Toyota’s all-new Supra has skipped the chance to make its comeback at the Tokyo Motor Show. The amazing car appears to like Nurburgring more from auto shows because we managed to catch the camouflaged model once again while it was checking out its capabilities. But don’t you worry about the official debut, the 2019 Toyota Supra will appear when nobody expects, meaning it might come to the 2017 Los Angeles auto show this December.
As for the newest prototype, well we have to say that it doesn’t provide anything new at all. It features production LED headlights with additional LED strip, which will work as daytime lightning. The sports car appears to uses production taillights as well which are really attractive by the way. The roadster has a unique roof without any doubt. This double-bubble design is something we’ve never seen before, which is something we can’t say very often these days.
Still, that’s going to be pretty much everything unique from the 2019 Supra. That’s because the amazing coupe shares plenty of details with BMW’s sibling. They will ride on the same platform, but we are not so sure about the engine. The latest reports, the 2019 Toyota Supra will rely on a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline, which will be able to pump out more than 400 horsepower. Of course, the mighty mill will send all power to rear wheels only, most likely via an eight-speed auto transmission. Although, some reports claim that Toyota won’t skip the chance to offer a manual gearbox as well. We hold our fingers crossed for the option. Speaking of possibilities and probabilities, we can skip the chance to mention that the Japanese manufacturer is reconsidering a hybrid option as well. Even though it’s highly possible, the electrified model will probably come a year after.
The iconic sports car from Toyota will not be some cheap toy for sure. No, the legendary roadster will probably cost at least $40,000.
