2020 Toyota Supra Looks Much Better On New Wheels, Lowered Suspension

Customer deliveries of the 2020 Toyota Supra only recently commenced in the U.S. and already, one example has been outfitted with a set of custom wheels and new suspension thanks to Titan Motorsports in Orlando, Florida.

Some have criticized the exterior styling of the all-new Supra in the months since its global unveiling, claiming that it doesn’t evoke its much-loved predecessor and lacks the supercar vibes of the original FT-1 Concept. However, we think most would agree that with these aftermarket wheels from Vossen, it is certainly eye-catching.

The addition of a vnew suspension from KW (likely custom springs or coilovers – details haven’t been disclosed) also reduce the sports car’s ride height and enhances its sporty look.

One of the key reasons why the Mk4-generation Supra generated such a cult following was how popular it proved to be in the aftermarket scene. For years, it was the go-to car for tuning companies looking to extract huge amounts of power from a standard engine block, as the famed 2JZ is known to handle at least 1,000 HP before turning into exotic solutions.

By comparison, the new Supra features a BMW-sourced, 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six, and while this engine doesn’t come from the Toyota stable, it is also popular throughout the tuning community.

Toyota is so eager to ensure the aftermarket world jumps behind the new Supra that it even developed specific parts to help companies easily extract more grunt from the sports car. At this year’s SEMA Show, we wouldn’t be surprised to see dozens of modified GR Supras on display, many of which are bound to have more comprehensive modifications than this particular example. So maybe, just maybe, we shouldn’t be too harsh on it after all.

    Desperate looking Supra.

    Lowering a pig and giving it new shoes doesn’t change the fact it’s still a pig

  • robotlogic

    Should read “the new Supra is a BMW-sourced Z4 with bodywork exclusive to the Supra version”.

  • TheBelltower

    Does it look better?

  • 85ZingoGTR

    It’s funny. So many people comparing this to the new Corvette. This thing is just a massive disappointment next to the Corvette.

    • TheBelltower

      That’s what makes the comparison so intriguing.

    • SnakePlant

      True, true. Just as much of a disappointment as the Corvette, too.

      • 85ZingoGTR

        Corvette disappointed you? I actually was quite pleasantly surprised by how nice it turned out. If only GM put that much attention to their other cars.

        • SnakePlant

          I very much like the 04 Vette styling, and I think the C7/Z07 went out with a bang, for sure. Not a mid-engine-body kind of guy. Love tacos and netflix, though. :-

          The new Corvette can’t pop a wheelie like the old ones and something about that makes me upset.

      • TheNovanglus

        Well, the market doesn’t agree with you. My dealers allocation was gone within 30hrs. I’d wager there are Supras sitting on lots.

        • SnakePlant

          I don’t disagree with you. The Vette is dirt cheap, the Supra is kind of like “oh, and it’s this much?”

    • Jason Miller

      Honestly like the looks of this over the C8. To each their own.

  • SnakePlant

    I love that design wheel that AMG has, but I also very much love the Supra sitting like that.

  • GobbleUp

    But how to fix the ugly body design?

  • Tabs Luther

    now you cant drive it anywhere. this thing is already passé

  • dumblikeyou2

    That looks thug. Pass.

  • Bo Hanan

    I think not.

  • Mr. Big

    Another fail for those whacky stylist at Toyota. Supras look like a cross between a catfish and dust buster.

  • WalthamDan

    I can finally say something good about the new Supra

    Nice wheels.

  • TheNovanglus

    No, no it doesn’t make that beluga whale look any better. It is hideous.

  • Six Thousand Times

    No, those wheels are just that bit too big and the tires too thin.

  • pcurve

    It DOES look better… from front. And front only.

  • SteersUright

    Its no beauty, then again the last Supra wasn’t either so they got the lineage right.
    Shame though, the FT1 concept was incredible. This looks like the Happy Meal toy version of that car.

    • D3X

      Maybe Toyota should have partnered with GM instead and built the Supra based on the C7 corvette with updated drivetrain and suspension. I bet it would have looked more like the FT1.

  • Jason Miller

    I laugh at all the negative comments about this car. None of the negative Nancy’s were going to buy one anyway…

    • ErnieB

      This car has a lot of negative Nancy’s.. not everyone will buy a C8 either, but most everyone praise it. My point is.. Toyota tried cutting corners by going the cheaper route and outsourcing the car. They also were blindfolded when drawing it up. This makes people upset.

      • Jason Miller

        But the car performs as it should. BMW or Toyota engine, with identical performance, does it really matter in the end?

        • TheBelltower

          Evidently

        • ErnieB

          Which would you rather have.. An unreliable bmw or a bullet proof Toyota sports car? I am playing devils advocate here. I think loyal Toyota Supra fans would think this to be a bait and switch scenario. No? Ask any die hard mustang fan what would they do if Ford decided to ask Mercedes for an AMG v8? It’s a matter of tradition and pride.

      • JorgeDeeeeeaz

        When the price was not disclosed “everyone” hated it for its design. Then GM said it’s gonna be cheap and suddenly the C8 is THE THING to have? The praise only comes from the “bang for the buck”.

  • Kwikcilva

    I almost feel sorry for the new Supra, the corvette is here and boy does it shame this thing pretending to be a sports car for the people.

  • ErnieB

    Ahhh.. they were fake to give after market companies work… I know.. it’s a lame excuse after all the new C8 has real functional scoops! Amazing eh?!?!

  • Teddy Wijaya

    still look fat.

  • Sjaak

    Maybe Toyota can learn from Corvette-GM how to built a fantastic car at a reasonable price.
    Maybe Toyota feels a bit scammed by BMW now.

    Maybe Toyota wakens up and design-develop-built a nexttime Supra fully by them themselves.

  • Arct1c

    I do like those wheels…but they’ll look better on like an M4 or RCF in my opinion.

  • Bash

    Actually, it does look better.

  • Emoto

    Still looks like @ss.

    • KidRed

      Exactly. Nope, doesn’t help. It’s still an ugly, over-designed mess.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Despite me thinking that the hate for this is overblown, especially with the BMW controversy, it would be hilarious to buy one and put a Dinan tune on it.

  • iddqd

    this new Supra is a prefect example of what we call in german as ‘Frittentheke’… which means as much as ‘stand for fries’…an endearing word for a massive rear spoiler…which this car is oh so missing…
    it looks like an unfinished concept without it, like the designers forgot the rear…dare i say hyena.
