TRD 2020 Toyota GR Supra Performance Line Concept Coming Next Friday

Hot on the heels of the unveiling of the 2020 GR Supra last month, Toyota will use the Osaka Auto Messe to introduce the new GR Supra Performance Line concept from TRD.

Set to debut on February 9th at 9:30 am local time, the GR Supra Performance Line concept promises to be a high-performance model that takes inspiration from previous Supra racing cars. The company is keeping details under wraps, but noted the original Supra was “born in order to win” and eventually retreated from the “front line of the fight.” The company goes on to say it’s time for a comeback.

That isn’t much to go on, but TRD released a teaser video which features the Supra 3000 GT as well as a number of Supra race cars that competed in the Japan GT Championship (JGTC). The automaker also released a sketch of the concept and it suggests the model will have a massive rear wing and a ventilated hood that draws inspiration from the Supra 3000 GT.

Toyota is keeping details under wraps, but the concept could preview an assortment of TRD components for the road-going model. There’s no word on specifics as of yet, but TRD offers an assortment of components for the Toyota 86. Key exterior highlights include an aggressive front spoiler, aerodynamic side skirts, and a new diffuser. Owners can also purchase a sports exhaust system, a rear spoiler and an assortment of fins.

On the performance front, 86 customers can buy a strut tower brace, beefier brakes and lightweight aluminum wheels. TRD also offers a draw stiffener, a limited slip differential and a handful of suspension packages with new springs and shocks.

It wouldn’t be surprising if the accessories for the Supra follow in the footsteps of those offered on the 86, but we should find out more next week.
