Sticking to a single, more powerful engine option, the 2025 Toyota GR Supra arrives in U.S. dealerships this fall with a starting price of $56,250. This marks the end of the four-cylinder variant that was previously available.

While the base price sees an increase of $850, enthusiasts will rejoice at the continued presence of the manual transmission, a testament to Toyota’s commitment to driver engagement.

Both the 3.0 and 3.0 Premium trims offer the choice between an automatic and a manual gearbox. The 3.0 Premium starts at $59,400, slightly more expensive than its 2024 counterpart.

To sweeten the deal, all 2025 GR Supras will include a complimentary one-year membership to the National Auto Sport Association, granting access to discounted event tickets and a free high-performance driving experience.

Packing 382 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque from a turbocharged inline-six engine, the GR Supra promises thrilling rear-wheel-drive performance.

However, mastering the art of rev matching itself is crucial, especially in rear-wheel-drive cars where uncontrolled spins can result from mismatched engine and wheel speeds.

While a manual gearbox fosters a more connected driving experience, it can sacrifice efficiency compared to modern automatics.

The 2024 Mustang exemplifies this, with its automatic transmission achieving five mpg better than the manual. Even powerful V8s can be surprisingly economical.

The 2024 Mustang GT Fastback, for instance, manages a respectable 18 mpg with its 5.0-liter engine, offering a compelling alternative to the track-focused GR Supra 3.0 at a much lower price point.

The future of these sporty coupes is unclear. While the Mustang appears to have a secure future, rumors suggest the GR Supra might be discontinued alongside the BMW Z4 in 2026.

The arrival of the highly anticipated GRMN Supra also remains a mystery, leaving enthusiasts to wonder if it will materialize in 2025 or beyond.
