The iconic Toyota sports coupe may soon return to the Mount Pleasant, WI area for the 2020 model year after a long hiatus. If what little we already know about its 3.0, 3.0 Premium, and Launch Edition trim lineup is any indication, we'll be in for an adrenalized thrill-ride four decades in the making, too. After all, it's already being billed an evolution from "grand tourer to pure driver's car." Get the scoop from the experts at Racine Toyota!

Perhaps the history of the Toyota Supra speaks best for what will become for Milwaukee-area drivers the 2020 GR Supra. It began as a Toyota Celica variant, the highly recognizable Celica Supra, also called A4O, in 1978. From there, the car quickly morphed into a second, early-to-mid-1980s generation. It diverged in '86 to stand alone as a model rebuilt from the ground up to speed-demoniac spec. Finally, in the mid-to-late-1990s, it speared in the fourth generation that made it an icon.

Now, with the "GR" acronym, the new 2020 Supra will nod to its GAZOO Racing origins, calling out Toyota's global racing division on no uncertain terms. Plus, it'll take a little inspiration from the legendary Toyota 2000 GT. Regardless, it's sure to be a cult classic reborn. Just imagine your prospects for cruising up through Oak Creek and over to West Allis, down to Kenosha, out to Burlington, and back again.

Its modern design and leading-edge features surely evince that. The car's rigid, lightweight chassis, for instance, will feature a 50:50 front and rear weight distribution. Together with a double-bubble roof and flared rear spoiler, you can count on it to maintain an ideal center of gravity while reducing lift and drag. The body will also culminate in a wide, air-channeling grille. That'll be a boon for the twin-scroll turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine. It'll need it to operate at peak efficiency while shelling out a monster 335 horsepower driven by 365 pound-feet of torque. Now, bring a rear-wheel drivetrain and an adaptive suspension and active differential into the mix. You'll soon see how the beast will manage to reach that prospective top speed of 155 blistering mph.

Of course, there'll be plenty more to look forward to in the new 2020 Toyota GR Supra: Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and Brembo front brakes for instance, not to mention a Launch Edition of just 1500 units, set to appear in colors like Renaissance Red 2.0, Nocturnal, or Absolute Zero and bearing Akio Toyoda's sought-after signature. Be sure to keep an eye out for updates before the big reveal. In the meantime, you're welcome to visit our Kilbourn Drive showroom to get the Toyota sports car experience for yourself, too.
