A Car For People Who Know Having Three Pedals Is The Only Way To Go. — The best thing to come out of the eighties, automotively. Not a barnstormer on the drag strip, but it's perfectly balanced. Things that came from the factory: a limited slip differential, 4-wheel discs, a close-ratio five speed mated to a 4.30:1 final drive, and a gorgeous inline six-- does it get any better?

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

Pros: It's more fun to drive than your 2009 Civic Si.

Cons: Rust is a problem. Also, if the valve stem oil seals haven't crapped out yet, they will. Trust me.

Love It — Overall the car was amazing. Even though mine had over 200,000 miles I was still blowing civics and caveliers out of the water. I loved having RWD. The car shifted smooth, looked gorgeous, was dependable as hell, never had any problems with her. Its a shame she's a cube in the scrapyard now :(

Pros: RWD, dependable, good performance

Cons: hard to find parts, I don't own one any longer

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.

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.

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.

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?

Pros: Good structure, nice interior

Cons: Heavy, but still good for drifting.

A Great Performing Car For All Around Driving. — I got this car for 2 reasons. 1. because I've always been a fan of the styling. 2. Because I wanted something that had more power than the little 4 banger that I had before, but wanted better gas milage than the big Oldsmobile that I had after that. It's a happy mix between the two.

Pros: Great styling, decent gas milage, fun to drive, and you don't see them every day.

Cons: Some parts are getting to be REALLY hard to get, Some of the parts that are available are
not always the cheapest. Rather low horsepower compared to many cars of today.

1. Love — I was about 17 years old, when my farther got one of theese, it came in bronzemetallic -with the "black in the middle" wheels. I was stunned, imagine this: I lived in what you would call "Hicskville" where Opel kadets, Citroen 2CV's, WW's beetles and Ford Taunus where rulers... My Granparents bought the first Toyota in 1967 (a british racing green Crown ) Dad got the firts Celica St in 77, then a Corolla DOCH around 82 -and then the Supra! -many years later, I got my hands on a black 85' Supra -with about 200.000 on the odo,took a drive from Denmark to Paris France and back again without a squeak! and I floored it all the way from Normadie in France ( about 19.00 ) and returned the next day around 13.30 in Denmark (CPH) including the odd coffebreak/mens room.

Pros: The first true japanese vintage car of the 80's  that could match its European and US counterparts.

Cons: are you kidding?

Awsome Japenese Muscle! — I find the 1985 toyota supra to be a fine example of Japanese craftsmanship. Although it's top end isnt all there, the torque is there to replace it. A great all round car for tight turns, thanks to the independent rear and all round disk brakes. The interior was designed very well. The many diffrent seat adjustments can be set comfortably for any type of driving.I also find the heater to work very well as for the ac. AWsome Ride!!!

Fantastic — 2.8litre straight 6. 0-60 in about 8 seconds (does weigh just shy of 2 tons). Top speed, don't know, although told would cruise at 135mph no bother! Built like a tank. Way ahead of it's time, on-board computer, digital dash, air con, electric everything.

Pros: looks great, handles and drives well

Cons: bit hard to find parts these days!
