The 'Toyota Supra Dynasty' Started With This Intensely '80s Half-Animated Ad

The 'Toyota Supra Dynasty' Started With This Intensely '80s Half-Animated Ad

One of the worst things about being born as a late Millennial having missed out on the insane shit that was the ’80s ad scene. And no industry went more ham than automotive. Toyota, when it needed to sell the world on the new Supra (this time not “Celica Supra,”) got down to business.

In the early ’80s, the OH WHAT A FEELING campaigns explained how dependable Toyotas were.

As time went on, the...

Next-Gen BMW M2 Will Get Two Versions As BMW Tests Limits Of Absurd Lineup: Report

Next-Gen BMW M2 Will Get Two Versions As BMW Tests Limits Of Absurd Lineup: Report

The outgoing BMW 2 Series is the M2 Competition—a 405 hp, 406 lb-ft tire-shredding two-door coupe. The new BMW 2 Series is an all-wheel drive sedan based on a Mini. Reports claim BMW will now make two different M-versions—one for each configuration—for some reason.

As is standard for BMW’s model lineup, things can be confusing here. The current, outgoing 2019 BMW M2 Competition is based on...

The 255 HP Four-Cylinder Toyota Supra Is Coming To The U.S. In 2021

The 255 HP Four-Cylinder Toyota Supra Is Coming To The U.S. In 2021

Last Spring, Toyota crushed dreams of a more affordable four-cylinder Supra in the United States saying, even though the car was certified in California, there were no plans to bring the engine option to the U.S. Well, it seems something changed over at Toyota, as the company announced Thursday that a GR Supra 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo option is also coming to America.

The turbocharged...

The MKIV Toyota Supra Was New Again For One Glorious Day This Year

The MKIV Toyota Supra Was New Again For One Glorious Day This Year

For a brief moment in time just recently, a perfectly preserved billboard for the MKIV Toyota Supra–an icon of millennial car nostalgia and ’90sness in general–shone gloriously for all to see. It was The Best.

Gabriel Ronquillo, Digital Marketing Manager at San Francisco Toyota, saw this weird rip in the space-time continuum as the present-day billboard messaging was being changed and dropped...

Toyota's Supra GT300 Racer Sounds Way Too Good For It To Really Exist

Toyota's Supra GT300 Racer Sounds Way Too Good For It To Really Exist

The new 5th generation Toyota Supra is, by all accounts , a good car but perhaps not a great one. Now is a good opportunity for Toyota to introduce a righteously riotous version of the Supra to go racing, thus extending the Supra’s legendary name. The GT4 version already exists, but on home turf the only series that really matters is Super GT. Lexus already holds a tight grip on the GT500...

The Afro Pick 2Fast 2Furious Supra Was Inspired By Something Way Cooler

The Afro Pick 2Fast 2Furious Supra Was Inspired By Something Way Cooler

The graphic on the side of the butterscotch Toyota Supra in 2Fast 2Furious was an afro pick. And if that blows your mind, wait ’til you see how the studio faked a whole engine for the stunt cars. The main prop car though was actually pretty impressively built, even if it wasn’t set up to be fast.

It’s Christmas come early–we’ve got another Fast And Furious Backstory YouTube video...

You Don't Need To Engine Swap Your Toyota To Make 1,000 HP

You Don't Need To Engine Swap Your Toyota To Make 1,000 HP

When the world saw showed the new Toyota Supra , the world wept that there was no Toyota-designed engine under the hood. Rather than some new 3JZ, there was a BMW B58 straight six . Well, everyone may dry their tears, as tuning legend Steph Papadakis got that stock Supra engine to the four-figure mark.

Nobody Is Cross-Shopping The Toyota Supra With Anything Else

Nobody Is Cross-Shopping The Toyota Supra With Anything Else

The 2020 Toyota Supra. Dun dun duuuuuun. The Goliath. The all-powerful, Japanese tuning legend, whose predecessor’s iron-heart struck fear and wonder into the quaking souls of Italian exotics. This is the new one, and it has some pretty big shoes to fill.

Look, there are things we like and don’t like about the new Supra. Things we like include the looks. Maybe you hated it in photographs, but...

There Are An Obscene Number Of Toyota Supras At SEMA This Year

There Are An Obscene Number Of Toyota Supras At SEMA This Year

You can count on three things in this world: death, taxes, and an absolutely absurd number of 2020 Toyota Supras showing up at SEMA 2019. But exactly how many is that? One wild man actually went out of his way to count them.

This video comes from throtl on YouTube and is honestly one of the most unintentionally hilarious things I’ve ever seen. The Supra hype has been through the roof this...

