Toyota Supra

I was coming home from work today and pulled up next to a Supra. It had the tall ass wing on the back like the sti's and evo's got. It was the first time I'd seen one. My buddy at work with the Lingenfelter Vette warned me about these cars, said that they can even take Vettes out. This one had a turbo badge on the back, I'm guessing they're all turbo charged? What makes this car so badass anyways? There was a cop 2 lanes over to the right about 200 yards ahead with my fuzzbuster screaming to beat hell and back so we didn't get to "play"...

They are not all turbo charged but the ones that are and are set up correctly are making 700+rwhp. Obviously that is upgraded turbos, etc. There are even some that are making 1000+rwhp. Usually with that high rwhp, they are running around 30psi or more of boost.

Stock they are fairly quick too. They run low 14's stock. With mild mods they are an easy low 13 high 12's car.

They're like the Mustang 5.0. You never know what the guy is running till it's too late. It's a good car to be careful with.

Just watch out, I have seen many supras pulled on 500+ hp Cobras and Vettes. A twin turbo modified supra only weighing in at 3400 pounds including the driver is no joke. Also watch out for the non-turbo supras. There engines have higher compression than the twin turbo ones, so people have been bolting on single turbo kits and can easily make 500hp+ with just a single turbo kit. Hope this info helps anyone out.

And for the record, if they're running low 14's stock, then the driver sucks.
It's pretty effortless to get low 13's in this car STOCK.

No...mine is not stock, but when I first got it it was BONE stock, and it ran mid 13's all day.
Auto tranny to boot!

The Supras can be beasts. I've always like them and would be cautious when running one.

Can't understand why Toyota stopped making a car to showcase their technology and give the brand some sex appeal. They have successfully edged out Oldsmobile for the title of worlds most boring lineup.

Baffling.

The last generation Supras were into the 13's stock. Modded, they are BEASTS!!! Search Youtube and you will see what I mean.
