So i'm on my way home yesterday night from the movies and a orange supra 93-02 body style pulls up next to me in my bolt ss/sc. It looked real nice. He starts reving it up and jumping back in forth on me. Hes looking over at me smieling and keeps looking over at his nice looking girl in the passenger seat. He then rolls down his window and actually says to me "want to get your ass handed to you by a real car" and looks over laughing with his girl. We finally hit a light and we both take off. I figured I would get slaughtered but I start leaving him rather baddly and I finally let off at around 100 where I have pulled 2 or 3 cars on him. I wonder what excuses he told his girl? Later I find out through one of my friends the kids supra isnt turbo charged, the engine is bone stock and an automatic. All he did to it was paint it orange and put rims on it to look like the supra in fast and the furius 1 and I guess he thinks that makes him fast. How pathetic is that? Have you all ever had something like this happen before?

Your gearing really sucks if you can only get to 80 before you have to shift to 4th. I can get to 90/95 before I have to shift. I haven't done anything special to my car either. Only have CAI plus appearance mods. Sorry, not trying to be a dick, just stating fact.

i'm pretty sure they had the boxxy look to them until 93...in 94 they changed to the last gen style, which they kept, until the late 90's (98 maybe 99) when they then CEASED to exist


someone give me real factual information, i'm not gonna verify it with anything solid, eF research and google

That sounds about right. I started selling Toyota right out of high school in 98 and remember talking about how the Supra was at an end. I think 98/99 was the end of it. My dealership never had one on the lot. Probably because nobody was buying it and all the rage was about the new V8 that was introduced in the Land Cruiser.

Can't wait to see the new Supra I've been hearing about. I heard a rumor that it is supposed to have a v8.

Yah I heard about the v8 also but I hope they come out with another v6 turbo for it. Thats what made the supra great.

nope, no V8 or V10 its a twin turbo 6 or single turbo 6 , or n/a 6 all running the 3800 motor just newer, and the new GT-R is going to run the inline 6TT very much like the RB26DETT motor

Thats going to be a graet car if they do the 6 turbo charged again. Is it still going to be rear wheel? Has anyone heard any price margins yet?

Oh and by the way they did have that body style supra from 93-02 they may have tweeked a couple little things on it but overall it was the same body.

yea the new body supra started in 93 like rben said... The supra, skyline, and rx7 stopped production in 2002.. All 3 were very nice cars, shouldnt have stopped producing them..

Yah 65k is way to much. Hopefully they will get into the 35k range. That would be great if they could. I might have to trade in the ss/sc for one if its around 35k.
