Here’s what separates the A91 Edition from its lesser Supra kin
The 2021 Toyota GR Supra is better than ever thanks to its newly available four-cylinder engine and more powerful straight-six. Those in search of the most distinctive 2021 Supra, though, will only care about one model: the A91 Edition. Limited to 1,000 units, the A91 Edition adds a number of distinct touches to the Supra’s shapely exterior and driver-focused interior. Sadly, performance enhancements that weren’t already made to other 3.0-liter models aren’t part of the package.
On the plus side, the Supra A91 Edition comes exclusively with the model’s 382-hp turbocharged inline-six powerplant that pairs to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It also benefits from the six-cylinder Supra’s reworked underpinnings, which include revised damper tuning, additional bracing, enhancements to the power steering system, and more.
Arguably the most noticeable difference between the A91 Supra and its lesser kin is the limited-edition model’s rear lip spoiler. The carbon-fiber piece is an attractive-looking addition that nicely caps the coupe’s stubby rear end.
More controversial are the A91 Edition’s C-pillar stripes that look pulled from a late-model Dodge Challenger. While the model’s trim-exclusive blue hue (or Refraction in Toyota-speak) calls unneeded attention to the black graphics, the A91 Edition’s available black (or Nocturnal) paint color surely better conceals the decorations. Those who aren’t fans will be happy there aren’t more stripes elsewhere.
Back to Black
Complementing the special-edition A91 Supra’s carbon-fiber rear lip spoiler and black graphics are carbon-fiber mirror caps and matte-black wheels. All in, the A91 is a sinister-looking Supra.
Blue on Black
Changes to the A91 Edition’s insides are less dramatic. Still, Toyota saw fit to add contrasting blue stitching to the model’s black interior. Likewise, the trim includes a pair of black key holders with contrasting blue stitching, as well as a special trunk mat.
Pricing for the 2021 Toyota GR Supra and Supra A91 Edition are still under wraps. That said, we expect the A91 Edition to wear a sticker price north of $55,000 USD when it eventually reaches dealer lots. Whether the model’s styling enhancements and limited availability warrant paying the cost is a matter of personal opinion.
