2019 Toyota Supra release date

It’s official! Toyota fans won’t have to wait much longer for the release of the new 2019 Supra. In fact, the 2019 sports car is expected to make its world debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2019. Toyota made the announcement on Friday in a post on the Toyota Germany Facebook page. An official sales date for the new Supra hasn’t been announced yet.

The auto maker has also posted a variety of images of the camouflaged sports car on the Toyota U.K. official site and blog. Which leads to a very important question. Is the 2019 Toyota Supra based on the 2014 Toyota FT-1 Concept? From the images we have seen so far of the 2019 Toyota Supra Concept, it seems the model has drawn inspiration from both the FT-1 and the new Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept.

What is the history of the Toyota Supra? 

The model first debuted as an off-shoot of the 1978 Toyota Celica. Popularity for the Supra grew and in 1986, Toyota created the first Supra model. The sports car was in production in the United States until 1998. It wasn’t until 2014 that Toyota created a modern version of the Supra, deemed the FT-1 Concept. Was that a hint four years ago that a new Supra was in the works? It seems so and we’re excited to see what’s new for the sports car.
