Toyota Promises This Is The Last 2020 Supra Teaser, But Not Really

The 2020 Toyota Supra may have been prematurely revealed by the company’s German subsidiary but apparently, that didn’t change the teasing schedule.

Toyota has released a new teaser photo that shows the rear end of the car and, more importantly, announces the date and time we’ll finally get to see the all-new Supra officially revealed.

The much-anticipated world debut will happen at the Detroit Auto Show on Monday, January 14 at 9:40 a.m. EST and will be streamed online at this link — as well as at the bottom of this page in the embedded video.

Toyota accompanies this information with a cheeky text that says “We promise, this is the last teaser*.” The asterisk then leads you to another line that says “subject to change.” Chances are we’ll see more Supra teasers in the coming days, even though little more than a weekend separates us from the launch event.

Can you believe it’s been five years since the Japanese automaker has unveiled the superb FT-1 Concept at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show? Since then, we learned that Toyota and BMW would co-develop the new Supra and Z4, with Toyota showing us the GR Supra Racing Concept last year to sweeten the wait for the fifth-gen Supra A90.

Toyota has been very secretive about technical specifications, but Supra chief engineer Tetsuya Tada has already confirmed the car would be powered by a BMW-sourced straight-six engine. Since the new Supra is twinned with the new BMW Z4, that engine is likely the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder unit from the Z4 M40i.

In that car, the power plant produces 382 hp (387 PS) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. Mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, it enables the roadster to sprint from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in just 4.4 seconds.
