It’s Official: New Toyota Supra Coming To Geneva Motor Show

After years of waiting and countless reports, the new Supra will debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, as confirmed by Toyota.

The Japanese carmaker even dropped a teaser image which shows a detail from the curvy bodywork of the car, along with part of a giant fixed rear wing.

That last bit also means that Geneva’s show car will most likely not be the final production model but rather a thinly disguised “design study”, with Toyota following the same strategy with BMW and its Z4 Concept.

Unless you were living under a rock the past few years, you should know that Toyota has teamed up with BMW for the development of the new Supra and Z4 models, with the two cars sharing the same underpinnings.

Other reports talk about the new Supra being offered under the Gazoo Racing banner and not with Toyota badges in a bid to establish their new performance sub-brand. Toyota plans to offer a range of Supra models, with one version to be powered by a BMW-sourced six-cylinder unit with around 335hp.

The new Toyota Supra will allegedly be offered in as many as four different versions, so it’ll be interesting to see which one will sit on the top of the range. Let’s hope that most, if not all of our questions will be answered when Toyota pulls the wraps off the new Supra on March 6.

    DO NOT DISSAPOINT!

    • Dr Strangefinger

      I’m hoping for the best, prepared for much less…

    • ErnieB

      Keeping everything I have that can be crossed .. crossed..

  • gor134

    About time. I feel like it will be hugely overstyled, though, and slightly overpriced. Hoping for the best. And please don’t be called Gazoo. This name will most likely not sell in the U.S. as we have not had any form of introduction for it.

    • Dr Strangefinger

      Wasn’t there something called Gazoo on the Flintstones? Like a green little space man thing? If I’m correct, even more of a reason to avoid that name.

    • LWOAP

      Well, considering Gazoo is Toyota’s performance sub-brand, it’s most likely going to be named after them. After all, Toyota hasn’t been making performance cars in a while .

      • Kyle Newberry

        US Toyota Reps already pushed for TRD instead since it’s far more familiar here and does well with the trucks.

      • Vanishing Boy

        I would bet it will be called:

        Toyota GR Coupe, not Toyota Supra

  • exeptor

    Fingers crossed. Just hope the Gazoo speculation won’t get true. Gazoo Supra sounds pretty stockish and unnatural in a way.

    • Six Thousand Times

      Gazoo will likely be JDM only.

  • Nordschleife

    These cars have been in existence FOREVER. We don’t need another thinly veiled concept, just show the damn car.

  • LWOAP

    Firstly, as far as I know, it’s not going to be the Toyota Supra it’s most likely going to be the GRMN Supra or Gazoo Racing Supra – which sounds really dumb IMO. Secondly, it better not be a colossal disappointment.

  • ediotsavant

    Dumb move by Toyota.

    • Eythan Aldrich

      dumb move? don’t forget you didn’t mentioned bmw yet

      • ediotsavant

        Yes dumb. Toyota was already developing the GA-L platform for it’s rear wheel drive cars and they could have used it. They got the engines, the V6 from the Camry and the twin turbo V6 from the Lexus LS. If cost was the issue, this BMW Supra will not be much cheaper.

        • Eythan Aldrich

          well I blame bmw for that…..in the first place

  • Honda NSX-R

    Pretty sure that it won’t be called the Gazoo or GRMN Supra in the USA. And it looks like Toyota is gonna call it the Supra…fuck.

    • LWOAP

      Is it coming to the states?

      • roy

        Good question

      • Honda NSX-R

        There are spy shots/videos of the Supra testing in the USA, so yes it will come to the states as a Toyota/TRD.

        • LWOAP

          I’m not so sure. TRD only sells parts whereas Gazoo is in charge of the actual performance cars. If it does come stateside, I don’t see it being badged as a Toyota/TRD.

          • Honda NSX-R

            I doubt that Toyota USA will let it be called a Gazoo though, American customers probably won’t be accustomed to a performance car named after some character on the Flintstones.

