Toyota spices up the Supra, GR86, and GR Corolla with 2024 special editions
Toyota will introduce a trio of special editions for its three performance cars: The GR Supra, the GR86 and the GR Corolla. None stand to make big strides in performance, but do have some interesting exterior treatments that will help keep the models fresh. Here are the details:
GR Supra 45th Anniversary Edition
It’s been 45 years since the Celica Supra was introduced, a surprisingly competent car that was positioned against the redesigned 1979 Nissan Z and the new Mazda RX-7. As an ode to the 1990’s models, the GR Supra 45th Anniversary edition will be available in a deep orange Mikan Blast (“mikan” means Mandarin orange in Japanese) or Absolute Zero. Built on the 3.0 Premium Grade model, this GR Supra has a large, manually-adjustable rear spoiler. Rising about three inches above the rear decklid, the spoiler has an adjustment screw that allows drivers to change its angle and influence the amount of downforce being applied to the rear wheels.
The 45th Anniversary Edition also features matte-black finished 19-inch aluminum wheels and black painted brake calipers that wear a GR logo up front. A black side panel graphic with a cutout Supra logo sweeps upward along the side, accentuating the vehicle’s contours. The 45th Anniversary Edition will be limited to 900 units, split evenly between Mikan Blast and Absolute Zero. The engine will be flanked by exclusive 45th Anniversary Edition Mikan Blast strut tower braces that bear the Toyota Gazoo racing logo. It will be available in both manual and automatic transmission options and will be powered by the same B58 inline six-cylinder 3.0-liter turbocharged engine on all 3.0 Supra models, with 382 hp and 368 lb.-ft. of torque. Look for it this fall. No price information yet.
GR86 Trueno Edition
Toyota will introduce a limited-edition Trueno package that will be offered in a throwback two-tone look that will come in a choice of Halo and black or Track Red and black. A newly available Performance Package with Sachs dampers and Brembo brakes comes as standard equipment on the Trueno Edition and will be available as an upgrade package for GR86 models.
Built on the Premium grade model, the GR86 Trueno will be available in both manual and automatic transmission models with 860 units to be produced for the U.S. market. A black-wrapped hood, black side panel graphics, and a black painted duckbill spoiler will give the model its two-tone look. In a tribute to the 1980s model that inspired its design, it will wear a Trueno Edition badge on the front bumper lip and rear decklid. Look for it this winter. It’ll be priced closer to the rollout.
GR Corolla Circuit Edition
The Toyota GR Corolla Circuit Edition adds a Blue Flame color choice (Ice Cap is also available, but you want the Blue Flame). It has black forged aluminum 18-inch BBS wheels as standard, similar to the wheels equipped on the 2023 Morizo Edition. There are also black side rocker graphics that run up to the stamped GR-Four logo.
The Circuit Edition model keeps its vented bulge hood, GR sport mesh gloss-black front grille with functional brake ducts, and angular LED headlights. Aero details continue around back, with a gloss-black rear spoiler, rear lower diffuser, and exhaust. The 300-horsepower three-cylinder engine remains.
New tweaks for 2024: Material updates include mounting bolt changes to the steering gear, rear suspension, and battery ground. Aero updates include an addition of aluminum sheets to the front and rear bumpers and a change in duct shape to the front bumper airflow outlet. The 2024 GR Corolla Circuit Edition will be available this coming winter. No pricing info yet.
