Manufactured between 1979 and 1999, the Supra has different
specs and options for different years. Before 1987, the
Supra came with a 2.6L, 2.8L, or 3.0L dual overhead cam
1987 saw the debut of the Supra Turbo
. A new era had been
born. Since its creation, the Supra had been a frontrunner
in performance and style, and it didn't go unnoticed.
In 1982, the Supra won Motor Trend's "Import Car Of The
Year," and in 1994 it was awarded Popular Mechanics "Design
& Engineering Awards."
During the 90's Toyota engineers
stepped up and redesigned the Supra for a new generation.
A major styling change came in 1993, when the Supra entered
the arena of the "supercar."
Performance was the new focus, and Toyota took painstaking
efforts to reduce weight and increase horsepower. The
result was a 320-horsepower vehicle that could go from
0-60 mph in under 5 seconds.
This was the highest level
of performance Toyota had ever achieved in one vehicle.
Unfortunately, the decrease in the high-performance car
market led to the discontinuation of the Supra in 1999.
