Supra fans will be excited to know that Toyota has more in store for them in 2021, releasing a whole new model aside from powering up its existing one.

Called the Supra 2.0, the Japanese automaker will be releasing a slightly less powerful but lighter model, opting for a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine instead of the usual 3.0-liter inline-six. Sourced from BMW — it’s the same engine as the one on the BMW Z4 30i — it can push out 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, giving it a 0-60 mph time of 5.0 seconds flat. Unfortunately, it’ll also use the same ZF eight-speed automatic transmission as its more powerful counterpart, and a top speed that’s also capped at 155 mph. However, sitting on smaller 18-inch wheels, the entire car weighs more than 200 pounds lighter.

As for the standard 3.0-liter inline-six model, Toyota will be upgrading its power output for 2021. Using a new dual-branch exhaust system that holds six ports instead of the regular two, and a different piston design which allows the compression ratio to be reduced, the upcoming model will go from the original 335 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque to an impressive 382 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque. 0-60 mph will reduce from 4.1 seconds to just 3.9 seconds.

There’s currently no pricing information for the new models, but expect the four-cylinder 2.0-liter version to be at a much discounted price compared to the standard inline-six version. Both will be available at dealerships some time in June.
