The Supra line-up is straightforward. There’s the Supra and the Supra Pro, both of which use the same 3.0-litre straight six and include adaptively damped suspension, an active limited-slip differential, adaptive cruise control, dual-zone climate-control and the 8.8in infotainment display borrowed directly from BMW. The Pro costs an additional £1300 and adds leather seats, a head-up display and wireless phone charging, although both trim levels bring an entirely acceptable level of equipment to a £50,000 sports car.
The Supra is able to fulfil its GT-car aspirations reasonably successfully. Strong touring economy gives a motorway range of around 450 miles, and there’s much more storage potential than in mid-engined rivals.
Some may find the cabin a little claustrophobic, however. This is a small car with high beltlines and something of a pillbox view through the windscreen. Equally, others will like the sense of intimacy and focus.
Despite its relatively commonplace badge, the Supra is forecast to hold its value well – 53% after three years and 36,000 miles is roughly the same as an M2 Competition, if shy of the 61% retained by the Alpine A110, which should prove a far rarer sight.
