  • Supra’s NAIAS Reveal ME Confirm

    Toyota Force GM’s ME NAIAS Reveal?

    Can you imagine that GM might have re-thought the C8’s reveal timeline when yesterday it was announced by The Fast Lane Car, MotorAuthority and elsewhere, that at long last, after years of teasing the Supra, that the Supra will be revealed at the mid-January, North American International Auto Show.

    So if GM has other plans whatever they were/are, if they were other than and “not before, nor at NAIAS,” could they now allow Supra to be the only major sports car to be revealed at the Show. And with so many other major brands already stating that they are not showing up at NAIAS, if GM were to have before choosen to wait for some reason, for some other location, say for the mid-march Geneva Auto Show (the world’s most prestigious show), that if no ME were revealed at NAIAS, that the Supra would be the OEM major (and perhaps only) sports car reveal at Detroit — and the indignity for GM if that were the case with GM’s Renaissance Headquarters being just blocks away.

    To me, if GM had thought Chicago, Geneva or even waiting to the New York Show in mid-April, could the Supra reveal have changed the ME’s reveal timing?

    At long last, the wait for the 2020 Toyota Supra may soon be over.

    We’ve known for awhile now that Toyota is working on launching a new Supra. We’ve seen it as a racing concept, we saw it at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but noproduction model has materialized. Now, it seems the wait may soon be coming to a close. The 2020 Toyota Supra – also known as the A90 – will appear in its finished form at the Detroit Auto Show.

    A Facebook video posted to Toyota Germany’s Facebook page showed reservations for the 2020 Toyota Supra open today. One of the comments on that video, shared by the folks over at SupraMkV forums, revealed the car will be unveiled in January. Specifically, we’ll be able to see it in the sheet metal at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

ID:	11673 Hopefully it will wake GM up finally after all of these years of toying with the idea. Imagine where the Vette would be today if they released the ME 20 years ago?

          I agree. The Japanese build some cool things but in my opinion can't seem to build a real truck or sports car. How can I say it... lots of fancy vegetables but no meat and potatoes.

            ME is the biggest story in corvette history, it will be revealed at the Detroit show, GM owes it to their home town. I wish it was in California but Detroit makes sense it’s just to big of a story. We will start seeing tease pictures released by GM since their is not much time left for Detroit show. I think the only hold up is so many C7 are sitting on dealers lots this could be holding up the announcement.

              ToyBMW can set up a tent and announce their Supra/Z4 right next to the ME, it will not matter one bit because the ME will be the talk of the world. I feel that the Supra will be a bigger let-down than the new NSX. In fact, it would be incredibly unwise for ToyBMW to announce their car simultaneously as the ME.

                Compared to the concept car this is very disappointing. It is so reminiscent of the Z4… Maybe they are using leftover parts?

                  Agree totally, for while the concept was really exciting, and IMO, this is a sad production version.

                    Not bad...never been a real fan of the Japanese "insect" styling cues but this isn't as bad a some. Never cared for the C7's angular styling as compared to the much more graceful C6 lines. Being a Toyota it should be a reliable as a ball peen hammer and should have great aftermarket support. Bears watching in my opinion.

                      I have owned numerous BMWs and in my experience, they are top-notch quality....But quality is not the central point of focus here; Toyota has taken something as iconic and legendary as the Supra and teamed up with a partner to create a car that I believe will be off base with its customer base. Think about it.... would 25 year old Johnny go buy a new "supra" for 60K when he can just buy a pre-owned GTR, or a C8 ME for a little bit more? They will lose their fanboys and the price point will not attract many new followers... EXACTLY like the new NSX.

                        New Supra looks like a hard top Miata with a body kit.

                            The last Supra didn't have a customer really was the used car buyer that had paaion for the vehicle it was easily modified...

                            This latest iteration will fall flat in the sales race as no one bought the last see t generation when new...

                            Jmo doesn't matter when the Supra is released .

                            It's a Dee ecaee long hype that ends up delivering a BMW z4 coupe

                              Documents from transmission supplier ZFindicate the Supra's six will offer up 335 hp from a BMW-borrowed single-turbo 3.0-liter B58B30.The BMW Z4M from 2006-08 had a 3.2-liter inline-6 that delivered 330 horsepower.
                              Way to really move forward, Toyota!

                              ....I hope they DO reveal this simultaneously just for the lulz.
