Poor-man’s Ferrari, Even In Standard Non-turbo Form —

Not many cars on the road can beat one of these off the line, even in the standard naturally-aspirated form. The 3 litre six puts out more horses than most Aussie V8’s of the era - combined with a good, tough transmission and limited slip diff, they’re very quick for a car that is over 20 years old. The turbo and twin turbo models aren’t for the feint hearted – as much for the wallet-shrivelling fuel consumption as the awesome speed. Very well equipped from the factory, electric gizmos are all there (including electric windows, mirrors, cruise, excellent air-con, even electric lumbar support!) they are very well built. Everything seems to work, forever. The doors, whilst they work fine, are tinny and make a terrible sound when the pillarless windows are wound down. After 300 000kms and only one head gasket (they’re well-regarded for blowing head gaskets) mine still doesn’t use any oil. The key seems to be to use the power and send the needle right around the tacho a few times a week. It thrives on being driven hard. The suspension is sophisticated and provides a great deal of the car’s massive (for it’s proportions) 1700kg weight – but don’t expect it to be comfortable. This is a sports car, and it thumps and bumps over potholes and ridges ion the road like one. Handling, however, is spectacular – with minimal body-roll and no understeer. Oversteer is the killer, but is only ever induced by ridiculous speeds going into corners – not recommended! The flailing tail end is hard to catch. Fuel consumption is what you’d expect from 3 litres and six cylinders, and it responds reasonably well to economy runs – but that’s no fun. I tried to thrash mine to death, but all it did was cost me more in fuel! Highly recommended.

Pros: Reliable, bullet-proof, fast.  Excellent handling.  Very tunable.

Cons: Not a comfy ride.  Heavy.  Fuel consumption with today's prices.

Best Car I've Ever Driven!!!!!!! — I am getting ready to sell my Supra but it's been the best car I've ever driven. I took it up to 147 MPH one time and will never forget it. Power everything, acceleration any time you need it. What more could you ask for.

Owner for 6 years, 6 months

Miles Driven per Year:20,000

Pros: Way too many to list!!!

Cons: Nothing!!!

Amazing — The steering is very tight and very precise. The comfort in this 22 year old car is astounding. The engine is very stable if maintained properly and should easily take all the beating you throw at it. The braking is decent but upgraded brakes are a must for high speed applications. Speed and acceleration is dependant on the amount of mods you invest in. It can quite easily be turned into a very fast ride. The handing during high speed session (240+) is amazing, the car sits firmly on the ground and wind does not affect it at all. You basicly do not feel how fast you are driving. The car gives a sense of security due to its size and stability. The comfort of driving this car make it hard for you to get out of it. The electronics and gadgets are in abdunance, Air-Con, Cruise Controll, electric mirrors, electric heated mirrors, ABS, Servo, Electric seats, heated seats. The fuel consumption varies from 3,5 km/l to 12,12 km/l. Average 10 km/l mixed driving. This translates to 28,6L/100km to 8,25L/100km 10L/100km

Pros: Fast, reliable, comfortable, built quality

Cons: Fuel consumption, price of spareparts
