So far, 2019 has been a big year for Toyota, and they have a lot of reasons to celebrate too. The Supra has launched a little over three months ago, but they've already sold out their allocation in Japan just a few weeks after the order books were opened. This is according to Toyota dealers in their home market.

Toyota began accepting orders for the Supra last March 9, meaning it just took them 11 days to be fully booked. That being said, the global supply of Supras appears to be steady. But if demand is as strong in Japan in export markets, those interested in buying the sports coupe in other countries may have to wait quite a while. Nonetheless, the fully booked reservations indicate that the revived Supra has all the potential to be a sales success for the brand.

You may be curious as to which Supra variant has been ordered the most. For some, it may come as no surprise that it's the top-spec RZ that's received the most reservations, according to Japanese Toyota dealerships. That particular model is powered by a BMW-sourced 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine which makes 340 PS and 500 Nm of torque. In its home market, the Supra RZ retails for ¥ 6.9 million, or approximately Php 3.3 million.

That being said, other Supra variants can still be ordered (if you're based in Japan). The entry-level SZ and mid-spec SZ-R can still be reserved. Unlike the RZ however, these two variants do not get straight-six power, receiving boosted four-cylinder engines instead. The SZ makes 190 PS while the SZ-R puts out 252 PS.

With this much demand for the fifth-generation Supra, what are the odds of it coming to the Philippines? So far, Toyota Motors Philippines isn't mentioning anything about the sports coupe, nor have they dropped hints as to whether or not it will be sold locally. While the idea seems far fetched, for now, TMP could have a surprise in store for us soon. After all, they did just hold the global debut of the all-new Hiace here.

Sold out in its home market in Japan in just 11 days, particularly the 3.0-liter inline-6 engine, is amazing! Choosing the 6-cylinder engine is a no brainer. What more if they add a manual? Could be sold out in less than a week. If a manual is coming(with an inline-6).....better count me in.

For the record, my brother who isn't into sports cars saw the A90 Supra for the first time from Detroit pics.. He immediately said, "Dam! those things will sell like hotcakes!", price was right he said too. Looks like he may be right lol.

I am sure that the new Supra will be the beginning of a new reasonably priced sports car era.

In Trump words I'd say make sports cars great again...

All that hate against this car will turn into jealousy and envy in 2020 once the haters realize what a hell of a good car the Supra is.

With manual or without, count me in for 2022!

6,900,000 Japanese Yen equals 62,244.56 United States Dollar


Some keyboard warriors are going to have a fit hearing this news. :)))

I wonder how much the SZR will cost ?

Not so amazing if you keep in mind the incredibly low production allocations. All of Europe gets just 900 cars in year 1, Australia gets just 300. Not sure of the USA or Japan allocations, but the Japan one is unlikely to be more than 1,000 given the European ones. It is not hard to fill the order books when your yearly allocations are so small! The 86/BRZ is sold in greater numbers and yet that is often cited as an example of low/declining sportscar sales and a sales failure! LOL.
