Its world premiere can be witnessed various car enthusiasts at the annual 2019 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) located in Detroit from these following dates, January 14-27.
It is said that this 5th generation Toyota Supra model is highly-anticipated. Toyota wasted no efforts of producing teasers for the promotion of the upcoming model. To satisfy the show-goers’ appetite for the mystery that Toyota Corporation has embedded, they brought a camouflage-design of Supra's prototype to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The audience was given a chance to witness as to how the model would perform and what could it offer.
The 5th generation Toyota Supra 2019 model is highly-anticipated
In the month of October, the said-Supra raced in VLN Endurance Championship Nurburgring, Race 9 in the efforts of seeing the vehicle's development activities. A lot of questions were raised as to what Supra will possess under its hood, or whether it will be produced with a model with a manual transmission.
If the model would be developed following another company’s (BMW) model Z4’s powertrain, options of a four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines would be available. In the current market, Z4 offers a 20i, 30i and best performing 40i option that produces a 390 PS and 500Nm of torque. With that in mind, Toyota will have to develop and improve the engine for the upcoming Supra to produce a more powerful performance.
According to the latest car news, the Toyota Supra 2019/2020 is said to be globally distributed at the first half of 2019. It is not clear yet as to whether Toyota Motor Philippines would bring in the highly-anticipated sports car in the country as well.
