Toyota Supra Models and Supra History

Meaning to surpass or go beyond, the Supra name was conceived by Toyota as a glorified version of the Celica. Longer and wider than the Celica, the 1979 debut of the Toyota Supra featured a 2.6-liter six-cylinder engine with electronic fuel injection and four-wheel disc brakes. The engine size was enlarged in 1982 as a second generation Supra premiered with retractable pop-up headlights as well as a Performance package wearing flared fenders. In mid-1986, the third generation Toyota Supra was no longer based on the Celica. In addition to a 3.0-liter powerplant, the 1987 model year saw the Supra gain a 230-horsepower turbocharged engine. The fourth and last completely new generation version of the Toyota Supra were introduced in 1993. Offered with a 320-horsepower twin-turbocharged model capable of 0 to 60-mile per hour acceleration in under five seconds, the fourth generation Supra was affirmed as a supercar. Emissions and sluggish sales for the premium sports car would end the availability of the Toyota Supra in the United States after the 1999 model year.
