Toyota Supra 2020 vs. Supra 1993: Legend Meets Newbie

January 20, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

At the Detroit Auto Show this week, the revived Toyota Supra debuted, which will be sold as a 2020 model. The first impression is a great sports car. How does it differ from the legendary Toyota Supra in 1993?

The new Supra does not look very different from its legendary “ancestor”. Of course, it has a more modern design (for example, completely new headlights and wheels, a redesigned hood), but it is immediately clear that we are talking about the same model. The new Supra is slightly shorter wheelbase than the model of the previous generation, but at the same time it is slightly wider.

Toyota Supra 2020 is equipped with a 3.0 liter turbo engine producing 335 hp, which is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 1993 model had a 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine with a power of 320 hp, working with a 6-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Supra new generation to 100 km / h accelerates in 4.1 seconds at a maximum speed of 249 km / h, and the old Supra to 100 km/h accelerates in 4.6 seconds at a maximum speed of 257 km / h. Yes, the maximum speed of the old Supra is a little more, but this is due to the fact that the new model has a speed limit.

On the winding road, the new Supra, thanks to its lighter body, the ideal weight distribution and slightly modified dimensions, has an advantage. However, this is only our guess. On the roads, no one has ever compared these two cars.

Toyota Supra 1993 at one time sold for 39,900 dollars. If the fate of inflation in the United States, now such a sports car would cost 70,296 dollars. The new Supra will cost from 49,990 dollars. That is, in fact, it is about 20,000 dollars cheaper than Supra 1993.
