Toyota (TM -0.1%) unveils the fifth-generation GR Supra at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The automaker says the 2020 Supra goes on sale in summer of 2019 and will be available in two grades – 3.0 and 3.0 Premium, as well as a launch edition which will be based on the 3.0 Premium grade. Toyota engineers kept a strong connection to Toyota's 1967 2000 GT and 1993-2002 Supra in both design and mechanical configuration.

Supra specs: "The 2020 model will be powered by a turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine. The new Supra's 3.0-liter twin-scroll turbo six will produce 335 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque and will be teamed with a quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Toyota projects 0-60 mph acceleration in 4.1 seconds, which makes this the quickest Toyota-branded production vehicle to date."
