1988 Toyota Supra Overview

The 1988 Toyota Supra changed very little from the previous year. The Supra Turbo-A was introduced this year. This extremely limited edition, with 267 horses, was designed to compete in Group-A touring car championships. Only 500 were made.

The 1988 Toyota Supra came available with two engine options: the 2.8-liter, 200-horsepower or the turbo-charged 230 horsepower engine. It only came in one body style, the liftback. Fuel economy was about 17 to 23 miles per gallon.

Drivers love the looks and performance of the 1988 Supra. It is a popular car for racing, with many owners adding their own customized modifications. Some drivers complain about the tiny backseat, rust issues, and the car’s heavy weight.
