Supra Twin Turbo
13,059 Actual Mile One Owner Supra 3.0 Liter Twin Turbo
If any car could be considered the Hemi Cuda of the 90s, it would be the twin turbo Toyota Supra. With an unmatched combination of brute power, attractive looks and everyman appeal, the Supra offered performance and style that defined a genre. These cars were a great performance value when new and judging by market prices that continue to rise, they will likely be great investment cars for the future. Last fall we got our hands on this "(external)super clean 1994 model":http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/inventory/1994-Toyota-Supra-Twin-Turbo/132568 which sat in our showroom for only 13 days before it sold for $55K. And that sale came right on the heels of this "(external)slick 1997 model":http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/inventory/1997-Toyota-Supra-Twin-Turbo/132329 that lasted two weeks to the day before it sold for $62K!

This pristine 1995 Supra is a completely unmodified, one owner road rocket which is in outstanding original condition. And with just 13,059 miles of weekend driving on its cool green odometer, it has to be one of the best kept, showroom fresh Toyota sports cars on the planet. Its aerodynamic body is covered in shiny black basecoat/clearcoat paint which, according to the CarFax included with the sale, has never been repaired. Its panel gaps are, in typical Toyota fashion, incredibly precise. Its paint is free of the heavy orange peel and thin spots you see in other production metal of the same vintage. And overall, the car appears to have led a pampered life which probably didn't even involve rainy days or any kind of inclement weather.
As a classic example of the proven Japanese tradition of packing universal good looks with tons of functionality, this Supra's exterior masks its first rate sophistication with elegant simplicity. At the front of the car, large flush-fitting chrome headlight buckets hang halogen headlights and HID fog lights between a contoured bumper that houses good looking front and side mounted amber turn signals, and a graphite gray Toyota emblem. Behind that contoured bumper, the sides of the car, which carry no ornamentation at all, hang deep and lustrous black window frames, which display no UV damage, above wide air intakes that are mounted at the front of the rear wheels. Above those window frames, a snug fitting lift-off roof is easily removed, suggesting that the car has never been hammered on; and behind those window frames, a towering rear wing shows no signs of sagging and none of the paint chips that are typical of cars which see a lot of road time. Below that straight wing, a familiar curved trunk lid holds an altezza style center high mount stop lamp above a second graphite gray Toyota emblem and a passenger's side mounted graphite gray “Supra” emblem. And at the edges of the rear fascia, awesome Supra taillights with four individual round lenses that are as clear as the day they left the showroom perfectly complement a stainless factory exhaust tip. This is one heck of a nice car that is in excellent shape!
The real reason Supras are so insanely popular, rare, and expensive lies under the hood. For the same reason that the Hemi made a garden-variety Barracuda special, the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six cylinder shoved under this car's hood makes the Supra special. Long and tall, inline sixes aren't great for under-hood packaging but they are silky smooth and present easy routing for turbochargers. Throughout the 90s, they were pretty commonplace, especially in the Japanese market and not surprisingly, Toyota built up a ton of back stock. Ever the enterprising company, they started stuffing these motors into Supras, turned up the boost, and made 320 horsepower thanks to dual sequential turbochargers. What this means is plenty of flexible power with little turbo lag; the first turbo spools up at low engine speeds for quick throttle response, while the second comes in at higher speeds and feels a lot like a second stage rocket separation. There is a slight hesitation in acceleration, and then the car explodes with an adrenaline-rush of power that slews it sideways as the tires struggle to hold on. As you can see from the photos, this car's engine bay is fresh and spotless with every original component showing no wear, no dirt and certainly no corrosion. And based on appearance alone, this car has never even been pushed to its limits, much less raced or abused.
Although they were available with 6-speed manuals, Supras equipped with this cars smooth shifting 4-speed automatic certainly had no trouble proving that the old 'slushbox handicap' was about as outdated as the companies Starlet compact. These transmissions seem to survive behind modified Supras with more than 700 horsepower, so handling this stock cars output is a piece of cake. The fully independent front and rear suspension is sports car capable while allowing a smooth, comfortable ride. And added safety equipment, which includes standard traction control and four wheel disc brakes with a built in anti-lock, ensures that this car excels on both the street and the track. You'll note from this cars ride height that its suspension is completely stock, and nothing has been modified or replaced during the past 17 years. Even the exhaust system is original and makes this 3000GT eater as quiet as a new Lexus. Original 17 inch alloy wheels live at the cars corners along with correct 235/45 front and 255/40 rear Bridgestone Potenza radials.
Peer inside this cool Toyota and you'll find an attractive tan and black interior which is a pleasant change from the 'coal chamber' cockpits of most 90s sports cars. Wonderfully preserved, the tan leather seats show almost no signs of use and despite their light coloring, no dirt or wear. The dash and console are black, of course, and provide a striking contrast to the light upholstery. Naturally, everything is angled towards the driver, and controls are straightforward and well laid out in typical Toyota fashion. These cars were heavy on the technology, so every gadget the engineers could think up went into this flagship, and everything works properly today, including the factory CD player, cassette deck and seven speaker sound system which includes a factory subwoofer. Tan carpets are in excellent condition thanks to a set of black “Supra” branded floor mats. And the door panels, which feature controls for the cars power windows and power door locks, are intentionally simple to match the exterior of the car. Behind the cockpit, an immaculate hatch maintains enough room to stow the targa roof, and at the same time, carry a small amount of groceries home from the store.
Documentation for this pristine Supra includes the cars original window sticker, all of its original books and manuals, two sets of keys and a clean CarFax.
If you were to ask us what newer cars will be collectable and appreciate in the coming years, the twin turbo Supra would be at the head of that list. Unmolested examples like this low mileage 1995 model are impossibly hard to find, and I'd be willing to bet that none of them are quite this nice. If you're looking for a factory fresh collector car to preserve and enjoy, or build one heck of a track machine out of, we have the car for you!
