1998 Toyota Supra Turbo 3.0 I6 turbo from North America
I simply love this car and its such a blast to drive. Who could ask for anything more!
Needed to replace all engine mounts.
Performed regular maintenance, timing belt, new tires.
Had to replace door speakers. They blew out because they are cheap type.
Replaced coil packs and hoses because this engine generates a lot of heat and rubber, plastic and heat don't mix well.
This car is really fast and has excellent handling.
The interior is pretty well bolstered for a sports car.
The controls are driver oriented facing the driver and are well made.
I can smoke most cars and everyone stares at my car when I drive it bringing a lot of attention.
The trunk is not bad for a sports car but can only fit small items. Sorry no golf clubs or suit cases.
The rear seats are just for decoration because even small kids will have a hard time because it lacks in leg room.
The Supra has very wild looks and turns heads ALL the time!
The parts for this car are hard to come by since its so rare and only a few were made.
The rarity of this car makes it more popular to obtain and also its been featured in movies.
Visibility is alright and backing up is pretty good even with the big spoiler in the rear.
If you pound this car on the streets you have to let the turbo's rest for about 3 minutes or your bearings will fry and that gets kinds of irritating.
But a turbo timer will solve that problem easily.
The sport roof comes off and you can have yourself a convertible, however when it rains you have to pull over and cover it quick, believe me it happened to me once. Make sure it's a super sunny day guaranteed.
The used car prices will remain ridiculously high due to the classic collector value and the very few numbers that were made. Some sell for even more than the original sticker price depending on mods and well maintained cars.
Working on the engine can be cumbersome due to its tight bay and components that are very close together.
Changing the oil is a chore on this car but it can be done. Small hands and chinese acrobatics help.
0-60 comes in about 5.4 seconds and quarter mile is about 13's.
This car has 320 h.p. and 325 ft. lbs. of torque so it has the power to match its supra fine looks.
Body hardware is very good. Doors, controls, panels etc.
This car doesn't have a cup holder at all! But then who would sip coffee at 150 mph.
You can hear the two turbo's come in to play, one at a low rpm and the second bigger turbo comes whistling in at around 4000 rpm making this car fly like jet taking off!
The turbo engine has a speed limiter at around 155 mph but this car could easily do 180 mph without it.
The ride is bumpy, but it's a sports car that's why, and amplifies every pavement flaw.
This car is very reliable for a sports car and it's a Toyota!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
