The 2021 Toyota Supra 3.0 is the car Toyota ought to have launched last year. There, I said it.
If you’re one of the well-heeled among us who paid an excessive dealer markup on a 2020 Toyota GR Supra Launch Edition, well, sorry. Patience is a virtue and all that. The 2021 Supra 3.0 is more powerful, yes, but more important, it’s more rewarding and just plain better to drive both around town and on a good winding road than the debut model.
Before we get too far into what changes Toyota made to the 2021 Supra and why they make it so much better to drive than the 2020 Supra, it’d be a worthwhile endeavor to look at what was wrong with the first year of fifth-generation Supras. The Supra’s 12th-place finish at our 2019 Best Driver’s Car competition was largely due to its poor suspension tuning.
