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
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.
I just Bought this supra and wanted
one for a long time.. it is all that i
expected it to be. Very Heavy Car,
smooth ride and All the power you need
is there when you need it. over all. i
i am very pleased and happy with my
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.
