Features and equipment are unchanged for the new model year, but the all-important power numbers have been given a handy boost.

  • 2021 Toyota GR Supra gets 35kW power boost
  • Prices have increased by $2590 over outgoing 2020 model
Right on time, the upgraded 2021 Toyota GR Supra has arrived in Australia, bringing more power and a toughened chassis.
You'll pay for the privilege, however, with a $2590 price increase over the outgoing 2020 model-year $84,536 GT and $94,536 GTS.
For 2021, the Supra GT will be priced from $87,126 and the Supra GTS from $97,126 – both before on-road costs.

That spend will get you a 35kW power upgrade to a new 285kW (matching its BMW Z4 platform mate), while torque remains unchanged at 500Nm.
The retuned, BMW-sourced 3.0-litre straight-six turbo engine also benefits from a lower 10.2:1 compression ratio, down from 11:1.
Maximum power is available between 5800-6500rpm, while peak torque now has a broader range of 1800 to 5000rpm – although the entry point there is up from 1600rpm (while the previous exit was 4500rpm).

As before, power is sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

All of this gifts the Supra with a 0-100km time sharpened by 0.2 seconds to just 4.1 seconds, but combined-cycle fuel consumption is officially unchanged at 7.7L/100km.
These power improvements are joined by a pair of new strut braces under the bonnet, installed to reduce chassis flex in cornering.
Styling and specifications for the 2021 Toyota GR Supra is otherwise unchanged from those announced in 2019, which you can read in full here.

Faster 2021 Toyota Supra arrives

Upgraded GR Supra gets more power, stiffer body to keep Nissan 400Z honest

Toyota has taken the wraps off the faster and more potent 2021 Toyota GR Supra – but you’d be hard-pressed to pick the difference without opening the bonnet.
The key performance upgrade for Toyota’s flagship two-seater sports car is an engine tweak that boosts power from 250kW to 285kW and quickens acceleration.
It also now has a pair of strut braces under the bonnet which, according to Toyota, is designed to “prevent the chassis flexing during cornering”.
A stiffer suspension tune is part of the upgrade but Supra fans will note the only external visual change is the application of a Supra logo to the red front brake callipers on the GTS model.

Will anyone notice the Supra brake stickers?
There are price increases of $2590 for the upgraded 2021 Toyota GR Supra, with the GT and GTS variants pegged at $87,126 and $97,126 respectively, both not including on-road costs.

The power boost to the Supra’s BMW-built (B58) 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine puts it on par with its cousin, the BMW Z4 M40i, with 285kW produced between 5800rpm and 6500rpm.
Engine recalibrations include a lower 10.2:1 compression ratio, and although peak torque of 500Nm is unchanged, it’s generated across a wider rev range: 1800rpm to 5000rpm.

More power and pace for the 2021 GR Supra
This sees the 0-100km/h acceleration time hasten by two tenths of a second in conjunction with launch control, taking 4.1sec to accelerate to 100km/h from standstill.
The extra power should give the Toyota Supra enough firepower to fend off a significant challenge from the upcoming twin-turbocharged V6-powered Nissan 400Z, which is set to launch in 2021.
It’s understood Toyota will make subtle performance changes to the Supra annually to keep interest in the sports car bubbling along – and to keep its rivals honest.
Minor changes to the suspension setup, which is now understood to be stiffer, is designed to improve handling dynamics, however, the cabin is untouched. That means Apple CarPlay or Android Auto are not offered.
It’s understood Toyota Australia is studying ways to add these features in future.

No changes to the BMW-esque cabin
Toyota is also set to reveal its next Gazoo Racing performance vehicle in the form of the Toyota GR Corolla hot hatch, which will target the US market first, given the Toyota GR Yaris is not offered there.
Following the local launch of the GR Yaris, which like the Supra sold out of initial stock very quickly – albeit at a 20 per cent discounted price – the Australian arm of the Japanese car-maker says the GR high-performance sub-brand will continue to grow its range of track-ready vehicles.
“Toyota Gazoo Racing and our GR brand portfolio of cars is all about pushing the limits and, where we can, we will deliver every ounce of performance potential,” said Sean Hanley, Toyota Australia’s sales and marketing vice-president.

More power requires more stiffness, insists Toyota
“This upgrade for GR Supra will continue our quest to deliver ever-better cars, with more power and under-bonnet bracing that will further enhance the thrilling driving experience offered by this iconic car,” he added.
The second-generation Toyota 86 will also get a power hike and carry the GR 86 moniker when it arrives here in late 2021 or early 2022, packing a bigger 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine worth 170kW.
A top-flight Toyota GRMN Supra is also believed to be in the works, powered by the same S58 twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder powerplant as the BMW M3, which will be good for around 375kW and 600Nm.
Unlike the regular Supra’s conventional eight-speed automatic transmission, the Supra GRMN is tipped to get a dual-clutch auto. Pricing for that model could go as high as $160,000.
The beefed-up 2021 Toyota GR Supra comes in seven colours, including Suzuka Silver, Bathurst Black, Monza Red, Silverstone Yellow, Fuji White, Goodwood Grey and Nurburg Matte Grey, the latter for GTS only and in limited quantities.


How much does the 2021 Toyota GR Supra cost?
GT – $87,126
GTS – $97,126


Options
Nurburg Matte Grey paint – $2500
Alcantara upholstery – $2500
*Prices exclude on-road costs

Will the new Nissan 400Z out-muscle the 285kW Supra?

Has anyone bought an A91 personally in Australia yet? I spoke our local toyota dealer who basically had no clue when they'd get any (unsurprising) but was wondering if the current situation has halted or slowed delivery to the Australian market?

Apparently Toyota was only selling 10 a month, but with 300 sold in the first batch they might be stretching those numbers.

I personally find the lack of knowledge from Toyota dealers here in Oz to be lacking when it comes to any info on the Supra...For example, I was assured the Apple Carplay would be available before my MY20 purchase.

The A91 is mainly a USA only option, although there are a couple or three here

The 2021 is selling here, but at $99K its a fair chunk of change

They probably aren't much more knowledgeable about the GR Yaris to be fair....

Ahhh OK - i figured they just incremented the number to represent 2021 models - so anyone know if we have a specific allocation or if many 2021 models made it to our shores?
