Supra Blue — This was The Car for 1997, nice, reliable, and fun to drive. but when it brakes down you better have a back up plan cause parts for this car more likely have to be order, and parts can be expensive

Most Impressive Dream Car Ever Built. — This is the most fun you will have driving. The raw power of the engine will throw you back into your seat. These are rare and iconic sports cars that should be pampered. Toyota knows how to build a great lasting car that will surpass all your expectations.

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

Pros

Great ride, handling, brakes, sound, great stereo, very reliable, quality construction, Looks new after 16 years! People stop me and ask if I want to sell the car or if it is really a Twin Turbo Supra.

Cons

Good Handling, Nice Highway Commuter — Handling - good to learn how to properly drive, Brake - If you got original 4 pod brake, no need for upgrading system. Just change the brake pad, and you are good to go! It is fun to drive, would've been nicer if it came out a bit lighter.

Pros

all around balanced car. gearbox powershifts with little effort, twin plate clutch is perfection

Cons

turbo lag but when you redline at 9500 who cares if you don't get full boost til 4500.

Monster Tuner — The car i drove had numerous BPU's, the handling was perfect and balance feels like a perfect 50/50 even though it isn't, the 3.4l 2jz with a t67 and 4" piping simply has a war cry like nothing else. acceleration is neck braking and braking matches.
