2019 Toyota Supra – Prototype review


Toyota got its head straight with the 2012 Toyota 86/Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ it co-developed with Subaru. Tada was chief engineer on Toyota’s side of that project, too, so with the new Supra he’s responsible for one-upping his own previous design. The A90 Supra is wider than its less-powerful little brother, the Toyota 86, but has a shorter wheelbase, 50/50 weight distribution, and lower center of gravity. It’s also twice as rigid as the 86 and as rigid as the Lexus LFA, Toyota’s $375,000 supercar from 2011-2012. Looking through the camouflage wrapping the A90 prototype, one can detect a family resemblance — A80 Supra styling cues mashed up with 86 design.
