The car performs amazingly. Big power pins you into your seat. The brakes and suspension are up for anything you throw at them. Huge grip on curvy roads, and the car just sounds amazing at full tilt. Don't stay on it too long, or you risk your driver's license. Definitely a very capable car that can run with anything on the road, or away from it. Driven sedately, it's as mild as your family sedan. Gets lots of looks, and it's very reliable. Fit and finish is great, considering the newest MKIV Supra is already 9 years old. They are holding their value really well, fueled by a very active aftermarket presence. Buy one if you want a great performing Japanese machine.
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.
