The Toyota Supra was designed to be a sporting machine that could compete with many of the major powerhouses of the day , but it wasn’t until the fourth generation Supra bowed in 1993, that the car gained its status as one of the all-time greats.
It featured an all-new exterior design that was more aerodynamic and much sportier looking than its predecessor. Gone were the sharp edges and pop-up headlamps to be replaced with long smooth curves. Along with the new look, the car also went on a diet losing 200 pounds or more, depending on the trim level.
As is the case with almost all major changes, fans of the car were worried Toyota was softening the intentions of the car. That was until they turned the key on the new drivetrains. While everyone thought Toyota was creating a friendlier, slower Supra, what it actually created was a supercar -eating monster that would grow into a cult icon.
