And it's coming to America.
It's a fact of life that vehicles age and require maintenance, no matter how good the original build quality. Toyota fully understands this and has recognized some owners, specifically those who drive and maintain sports cars, want OEM replacement parts instead of resorting to junkyards or aftermarket suppliers. That's why Toyota launched its GR Heritage Parts Project a while back and continues to add new items to the catalog. Previous generations of the Toyota Supra are the best examples and now A70 and A80 generation owners have additional replacement parts available.
Beginning July 1, Toyota will begin offering replacement parts for both Supra generations, including a clutch master cylinder, release cylinder, brake hose, and air conditioner control panel knob for A70 drivers.
Replacement front and rear emblems, side moldings, front door garnish, and a front suspension lower arm brush will arrive in August. As for the A80, an oxygen sensor replacement piece and a front bumper cover are coming in July and August, respectively. Pricing was not provided for any of these parts but all will be available for purchase at dealers, though they'll be limited production. Once the production run ends for each part, only remaining stock will be available, so this is definitely a first-come, first-served affair.
Toyota says it'll provide updates on its Gazoo Racing website beginning next month with details like part numbers, production time periods, and availability dates.
In the past, Toyota offered A70 and A80 Supra replacement parts such as a propeller shaft, door handles, fuel sender gauge, and brake boosters. Chances are this catalog will continue to expand beyond today's announcement.
The A70 generation was in production from 1986 until 1992, and the A80 beginning in 1993 thru 2002. This means the oldest A70s are now 35-years-old and the first A80s are 28-years-old. Maintaining old cars, especially those that are driven on a regular basis, can be an expensive and timely endeavor but Toyota understands the importance of keeping icons like these up and running for decades to come.
