Toyota GR Supra 2021 adds Four-cylinder Model
Supra hits the streets with more power, A91 edition and first-ever four-cylinder turbo mode
One year after its debut, Toyota is raising the bar for the 2021 GR Supra with six-cylinder models that leap ahead with a power boost and retuned chassis, while the first ever four-cylinder turbo model joins the line.
The first 1,500 Mk. V Supras were Launch Editions, and for 2021 Toyota is offering 1,000 new A91 Editions.
This special edition Supra will have the 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine and will be available in a choice of two colours, Nocturnal or Refraction, the latter exclusive to the A91 Edition and an all-new color for Supra.
On the 2021 Supra 3.0 Premium and A91 Edition, the front Brembo brake calipers are painted red and feature the “TOYOTA Supra” logo.
For 2021, Toyota is keeping the pedal down, boosting output of the Supra’s turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six from 335 hp to 382 hp for a 14-percent increase. Torque rises from 365 lb/ft to 368 lb/ft.
The increased output results from a slew of upgrades throughout the engine. The new dual-branch exhaust manifold, with six ports instead of two, improves airflow and heat management. A new piston design reduces the engine’s compression ratio from 11:1 to 10.2:1 in order to prevent abnormal combustion due to high boost.
The 2021 Supra 2.0 offers an intermediate model between the Toyota 86 and the Supra 3.0, giving the customer three distinct Toyota sports car choices.
The 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder engine shares much of its technology with the 3.0-litre inline-six, including a twin-scroll turbo, direct fuel injection and for 255 hp and 295 lb/ft of torque.
