Toyota Supra with 4-cylinder engine is dead

A month ago, there were rumors that Toyota might stop offering its sports car, the Supra. Now it’s official. According to information from the company, the Supra powered by a four-cylinder engine will no longer be on offer from 2025.

The Supra first appeared on the market in 1978, and by 2002, four generations of this grand tourer had been produced. In 2019, the fifth generation developed in cooperation with BMW arrived on the market. It shares the platform and many parts with the BMW Z4 (G29), which will also soon be discontinued. It was offered in options with 4- and 6-cylinder turbocharged engines.

There are several reasons for the shutdown of this model, and one of them is the poor sales results in the first three months of 2024 when Toyota managed to sell only 484 units of this model, which is a drop of 44.4 percent compared to the same period in 2023 (871 units).

Thus, the Toyota Supra remains only with a turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine with 382 hp (285 kW) and 368 lb-ft (499 Nm) of torque, paired with an automatic or manual transmission. That is enough for acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The version with manual transmission reaches 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds.