This Photo Perfectly Illustrates What NASCAR Looks Like Vs. What NASCAR Could Look Like

This Photo Perfectly Illustrates What NASCAR Looks Like Vs. What NASCAR Could Look Like

This picture distributed by Toyota is meant to show off two of its Supra race cars: the Supra stock car that competes in NASCAR’s Xfinity Series but does not have anything stock about it, and the Supra GT4 road racing car that actually has a stock chassis. In a way, it shows what NASCAR could be.

The whole methodology of NASCAR vehicle design is that it trades the cost of developing and...

This 2020 Toyota Supra Got LS V8-Swapped But Not With The Engine You Think

This 2020 Toyota Supra Got LS V8-Swapped But Not With The Engine You Think

One of the very first two 2020 Toyota Supras to get engine swapped just got its engine changed again, this time from a Toyota 2JZ straight six to a V8. It’s not the LS you’d think it’d be, but it is an LS engine.

The exact engine is the 3UZ, the second development of the 1UZ that powered the iconic original LS400. That was the 1UZ, though. The 3UZ powered, uh, the Lexus LS430 among other...

Why Race Other Cars When You Could Spend $194,000 To Bring Glory To The Name Of Supra?

Why Race Other Cars When You Could Spend $194,000 To Bring Glory To The Name Of Supra?

This is not a dealer markup. This is the Toyota Supra GT4 race car, yours for 175,000€ (about $194,000 USD) before taxes. It is the absolute business.

Let me begin by saying that this is the car you buy if you want to race in a specific class of sports car racing, the GT4 class (one down from GT3, duh) which is good for various kinds of sprint races the world over, U.S. included.

The big...

Toyota Racing Development Will Debut Supra 3000GT Concept, Massive Wing Next Month

Toyota Racing Development Will Debut Supra 3000GT Concept, Massive Wing Next Month

Since the newest generation of the world’s favorite tuner car is now here, it’s only right for Toyota Racing Development to bring its own version of a modified fifth-generation Supra to SEMA next month. Toyota gave us a hint about what that will entail this week: a modern GR Supra 3000GT Concept.

TRD teased the concept in a YouTube video on Sunday, which showed a bunch of terms like...

Countersteer Your true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

Look, as long as the production of new models ramps up slowly and can’t match demand, there are going to be dealers looking to make a buck off of buyers who are willing to pay for novelty.

From Hellcats to Type Rs to Corvettes to Veloster Ns , the markup problem largely affects halo cars, the ones that people usually...

Modifying The 2020 Toyota Supra To 1,000 HP Almost Looks Too Easy

Modifying The 2020 Toyota Supra To 1,000 HP Almost Looks Too Easy

The 2020 Toyota Supra infamously shares a lot of its mechanics with the new BMW Z4, including its engine. Lucky for Toyota, the Supra’s 335 horsepower single-turbo straight six is extremely capable, and one racing team is trying to push it to make a whopping 1,000 horsepower.

The goal for drag racing legend and drift car icon, the reformed street racer Stephan Papadakis at Papadakis...

You Hate To See Seven BMW Supras Recalled For Faulty Seat Belts

It was only a matter of time before the Toyota Supra got hit with a recall. I’m not harping on BMW/Toyotas’ build quality or anything here, it just seems like all cars get recalled over something or other these days. This time, it’s over some seat belts.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a safety recall report last month that concerned the 2020 Toyota Supra. But it was...

The Four-Cylinder 2020 Supra Super GT Car Sounds Bizarre

The Four-Cylinder 2020 Supra Super GT Car Sounds Bizarre

The heart of a Toyota Supra is a straight-six engine. That was the whole reason for the very first Supra existing, and it’s why Toyota went to the I6-experts at BMW to partner up on the new one . And yet, here’s the GR Supra race car with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder boosted to the moon and back.

Need For Speed In Real Life Part Two: More Cars, More Racing

A few months ago, I lost my mind over a very fun, in-real-life Need for Speed video. It was only a minute long, but the joy sustained me for quite a while. Now, Part Two is out and it’s nearly five minutes long! You guys.

Why I Actually Prefer The BMW Z4 To The 2020 Toyota Supra

Why I Actually Prefer The BMW Z4 To The 2020 Toyota Supra
Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

Toyota says the 2020 Supra feels different to drive than its mechanical twin, the 2020 BMW Z4 M40i. Actually, since the start, both carmakers have been hammering about how distinguished each car is, telling us they went off their own separate ways once the shared architecture was laid out.

I’ve been tracking this BMW-Toyota love...

Your Brooding 2020 Toyota Supra Wallpaper Is Here

Your Brooding 2020 Toyota Supra Wallpaper Is Here

Despite a flood of media coverage of the new Supra, we haven’t actually seen a lot of high-quality photos. Toyota’s press kit is pretty slim at the moment and the cars haven’t made it to a lot of serious photographers.

But Jalopnik reader and professional photographer Arlen Liverman (@aml_photos) recently got to shoot one for his company, AML Photos. And it was a white one, which is...
