2020 Toyota Supra gets 'Fast & Furious'-worthy body kit for SEMA

  2020 Toyota Supra gets 'Fast & Furious'-worthy body kit for SEMA 2020 Toyota Supra gets 'Fast & Furious'-worthy body kit for SEMADeveloped jointly with DuSpeed, the kit makes the Supra lower, wider, and meaner. It adds a sizable, speed-bump-eating splitter to the front bumper, side skirts, and a huge wing out back. Smaller door mirrors, and BBS alloy wheels add a finishing touch to the look. You might like it, or you might hate it, but one thing is for sure: It's not for those looking to keep a low profile.

The new Toyota Supra is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated cars of this decade-and the decade before, honestly-and this week we were finally able to see if it lives up to the hype during the first-drive event at the Summit Point Motorsports Park track in West Virginia. Spoiler alert: It does. The new Supra is the kind of sports car we were hoping it would be, and it's the best driver's car the brand has ever made.

We didn't want to just stop there, though, so we brought a Supra back to our Ann Arbor, Michigan, office to subject it to our full instrumented testing. And because we know our audience (and because we were interested, too), we decided to compare the new A90 Supra's numbers to those of a Supra Turbo that we tested in 1993, the first year of the fourth-generation A80 model. We won't make any judgments about which car is actually better without driving them back to back, but you'd all be armchair racing with these numbers anyway, right?

Specs

But before we get to the test numbers, we're gonna drone on about specs for a minute. The 2020 Supra bucks the modern trend of every new generation of a car being bigger and heavier than the last. At 172.5 inches long, the new Supra is 5.2 inches shorter than the fourth-gen car and its 97.2-inch wheelbase is 3.2 inches shorter; the new one also is 1.7 inches wider and 0.7 inch taller. The new Supra has the old one beat in terms of weight, too. That 1993 Turbo was 3480 pounds, while the new car weighed in at 3372 pounds-a 108-pound difference. The Mark IV Supra was a two-plus-two, with a small set of seats behind the driver and passenger, but the new Supra is strictly a two-seater; they both have a 10-cubic-foot cargo area accessed by a hatchback.

  2020 Toyota Supra Makes Thrilling Return The Toyota Supra returns to the market after a two-decade absence with sharper reflexes, extroverted styling, advanced safety systems, and modern infotainment technology . This fifth-generation coupe is now more focused on being a great sports car. It's strictly a two-seater now, too.The origin story for this latest Supra started as a partnership between Toyota and BMW to develop a shared sports car platform. BMW uses it for the recent Z4 roadster.Each automaker uses the same platform and a version of a BMW powertrain: Toyota uses a 3.

The 2020 Toyota Supra Is Not What We Expected but It Is Very Good. I bring this up to say that like those cars, both the new Supra and aged 86 have taken their fair share of criticism. The Supra ’ s been dinged for its two-seater setup, BMW guts and lack of a proper manual gearbox (though I’ll concede

Both Supras are rear-wheel drive and use 3.0-liter inline-six engines fed by forced induction, but that's where the similarities start to end. As it was developed in partnership with BMW, the new Supra uses a BMW-sourced six with a single turbo, mated only to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The fourth-gen Supra Turbo had a Toyota-developed twin-turbo six that could be paired either with a six-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. (Base models used a naturally aspirated version of the six with a five-speed manual or four-speed auto.) Actual horsepower and torque numbers haven't changed much in the two-and-a-half decades between generations, with the 1993 car making 320 horsepower and 315 lb-ft and the 2020 model producing 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft.

Performance

Okay, now we'll get to what you really care about. In its day, the Mark IV Supra was quick as hell. The manual-equipped Turbo model that we tested in 1993 hit 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and went through the quarter-mile in 13.1 seconds at 109 mph. In a 1993 six-car comparison test, which it won, we described the Supra Turbo as "a rocket car" that pulled like a train. The 2020 Supra destroys the old car, though, with a 3.8-second zero-to-60-mph time and a quarter-mile dispatched in 12.3 seconds at 113 mph. The A80's 11.1-second zero-to-100-mph and 19.9-second zero-to-130 runs were similarly beaten; the new car posted times of 9.5 seconds to 100 mph and 17.4 seconds to 130.

The 2020 Toyota Supra Is the Proper Sports Car It Needs to Be

Okay, there was the 86, but let's face it, everyone who drove one of those four seaters wanted another 100 horsepower. The Supra has two seats and an extra 130 ponies.

The new Supra is also way quicker in passing, but that's to be expected given the transmission differences. The A90's 5-to-60-mph rolling start time of 4.6 seconds is 1.3 seconds quicker than the A80's, but the real improvement comes in the 30-to-50 and 50-to-70 acceleration runs, which are done in top gear. At 2.5 seconds from 30 to 50 mph and 2.8 seconds from 50 to 70 mph, the new Supra crushes the old car, which recorded times of 13.1 seconds and 8.1 seconds, respectively, in the same tests.

There is one category where the Mark IV should have the new car beat: top speed. Toyota says the new Supra is limited to 155 mph, while the 1993 car was able to hit 160 mph in our hands. But in our testing, the new car exceeded the limiter, still pulling past the 160 mark. We estimate its real top speed to be around 162 mph.

Grip has greatly improved, too. The A80 Turbo had 17-inch wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza RE020 tires, sized 235/45 in front and 255/40 in the rear, while the A90 uses 19-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, sized 255/35 in front and 275/35 in back. On our skidpad, the old car pulled 0.95 g, which was in the realm of (or better than) many higher-end sports cars at the time. But in the new car we recorded an excellent 1.07 g, nearly matching a Porsche 911 GT3.

The new Supra also has bigger brakes, using 13.7-inch vented discs in front and 13.6-inch vented discs in the rear, 1.0 inch and 0.8 inch larger than the old car (which also had vented discs). With a 160-foot stopping distance from 70 mph, the 1993 Supra would still be respectable today. But the 2020 Supra stopped in 148 feet, again putting it in the league of more hard-core modern machinery.

So that's how the two Supras compare on paper, at least in numbers. Sure, it might not be surprising that the new one is better in basically every measurable way-but it kind of had to be, right? Supra fans aren't exactly tame and easy to please.

There are two obvious ways the fourth-gen car is better in our eyes, though: It had that massive optional wing and an optional targa roof. The new Supra doesn't have either of those things. So we guess it's a tie, then.

Every Supra from the big show (maybe)From Mustangs and Camaros to Dodge Demons, as well as Civics and Subarus, SEMA has always been about high performance (fun fact, the S and E used to stand for Speed Equipment). This year, one of the hottest performance cars on display was the 2020 Toyota Supra (aka A90 Supra and Supra Mk5), which we have covered extensively through comparison tests, dyno runs, and in our recent Best Driver's Car competition.
