The Toyota Supra now comes with two drivetrain options, a 3.0L inline six-cylinder engine fed by a turbocharger and mated to the rear axle via an 8-speed automatic gearbox. For 2021, Toyota has upgraded the six-cylinder engine specifications, claiming that this engine, sourced from BMW, makes 382 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque, almost an increase of 50 horsepower from last year. The six-cylinder engine that is capable of 0-60 times in under four seconds, is now not the singular option for Supra buyers.
New for 2021, is a 2.0L four-cylinder turbo engine creating 255 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. While the horsepower number sounds relatively tame, the light weight of the car combined with the big torque numbers mean that the Supra is exceptionally quick.
Handling is exemplary, with a wide track and quick reflexes, the Supra turns in well and feels adjustable on the limit without feeling any sense of nervousness or unpredictability. Much of that feel and competence is down to the chassis. Unlike most other modern sporty cars, the Supra doesn't share any underpinnings with a sedan or sporty coupe. The only other car that shares its chassis is also a pure sports car.
