Fast in Turbo form, lots of fun, and an effortless high-speed cruiser
Rust, expensive to repair, a bit on the large side to be a genuine sports car

Introduction

The third generation of Supra saw the Celica prefix dropped as it became a model in its own right. It was actually Toyota’s third incarnation of the Supra (we didn't get the first), but unlike the previous two, this ’New’ Supra was available with a turbocharger, and targa-top roof panel.

Available with a 200bhp normally aspirated straight six at launch; the turbocharged version arrived in 1987, boosting power to a more impressive 232bhp. The car was very advanced, and offered (as an expensive optional extra) a clever set of electronically controlled dampers.

All the gadgets in the world could not disguise its weight though, and at more than 1600kg, the Supra was more grand tourer than sports car.
