Toyota unveiled its all-new 2020 Supra sports car at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show on Monday. For fans of Toyota’s flagship sports car, it’s a moment two decades in the making, as the Japanese automaker pulled the fourth-generation Supra from the US market after 1998.

The new fifth-generation Toyota Supra, known within the company as the A90, will return to take on premium sports cars such as the Porsche 718, the Mercedes-Benz SLC, and the BMW Z4, with which it shares much of its mechanicals; the Supra was actually developed with BMW.

The A90’s styling draws inspiration from the stunning 2014 FT-1 concept car from Toyota’s Calty design center in California.

As with all Supras, the fifth gen will be powered by an inline-six-cylinder engine. This time around, it boasts 3.0 liters of displacement, a turbocharger, and 335 horsepower. The engine sends power to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. There will be no manual-transmission option.
