The embargo on driving impressions of the 2020 Toyota Supra has expired, and now, enthusiasts are devouring a slew of takes on the highly anticipated sports car.
Before it got into the hands of journalists, there was plenty of skepticism about the next generation of Toyota’s legendary giant killer, largely because it was produced in partnership with BMW, and based on the architecture and drivetrain of the German company’s current Z4.
But in an era when consumers are gravitating toward crossovers and SUVs, partnerships to produce sports cars are becoming increasingly common. Toyota already teamed up with Subaru to build the 86, and FIAT engineers used the chassis of the Mazda MX-5 as the base for its 124 Spider.
That said, we’ve checked out plenty of takes on the new machine, and they’re overwhelmingly positive. Motor Authority, said it “corners at the limit with incredibly agility,” Jalopnik described it as “very, very quick,” and Motor Trend said it “reinvents the concept [of the Supra] in a guise that make sense for today’s world.” If you’ve been thinking about putting a new Supra in your garage, they’re all worth a read.
It’s also worth watching this through walk-through of the new Supra from Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained. We’ve always appreciated his stuff, because Fenske is always able to break down complicated automotive technology and jargon in ways that makes it enjoyable for everyone, regardless of whether you’re a seasoned gearhead, or have never picked up a wrench in your life.
