The 2020 Toyota A90 Supra has leaked online.
And we’re not talking about just plain old stats (which we have plenty of already), but we’re talkin’ an honest to the gods of horsepower photograph.
The image was leaked on Supra fansite SupraMKV by user Supra93. What we see is definitely a 2020 Supra without all that Gazoo racing camouflage we’ve been forced to look at for so, so long. It looks like it’s stuck in a shipping container of some kind, with a grey tarp being pulled back for the camera.
It may have been a whole year since we first saw the early renders of the A90 Supra, but now we finally get to see a production version in the flesh.
It’s quite likely this will be the car that debuts in January at the Detroit Auto Show. The timing works out considering how long it takes for a car to cross the ocean and get through customs. We’re already stoked for the big reveal to come early next year, and this just makes us all the more excited.
What we know about the Supra can honestly fill an order guide--mostly because a ton of documents has already leaked on SupraMKV already. We know that a base-level version of the Supra will come with a 2.0-L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that makes 262 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Power will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and be fed to the rear wheels only.
A more powerful engine will be available shortly after the 2.0-L’s release, which will be a 3.0-L turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine with 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Zero to sixty is expected to be in the mid-4-second range.
We also know that the engine, transmission, and much of the working parts will all be from BMW and shared with their 2019 Z4 roadster. Toyota assures us that the Supra will be its own car, which will be evident from the unique body and interior styling, but it seems hard to believe that a car mostly made with BMW parts will have its own unique feel.
We’ll have to wait until January for more info on that. In the meantime, enjoy the pretty pictures.
