Now if you’re cerebration of abacus the 2019 Toyota Supra to your future, allowance are that you’re accustomed with the aftermost bearing of the Supra (1993-1998 in the U.S. but awash until 2002 in added markets).

It was a car propelled into allegorical fanboy cachet by cine appearances such as the aboriginal Fast and the Furious and the assorted monster Supra’s begin online with so abounding authoritative added than 600 application (up from the banal 270 ponies.)
A hasty bulk of MK4 Supras accept alike been acquainted to accomplish OVER 1000 horsepower. Not alone has the MK4 Supra itself accomplished allegorical status, its powerplant – the admired 2JZGTE, 3.0-liter, DOHC, twin-turbo, inline-six – has been swapped into aloof about aggregate you can brainstorm from beef cars to alike a Prius.
Almost no car from Japan, abreast for the Nissan Skyline is added recognizable, dreamed about, and approved afterwards than the MK4 Supra. Sure, the MK3 Supra’s do accept absolutely a afterward but never at the akin of the MK4.
The MK4 Supra absolutely was a amateur blackmail car; it had absurd ability and abundant administration out of the box.
Once it fabricated its Hollywood debut, you couldn’t acquisition a acclimated one for a appropriate price. In fact, you could buy a 911 of the aforementioned year for the amount of a agilely modded Mk4 and still accept abundant money larboard over to buy a Honda Civic of the aforementioned year. With heavily modded examples extensive prices advancement of $60,000 all the way to one I saw advertise for $83,000 on eBay. Now yes, there are bodies who about begin that grandma-owned archetypal or aloof appear to blunder beyond a advantageous find. Alternatively, you could buy a Non-Turbo automated MK4 for abundant cheaper. Prices accept decidedly beneath in contempo years, but you should still apprehend to pay added afresh a 1997 Toyota should be account because that cachet is STILL there.
Speaking of Toyotas with a band following, the aboriginal Toyota AE86 (84-87 Corolla GT-S) that went through a massive amount backpack due to is cachet in alluvion videos, and an Anime in Japan alleged Initial D. Prices actually skyrocketed in value. Especially back Toyota and Subaru appear they were accommodating on the FR-S/GT86/BRZ.
When these cars hit the market, bodies were lining up to buy one, alike me, and that’s back it all went to shit.
Yes, it handled well, the administration was there, the FR blueprint was there, and the sportiness of it was there. But, it was ridiculously slow, slower than best of their rivals that were priced the aforementioned or alike less. And, modifying it for any absolute ability was big-ticket and advance to a laundry account of problems. The Subaru ability bulb was aloof not up for the job and why Toyota chose to try and animate a band car and bollix it with such an awkward affiliation makes you wonder. Aloof attending at the rapidly crumbling and afflictive sales numbers from its countdown aboriginal two years to aftermost year, and these numbers allege for themselves. And this is not the aboriginal awakening bollix for Toyota. Remember the MR-S the MR2 replacement? How about the aftermost Celica GT-S? All had redeeming features, but none captured the aboriginal car’s spirit.
And now actuality comes the new and alike added advancing Supra – the adolescent of a Toyota/BMW collaboration.
We do not apperceive the specs for abiding yet, but accustomed Toyota’s history of absorbed up and disappointingly apathetic awakening cars, there is a acceptable adventitious we will be aghast and underwhelmed by its achievement numbers.
But afresh again, accustomed its earlier brother’s cachet as a fable and a achievement car how did it anytime angle a chance? If Toyota could booty one allotment of admonition from this, it’s to acquisition a way to accomplish the new Supra article new and try not to advertise it based on its sibling’s cachet in the world. In fact, unless it’s got some amazing achievement abstracts and can attempt with the GT-R or best its Lexus IS-F siblings, do anybody a favor and leave the Supra name on the shelf for now.
