    Texas supra Facebook page. I have a screen grab but it’s not uploading.

    The point was made to Toyota from members (not me) that companies like Nissan have a heritage parts dept and Tada said he would raise it with the company. Seems he may have kept his word on this...

    Hopefully this also means that they will stop discontinuing parts. I can't help but wonder if they are trying to placate current owners after the reaction to the Zupr4? The petition last year (?) didn't gain any traction despite the amount of signatures and being in direct contact with the head of Toyota UK and USA.

    It will probably have an impact on the secondhand part prices if it comes to fruition.

    In addition to the press, the venue will be different from the usual press release that owners of the old model A70 and A80 are invited. A lot of images talked about Supra's view of the world and its passion for development, and the launch of GR Supra was announced.
    Major topics related to the new model are announced, such as the resumption of orders for the top grade, which had already been filled with order reservations, and for which orders could not be received, and the announcement of 24 limited cars with Toyota's first matte coating. We also announce the launch of the part reprint activity "GR Heritage Parts Project" for A70 and A80 owners. Although specific parts names were not announced yet, big applause arose from the successive generation model owners who gathered.

    Hopefully we will see what it means in reality soon. I have a feeling if they restart discontinued parts that they will resume the previous prices. As an example, the discontinued new stock exhaust I have was last listed at over £1,000. Also, parts like the V160 that were made by Getrag may not be included...

    I remember the petition but I was refering to direct lobbying of Tetsuo Tada at the owners event last year where the point seemed to register with him. Enough people in enough places were all wanting it.

    They will be doing well to match companies like Porsche and Land Rover, where you can still get virtually any part for any car from them.

    What parts have Nissan remade for the GTRs through their heritage programme?
    I cannot imagine toyota making every single part again, we will have to wait for the official parts list to be issued.

    Nissan seem to be producing a fair amount of parts in their heritage line, including full RB engines if I remember reading correctly.
