Why is it that as soon as people see a car from toyota that has alot of power it is instantly called the supra. If it has no name dont call it a damn supra, the supra probably isnt coming back but that doesnt mean that they will not release another performance car. So if you are having the urge to call a car a supra which you either 1. have no idea what its called or 2. are just plain stupid...shut up and keep your stupid idea to your self.

Sorry this is just bugging me.

yea but i mean. i think to most people a supra sticks to their head. Its so legendary everyone wants it to come back but it won't same like those Hemi's in the new dodges they claim Hemi but its not even close to one.

I guess most people are just airhead supra crazy lovers.

The Supra is and always will be the powerhouse of Toyota's...

With excellent and super suave styling, and the 2JZ-GTE + RWD to boot, you just can't beat it with much.

It's because of those simple facts that everyone loves it, and everyone knows what it is..

So much so that they even featured it in F&F...kind of proves your point...

I'm so glad I'm not the only one in this boat, I think that has to be one of my biggest pet peeves about cars... besides street racing, and stupid ppl who think they know what they are talking about and is full of bs (ie the rolla driver with his Cvic Si type-r conversionand turbo with the spooling drizzle).

yes I understand that the Supra was a great car, and simply one of the best, but it has died and we need to move on and stop calling ever car that looks or is powerful a Supra, its dead and get over it!

it's kinda the same idea as the people who still think elvis is alive. both the supra and elvis were the king, both are the best in ther field even many years later, and both died way too early.

i'm afriad that if toyota tried to bring back the supra, they'd mess it up by 1. not putting in an I6 2. not offering a turbo version. but if any toyota executives wanna bring out a 400 bhp sports car, by no means let me stop you. :D

People need to kill their dreams of a Supra. Yeah it was a nice car, looked cool. But to tell you the truth, it never blew my mind. There are tons of cars better than it. And there are lots that are able to put down the power. Less work, less money. The Supra was a hastle. And it wasn't that great.

People need to give up. They can't revive the Supra. It would be just as dumb as bringing back the GTO. Cause you see so many of those on the road :rolleyes:

Yea i'm waiting for Toyota's version of the STI or the EVO. 4drs are the way to go now in today's world. Oh i forgot about the whole F&F thing. That made the supra and Skyline extremely extremely popular and also the Rx-7 but not as much not sure why. Also famoused the Blitz kit on the clipse's

We will always have the Supra imprinted in our minds.

Unless it's an I6 RWD sport coupe, it ain't a Supra.

Even before F&F I always thought that the Supra kicked ass...as well as the RX-7...If i had a choice though between a supra and a 3rd gen rx-7..I'd choose the mazda....sorry guys.....

Some people have confused my 89 corolla GTS with an older model supra......:thumbup:

It did not impress you??? and did not blow your mind?? It is ofcourse your own opinion, but know a little about the facts first. None of the so-called better cars you are mentioning have a 3 liter engine block that can generate up to 1100 HP without any significant changes to the motor.
