I purchased my Supra when it was 5 Years old. It is now 17 years old and I love it just as much today and I did on the day I drove it home. My car is slightly past BPU, but the key to increasing HP, is to also increase the things affected by the increase. (Brakes, Suspension, Fuel delivery, air intake). I only mention this to say in 1993.5, this car was world renowned for its performance. As a stock auto, it ruled! I have had many sports cars over the past 17 years, and none compares to the satisfaction I get when I drive my Supra.That includes my stock 500 BHP Exotic. I hope Toyota never brings out another model with the Supra name, let's celebrate their rule as "King of the road.
This car is by far one of the most entertaining cars I have owned. From the minute you sit in the drivers seat and everything just fits perfectly. The dash was clearly made for the drivers ease at mind. The exterior design was the pinnacle of its time and to this day makes it one of the most sought after sports cars. On the performance note, the car handles exceptionally well. The power that the N/A makes is plenty enough to get you around the mountains and the Turbo model is simply, fun. For the tuners out there, there are few better platforms. After all, how often to many platforms put out 800+ horsepower on stock internals? I will be buying another one soon!

Paid $42k for the new car in 1993.
Have added exhaust, racing springs,
after-market wheels, boost
controller/gauge, turbo timer. The
suspension is now too stiff for my
wife, who prefers we take her car
everywhere. I had the car painted '94
Admiral Blue (Chevy color) with a
Shelby-style silver stripe down the
center. I am approached at least a few
times a week by admirers. In 2002, I
was offered $20k for the car, and at
that time it had a few dings in it, but
we had been winning autocrosses in
Florida every year (always finished in
the top 3 in the Central Florida Region
of the SCCA).
Ok prior to that I owned an 82 Toyota Supra that was running just fine in 1994. I have been happy with the Toyota but the vibrating problem is a pain. I have had vibrating problems with all of my Toyo...
