1994 Toyota Supra Turbo
Over the years, Toyota has forged quite a name for itself by building rock-solid, dependable transportation, but they've also been known to get a little adventurous from time to time, such as in the case of this 1994 Toyota Supra. Packing serious power under its hood and sporting one of Toyota's boldest, eye-catching designs, it's a very rare find that's only logged about 48,000 miles and comes complete with a clean AutoCheck report as proof of its sheltered life. You just don't come across Supras of this era very often, so this one is a welcome sight. It's one very sharp looking ride, featuring hints of European styling in the form of its sharply angled windshield, sloping rear roofline and the functional Ferrari-esque aggressive scoop on the deck lid. With its sleek look and low to the ground stance, it's an undeniable head turner. Its bright red paint is the same shade it began with and is in good form - judging from the fresh look of this Toyota's exterior, it's been garage kept most of the time, so you won't find any serious blemishes as you take a lap around the car. The targa top feature accentuates another of the Supra's strong points - it looks great both with the roof panels in place or with them removed for an open-air driving experience. Up front, the trio of bulbs sitting in each headlight bucket provide a great, aggressive look, while in back, the multi-colored taillights sit behind clear lenses just above the clean rear bumper, while the distinctive "Supra" script on the hatch still looks impressively sharp. The tan leather seating and matching carpet contrasts nicely with the black center console and dash area to make for a great looking driving environment. Both the front buckets with their integrated headrests and the rear bench seat are in very sharp condition. The wrap around instrument cluster has a very "driver-centric" feel to it, positioning the clear gauges for easy viewing and putting the AM/FM/Cassette/CD stereo just a short reach away. There's a nice array of features on board, including air conditioning that's blowing strong and cold, a tilt column, cruise control power door locks, power windows and remote door openers. Driver and passenger side airbags are a welcome safety measure. Raise the hatch and you'll find a surprising amount of useful room in the storage area in back. The fuel-injected 3.0 liter inline 6 sitting under the hood is a screamer - outfitted with twin turbos, it's good for a full 320 horsepower, far more than enough to rocket this great looking Toyota forward with conviction. Unlike many turbos, these activate sequentially, with all of their boost initially directed to just one turbine under 3000RPM to reduce lag for very strong acceleration. When Car and Driver tested the twin-turbo Supra, it delivered 0-60 times consistently well under 5 seconds. The engine pairs with a smooth shifting 4-speed automatic transmission to make for a responsive, yet low-effort driving experience. Handling is definitely another of its fortes - that aggressive spoiler in back creates a substantial amount of downward force to keep the car glued to the pavement, and when you factor in its already impressive .98 skidpad results, you have one supremely agile performance car on your hands. Power disc brakes sit at all four corners for quick, dependable stops as it turns heads on its 17" Toyota alloy rims, wrapped with Bridgestone Potenza tires. Lightly travelled and still very much in its prime, this 1994 Toyota Supra offers the chance to own a powerful, increasingly rare performance car in its ideal configuration. Call today!
