We’ve been fairly sure for a while now that the A90 Supra will receive its full debut at the Detroit Auto Show next January. And at last, the car’s Detroit reveal has been confirmed, albeit from an unlikely source.
Toyota Deutschland’s Facebook page posted up the video below, noting that German customers can reserve an A90 Supra online starting 2 October. Responding to a user complaining that the car is still wearing camouflage in all promotional shots, the page responded “World Premiere is at the Detroit Motor Show in January. We still need some patience…”
Whether or not the page administrator in question was supposed to drop that little nugget of information, we’re not sure, but 16 hours later at the time of writing the comment is still up. The page later added that “The market launch has nothing to do with a special philosophy. We announced the return of the Supra at a very early stage and thus complied with the wishes of our customers.”
The page noted that only 300 will be available for 2019 in the country, with 900 coming to Europe as a whole next year. Once the 300 are spoken for, a waiting list will be established. Prices, meanwhile, won’t be published until mid-January.
Toyota GB wasn’t able to confirm the UK allocation when contacted, although with demand for sports cars similarly strong in this country, it seems likely that around the same number of A90s will be sent here.
