The Toyota Supra is a sports car & grand tourer that
was produced by Toyota Motor Company from 1979 to 2002.
Starting in mid-1986, Toyota stopped using the prefix
Celica and began rebadging the car Supra.
Toyota also included its own logo for the Supra. It is
derived from the original Celica logo, being blue instead
of orange. This logo was used until January 1986, when the
Mark III Supra was introduced. The new logo was similar in
size, with orange writing on a red background, but without
the dragon design. That logo, in turn, was on Supras until
1991 when Toyota switched to its current oval company
logo. (the dragon logo was a Celica logo regardless of
what color it was.
The Supra traces its roots back to the Toyota 2000GT.
The first three generations were offered with a direct
descendant to the Toyota Crown's and 2000GT's M engine.
All four generations of Supra produced have an inline
6-cylinder engine. Interior aspects were also similar, as
was the chassis code "A".
The Toyota Supra High Performance 2JZ-GTE, 3.0 Litre DOHC
six-cylinder, 24-valve, electronically fuel-injected engine
has been favorably compared with the Nissan RB26 from the
Skyline GTR. With the similar twin turbocharger
configuration but on the opposite side of the engine, it
produces an easy 320 hp at 5,600 rpm and 315 lb-ft of torque
at 4,000 rpm.
