007 Toyota released the FT-HS concept which was going to be a successor for the Supra. 2019 Toyota Supra is coming, but it won’t be too similar to the previous installment, and it won’t be entirely a Toyota.
The 4th generation of the Supra is one of the best-known cars ever made and for a good reason. The Supra has been discontinued more than 15 years ago and so far Toyota didn’t say much about a successor. The car is expected to be released with the upcoming 2019 Toyota Supra.
2019 TOYOTA SUPRA – IN DETAIL
For starters, the upcoming 2019 Toyota Supra is not going to use a Toyota-developed platform. This has been rumored ever since 2013, and it has been confirmed only recently after a Supra test mule has been seen at BMW’s testing facility at the Nurburgring. In this price bracket Toyota will have to compete with the Boxster, BMW’s Z5 as well as with American-made and european sports cars.
2019 TOYOTA SUPRA – Exterior
Even though Toyota kept quiet about their new Supra, the car has been spied testing numerous times so far.
It seems its design might be quite polarizing even though the car hasn’t been fully unveiled.
In the front, the new 2019 Toyota Supra seems to be mostly based on the 4th generation having roughly the same headlights and long hood.
The bumper, as well as the car’s intakes, seem to be identical to those of the FT-1 concept.
2019 TOYOTA SUPRA – INTERIOR
The spied prototype of the upcoming 2019 Toyota Supra featured a very interesting interior.
The car boasted roughly the same setup as BMW’s current lineup of cars.
It had the same iDrive infotainment system, the swivel-control wheel and even the same steering wheel as the upcoming Z4
Some suggested the production Supra will be different but we doubt much will change.
2019 TOYOTA SUPRA – DESIGN
There is still nothing official about the 2019 Toyota Supra. The early concepts such as the ft-1 or the ft-hs might give us a glimpse of the car’s appearance. The unfortunate part is that Toyota did say a while ago that they will not pursue the look of the highly aggressive FT-1.
While the end design might not be as good as we hoped, we are sure that Toyota will give the new Supra a unique identity which will make it stand out from a crowd. It also seems that the coupe is not going to be the only version.
2019 TOYOTA SUPRA – UNDER THE HOOD
At first, there have been quite a few rumors about the 2019 Toyota Supra going for an inline six engine borrowed from BMW. Instead, it seems that the new Supra will receive a Lexus developed V6 with the 943F code. This is less than what the first rumors suggested but more than enough to make the Supra fast enough to pose a problem for its rivals.
2019 TOYOTA SUPRA – Competition
In the category of sports cars, there has always been strong competition. The new Supra is expected late next year, and the only worthy rivals are Acura NSX and Porsche 911 Turbo.
Acura NSX $156,000.
Porsche 911 Turbo $159,000.
Toyota Supra N/A.
2019 TOYOTA SUPRA – Release date and Price
Its price hasn’t been revealed but it looks like the new Supra will be quite a bit more expensive than some suggested.
1993 Toyota Supra $33,900.
1995 Toyota Supra Turbo $47,500.
1995 Toyota Supra $37,600.
1997 Toyota Supra Turbo $39,800.
1998 Toyota Supra $31,100.
1998 Toyota Supra Turbo $40,100.
The base models are expected at roughly $45,000 to $50,000 with the range-topping cars going for far more than that. Release date is probably late 2018, but has not yet been confirmed.
