If you ask anyone who considers themselves a car enthusiast or even those who only casually enjoy cars – what some of the vehicles that really defined the car culture are – I think a lot of people would include a Toyota Supra on their list. It’s a tough choice as there have been a lot of cool and innovative machines over the years, but I think the Supra has really earned its spot. The car definitely comes from humble beginnings, but as the generations continued to evolve the machine, it has definitely come into its own, becoming one of the staples of the performance community.
When it really began to hit a stride with the MKIV generation, a feature in a little movie that goes by the name of the Fast and the Furious really catapulted the car to a new level, making boys and girls of all ages begin to salivate just a little bit more at the mere thought of being able to ever get their hands on one of these monsters and as such, the modifications really got going.
This time, we take a minute to go all the way back to the beginning, appreciating the roots of the Supra and exactly where it has come from to build a reputation that it has managed to grow to the top today. Even if you don’t love them, you have to acknowledge the fact that this car has really done some damage as it has pounded its way into the top echelon of performance cars in history.
Time hasn’t necessarily closed the final chapter of the Supra just yet as there are constantly murmurs of the car coming back but, even if it were to become extinct today, you’d have to admit that the Supra would probably always be regarded as one of the greatest cars of all time.
Follow along in the detailed video below that gives you quite the synopsis of the Supra’s lifespan, where it’s come from, and how exactly it has grown to the point that it has. After checking this one out for yourself, be sure to tell us what you think of the rundown and if you would add anything to this timeline that brings you up to speed on exactly everything that is Toyota Supra.
