Is The 2018 Toyota Supra Worth All The Hype?

The 2018 Toyota Supra has been spotted several times, until recently when it lost a significant amount of cover. Unfortunately, it still doesn't reveal much of its whole character as Toyota still manages to hide its juicy bits.

The eagle-eyed spies, however, never miss out a beat in seeing what could be a groundbreaking information about the 2018 Toyota Supra. The new spied shots actually reveal massive air intakes in the front bumper and provide important details about its taillights detail.

As per the most recent spotting, some extra body panels from the prototype have been removed, which somehow provide the outline of the sports coupe. It does show an aggressive looking coupe, which may well be ready to take on any of its competitions.

Its sharp lines and smaller windows from either side give it a tough looking demeanor that may make industry experts rave about the upcoming coupe. Its interior may also provide that scintillating flavor as the infotainment system with accompanying rotary dial controller is found on the central tunnel. It looks very similar to that of BMW's.

However, as all other cars, this may not be everyone's cup of tea. Some are not hyped up with the upcoming Supra. For one, the previous four-seater Toyota coupe is capable of accelerating from zero to 60 mph in just 4.6-seconds with a top speed of 177 mph. This plays a serious threat to the likes of Porsches and Ferraris.

The 2018 Toyota Supra seems to be down in performance. Its main rivals, the Honda NSX and Nissan GT-R are capable of accelerating at insane speeds with 500nbhp to boot. According to the reports, the 2018 Supra suggest having a six-cylinder turbocharged engine capable of 400-horsepower. Now, this is where the issue starts.

With two of its toughest competitors packed with much power, it is a little disappointing and baffling to know that the 2018 Toyota Supra may only come with less power. It makes it look like its aggressive exterior may not match its underwhelming power altogether. Look, it is powerful, but not enough to compete with other prime coupes. Stay tuned for latest reports on the 2018 Toyota Supra for confirmation.
