The 2021 Toyota GR Supra might many 2020 GR Supra owners regret their purchase, or not quite. The big news, or rather everyone knew it was happening, is that the 2.0-litre 4-cylinder version of the GR Supra 2.0 is here and priced as of $56,390. For 2020 Supra owners, it’s the 3.0 that could be upsetting, priced at $67,690.
When the GR Supra launched last year, it featured the BMW’s turbo 3.0-litre straight-6 which was only rated at 335 horsepower. As we all know, every 2020 GR Supra that ended up on the dyno managed to produce far more than the official specs. This led many to state that the Supra’s actual output was identical or nearly to the BMW Z4 M40i’s 382 horsepower.
Toyota’s come clean for the 2021 GR Supra 3.0 and now official rates the 3.0-litre at 382 horsepower, dropping the 0-96 km/h (0-60 mph) time to 3.9 from 4.1. More has been done to the 3.0 as its chassis’ been retuned to better mitigate roll and improve cornering ability. Some elements were mechanically upgraded to complement digital updates, and this includes the Adaptive Variable Suspension and Vehicle Stability Control. Other changes include “Supra” logos on the front brake calipers and wireless phone charger.
Considering the 2020 GR Supra retailed for $64,990, the 2021’s $2,700 price increase seems like a deal.
For only an extra $1,200, the GR Supra 3.0 A91 Edition gets matte black 19-inch wheels, carbon fiber mirror caps, a unique black/blue interior, an integrated rear spoiler, and a unique bodyside graphic. The A91 is available in one of two body colours: Refraction (unique to the Special Edition) and Nocturnal.
The 2021 Toyota GR Supra 2.0 features the BMW Z4 sDrive30i’s turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder which produces 255-horsepower and 294 lb.-ft. of torque. Although it’s down on power versus the 3.0, it also weighs 200 fewer pounds. This enables the car to reach 96 km/h (60 mph) in 5 seconds flat. Now, all that remains to be seen is if Toyota will dare introduce the manual transmission with the 4-cylinder…
