    ...and there were virtually no 2JZ-powered racecars - at least not at an elite/professional level. The 3SG-derived four banger was eventually replaced with a 3UZ-based variant :p

    Not a bit. The trade-off on 2.0 isn't an issue. The 2021 3.0 difference is primarily 50 horses and a couple of struts. I'm pretty sure the new pricing will make this all moot.

    Do you know if it was a good seller? Personally, I haven't seen that many blue Supras.

    We are definitely in the minority besides phantom. My guess is that blue just isn’t a good seller. This is my second Toyota sports car and my first one was an ultramarine FRS which also was very uncommon to see. One weird fact I’ve noticed is that for some reason (Atleast with Toyota) the blue is always the “cheaper” option. My FRS was Atleast 1-2k cheaper than the charcoal gray I wanted and my Supra I got for MSRP.

    Yesterday Toyota held a briefing revealing the details about the upcoming 2021 model and sharing the plans.

    In particular, Toyota and BMW will continue their collaboration, but go the separate ways over time. The Japanese maker remains to be responsible for the tuning and chassis setup on the Supra.

    A team of Toyota engineers have stayed at the headquarters in Munich to work with BMW’s technicians side-by-side.

    Of course, all wonder when the new Toyota Supra arrives. As for the timeline, the car is predictably delayed because of the coronavirus.

    As the Magna Steyr in Austria is still closed, production of a cheaper four-cylinder Toyota Supra hasn’t started yet. So, the delivery time will depend on when the plant resumes its work. The automaker says the first cars will reach the U.S. dealerships no earlier than this fall.

    Fortunately, Toyota managed to release 400 six-cylinder Supras of the 2021 model year before the plant closure, and these cars are on their way to America right now. They go on sale in June 2020.

    The Toyota Supra sports coupe is a halo car for the brand, which is more important for image, and was not put sales objectives on.

    Its market launch took place on July 22, 2019. Last year the U.S. sales totaled just 2,884 units, with the average transaction price of $56,000-$57,000.

    I haven't even seen one in real life. Only colors I have feast my eyes on are yellow, red, white, and black.
