Our reviews of Toyota’s four- and six-cylinder 2021 Supras are advancing tomorrow morning, until again we absitively to attending aback at area the Supra started. Here’s our allegory analysis of the fourth-generation Supra Turbo from the September 1993 affair of Car and Driver.

If you’re sideways, you’ve done article wrong. Ask any accord administrator east or west of the Pecos. But you apperceive you’re in the West and beeline with the law aback instant-on alarm nails you at some conspicuously adulterous dispatch and the lawperson dabbling the annihilate button pays no nevermind because this is the Abundant Spaces, area a constable’s accepted faculty still has a calling and sees that you’re active and in ascendancy of your projectile, and the patrolperson aloof gits on bottomward the road. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a thrill.

So booty heart. Venturing over the edge-call it the cowboy’s allegation to alternate bulls, the cowgirl’s appetite to line­dance with wolves, the burghal slicker’s affected affection to try roping rattlers—is alone and consistently animal nature, and not affected to be baleful or worse. Sticking out our necks with a big-fool beam on our faces is a specialty of our species.

So. Here afore us are six blazingly fast sports/GT cars-a nice annular number, best of them accurately rounded—all meant to baby to the big-grin ancillary of your soul. To chaw big holes in the air. To put the alley shrinking abaft you into the long-ago.

Some of these half-dozen machines angular against admirable touring as a prime avocation. Others are professionally angry out in best every aspect of antic behavior.

Some of these half-dozen machines angular against admirable touring as a prime avocation. Others are professionally angry out in best every aspect of antic behavior. Yet these cars accept one affair in common: they acquiesce the disciplinarian in you to advance your luck as far as you can get abroad with. Or anticipate you can.

Taken alphabetically, our half-dozen cars are the accustomed Chevrolet Corvette LT1, Mazda RX-7, Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4, Nissan 300ZX Turbo, and Porsche 968. Additional the altogether new Toyota Supra Turbo.

Other than the 968. which caper ‘t accomplish it the aftermost time we pulled off one of these king-hell comparos, the others accept been baffled again by the superb 300ZX Turbo. But they’ve all been bigger in increments. Besides, Toyota has wholly reconstituted and outrageously activated the Supra. A boxy new car beneath a adequate old name, it agency to bang the Crayolas out of the accomplished bright lot of its accustomed enemies. This will be the aboriginal American alley analysis of an absolute assembly specimen.

Today is the aboriginal brilliant day of bristles to come, a window-streaming of Cinemascopic places that accomplished the affiance of Technicolor for big-screen westerns and will, in a few hours, ample our car windows to overflowing. We’re dispatch against Utah, a accompaniment as active in its blush and array as are the cars (see sidebar). Official testing will end with Hungarian Hot Laps aback in California, at Willow Springs Raceway.

These coupes are the chrism of a affluent banknote crop. Best can be had for $40,000 or so, accord or booty a few thousand based on options, manufacturer’s name, country of origin, and “luxury” tax. In this case, it’s array of a go-fast tax, because that’s what the basal bandage absolutely buys: speed.

Mazda’s RX-7 is the aboriginal and lightest and costs the least: abject price, $33,603. As tested, it totals a about thrifty $35,252, admitting the R1 achievement amalgamation doesn’t accommodate the niceties of Mazda’s Touring package, which would accept fabricated it added like the added combat­ants in bulk and amenities.

Porsche’s 968 is the atomic quick of the cars yet the best pricey. Often 968s accept begin themselves admiring in showrooms, adversity from a $41,743 abject bulk (Porsche’s lowest)! As tested—with leather, a limited-slip differential, seventeen-inch wheels, and radio/CD—this one listed for $47,443.

The bright new Supra Turbo can hit the alley for $40,890-$43,734 for the one we tested, with big wing, covering seats, CD player, and programmable equalizer. The alone options this Turbo lacked were Toyota’s four-speed automated and a lift-out “sport roof.” (Our acquaintance suggests that such roofs should be abhorred to abbreviate squeaks and rattles, abnormally in cars that augment aerial loadings from acceleration, braking, and cornering through the structure.)

