Will Leave Rice Burners Behind...... — These Supras were built for speed and agility, not daily driving, with available 290 horse from the factory, who cares if the cops cant keep up with you on the thruway?

I'd Get Another One In A Heartbeat — the performance of this car is amazing considering when it was made and whats under the hood. it has only a 2.8L I-6 that makes roughly 170hp, its RWD, stick shift, and has independent rear suspension. it is a fairly fast car and handles like a dream. also you can get around 18-19 mpg combined city/highway.

It Has A Lot Of Faults As A Performance Car But I Love It Anyway! — The ultimate in 80's Japanese styling before they went all mainstream on us and started making fleets of jellybeans. Performance is disappointing when compared to even the most mundane vehicles today but driving this car is all about the looks and the fun of RWD with no electronic nannies to get in the way of the fun.

Fun and fast with Toyota reliability and persistence.

Cons

Supras were plagued with issues. Maintain it, they won't happen.

This Car Was Awesome And It Had The Potential To Last Forever If It Was Maintained Properly. — I loved this car. This model and year was a very good one, especially seeing as how the Supra name was very new. My particular one was very beat up, but despite this, much of the performance remained along with the stability and attractiveness. Albeit this car was an '85, it was still faster than many of the cars in my town, even with a warped cylinder head. The seats were my favorite. The driver bucket was fully adjustable for just about any situation and conformed to the body easily. Mine in particular was costly to own, but that had to do with a lack of maintenance and respect from the previous owner. Above all though, this car was fun. It was exhilarating to hit the gas and feel yourself get pushed back into the seat in one smooth motion.

Amazingly Fun To Drive — the 5 speed close ratio tranny is amazing! The limited slip diffrential really puts those horses to the ground.... with the mass air flow modif, you can get 25 hp extra! it's worth the few $$$ of gas the original sound system sucks!

Impressive For Its Year All Around, Just Dosent Have Enough Balls — Needs 2jz. that is all. Car is difficult to mod because of the lack of aftermarket support, it takes more time and is generally more expensive for performance parts, but worth every penny. Toyota doesn't make cars like this anymore.

Love It Will Get One Again — whatever you are looking for in a sport car you will find it in the SUPRA, you wont know till you have the experince! I love this car!

It handles curves like a dream. about seats they are very very very comfortable, Ima looking for one if you got one let me know!!
