Nice Car To Restore And Drive!!! — Inline six 3 liter, nice torque and smooth power. However the car is a bit heavy and that makes acceleration and speed slower.

Pros: Cool styling, pop up headlamps, few similar cars on the road, fairly reliable drivetrain.

Cons: Eats fuel (especially with sport clutch), parts getting hard to get.

Drift — Interior kinda slack but functional, roomy back seats for a 2 door sports car. Bad ass front seats..

Pros: handles amazing. looks good. Rides like a magic carpet. Well built.

Cons: Could be a little faster. pop up headlights

Fun, Late-80s Sports Car — this is a pretty fun little car. actually, i shoudn't say little, because despite the physical size, the car is a fatty. in any case, it handles quite well due to the toyota TEMS electronic modulated suspension. the engine is well-mated, providing enough horsepower, especially when boost kicks in, to motivate the car. it's a bit unfortunate that we didn't get the twin-turbo version here in the states. it's a good option for thise who can't get their hands on the MK-IV supra but still want toyota power and reliability.

Pros: strong engine; well-engineered; comfortable; targa top is awesome to open and look at the sky, while not being dated like t-tops; huge aftermarket

Cons: very heavy for it's relative size; well-known head gasket issues which are easy to fix but really shouldn't be a problem to begin with; pop-up headlights are evil when it comes to drag and certainly are just more moving parts to break; cycloptic rear taillight is just plain ugly. shame on you, toyota.

Awesome 80's Performance Vehicle! — I really enjoyed beating the hell out of this car for 10,000 miles! Blew one automatic transmission and the engine was registering low oil pressure eventually! This car needs an LS motor and a T-56!

Pros: Interior Quality, Creature Comforts, Suspension, Ride Quality

Cons: Engine notorious for throwing rods! Weak Auto Transmission!

Fun — I bought this car in the summer of 2005. It originally had the red interior, but i had a full grey interior from a previous supra I owned/wrecked. The gray interior is much nicer. I burned a valve before the winter of 06 and rebuilt from the head up after that. It was a fun project and has run bullet proof since then. Fun car to drive!!

Pros: Looks good, reliable (non turbo more so than turbo), fun.

Cons: Useless cupholders, acceleration if that's what you're looking for. I don't ever dog mine anymore so it being not extremely fast doesn't bother me.

Toyota Legend — Its cool, its sleek, mean and a classic -like the MKII Toyota proved that they could build a car with personality, and going 6,3 sec. from 0 to 60 made the MKIII a serious performer (stock!) -but whats really cool about the MKIII is the potential, with just a few tricks, youll get more power, the automatic gearbox allows up till 350-400 ponies so you dont have to change the whole car -its build for perfomance, and I havent even mentioned the feeling of tearing down the autostrada with the top down...

Pros: japanese reliabilty -in a power package

Cons: tire bills- speeding tickets -addictive

80's Jap-rocket! — The Supra was a small revolution when it arrived on the scene in the mid 80's. Not since the Toyota Crowns, Celicas ( lets not forget 2000GT ) japanese cars had a very thin personality -most people looked upon them as transportation -and compared to European and American marquees they didnt have any glorious legacy to boast. the Toyota 2000 GT debuted in a James Bond movie and the Datsun-Nissans 200ZX's paved the way in the late 70's The S upra Mk1 was constructed on the base of a 77 model Celica, it preluded what was to come, the MK2 got its own platform an onboard computer to regulate the fuel injection, and picked up massive sales in the USA. I have owned a MK2 and currently my MK3 is in for an overhaul -I love the Supra because its the cheapest and most reliable way to get most horsepower for my money, 6.3, 0-100km, stock, gives decent performance even by todays standards. And finally because its so easy to upgrade.

Pros: One of the few japanese cars with a soul

Sexy > > > Back — Well . . . it's my baby's car that I love and miss. It has Burgandy leather interior, tinted windows, blow-off valve, in-take filter, and some other stuff :)

Pros: Bucket seats for two

Cons: Not enough room in the back ;)

Toyota Supra Bpu By John

Classic, can't go wrong with this car, if you're single or not married yet. Think about it, add an intercooler, air intake, and put the boost up and you have ~450rwhp (NA version). Isn't that crazy?... Read More
