Pros

Beautiful looking car for the time with great handing for the weight. Actually it was good to drive without considering engine failure.

Cons

Worse car I ever owned. Everything fell apart piece by piece especially after warranty. First ($1.00) door stops fell apart, then climate control shorted, then electrical switches all shorted at contacts.
Worse part is Turbo engine blew up at 40k and had NO Warranty.
Toyota sold ALL SUPRA TURBOS 1987-92 with defective Head Gaskets that would self destruct with Turbo heat. They wanted over $10,000 to repair engine at 41k but it wasn't worth it to me. Toyota of Japan refused any letters of complaint since they knew it was happening. NO Recall or anything. Worst car I ever owned for $31,000!

Japanese Disaster Car — Like I said below Toyota has NO INTEGRITY when it comes to customers. When the engine was run for years at certain speeds it simply Lost its Head Gasket position causing the engine to overheat and destruct by warping everything. I was told countless times this defect was inherent in the car and happened In and Out of Warranty usually more than once. They kept producing the same defective engine for 7 long years with No recall ever. Considering all the other problems too it was the worst car I ever owned and will never buy Toyota again.

I Think This Not Gonna Be The Last Supra Ill Own For Sure — its a sleeper i dont tell my secretes but yet an inline 6 will deliver the right amount of power and performance if you know what your doing... plus 4 baggers got old you always are gonna end up wanting more i want a car that scares me.. so i dont try to push the limits anymore...

Fast And Fun — For a 21 year old luxury sports car, its a fast and fun car to drive. The performance is great compared to many newer cars and it can out-handle most performance cars today. Its a lot of fun to drive.

If I Had The Money I Would Definitely Get Another One — awesome performance, damn good braking, handled amzing through the turns, it was definitely a sleeper, i put it through hell every time i drove it, it had decent gas mileage for what it was, paint was fading, and motor was really strong

If You Want Something Fast And Reliable, Get One! But Expect To Spend A Lot On Fuel!!! — This car is really fun to drive! Performance is good for an 80s Sports car, but it is very heavy. The Turbo makes it very quick from a roll, handling is very good, and the brakes are very grippy. It is very long, so you have to make sure that there is plenty of room when you merge. Exterior / Mechanical build quality is excellent, but the interior could use some work. The back seat is really only good for small children, although a small adult will fit. Gas is expensive! It requires premium, and only gets about 20MPG combined. The large tank allows about 350 miles per fuel up, but filling it is expensive!!!

20 Years Old And Still Looks Like Brand New. — With the top down my 1987 Supra is still a chick magnet. Love driving up the Southern California's Coast or out to the desert. Even with 142,000 miles on it this car will still do 140 mph smoothly and gets great gas mileage. I get 350 miles with a full tank of gas. The seats are comfortable and the adjustable lumbar support makes long drives more comfortable. My Supra is in excellent condition and still has its origional paint job. Looks like it just came of the showroom floor.

Schweet — This blue little devil is super fast. Hauling 380+rwhp! This car is a real head-turner. has less than 2k on the rebuild. and 0 miles on the transmission. brand new rebuilt. this car is beautiful. I think everyone should get one of these. they are collector cars!!!!!
