Debuting at the 2019 Osaka Auto Messe.
Toyota may have just unveiled the Mk5 Supra to the world, but they’re wasting no time in showing just how much more extreme the car can be. To that end, the company will be presenting a TRD concept based on the GR Supra (to give it its full name), which they’ve dubbed ‘Performance Line.’
It’s said that the Performance Line concept is inspired by previous special editions by TRD, and will likely serve to preview optional kit that the company will introduce in the near future. A sole sketch teaser has been released and from what we can see, there’s a big wing on the back. No other details were given out in the press release.
The Mk5 Toyota GR Supra debuted to much fanfare at the Detroit Auto show, where despite the steady stream of teasers (and even steadier stream of leaks), the A90 Supra managed to wow the crowds. It is presently available globally with a 3.0-litre inline-6 developed by BMW, producing 250kW and 500Nm. In Japan, the Supra is also available with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol in either 190kW/400Nm or 145kW/320Nm guises. All cars get an 8-speed automatic as standard though.
Toyota AU has thus far not clarified if the 4-pot Supras are coming to Australia, so it’s safe to assume that we’re getting the full-fat 3.0-litre, replete with the mechanical locking rear diff & adaptive suspension, two components that are optional elsewhere. The A90 Supra is expected to land late this year, with an initial allocation of 300 cars.
