Toyota To Restart Production Of Mk3 And Mk4 Supra Parts

Toyota has revealed that it will put numerous third-generation and fourth-generation Supra parts back into production.

Gazoo Racing company president Shigeki Tomoyama announced the move at a recent event held in Japan to celebrate the launch of the latest-generation Supra. It has yet to be revealed which parts will be put back into production.

“We can not answer about specific parts at this time, but we will make every effort to meet the expectations of owners,” Tomoyama said.

The initiative is dubbed the ‘GR Heritage Parts Project’ and is similar to a program launched last year by Nissan. On the back of demand from customers, Nissan restarted production on numerous parts for the R33 and R34-generation Skyline GT-Rs in 2018 and in 2017, started building new parts for the R32-generation GT-R.

Elsewhere in the industry, Mazda has started offering new parts for the first-generation Miata and Honda has long offered a parts program for the original NSX sports car.

The announcement of factory support for the third- and fourth-generation Supras comes just a few months after the 2020 model debuted.

The fifth-generation Supra is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine sourced from BMW with 335 hp and 365 lb-ft (494 Nm) of torque. Mated to this engine is a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission sending power to the rear wheels, allowing the car to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.1 seconds. Toyota also sells the 2020 Supra in Japan with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine but it remains to be seen if this engine will be offered elsewhere.

    Great idea, SMART move.

    Could they restart production of all the parts and maybe offer to assemble them too? That would be neat.

    “Toyota To Restart Production Of Mk3 And Mk4 Supra…

    *Gasps In Excitement!

    …Parts”

    *…awhhhh‘… _(TwT)_/

    I’m not really sure why I read it as such (shown above). Although, even with a slight amount of misplaced excitement due to an improper reading of the title, It is great news though to hear that the production of parts for these vehicle will restart once again. I am sure Mk3 & Mk4 owners will be quite happy. Good Thinking Toyota, Good Thinking. 👍

    With values on the rise, it does make sense. Stock versions with low miles are starting to sell for a pretty penny.
