Great purchase of 2021 Supra Premium 3.0
Just bought the 2021 nitro yellow Supra from a local Toyota dealer and loving it every minute of it. The color and performance are just epic. The exhaust sound with sport mode is terrific. Looking forward to joy ride for years to come.
This cars is a blast to drive
This car is everything you read about. It is super zippy and looks just amazing. There are a few interior issues (no sunglasses holder, no sync in climate control, no support for Android Auto) but no deal breakers and everything else is just so awesome. It grips the road and has amazing acceleration. The gas mileage is actually quite good!
Unbelievable fun and performance for the money.
I was not attracted to the GR Supra initially. I was not sure of the exterior styling and the co-development with BMW. The GR Supra was right in my price range and budget so I decided to test drive it. I test drove the 3.0 Premium model. I was blow away by the refinement and smoothness of the engine and transmission. The engine makes a lot of power without any noticeable turbo lag. Lots of usable torque. The ZF 8-speed automatic transmission was among the very best torque converter automatics I have ever tried. It's better then BMW's dual clutch automatic, much smoother and refined. And it shifts up and down at super fast times. It's a better transmission then the BMW DCT. The suspension is supple in normal mode and VERY planted in SPORT mode. In normal mode the car rides super smooth and very quiet for a sports car. It would make a awesome GT Car for road trips. You can easily do many hours behind the wheel in the super adjustable power seats. SPORT MODE transforms the car from Clark Kent to Superman. The steering, suspension, engine mapping, exhaust is totally different. It's like a totally different car. The exhaust in SPORT MODE cracks and pops like a race car. LOTS OF FUN The only negatives I can think of? The wind noise over 50 mph with the windows down is insane. It sounds and feels like opening a door in a air plane or something? Watch your head getting in and out. You will knock you head until you get used to contorting to get in and out. The exterior styling took time for me to get used to. I like it more and more every time I see it. The biggest negative might not be a issue but it would always be in the back of my mind. I am a little worried about Toyota's reputation for legendary bulletproof reliability because it is a joint venture with a not so reliable BMW? I supposed you can always buy a Toyota Extended Warranty? Overall the 3.0 GR Supra is a bargain for it's refinement and performance. The BMW sourced turbo charged engine and ZF transmission are silky smooth. The revised 2021 suspension, steering, etc is noticeable and makes the Supra even better. Not too many cars at this price point are this fun. Toyota and BMW hit it out of the park!
