Hey, the car is getting a power bump AND a 4 cylinder (for America).


If you waited to get a Supra, it was a smart move. The 2021 model has lots of upgrades.
In addition to adding a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder to the American lineup, the 2021 Toyota Supra has some other big changes to tempt more buyers into the brand's halo car. The largest overhaul is that the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six now makes 382 horsepower (285 kilowatts) and 368 pound-feet (499 Newton-meters, rather than the existing 335 hp (250 kW) and 365 lb-ft (495 Nm). This brings the Supra's output in line with the BMW Z4 M40i, which uses the same engine.

Toyota estimates that the higher-output engine gets the 2021 Supra to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 3.9 seconds, rather than 4.1 seconds previously. An eight-speed automatic is still the only gearbox option.

Oh and a new special edition.

If the 2021 Supra's updates aren't enough for you, then Toyota is also introducing the A91 special edition (above) that is limited to 1,000 units. It's available in Nocturnal black or Refraction blue, and the latter color is exclusive to this model. The body also gets carbon fiber parts for the mirror caps and rear lip spoiler. A black stripe runs diagonally along the C-pillar and rear fender on each side. The A91 rides on black wheels. Inside, the seats get Alcantara panels and blue stitching. As a final touch, the A91 comes with two key gloves and a trunk mat.

It seems the current power measured is well over the advertised 335hp rating. So will they actually make 47+ more horsepower or did they just correct the power rating on paper?

I was definitely considering one, maybe if both the gas tank and cargo capacity volumes were a little larger, for doing road trips. Worse though, was cruising with windows down above 40-45mph the wind buffeting was so bad I thought my eardrums were going to burst. It was a real disappointment. I like that blue though.

I was amazed when I read a lot of people complaining about that. You would think that would have been noticed and fixed in development. I know some other cars have fixed it with little winglets on the leading edge of the door window opening or mirrors. As much as people complain about how bad it is, it couldn't have been an oversight in development.

Gets a power bump and how much dealers still trying to get for ADM? I havnt seen a single one under sticker.

You know the 20s might go under sticker but I doubt the 21s will. The dealerships will be like but but butttt the 2021s got more power and itll still have ADM.

Id be shocked to find a 21 under sticker this summer.

Then again I hope the economy gets crushed because im looking for a house and a toy car myself.

House in ND just sold this week freed up some funds BIGLY! :ROFLMAO:

I'm really on the fence with this. If it had a larger fuel tank and rear storage I'd be buying one. But it's not giving any solid advantage over my current car. That 10.5 cu ft trunk space is abysmally small. Plus, I want that blue, which is special edition. Unless they offer it for 2022 or something.

Looked at Camaros yesturday I was shocked LT1 trim level has the wayyyyyy better looking V6 bumper with V8 and A10. All black not many options 32k MSRP im 100% positive it could be had for under 30k. I didnt know those could be had with the V6 bumper those look way better. Under 30k for a 20 LT1 A10 car is dirt cheap.

Way better than the SS bumper.

I want to drive one of these. Ive seen a few Cam stock heads bolt on ones making just under 600whp too.

Best of all lighter than a mustang or challenger and actually about same as the Supra ~3300

When I sat in the Supra at the autoshow I was impressed with the feel of the car. That blue is sick. I don't think I would ever actually buy one but I like the idea of the car.

I hate to encourage the 6th gen posting but that shock LT1 is super intriguing at around 30k.....
