1990 Toyota Supra Hatchback Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

There is almost nothing bad about this
car. The speed, dry-road handling,
braking and style is just amazing. It
is also very easy to upgrade for
performance. I must correct those of
you who have commented on the bad head
gasket. It can survive ~350HP if you
retorque the headbolts and it wasn't
abused.


Best Features

TEMS (firm when accelerating/braking), Limited-slip Differential, power and reliability.


Worst Features

The engine bay is a little on the cramped side (wire harnesses everywhere) and the fuel economy is in need of some improvement.

Review

I just got this car a couple of weeks
ago. I've driven supra's before and
have nothing but good words for it.
The interior features are great, love
the targa top, and just overall a fun
ride. However, the headgasket on mine
just blew, and when I went to fix it,
we found a cracked cylinder head. I
hope this doesn't cost too much cause
I really like my car, and wouldn't
want to be turned off by the repair
costs.


Best Features

roof, power seat w/ lumbar, handling


Worst Features

factory headgasket sucks, needs better, sound system

Review

I just love this car!
Stylish without being 'over the top'.
Good handling, comfort and ride
without being irritatingly oversharp,
bumpy and twitchy.
Relaxingly roomy with great luggage
capacity. IT SEATS 4!
Ultra quiet and smooth when
accelerating hard.
It is a quality car that happens to
cost very little for what it delivers -
a lot of bangs for the buck.It is a
Grand Touring car rather than a serious
sports car. It has a timeless
understated elegance that will/has not
dated as fast as others.


Best Features

Supra is a HEAVY car which allows it to have a comfortable ride and aids stability. It seats 4 in relative comfort - try doing that in any Porsche or many other far more expensive sporting coupes.


Worst Features

Better rear vision. Non pop-up headlights. TEMS with more settings than just 'normal' or 'sports'. Vents to capture and release more air to and from engine. Better sound system and fuel economy - AND more bhp - (who doesn't?)

Review

i have no complaints from my turbo
supra. i LOVE it. the FACTORY
headgaskets can be re-torqued for
reduced risk of blowing. stock boost
definitely doesnt pose a problem. im
running a steel gasket with a garret
62-1 modified ct-26 turbo ad arp bolts.
i push 350+ bhp out of my car and
nothing less than a t/a or a z28 is a
challenge. cobras neednt even bother
applying ;) mods cost $1300 list price.
did the gasket myself.


Best Features

power seats, targa top, headlight auto off(even though they pop up)


Worst Features

cupholders, pop ups shouldnt be, targa ridgidity with top off, glass area makes for hot car, electric fans instead- 12 hp intercooler piping expands too much- loses boost presure

I love the car, where else can you get
all this power with comforts that most
cars today dont offer, heated mirrors,
12 way adjustable seats, adjustable
suspension and automatic climate control

cant beat that!!
