Toyota 2000GT


Toyota Supra was a continuation of a 2000GT heritage presented years earlier. The first three generations of Supra were offered with a direct descendant to the 2000GT's M engine. Toyota introduced the Celica Supra (MA46) in 1979. Its styling was based upon the Celica liftback design, but it was both longer and wider. However, it was the engine that made the Supra stand apart from the Celica. The Supra's 4ME 2.6-liter inline-6 engine was the first Toyota production engine to be equipped with electronic fuel injection. The Supra was available with both a manual and automatic transmission, and came standard with 4-wheel-independent suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes. Except for the addition of luxury items such as optional leather seating and automatic climate-control, the Supra remained unchanged until 1981. In that year, Supra (MA47) was given a 5ME 2.8-liter single overhead cam engine, a revised 4-speed automatic transmission and final drive gearing, and was optionally available with a new Sport Suspension package.

In 1982 a complete redesign of the Supra (MA61) happened again. Now available as two distinct models, L-type and Performance, Supra also received another engine upgrade. The new 5M-GE engine still displaced 2.8 liters, but now sported double overhead cams. Both the L-type and Performance package vehicles were mechanically identical, with differences limited to fender flares, wider wheels and tires, and a sport interior on the Performance package. Slight changes on the 1984 models were limited to minor engine modifications on the manual transmission-equipped vehicles (higher compression ratio and larger diameter intake).

Toyota Supra Generations

The next major change was 1986.5 when the 3rd generation Supra (MA70) was finally given its own identity. No longer part of the Celica line, the 1986.5 Supra was equipped with a 3.0 liter DOHC engine and retained the four-wheel disc brakes and all-independent suspension of its predecessors. In 1987, Supra (MA71) received a turbocharged engine producing 230 horsepower and 245 lb/ft of torque. It was the first Toyota model to be available with both a turbocharged engine and anti-lock brakes. The 1987 Supras were available with an optional targa-type removable Sport Roof for open-air driving. The Turbo-A was Toyota's evolution model for Group A touring car championships all over the world which required a minimum of 500 which were only sold in Japan and was produced between August and September of 1988. Differences between the standard Supra and the Turbo-A model were both cosmetic and mechanical. The front nose features a cooling duct, the badging 'turboA' and a Black paint job (all 500 are black). The engine bay houses a 267 bhp 7M-GTEU. All Turbo-As also came standard with leather interior. Minor styling updates and equipment options happened 1989-1992, power increased to 232 hp and 254 ft/lb, mainly due to intake manifold redesign and ECU updates. The mkIII Supra was also available in two non-export models in Japan, the 2.0 L 210 hp twin-turbo 1G-GTE, and with a JZA70 with a 2.5 L 280 hp twin-turbo 1JZ-GTE, known as 2.5GT Twin Turbo (JZA70). A special light weight version of the 1JZ-GTE equipped JZA70, the 2.5 Twin Turbo R, had black/grey Recaro seats, a Torsen differential, Bilstein suspension and upgraded springs, larger sway bars, Momo steering wheel and gear knob and matching interior trim. This was the fastest factory production version of the MK3 Supra, running a mid 14 second 1/4 mile.

The year 1993 was when next major change occurred, with the Supra (JZA80) entering the category of "supercars." Available in both Turbo and non-Turbo version, the new Supra was part of a performance breed. Many weight saving measures were employed: Toyota equipped the vehicle with hollow carpet fibers and made the rear spoiler (optional on Turbo models) hollow. With 320-horsepower, the vehicle was capable of 0-100 km/h runs in under 5 seconds, and an electronically-limited top speed of 300 km/h. This was the highest level of performance Toyota had ever placed in one vehicle. In 1997 Supras were sold as Limited Edition 15th Anniversary models after receiving additional frame strengthening and sound-deadening material.

Due to the ever rising prices causing a decline in the high-performance vehicle sales, Motomachi Plant in Toyota City, Japan, ceased the production of Supras in 2002. You can still get low cost Toyota Supra OEM & aftermarket accessories for your car. You don't have to worry about outdated parts if your Supra needs repairs.

Is there ever going to be a fifth generation of the Supra? Various reports have been announcing the coming of a mkV Supra first in 2006, then in 2008 (predicted to be powered by a naturally aspirated 3.5 liter V-6 2GR-FSE from GS350 Lexus, all-aluminum powerplant and expected to produce 350bhp at 7000 rpm and about 290 lb-ft of torque at 5000, curb weight of about 3200 lb), and more recently the 2010 production year model rumored to come with the choice of a 450 hp V8 or a 3.7-liter 350hp V6 and pricing ranging from $40,000 to $50,000. For now we have to just wait and see...

