Wow this is one of the best maintained supra's I've seen in a long time.
The owner of the Blue /silver Supra should definitely do something to his car.Really doesn't look healthy.

Was that brake shot of the front or rear brakes? If front, those are non turbo brakes as well.. meaning that is a non turbo car for sure. Come to think of it, I'm not sure the turbo calipers would fit under the 16" wheels in any case, so that car is a non turbo from what I can tell.
absolutely correct observation, with the turbo brakes there is no way you can fit any rim smaller than 17 inches with the correct offset. however there were some turbos Jap spec with the NA brake set up i.e 2 piston fr 1 piston rr. this option was standardized to 4 piston 2 pist set up in 1995 for all turbos.

as far as I know there are only two supra's in BD your one and a red one(NA) in Purana paltan area,I must say you have maintained the car perfectly and I think its time to pass it to someone(me).Jokes apart please let me know if you at all want to sell your prized possession.I promise I will keep it original and I won't thrash it.

Even then you couldn't really bring her down, except TR (?) maybe. Or if you plan to keep her in BD and drive her there.

Shabbirs's white Supra in Banglore was for sale long time back. Not sure of its current status. Banglore bhpians would know.

I cannot believe that Toyota can design such a beautiful car. They must have outsourced the design of this one. Otherwise it is difficult to explain a Supra and an Etios/Innova/Altis standing side by side.

yes they can otherwise how do you explain the creation of Lexus LF A and no the mkiv supra was 100% Japanese.Most people do not know it but it was successor of a limited production classic made by toyota in 60's (2000gt).

And as far as etios innova and altis are concerned they were made to meet practicality and for developing countries with demand for low running cost cars,so toyota does not concentrate on the looks or performance that much.Whereas the supra was made to compete with porsches and other european sports cars.

It is now official they will not make newer models of the supra,but there will be a successor which will share lot of its components with the LF A and it will be targeted at a segment between the Nissan 370z and the gtr.

Arrow Friend wants a Twin-Turbo Supra. Any well-kept examples out there?
