What Are the 5 Coolest Things Fresno Drivers Will Love About the All-New 2020 Toyota GR Supra?

Our brand's coupe has been around a while, as a Toyota Celica variant, through the early-to-mid-1980s and an '86 redesign, and to a 1990s model that rocketed it into the pantheon of sports car favorites. Now, it's back here in Fresno from a long hiatus, and its "GR" acronym says one unmistakable thing: design in collaboration with GAZOO Racing, the Toyota global racing division. Cult classic reborn? Start your engines with us here at Michael Toyota and decide for yourself! Here are five features sure to help you make up your mind.

  1. A twin-scroll turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. The engine comes standard, mated with a smooth-operating ZF 8HP eight-speed transmission. The result: the ability to produce a heart-pounding 335 horsepower backed by 365 pound-feet of torque.
  2. A rigid, lightweight, 50:50 distributed chassis. This means excellent balance, and together with a double-bubble roof, flared rear spoiler, and wide, air-channeling grille, you can look forward to what every sports car should have: a low center of gravity and near-zero lift and drag.
  3. An adaptive suspension with an active differential. Along with rear-wheel drive, this system helps you make the most of traction, with normal and sport driving modes to offer an exhilarating thrill or two as you climb to an amazing top speed of 155 scorching mph.
  4. Brembo front brakes. These might deliver some of the most dependable stopping power around, but it's even more razor-sharp given available Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.
  5. Active driver aids galore. Opt for everything from a pre-collision system, pedestrian detector, and lane-departure warning system to steering assist, auto high beam control, and speed limit info. Any way you go, Toyota has the security of your cruise covered.

Of course, the 2020 Toyota GR Supra Launch Edition is pretty awesome, too. It's a limited run of just 1,500 cars, appearing in Renaissance Red 2.0, Nocturnal, and Absolute Zero hues, bearing Akio Toyoda's sought-after signature, and sporting red mirror caps, matte-black wheels in forged-aluminum, and an interior carbon-fiber badge.
