Toyota GR Supra

  • Brand: Toyota
  • Body Type: Coupe
The J29/DB Toyota Supra, also known as the Toyota GR Supra, is the fifth generation of the Supra, a sports car produced by Toyota since 2019. The GR Supra was sold under and developed by Toyota’s Gazoo Racing GR brand, in collaboration with BMW, and replaces the A80 Supra, which stopped production in 2002.

The GR Supra rides on a new jointly-developed sports car platform by Toyota and BMW, with a short wheelbase, wide track, and low center of gravity, that also underpins the G29 BMW Z4. Initially, BMW considered using a pre-existing platform of their own to underpin the new Supra, to which chief engineer Tada-san declined. Both cars are also manufactured at the Magna Steyr plant in Graz, Austria.

The fifth-generation Supra uses BMW model code conventions, designated as a J29 series with DB model codes. However, Toyota used the A90 and A91 code for promotional and marketing materials for the fifth generation Supra to maintain continuity from previous Supra generations.

Motor Trend had reported that a possible Supra successor could be based on the FT-HS Future Toyota-Hybrid Sport,[15] which debuted at the 2007 North American International Auto Show. The publication also reported that the fifth generation of the Supra could be powered by a 3.5-litre V-6 hybrid system generating over 298 kW 400 hp; 405 PS. Toyota quoted that it was not rushing for the Supra successor but instead was waiting to see how the sales and interests of the GT86/FR-S went.

In 2010, Toyota applied for a trademark for the Supra name. The trademark had to be used within three years for it to be valid. In December 2011, Autoguide reported a possible Supra replacement that would sit above the GT86. Tetsuya Tada, the chief engineer of the Toyota 86/Scion FR-S told reporters in Germany in 2012 the president Akio Toyoda has asked me to make a successor to the Supra as soon as possible.
