Get Ready For An Onslaught Of 2020 Toyota Supra Tunes At SEMA

As we’re preparing our first review of the 2020 Toyota Supra (coming later this week), we stumbled on a video from Kelley Blue Book taking an up-close look at the vehicle being presented to the aftermarket community. If you weren’t already excited about seeing the Supra soon hit the market, you should be.

The SEMA Garage in California currently has a handful of new Supras in its workshop and in the months leading up to the Las Vegas SEMA Show later this year, tuning companies are starting to tweak and modify the car. As Kelley Blue Book notes, it was the aftermarket world which helped propel the previous-generation Supra to greatness and the future success of the Mk5 model could come down to how popular it proves to be among tuning circles.

Powering the U.S.-spec 2020 Supra is a BMW-sourced 3.0-liter inline-six turbocharged engine with 335 hp and 365 lb-ft (494 Nm) of torque. This allows for a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) time of roughly 4.1 seconds. However, the Supra is not a car designed exclusively for straight-line speed as it promises to really come alive when driven on track and through mountain roads.

Helping to ensure the Supra handles like a dream are the car’s 50-50 weight distribution and short wheelbase. Compared to Toyota’s other current sports car, the 86, the wheelbase of the Supra is actually 4-inches shorter and this alone promises to make the car exceptionally fun to drive.

Many enthusiasts have been quite receptive of the new car but common complaints we’ve come across include the lack of a manual transmission. While Toyota hasn’t opened its cards yet on the possibility of offering a manual option later on, the video below from KBB strongly hints at the presence of at least one tune with a stick shift at SEMA.

    PLEASE tell me it ain’t so. I’m so over this thing already (C8 Vette is coming VERY close). Guess I’ll have to avoid the Internet during SEMA this year. I’m not a big fan of it anyway…
