Pros

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.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Fast Car Coupled With Good Looks — The 1985 supra was in my opinion, a very behaved and overall good car. Until you put your foot into it, that is. at that point everything becomes relative. This car handles corners with ease. corners labeled 45 mph can easily be taken at 55-60 or more if there is a bank. While the stock power is respectable for an eighties vehicle, it leaves a little to desire. However i got a 20 year old one with 169,000 miles up to the 130 mph end of the speedometer. i dont recommend doing this, as the rpm's in 5th gear were a little over the 6500 redline. But overall, these are well built cars that are extremely well built.

Pros

Handling is great for its age, strong motor, straight six and good on gas, it's a toyota so it has good engine parts that last a while.

Cons

The head gaskets are usually the problem with the supra line, and clutches tend to stick (depending on how you drive it) small back seat isn't accomedating for more than two people.

Great Car — They mid eighties supra was in many ways advanced before it's time. digital dash, comfy seats, adjustable in many ways, and accomedating for all sizes of people, if you weren't over 6'7. Though its not exactly a car to be used for a night of cruising with five people, it is a nice car none the less.

Great Fun To Drive With Unbeatable Reliability — With the famous high compression in-line 6 cylinder engine and a manual transmission you can't help but have fun when driving this era supra. While it doesn't have the top-end speed of some more expensive sports cars, it has never mattered to me, the quick acceleration and tight cornering coupled with the P-Type seats make it fun and fast. In 23 years and 130+K miles the car has only let me down once and that was when it was new an electronic component related to the starter died after that NOTHING ever failed.

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.

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.
