The Supra name first appeared in the Celica range on the Celica Supra, which unlike the other four-cylinder cars in the range had a 171ci (2.8-liter) straight six twin-cam motor with 168bhp (125kW). By 1986 the two names had separated again and the Supra was completely re-styled. Its engine was taken out to 183ci (3 Hires) and with 24 valves, power was up to 200bhp (149kW). Three years later Toyota hotted the car up with an intercooled turbo for 232bhp (173kW) and much improved mid-range torque. This turned the car from cruising GT to street monster; Toyota had well and truly put the Supra into supercar territory. Wishbone suspension plus fattened anti-roll bars gave it good handling. The brakes were 11-inch (279mm) vented discs with ABS. Power steering was essential, and the car was better with the standard five-speed manual, though four-speed auto was popular.
