- toyota will now produce and sell parts for the a70 (third generation) and a80 (fourth generation) supra covering model years 1986 through 2003, like that 1994 supra turbo pictured above.
- it's part of toyota's gr heritage parts project, and it is an effort to keep these legendary cars on the road.
- a select few parts are available for purchase now, but if enough people ask for the same part, toyota says it will build it and sell it.
toyota's new supra is pretty great. so great, in fact, that we named it one of car and driver's 10best cars for 2020. we love the thing almost as much as we love supras of old. we even tested it versus a low-mileage 1994 supra turbo. and toyota is giving some love to those supras of the past by reproducing and selling various parts for the a70 (mk iii, 1986–1993) and a80 (mk iv, 1994–2003) supra. supra owners, you can rejoice now.
this is all a part of toyota's gr heritage parts project, which is an effort to keep its legendary cars running. as of now, you can buy the a70's propeller shaft, door handles, fuel sender gauge, weatherstrips, and front emblems. for the a80, you can snag its headlamps, door handles, and brake booster. don't see what you need on this list? good news: toyota is accepting pleas to offer more parts.
if enough people ask for the same part, it'll give toyota a reason to build it and sell it. "we will make every effort to meet the expectations of owners,” gazoo racing head shigeki tomoyama said, standing in front of his personal a80 supra at a press conference in may. all right, everyone, let's all submit forms saying we all need a 2jz crate engine. you can ask for parts here.
toyota will display its heritage parts project at the tokyo auto salon this weekend from january 10–12.