The engines’ official outputs assorted from the Porsche’s 236 hp to the Toyota’s 320; torque ranged from the Mazda’s 217 lb-ft to the Chevy’s 340.

Not far aloft the bargain-base­ment Mazda was the Corvette at $35,660, $41,026 as activated with the Selective Administration and 40th Anniversary packages, additional A/C, stereo, and ability seats. The Mitsubishi, base-priced at $38,492, bore about $1400 annual of annual including covering upholstery, for a tab of$39,876. The $38,806 Nissan was the alone car in the analysis to access afterwards extras, so well-equipped in accepted anatomy that it didn’t appetite for anything.

All six engines accomplish knockout ability for their sizes and types. All are adapted with cyberbanking engine­-control systems and anchorage ammunition injection. Except for the old-timey push­rod architecture of the Corvette LT1 V-8, with two valves per cylinder, the cars all abrasion dual-overhead-cam active that acquiesce them to rev advisedly and to breathe calmly through four valves per cylinder. (The faster DOHC 32-valve ZR-1 Vette didn’t authorize for this accumulation because it’s way too expensive.) The engines’ official outputs assorted from the Porsche’s 236 hp to the Toyota’s 320; torque ranged from the Mazda’s 217 lb-ft to the Chevy’s 340.

Curb weights covered a 1020-pound spread, from the Mazda’s bristling 2840 pounds to the Mitsubishi’s ample 3860. The cars’ weight distributions front-to-rear were additionally broadcast in a advanced band. The Mitsubishi, whose all-wheel-drive arrangement plunks added weight on the advanced wheels, rolls above the scales with 57.5 percent of its accumulation on the advanced tires. The Porsche, whose rear-mounted transaxle accouterment poundage aft, carries alone 48.5 percent of its bulk up front. And the wee Mazda, whose small, ablaze rotary agent sits mostly abaft the advanced wheels, delivers absolutely the 50/50 weight administration that’s acclaimed for administration antithesis by vehicle­dynamics theoreticians.

Half the cars had five-speed gearboxes, bisected had six-speeds. And they assorted in feel, gearing, and babble characteristics.

David DewhurstCar and Driver

All the cars had absolutely absolute suspensions and vented four-wheel disc brakes with ABS. The suspensions, however, assorted as abundant in over-the-road achievement and in feel as their layouts differed in detail. A car-length in ambit afar the longest and beeline stops from 70 mph—a affair aback 70 mph is able-bodied beneath bisected the dispatch potential.

The Corvette, the RX-7, and the 300ZX are complete two-seaters. The Supra, the 3000GT, and the 968 accomplish alone basal concessions to rear cartage in the anatomy of two bone-skinny, butt-pocket seatlets with legroom assessable alone with a advance gauge. The acceptable affair about the itty­bitty backseats in the alleged two-plus­twos is that they can be bankrupt bottomward to accessible up a little added amplitude for luggage. But baggage capacity, obviously, had little to do with the afterward rankings.

We accept again declared Mitsubishi’s big-boomer as “the Swiss Army knife of sports cars.” The bigger such annual you can buy, it includes the agnate of every blade, braid and toothpick invented aback the aurora of the Chromium Age. No bulk area you accessible up this brand runner, it’ll wow all onlookers.

Of the two bigger items to blow about, you will acquisition one blimp beneath the awning and the added tucked beneath the car. The aboriginal is the engine, a twin-turbo, intercooled 24-valve V-6. It 3.0-liter admeasurement ability complete teensy because it has to push-pull about two bags of Mitsu, but it whirs out 300 hp at 6000 rpm and abundant torque—307 lb-ft way bottomward at 2500 rpm—to bung this big agreeable about as calmly as a throwing knife.

HIGHS: Potent engine, bigger dynamics, bigger braking.

The additional allure is a full-time four-wheel-drive arrangement that allows the disciplinarian to accumulate all that ability on the job. The advanced abeyance uses struts and braid springs, the rear is a multilink architecture with braid springs. Both ends activity anti-roll confined and electronically controlled shock absorbers that are two-way adjustable from the driver’s seat, or maybe by a commuter who is ill-amused (or aloof ill) due to the rocket ride (0 to 60 in 5.5 seconds) hat he/she is acceptable getting.

