Pros

Great car for the amount of money invested, I've never regretted buying my Supra twin turbo.

Cons

Only thing I hate is sometimes the attention the car gets. Every boy racer wants to come up and talk about the car, and tell me every single thing I already know about it ... it's funny, a lot of the conversations sound like I'm talking to a Supra Wikipedia with two legs and a head. It's kind of annoying. I wish people would just say "nice Supra, and ask a few questions". Unfortunately it's always a 20 minute lesson "to me" about everything they know about my car. Too funny ... at least it was in the beginning.

I Love My Supra Twin-turbo — The Supra is an all around great sports car. Handles nice, plenty of power and at the current power level, 420 hp is plenty of power my needs. It's very comfortable cruising around town, or on the highway. It doesn't decent on gas for a performance car and it's easy to maintain. It's not too hard on my wallet and 90% of the mechanical work is stuff I can handle at home in my garage. I really enjoy the Supra, probably one of the nicest and smartest car choices I've made in my life.

Basil — Not the greatest low end outta the 2j toyota has definatly made a beautiful car here and none the less even tho it lacks a bit of power its still fun as hell to drive. The handeling in these things is amazing for a fairly long wheel based car. Love it to death will definatly be sad when its time to le er go.

Best Of Its Time. — The supra is simply amazing. The performance if the car is simply amazing as it can handle just about everything u throw at it. If you get the turbo model of course. As for the looks. It's GREAT. Built and created in 1994 and still to this day looks better then many and people still break there necks and whip out there camera just to say they saw a supra in there life.

Toyout Supra — A real head turner, not a car for the faint hearted, great fun to drive, great acceleration, handling in the corners is amazing. Not the most economical car to run but still, great looking car with the right body kit and can be tuned up and over 1000 bhp if you have the money...!!!

Love It — The car is the best car i have ever owned. I love the custom features of this car and the power you can add on to it. Plus the custom body kits are amazing. The motor last forever and the car can handle being really pushed to the limit

Twin Turbo & 6 Speed

I Love It — For a car that was built in the mid 1990s it performs amazingly. The car is well put together and beautiful. Gas prices can be a little steep but Toyota's will last forever. What can I say the Supra is amazing to drive.

Ageless looks and quality. Global community of fans.

Cons

A little brash for some and you need to know what you're looking for.

Mkiv Supra — 170+ top end. 5 sec acceleration. Braking is rubbish if it's standard Japanese import. Handling is excellent if wheel size isn't messed with too much. Build and engineering quality is superb. Needs good servicing to keep it tip top. It's cost about £1500 in 18 months on a top service and tyres. MPG is 22 - 25 if not caned. It's a great GT car. Makes a pretty good drag car too.

Toyota Supra - A Great Classic. — Performance - Could do with upgrading the brakes but, hey they still work very well. It's not the quickest off the mark but it doesn't hang about either, open her up and hit 5500 rpm, woohoo...lol Build Quality - I can't fault it really. A nice quiet ride until i get the exhaust changed..lol, all the gadgets (electric everything and air con). Appearance - Interior is in good condition, could do with a little clean and a hoover. Exterior is ok, a few lttle trolley dings that i'd like to sort out, nothing major. Cost of ownership - It doesn't seemed to have had anything wrong with it yet, it's Japanese and it'll just keep going. Fuel economy is another matter. It costs about £70 to fill up and you only get about 200 miles to the tank, thats about 17 miles per gallon. Fun factor - Buy one. They're great fun as long as your carefull, can be a little unpredictable in the wet, arse end likes to step out...lol