          • LWOAP

            It’s not that big a deal to be honest simply because not every knows who Gazoo is. And they could easily call it the Gazoo Racing or GRMN Supra. Based upon what Toyota did with the Celica, I don’t see them caring too much about their heritage. Either way, I really don’t see this thing being badged as a Toyota. It wouldn’t make sense when they are establishing a sub brand and then call it something different.

          • Honda NSX-R

            Here’s the thing though. If this isn’t being badged as a Toyota, then why is Toyota on Twitter teasing this rather than the Gazoo Racing/GR division 🤔? And the Gazoo Racing Super Sport concept that was revealed last month still had a Toyota badge on it so the new Supra will definitely be badged as a Toyota. Gazoo Racing is like the AMG of Toyota https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c7db856e2a7bb8c532746ce4b4d2c5978c676d39008db66c10d0af65593969e9.jpg

          • LWOAP

            Well, I do know one thing, when it gets unveiled in March there won’t be any question about what name it will be sold as.

      • Autoexperte

        Yes

    • enthusia

      i was really hoping they’d call it the celica or something new entirely, but signs point to it being called supra.
      but i still have a ounce of hope that they won’t 🤞

      • Honda NSX-R

        Same here, it’s not like I’m not excited for this car, it’s that I’d rather see this car bear another nameplate than “Supra”. This car shouldn’t be named “Supra” and try to regain the interest of Supra fans (which are likely to be very picky of the car), but rather start a new fan following/legacy.

  • DM

    Not sure if designers take notes from renders but there are a couple out there that really make you wish they did. We all have high hopes for this car.

  • KaitlinS

    Is it coming to the states?

    • LWOAP

  • Jason Miller

    If you actually read the announcement from Toyota, it has a big rear wing because it’s a “modern racing concept”. The car pictured is most likely something they plan on running in some form of motorport series.

  • Ken Lyns

    Plot twist: BMW 8-speed slushbox will be the only option

    • Honda NSX-R

      I would expect a plot twist to be a manual transmission to be an option honestly.

    • ediotsavant

      They all be automatics.

  • Six Thousand Times

    That’s a helluva wing.

  • km2000

    FYI Some magazines in Japan said it will be GTE racecar.

  • Vanishing Boy

    I’m not getting my hopes up, it will be just another concept car tease AND not a production version. I will be surprised if it is.

    Plus I won’t think it will be called ‘Toyota Supra’ simply because it’s 90% BMW. I would think it will be called ‘Toyota GR Coupe.’

    Toyota lately sucks at naming their production-spec sports cars. The Toyota 86 (which was 96% Subaru)!? It should be called ‘Celica’ instead of 86/GT86/FR-S mess.

  • Six_Tymes
  • ..and we wait, this better be good.. better yet Great!

  • Tumbi Mtika

    I am going to lower my expectations.

    I don’t want to get hurt.

  • seriously

    its really a let down this has a BMW engine, its pretty much just a Z4 Coupe. The whole appeal of the new Supra to me was the fact it would be a “reliable” high performance vehicle from Toyota like the original Supra. Im not one that regards the original Supra as a legacy each generation honestly was way to heavy and with the exception of the last generation it was really more of a grand touring luxury coupe and only the turbo was fast the base model was painfully slow. Just was hoping for something truely exciting from Toyota. Using a BMW engine and other parts makes it a no go for me as good as BMWs are for performance they arent reliable. Toyota should have used the engine from the Lexus LS……

  • adam berry

    If we learned anything from the FRS/GT-86 this car will be down on power. BMW will work on the handling and chassis design so it will handle well Im sure. The engine will disappoint true fans but it will surly please the type of customer that would want this over whats currently available. Heres what i think the engine will be, I have not researched what it will have so excuse me if Im uninformed. NON TURBO!!!! Hybrid power!!! taking the 3.5-litre V6 from the Camry and adding some electric motor, output will be 425 hp with about 450 ft of torque. Still good numbers but this will disapoint any true Supra enthusiast,. just my 2 cents…

    • Vassilis

      I reckon it’ll have a 2.0 litre turbo with 350 hp or so. Maybe it will be hybrid though.

  • ramish rambarran

    All well and good for the re-introduction of the Supra. The worse thing in this whole business is using why would Toyota think that a BMW motor is better than theirs ?
