You read that right, folks. Following a teaser at the most recent leg of the Vios Racing Festival, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has officially announced that the all-new Supra is coming to the Philippines.
The launch is set for Tuesday, July 9, so expect a ton of photos and stories from us on that date. And make no mistake, the event isn’t for the sake of media photo-ops. TMP has confirmed that it “will now be offering the much-anticipated model for retail.”
No concrete specs or prices have been revealed just yet. In the US, the Supra sports a 3.0-liter turbocharged in-line six engine generating 335hp and 495Nm of torque, and capable of propelling the coupe to a top speed of roughly 249kph.
What will be interesting to see is how the Supra will stack up, price-wise, against its twin, the BMW Z4. BMW Philippines just launched that model for the Philippine market with price tags of P3,990,000 for the 2.0-liter turbo and P5,790,000 for the 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo variants. If we had to guess, we reckon the Supra’s price will sit just under that of the more expensive Z4.
Are you excited for the Supra’s arrival?
