Northwest Most Fun Coupe — 2020 Toyota GR Supra
Sports car enthusiasts can rejoice now that the famed Toyota Supra returns after an absence of more than 20 years. The all-new GR Supra derives power from an inline 6-cylinder engine — like every previous Supra model. Toyota partnered with BMW to develop a new platform for the car; the BMW-sourced 3.0-liter engine with twin-scroll turbocharger and variable valve timing produces 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque from 1600–4500 rpm. The engine pairs with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission with manual mode and shift paddles — a stick-shifting manual transmission is not offered. Toyota engineers tuned the engine, transmission and suspension to create the Supra driving experience. Run to the Sun attendees felt they hit the mark, choosing the 2020 GR Supra as the Northwest Most Fun Coupe over a field of strong competitors.
