I drove a Toyota when I worked for Delphi Packard years ago. I had to park in the "non GM" car parking lot waay in the back. LOL

When I was in high school there was a hot chick who had a Supra, which made her hotter ya know?

Despite that, I think the new one looks better.

1. I agree with you on the '82 Celica Supra, that's a great look. I'm sure my car preferences were influenced in my impressionable years by "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "For Your Eyes Only". smile

2. If ya gotta go digital, that Mustang video is the way to do it (with an old-school gauge option)! Yeah, I can see why you like that in your car. thumbsup

To me the new Supra looks like a Hot Wheels car that is trying to be flashy. Something for the kids.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

IMHO, style wise, the mid '80s was the Celica's high water mark. The coupe was was my choice for best look.

It won't be long were almost every car will look the same anyways.

I thought the early '90s style for the Celicas wasn't bad, as long as it was the hatchback, but I think they had transitioned to front-wheel drive at that point, which I don't like for performance cars.

The early 2000 Celicas also looked pretty sharp to me, back to that wedge shape I like so much...

new supra looks ugly but it will go like a bat out of hell and woe is the clown who thinks he will beat one in a straight line at a stoplight. The thing is bound to make immense power. Only a few common production cars will beat it.

If it lives up to its history the engine will be highly modified to 1000+ horsepower more easily than almost any other production car.

The 5th gen will be the fastest factory Supra yet, however its BMW designed I6 seems to lack the lofty upgrade potential of the 4th gen's I6.
