    It’s Supra Time: 2020 Supra Debuts in Detroit

    First Production Supra to be Auctioned in January

    October 30, 2018
    PLANO, Texas, October 30, 2018 -- Confirming one of the worst-kept secrets in the auto industry, Toyota announced it will premiere its oft-teased and much-anticipated 2020 Supra at January’s 2019 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

    But in fresh news, Toyota will be offering the first global production unit of the Toyota Supra through auction with all proceeds going to charity. This one-of-a-kind Supra will be delivered to the winning bidder when production starts in the first half of 2019.

    Production to start by June 2019

    Don't see anything that states production will start by June, says first half of 2019. It'll likely be available to purchase by June.

    There are two halves to a year, each are 6 months. June is the sixth month of a year within the first half. It's pretty easy to understand the article. Also it said nothing about purchasing in the first half just production will start.

    In contradiction the Toyota Japan news release says the Supra will "reach" worldwide markets in the first half of 2019 so some confusion there.

    "Toyota expects its new Supra to reach the worldwide markets during the first half of 2019."

    I'm looking forward to seeing it in nice glossy marketing pics with no camo. I still feel like its hard to judge its looks a little. This is actually a pretty significant pic, first shot of the production car with no camo.

    I guess the big reveal for the week is, its available in red!