As of August 2008 The Supra revival has been halted due to high mpg requirements, allowing Toyota to focus on its RWD coupe, jointly developed by Subaru. And then, there is still the Lexus LF-A car in the works...



1986.5 Toyota Supra

The third generation Supra was introduced in 1986.5 as a free standing model, officially separating it from the Celica. Whereas the Celica became a front wheel drive sport coupe, the Supra retained its image as a rear-wheel drive sports/GT car. The new Supra would continue to move upscale and become a showcase for Toyota technology. Originally slated as a 1986 model, production delays caused the model to actually be introduced mid year (hence the 1986.5 designation). The all new Supra was powered by a 3.0 liter DOHC inline six cylinder engine rated at 200 bhp. Notable features included an electronically controlled independent suspension (called the Toyota Electronic Modulated Suspension - TEMS), and a removable Sport-Roof panel (Targa top).
Production: 33,283
Engines: 3.0 I6 200 bhp.

1987 Toyota Supra

The Turbo model also included an engine oil cooler and integrated rear spoiler. The sports package, which was standard on the Turbo and optional on the base model, included a limited slip differential (LSD), TEMS, and headlamp wahers. A new Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) was optional on both models.

1993 Toyota Supra

The fourth generation Supra was introduced in 1993 and firmly established the Supra as a true performance car. The standard engine was a 3.0 liter I6 rated at 220 bhp - almost the same as the previous generation's turbo charged engine. The Turbo model added twin-turbos to produce a startling 320 bhp, the most powerful engine offered in the U.S. by any volume import manufacturer at the time. The Supra also featured new softly rounded styling and a more compact look wrapped around a 2+2 body style (though only children or small pets could ever fit in the back seat). The turbo model featured an optional, and outrageously high, spoiler that almost reached the height of the roof. Anti-lock brakes and dual air bags were standard on both models. The Turbo model also featured standard traction control and a 6-speed manual transmission.
Production: 2,901
Engines: 3.0 I6 220 bhp @ 5800 rpm, 210 lb-ft @ 4800 rpm. 3.0 I6 Turbo 320 bhp.

1994 Toyota Supra

Production: 2,266
Engines: 3.0 I6 220 bhp @ 5800 rpm, 210 lb-ft @ 4800 rpm. 3.0 I6 Turbo 320 bhp.

1996 Toyota Supra

The big news was the elimination of the 6-speed manual transmission from the Supra turbo. Toyota was not able to get certification for the transmission in time to meet new on-board diagnostic system requirements for emission controls.
Production: 852
Engines: 3.0 I6 220 bhp @ 5800 rpm, 210 lb-ft @ 4800 rpm. 3.0 I6 Turbo 320 bhp.

1997 Toyota Supra

The 6-speed transmission returned for the Turbo only. All Supra's were designated 15th Anniversary Edition, even though technically, it was the 18th edition (1979-1997). The big news was that Toyota cut Supra prices across the board by about $10,000. Thus, a 6-speed manual Supra Turbo cost just $39,900 while a Supra Turbo automatic cost $50,400 just the year before.
Production: 1,379
Engines: 3.0 I6 220 bhp @ 5800 rpm, 210 lb-ft @ 4800 rpm. 3.0 I6 Turbo 320 bhp.

1998 Toyota Supra

The Supra underwent a few minor changes for 1998. The exterior remained the same, except for the removal of the Anniversary emblems on the front fenders. Inside, a new 3-spoke steering wheel replaced the previous 4-spoke wheel, the cloth sport seats had a bolder design, and the radio was redesigned. The Naturally Aspirated I6 got Variable Valve Technology with Intelligence (VVT-i), which lead to an increase of 5 bhp and 10 lb-ft over the year before. The Twin Turbo I6 remained unchanged. The 5-speed manual transmission was dropped, even though the 6-speed manual was still available only on the Twin Turbo. Therefore, the base model was only available with an automatic. Faced with declining sales for Japanese super cars, this would be the last year that the Supra would be sold in the U.S.
Production: 1,232
Engines: 3.0 I6 225 bhp @ 6000 rpm, 220 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm. 3.0 I6 Turbo 320 bhp.
