Christ they offered a lot of engines in this car. The American market got both the 3 liter inline 6 7M motor in GE (Naturally aspirated with approx 200hp) or in GTE trim (single turbo motor with 230 hp). Other countries enjoyed engines such as the 1G-FE and 1G-GE motors (2 liter straight 6s with 150 and 170hp respectively) and even a 1G-GTE (same motor except with 185hp and twin turbos). But of course as usual Japan hoarded the 1JZ-GTE motor which was a 2.5 liter twin turbo motor with 270hp. The car was always a bit of a porker seeing upwards of around 3450lbs so its not a featherweight. But is it cool?

I think it's an awesome car except for the headgasket issue

Hyper mega super uncool, because it looks bad like a transam/mr2 from the back yugghg iich

It doesn't look very good, and it's whored around so much by a group of people I would describe as having "bad taste".

Not as bad as the soapbar supras though. Uncool.

Could you explain a little more on examples of them having bad taste or something?

soapbar supras?
clarkma5
Soapbar supras = last gen

And I mean, lots of people with this gen of supra just...rice it. Yeah. I don't like it.

Clark would sooner eat his GTI piece by piece than admit that a modern japanese car is cool.

The S2000 is cool! The Miata is cool! The RX-7 is cool! The Protegé is cool! The ITR is cool!

These are cool cars. I have no hatred against japanese cars.

My thoughts exactly. That late 80's jap car is faster than many cars today

Not to mention modding potential
TrueSlideXL
It's got low modding potential laugh.gif . But if there is ever an mk4 put up I demand they are pics of my car. Here's some good pics of some friends mk3's for sale so I guess you can use these pics.

Very cool. Personally i think it looks badass, i don't know what some of you are talking about. It's fast and its RWD, what more do you want?

When were they fast?

Turbo straight 6s are ALWAYS fast. Straight 6 engine propelled the world's fastest full body Supra to 8.6 sec in the 1/4. They've been fast since people started racing them.

There are full bodied (ie. stock framerails and all) Mustangs going 7s. Whoopty-doo. To top it off, it only has a single power adder [blower] instead of the TWO that the Titan Supra, who I assume you are referring to, has. [turbo + juice]

High five for letting me get to you. laugh.gif
DakianDelomast
Was I compairing Mustang to Supra? Did I say "oh the supra will trounce the mustang." No. I said the straight 6 is fast. And it is. End of story.

"Throw enough money at something..."


"...And V8 will be faster." End of story.

Also note: The Supra you are referring to is a MkIV Supra, not the MkIII the thread starter created this discussion about. :heart:
clarkma5
umop, the point still remains that the Supra is objectively fast..."fastest"? No, it's not. Fast? yes.

What a ridiculous fucking argument.

His dumbass started it!

I merely said it was slow and it is, objectively, slow. You all are allowed your opinions but I'm not? T-riffic.

Actually, it would be his "Dumb ass" that started it, not his "Dumbass"

Very true thanks for that correction. And umop don't worry I'm not being serious but I do suggest we end this arguement before we're both demeaned any further.
