The Supra is known by enthusiasts for its famous Twin Turbo model in the 1990’s.

This vehicle is a classic performance car that will remain recognisable forever and for what owners were getting, it was extremely affordable.

Fact: It is also one of the easiest cars to tune as people are able to push 900+ horsepower without changing the engine.

The Toyota Supra is one of the most iconic Japanese sports cars ever.

The first generation was introduced back in 1979 and they released this after they decided that they needed something to compete with the Datsun’s Z-cars.

The way they did this was by getting their Celica model, stretching it out, adding a more powerful engine and calling it the Celica Supra.

How the Toyota Supra came to be

After a while Supra gained a lot of popularity and the wanted to convert the Celica car into a front-wheel drive so they completely removed Celica and called it the Toyota Supra; doing this allowed the car to stay rear-wheel drive.

This was a complete success and the Supra become more and more popular.

Unfortunately, the car started to depreciate and ended up coming off of production in 2002.

This was because the increase in pricing and the cost of building the cars was far too much for the average buyer.
