Toyota's greatest achievement, the Supra remains one of the hottest and most beloved import sports cars of all time.
Beginning life in 1981, the Supra was born as the Celica Supra: a high performance and sportier derivative of Toyota's Celica liftback. It contined to share the Celica name until 1986.5, when the name split and Supra became a car of it's own.
Along with cosmetic re-designing and a new chassis, the 1986 Supra was equiped with Toyota's 7mge engine, producing about 200hp. But in 1987, the Supra turbo hit the streets, with Toyota's 230hp 7mgte. Options available were TEMS suspension system, a limited slip differential and headlight washers. Also available was a sunroof option or removable targa top.
1989 saw the arrival of the Supra GT, with the twin turbo 1ggte engine, however lower hp ratings due to a smaller displacement.
May 1993 was the date of Toyota's newly re-designed Supra, combining power and luxury. Early models were equiped with 1jzge or 1jzgte engines, but it was the 2jz that imortalized Supra's title as the most powerful stock import sports cars to ever be sold in the US. At 320 hp, it's top speed was governed at 155 mhp...however earlier track tests prior to it's release had the Supra running at speeds excess of 180 mhp.
1998 was the last year for the Supra in the US, due to the increasing demand for SUVs instead of sports cars.
Supra belongs to the high end group of japanese sports cars, such as the Mazda RX-7, Mitsubishi 3000GT and the Nissan Skyline GTR. It is Supra and Skyline that are always competeing for the #1 ranking, however neither one can seem to out-do the other.
It is rumored that Supra is scheduled for return...
"That damn Supra just raped that Honda on the 1000km run." or "Holy shit! That Supra just flattened my dog!"

People who drive them get SUPRA on their jerseys and will get laughed at when they rap it round a pole and end up with a Volvo. Why not save yourself the hassle and get Volvo on your back.
They look better in any colour other than black.

The Supra is yet another product from Japan's Toyota. Toyota also produces the Prius, Corolla, and Celica. None of which have more than 180 horsepower. The Supra was made popular by the movie, The Fast And The Furious, and the video game, Gran Turismo 3. Very few people would know what a Supra is, other than a condom made by Trojan, if not for those two infulences. The Supra is likely one of the most over rated cars ever. Second only to the Nissan Skyline.
