Review of the 1997 Toyota Supra

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Expressive design, interior ergonomics, newly slashed prices, incredible amounts of turbo power

  • Cons

    Expressive design, totally impractical car

  • What's New for 1997

    Turbo models get the six-speed manual transmission back, but the bigger news details massive price cuts. Turbos with automatics are $12,000 less expensive than last year! All Supras commemorate the nameplate's 15th anniversary with a rear spoiler, premium sound and special badging. Despite price cuts, equipment levels are enhanced across the board.

Best affordable supercar ever built

Vehicle: 1997 Toyota Supra Turbo 2dr Coupe

Well at last earlier this year after many years of saving I finally own my Dream-Car. It is a 1997 Toyota Supra Twin Turbo Jewel Green with Gold Package very rare and I bought it with only 64K original mileage. All I can say is this car has such amazing build quality and is so quiet and solid that sometime I forget that this car is 13 years old it is that well built. Also what makes this car so timeless is its amazing shape I get compliments all the time and people always ask me when did this car come out I have not seem it in the Showroom floor and when I tell them that its a classic Toyota they never believe me. Overall they are amazing to own and a very very special car to have.




A classic worth keeping for

From the second generation from the mid-80's the supra has been my dream car. I found this in 02 with about 22000 K on it. I was looking for a manual, but this was the cleanest Supra I could find. Not a scratch. In the last seven years it has been perfect. It never fails to please. Other than 1 02 sensor, I have not had a single problem. It has ample power w/o the turbo and it s amazing how well it hugs the road.

Vehicle: 1997 Toyota Supra Turbo 2dr Coupe

This is my 3rd car after owning all Acuras. I can say that I am proudly a Toyota (eventually Lexus hybrid) owner for life! Take it to the track and take your girl out to dinner in the same night. Turns heads everywhere, and the sky is the limit when it comes to engine tuning. Literally, everything in this car can be upgraded. The car was built way ahead of it's time. I have a hard time believing that it's a 97 and not an 07. It makes a great circuit or drag racing car. Or you could just let it sit in the garage and watch it go up in value! There's a very large Supra enthusiast community like the Mustang or Camaro. This car has been extremely reliable for me even after adding HP!

This is by far one of the greatest Sports cars I have ever owned. With few mods it its fast and highly desired.




Best japanese sports car period!

Vehicle: 1997 Toyota Supra Turbo 2dr Coupe

Have my '97 15th Anniversary Edition Turbo since June of 97 and love every mile. Very reliable no issues so far other than normal wear and tear. Tan leather seats stain easily. Cruising road and wind noise rather high. Bumpy ride with my 18s you feel every little ripple on the road but the car handles like it was a part of you. Awesome brakes and cornering ability.




Perfect

This is the best sports car on Earth! With just a few bolt-on mods, the car flies. Reliable, flawless body- styling, it wins in every category.

well, however, they were heavier like the Supra and extremely rare. The 94-99 GT's were also known to handle. I know the new Celicas take handling to a higher level, but handling has been a strengt...
