| ||Model of the car:||Turbo|
| ||General comments:||Everytime you stomp on that gas pedal, you had better be prepared for a blown head-gasket! Toyota engineers produced an engine with several design flaws. The non-turbo and turbo-charged engines are virtually the same motor! The turbo-charged engines aren't able to keep up with the pressure and stress that the turbo puts on them. Trust me, I know. I went through one engine when I threw a piston rod, and two more head gaskets after I replaced the old engine with one that only had 30k miles!!! The worst part was that this all happened within the year after I bought the piece of crap! If you want to buy the supra because of it's looks, buy a non-turbo and save yourself a lot of headaches and grief!|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||The performance from this car was very disappointing. Don't buy this car if you want a fast car!! Good luck upgrading, it only costs you a few thousand dollars, then there's also the repairs when your engine blows up!|
| ||Previous car:||1987 Trans Am GTA (305 c.i. with tuned port injection). Don't try to race against any car like this or you'll just be very humiliated like I was!|
