Toyota Supra 1983-2000
These ‘Celicas on steroids’ disappeared in 1999 however a brand new Supra is reported to be coming. Supras were sold new in Australia only until 1993 when a completely new design appeared and was deemed unsuited to our market. Early 2.8-litre and 3.0-litre MA70 turbo cars from the late-1980s sell in excellent order at $16-20,000. Non-turbo versions are generally cheaper than single turbos and that holds good as well for the 1994-99 RZ/SZ series. Non-turbo SZs are popular with ‘P’ plate drivers but even with 164kW they don’t come close to matching the twin-turbo RZ. These have a notional 206kW but most go close to 280kW. Asking prices for late-1990s versions have increased quite markedly however pre-1996 models still do the job at under $35,000.
