Have you seen our new series on YouTube? Here is a great chance to take a peek.
It’s the season for testing, and we just got back from the 2022 Texas Auto Writers Association Texas Auto Roundup that was held this year at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. The team at Toyota came to win with the gorgeous 2022 GR Supra 3.0 for journalists to get acquainted with, get behind the wheel of and share the stories they discovered with it.
Already a fan favorite at DallasSingleMom.com, the Toyota GR Supra is one of those cars that almost begs to driven. The light catches it, and it reminds you of the pleasures of driving and the connection between driver and vehicle.
A CAR CONVERSATION
For this edition, we had the pleasure of chatting and driving with Toyota’s Frank Eckert about the performance, experience and drive of the GR Supra 3.0 Premium.
