1994 Toyota Supra Turbo 3.0L Inline 6 Sequential turbo


What else can I say, the Supra is Super!


Trunk speaker blew but was replaced under warranty (1994)

Radio antenna jammed and had to be replaced (2008).

General Comments:

The Supra is truly a fantastic sports/grand touring car!

At the time I test drove the Corvette, 300ZX, Mustang, and 3000GT and chose the Supra without hesitation or regret even though it was dead last on my list of possible cars to buy at the time. It really made an impression on me when I drove it for the first time.

With 320HP and 315ft-lb torque it’s fast, reliable, looks great with a style that is still not out of place among today's cars.

Smooth on the low end of the RPM gauge, an acceleration tiger on the high end. This is due to the 2 stock sequential turbos. (One for lower speed acceleration and a larger one that kicks in at higher speeds).

I still have my Supra TT after over 14 years because there's nothing out there on the market yet that I'd rather own. I never expected to have it this long. The car is really in a class onto itself.

1994 Toyota Supra Targa 3.0 turbo


The most beautiful, fun, fast, expensive, and favorite car you'll ever own


A/C was not working when I bought the car (but who cares, it's a supra :)

Started failed at about 140,xxx miles.

Valve stem seals on the head need to be replaced (common issue)

Water pump had to be changed at about 146,xxx miles.

General Comments:

Wow, what a beautiful car. You can't keep it from turning heads wherever you go. Put some custom wheels on it and it's a sight to behold.

The car is super fast right out of the box. Mine was bone stock when I bought it (it's got a couple small mods now) but definitely not a good car for a novice driver. Loads of power, still faster than most new sports cars.

Can be expensive on repairs (but what supercar isn't) They are getting old, so chances are things are going to break. Keep in mind the car is very reliable though.

Can be very pricey to purchase.

1994 Toyota Supra Turbo 3.0 turbo


Stellar Performance with Amazing Reliability


Power antenna has bent twice... left it up both times through the car wash! Replaced with a rubberized GPS-style stubby antenna.

Weather-striping at front of targa roof became loose causing turbulence when the targa was off. Added 3M double sided tape to cure this.

General Comments:

Toyota was years ahead of the competition when it introduced this car in 1993. Even by today's standards, this car is still very relevant. Fantastic engine performance, stupendous brakes, driver-centric comfortable interior, and RELIABLE. There are few sports cars that can match the reliability of a Supra.

My Supra is a 1994, and has been tastefully modded. It now makes over 500 horsepower at the crank, yet is still docile enough to be my daily driver. Combined city and highway driving yields 22.5 MPG, which is amazing for this caliber of performance. Put flatly, the performance is immense. This is one of the few cars that you can truly say pushes you back in the seat with its explosive power and acceleration. How fast? Mid 12's in the quarter mile on street tires on relatively low boost. The interior is very comfortable, with the center stack tilted towards the driver. A tach sits front and center in the gauge display. The ride is firm, but very comfortable and forgiving. It is nowhere near as harsh as a C5 Corvette, yet delivers better handling (.96G on the skidpad!). The targa adds a nice touch for summer days, and is remarkably turbulent free.

But best of all is just how reliable this car is. You'd think with the amount of horsepower, that things might break. Not so. All that is done is regular oil changes every 3000 miles. I also change the spark plugs at the same interval since it's cheap to do and keep the car performing perfectly. Nothing has gone wrong with this car. It's as reliable as any other Toyota, which means just add gas and go, go , go!

Totally agree with comment above.

I love the sound of a big American v-8,but as overall package the Supra is still right up there in the UK as one of the bench mark cars today.

Just a shame that petrol price's and steep insurance costs put me off owning a brilliant car.
