The highly anticipated 2020 Toyota Supra made its debut at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, and being the first Supra released since its discontinuation in 2002, it got mixed reactions. Some said it was ‘glorious’, while some were weren’t too happy with it.

One thing that’s certain is that many were hoping for a design more like the 18-year-old 2002 Supra, which might not be so realistic considering how things have changed. The 2020 Supra, which is not the only new sports car to be complained about for modernizing its design was auctioned off for $2.1 million by Barrett-Jackson.

The 2020 Supra appears to be partially influenced by the BMW Z4 G29 and utilizes some BMW parts. Its turbocharged 335HP inline 6-cylinder engine can accelerate it from 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds, and has a top speed electronically limited to 155 mph. The Z4 G29 is a two-door sports coupe.

Automatic transmissions have been enjoying increased popularity over the years (nearly everyone buys them), as public acceptance of automation and a desire for fewer distractions grows.
