1997 toyota supra turbo for sale
Fast Facts:

  • The Supra was supposed to have factory dual exit exhaust tips, but the engineers decided to save 30 lbs and go with a single outlet system instead
  • The hood, targa roof panel, and suspension are made out of aluminum
  • The fuel tank is plastic for weight savings. Roll bars, rear spoiler, and even the carpet fibers(!) were hollow. Misc. bolts throughout car featured hollowed-out heads – all in the name of saving weight
  • The 180 MPH speedometer exists for a reason: an early (unrestricted) test mule achieved this speed during development
  • The Supra’s 2JZ engine is one of the strongest factory power plants to come out of Japan (and arguably the world). These engines reliably handle 700-900 horsepower on a stock bottom end – unheard of at the time. Enthusiasts claim to push 2,000 hp
Key Model Year Changes:

  • 1997 featured additional frame strengthening and sound-deadening material over the previous year
  • First year of “Turbo” badging
  • Head and tail lights received the aggressive Graphite surround (previously chrome surround)
  • All models were sold as 15th Anniversary Limited Edition Models
  • There was no 6spd Manual 1996 model. It was axed due to lack of OBD2 certification. This almost marked the death of the Supra. However, 1997 saw the return of the 6spd, as well as a major price reduction of ~$10k from the previous years (due to lack of sales)

Seller Notes:
