1990 Toyota Supra Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

Drive the car and if it makes a lot of gurgling sounds out of coolant overflow tank, the head gasket is leaking. Check under the oil cap for grey sludge. That means the rings are worn or coolant is getting into the oil. Look in the overflow tank for oil also. Its best if you are mechanically inclined as maintenance will be costly. Be ready, this car eats $100 bills and and just says more. After the mechanical issues are sorted, its a great car to drive. You can put your arm upright on the window sill without being cramped like in a newer FR-S or even a 93-98 Supra. Its got a lot of premium features, especially the turbo with the sports package. I have been driving the same Supra for 20 years. I can't find a car I like better. The down sides are that its a bit heavy (3,600 lbs) for the horse power and uses gas (premium) 16 - 23 MPG. At about 13 lbs per hp on a stock turbo, its a bit heavy. 10 lbs/hp or less would be ideal for a nimble sports car. Its more of a comfortable sporty touring than a track car unless you make costly modifications. Some of the lines of the car remind me of a Porsche 928 or a 1980s Laser / Daytona. Parts are getting harder to find.

1990 Toyota Supra 2dr Hatchback


Review

One of the nicest cars I've owned, rivaling my Lexus LS 430 in many areas and exceeding it in performance, fun-to-drive, and styling. No problems in 21 years and still looks and drives like new.
It has been called the best car Toyota ever made. I recall some car mag saying something like
"if you want performance and comfort, buy the Supra, otherwise the Porsche 928 will do." The car has gotten as high as 28/20 highway/city and averages 24/19. A head-turner still, it will carry 2 bicycles and camping gear for a 3-week trip. Is anyone looking for an 18,000-mile LS 430?


Best Features

Styling, comfort, performance, quality, gas mileage. multi-adjustable power seat, power lumbar, roominess, targa top, engine growl, visibility. Easy to own and drive. Sticks to the road.


Worst Features

Sound system.

1990 Toyota Supra Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

The mark 3 supra is an amazing performer for a small price.
personally, I use this car is a daily driver and weekend warrior (at the track). I have to say that I am very satisfied with not only the performance, but the level of comfort this vehicle offers. Pressing the gas pedal anywhere above 3000 rpm gives you a nice kick in the pants as the car begins to accelerate. The interior included such features as a 10 way electronically adjustable driver seat (including lumbar). If you buy the targa (sport roof) model, it is quite pleasant to remove on nice spring or summer days.


Best Features

My favorite feature would have to be the power. I have driven and owned many other cars such as a pontiac firebird transam... But none of those cars gave me the rush that this one does while accelerating to pass or just have some fun on the highway (of course within speed limits... wink wink)


Worst Features

As with any older sports car you may encounter some problems along the way stemming from abuse or wear during it's lifetime. My only wish is that I had a chance to buy it brand new. Even so... Awesome car.
