    Owners of the fifth generation Toyota Supra are thrilled about that car

    In July 1993, the fourth and so far last generation of the Supra came on the market. Internationally, this type is called " Supra MKIV ".

    In early 1986, the third generation of the Supra was introduced. It is also the first that has not been marketed with the suffix Celica.

    The second generation was presented in the fall of 1981 and had a completely independent drive with the new (170 hp) 6-cylinder engines.

    The first Supra built from spring 1978 to summer 1981 was still offered as a top version of the Celica first in Japan and later in the United States.

    Toyota 86 and Supra chief engineer Tetsuya Tada continues to drop hints about the Japanese brand's performance car plans, and in a new interview with Motoring Research he offers a few more tantalizing bits of into about what's in the pipeline for the company. For example, early work is underway on a range-topping Supra GRMN.

    The standard Supra will arrive first and go on sale in 2019, according to Tada. Regarding the GRMN version, Tada told Motoring Research: "I would like to see something like that eventually. We are preparing for it”.

    Tada also confirms that the Supra shares its inline-six engine and transmission with the next-gen BMW Z4. However, he brushes off concerns that they have identical driving manners. "Each company defined what we wanted and went from there," Tada told Motoring Research. "Both cars have completely different suspension and software calibration, for example."

    The Supra will be quite a high-tech machine, too. For example, and app allows drivers to take their car to the track, and then compare the lap times against how recent Le-Mans-winner Fernando Alonsowould perform. It's sort of like racing a ghost car in Gran Turismo in the real world.

    The mounting details suggest the range-topping Supra at launch arrives with a BMW-sourced 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six producing 335 horsepower (250 kilowatts) and 369 pound-feet (500 Newton-meters) of torque. It can allegedly accelerate the coupe to 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds. Recent rumors also speculate the US-spec Supra would cost $63,500, and the coupe reportedly weighs 3,300 pounds (1,497 kilograms).
