Mint 1994 Toyota Supra Turbo Proves Why The Mk4 Is A Legend

The fourth-generation Toyota Supra (A80) is by far the most famous Supra of all, and it owes a lot to the appearance in the first installment of The Fast and the Furious movie franchise.

Obviously, the Supra has a lot more going for it than just a movie appearance. Let’s start with the engine, the phenomenal 2JZ 3.0-liter straight-six which in twin-turbocharged form (2JZ-GTE) delivered up to 320 hp at 5,600 rpm and 315 lb-ft (427 Nm) of torque at 4,000 rpm in the U.S.-spec 1993 Supra.

The engine allowed the Supra to do 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in under five seconds, which was sensational 25 years ago and is still highly-respectable today. But the 2JZ-GTE engine’s best-known quality is its strength that allows significant power and torque gains with aftermarket tweaks. With the stock internals, the engine is capable of taking up to 800 horsepower. Further modifications can easily take it north of 1,000 horsepower.

This particular Mk4 Supra Doug DeMuro reviewed recently is not tuned, however. In fact, it’s 100 percent in stock condition, making it one of the very few A80 Supras that escaped the tuning frenzy. Furthermore, it’s a very rare configuration. Besides the turbo engine, it features the six-speed manual transmission and targa top.

Factor in the low mileage (only 12,715 miles/20,462 km) and it’s pretty clear this is a unicorn in the Supra world. A car in this configuration and condition sells for over $100,000, which is (hopefully) a lot more than the base price of its A90 successor. Watch the video to learn why a 1990s Toyota is worth so much money.

    Mk 3 is better, as well as the Celica Supra.
    I’ve never cared for the Mk 4.
