The Toyota Supra (Japanese: ト ヨ タ ・ ス ー プ ラ Toyota Sūpura?) Is a rear-wheel-drive, front-engine, longitudinally-mounted, front-engine, 3-door coupe sports car produced by the Japanese manufacturer Toyota from 1979 to present. There was a hiatus from 2002 until its reboot in 2019.
In May 1986, Toyota was ready to launch its next version of the Supra. The links between the Celica and Supra were severed, making it the first Supra to arrive as a standalone model; these two models were completely different. The Celica switched to front-wheel drive, while the Supra kept its rear-wheel drive. Although the first and second generation had similar designs, the engine had been updated with 2954 cm³ (3 liters) and 204 hp (201 HP; 150 kW), also with six cylinders in line, although it was only available with natural aspiration tuning in 1986. A turbo version of this same engine was introduced in 1987, providing 235 hp (232 HP; 173 kW). The Supra was mechanically related to the Toyota Soarer.
The third generation boasted even more aggressive styling and began to give way to the signature lines of the Supra, with a very pronounced C-pillar drop and removable top to give a similar look to the Porsche Targa. They continued to opt for the same transmissions as in past generations.
It was not long after that the first turbocharged Supra arrived with 230 PS (227 HP; 169 kW) and a maximum torque of 34 kg · m (333 N · m; 246 lb lbft), with only 5-speed manual transmission, to make way for an almost perfect story between forced induction and this car, which would become an icon.2
Its silhouette was dominated by rectilinear shapes with an aerodynamic coefficient of 0.32; it was very long and low, the front was quite lowered and the nose was very sharp.
Its chassis had double wishbone suspensions, which had parts made of aluminum to reduce weight; and it used disc brakes on all four wheels, ventilated the front in all finishes and the rear only in the highest. Later, other engine options included a 1998 cm³ (2 liters) of 162 hp (160 HP; 119 kW) in its atmospheric version and that came to yield up to 210 hp (207 HP; 154 kW) adding a biturbo for the market Japanese domestic.
Just four months later, the Toyota Supra Sport Roof would hit the market, a version with a targa-type roof that could be removed and stored in the trunk.
In 1988, the sports car received a minor update, which basically consisted of changes to the body and wider tires for the 3-liter versions, as well as a small increase in power for all mechanics. The most important thing was the appearance of the Supra 3.0 GT Turbo A, a series limited to only 500 units with a more sporty preparation.
In 1990, the first generation of the Supra ‘just’, as such received its second update, this one, loaded with news. On an aesthetic level, the color palette of the bodywork was increased and in the variants with widening kit, it matched the rest.
The cabin featured synthetic leather, Recaro seats, with a steering wheel and gear lever signed by Momo. Other extras were the sunroof and the improved audio system. Also the mechanical section was optimized. The dampers were Bilstein and a Torsen limited-slip differential was added and a 2492 cm³ (2.5 liter) biturbo was added to the engine range.
