History and Concepts
First model of this popular vehicle was made to compete with Datsun Z line, and its first design was derived from Toyota Celica. From 1978 when the first model was made until 1986, this vehicle was a version of Celica. From 1986 on, it became a separate model. It was in production until 2002. Engines of the first models were similar to the ones we could find in Toyota 2000GT and Toyota Crown. These vehicles were produced until 2002, and the sales in United States were stopped in 1996. In 2002 sales in Japan also stopped, and since then this model has a long pause in its production. Last few years there has been a lot of rumors about releasing a new generation Supra, together with some announcements coming from top Toyota officials, and FT-1 concept debut on North American Auto Show in Detroit a year ago, chances of new model coming out in this year are more than 100%.
