1988 Toyota Supra Turbo turbo from North America


Keeping this car forever, don't care how much it costs


Head gasket at 68500k. Not sure how bad, if the head is warped or the cylinder is cracked.

General Comments:

Car is quick once the turbo spools at around 2500 RPM. It has a slow takeoff if the turbo isn't spooled when accelerating from a dig.

The seats are very comfortable.

The car looks amazing; diamond white targa, 69k, all original. The car had been garaged, and I'm the 2nd owner. The body and paint is seriously as good as a car from 2005.

The car handles and hugs the road excellently. The suspension is stiff, but that's what you want; it feels like your car is one with the street.

I just love the way the car looks. It's so unique and distinctive, and doesn't look like a plain old Toyota.

1988 Toyota Supra Turbo 3.0 turbo from North America


Probably the best high performance car available under $2000


Bought with blown head gasket.

Bought a JDM engine with blown head gasket.

Replaced the radiator, misc hoses

Blown head gasket after 35000 miles

Two of the three blown head gaskets are believed to be the fault of the garage that I sent it to.

General Comments:

Very fast car. Reliable when it doesn't have a blown head gasket. Very good handling in corners. Targa top is very cool during summer.

1988 Toyota Supra 3.0 i6 7m-ge from North America


It is the single greatest creation that Toyota has ever birthed


The first engine (7mge) blew at 196000 miles, Head gaskets blew, needed new rotors. Center console cover has started to wear fairly bad, to faded blue.

General Comments:

This car is fast. It handles like a dream. New engine has 90000 miles on it and couple hundred thousand to go.

The interior is awesome in every way and the seats are the most comfortable of any car I've ever been in.

The outside of the car is quick and sporty looking. It will demand attention where ever it goes.

1988 Toyota Supra Turbo-A 7M-GTEU from Australia and New Zealand


Absolutely crazy and awesome


The car broke the bottom end. Mechanic didn't check the oil, not the cars fault.

General Comments:

This baby was (and will be again one day) putting out 360BHP @ 0.8 bar running a T78 on the stock 7M-GTE. It was incredible to drive, nothing I've been in even comes close. Full grey leather interior and leather seats, electric windows and a good sound system (that I've never used, as it would interrupt the sound of the engine).

1988 Toyota Supra 3.0 from North America


It's a great car for the age, handles very well with plenty of torque


Currently I have had to replace the following:

Replaced head gasket which blew at 120000

Clutch master cylinder at 125000

New clutch on cooling fan, repaired radiator due to overheating

Replaced rusted exhaust from the cat back

Dome light won't work, seats coming apart at the seams.

Power steering blew out, replaced it.. then it blew again.. pretty challenging to drive a 3200-pound car with 16" tires with out it.

General Comments:

This car will defiantly be a classic, however be prepared to the price or repairs and maintenance in owning one.

Gas mileage is not the best at around 19 city.

It's fairly fast for such a heavy car, but if you want true speed invest in the turbo models.

Beautiful ride with the targa top off, but not so much with it on due to lots of interior noise.

1988 Toyota Supra V6 from North America


Best car I ever owned


Brakes had to be replaced.

Headlight switch broke. $135 to replace.

Smoked slightly under hard acceleration.

Front and rear bumper faded due to sun.

General Comments:

Very fun car to drive.

Not built for highway driving or rough roads.

When the targa top was removed the car felt less ridged and seem to flex a little under harder driving.

Most reliable car I've ever owned.

Would most diffidently buy another one if it had less than 80,000 miles on it.

I disagree. I own a Toyota Supra and it loves the highway. To me that is were the car is most comfortable.

I agree that it IS a highway star. A true Gran Turismo! Comfortable at high speeds for a long distance.