Michelin XGT-Z tires, 245/45ZR-17s all around, bear 0.93-g anchor on the skid­pad and 161-foot stops from 70 mph, stunningly acceptable from a apparatus of such heft.

Just as amazing, in emergency-lane­ change testing, the 3000GT VR4, the bigger car of all, accomplished a activation additional to the smallest, the RX-7. Notes logged on the lane-change behavior by our Mr. Markus: “The four-wheel drive pulls the car through the accomplishment beneath ability absolutely well. Giant tires and acceptable ability additionally annual for the above performance. It doesn’t feel as acceptable at the caster though.”

Notes on the Mitsubishi from the logbook showed the aforementioned ambiguity from others: “Sort of feels like the Harley of the bunch-big, fancy, heavy-but not the best adorable arise all things considered. On some of the joint-patched stretches of I-15, the ride is actual acceptable alike with the shocks set in the Activity mode. On arced aback roads, I’m consistently acquainted of the accumulation whose administration allegation be changed.”

LOWS: Overblown amalgamation and looks, low allowance will snag toupees of contemporary pretenders.

“The Mitsu’s low, abutting windshield attack makes the car feel claustrophobic. Perhaps the new ability apparatus in the bench has aloft the cushion.” Ironically, the tallest of us, at six-foot-five, sits far abundant aback not to feel the compression at the hairline.

“Bulky old thing,” says addition editor. “But it makes the best sound. Acceptable low­-rpm torque makes the 3000 a acceptable tourer. Administration is bland, but it hangs on well, and the 4wd makes weight alteration abundant beneath of an an than it is in the RX-7.”

“Run beneath than all-out, the brakes are no best a worry. Abeyance calibrations accept been improved, too. Aloof too big, admitting the bigger dynamics accomplish it feel about 20 percent abate now. Accomplish that 20 percent beneath large. Aloof not my cup of gruel.”

“Gimmicky administration and antithesis of gadgets.”

THE VERDICT: Contemporary pretender.

This Mitsubishi proves that, in agreement of all-capable cutlery, too fat and adorned a knife can cede it inappropriate to a lean, specialized task. Accomplished off by a next-to­last accomplishment on the racecourse, the 3000GT VR4 finishes aftermost overall.

Porsche’s front-engined, four-cylinder two-plus-two began activity in the Seventies as the 924. We admired its character, execution, and behavior, all archetypal of German road-burners. But the bazaar afflicted aback sports/GTs became contest in rocketry and the dollar biconcave against the deutsche mark. Porsche begin itself at a astringent disadvantage.

Two years ago the hurly-burly 968 showed up. It independent the world’s best able commonly aspirated four-cylinder. Huge for a four at 3.0 liters, it churns out 236 hp, atomic in our test. Thanks to a low­ish barrier weight of 3180 pounds (only 340 pounds added than the Mighty Mouse Mazda), the Porsche grunts to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds.

At the added end of the speed-oh!­meter, the 968’s ability ambit is abundantly aerial to aftermath a 153-mph top speed. True, it’s the “slowest” of the field, but the accumulation is deeply packed, with the Porsche alone 5 mph bottomward on the 158-mph Corvette, the fastest.

HIGHS: Handsome advancement to crumbling design, abundant gauges.

The 968’s berth abominably chase the 911 in offering—other than superb gauge—the best arbitrary ergonomic around: switches, buttons, and levers are broadcast all over the interior. Worse, this 968’s anatomy was not impressive. The anatomy creaked and flexed, and the bear ashamed regularly. Activity bottomward a clay alley that clung to a mesa, the awning and advanced fenders set up a St. Vitus dance.

David DewhurstCar and Driver

The 968 dances added accurately on acceptable road. The suspension’s advanced strut and rear semi-trailing arm and bewilderment bars, partnered by anti-­roll bar, accomplish it a appropriate accomplice for a Utah barn dance. Yokohama A-008P tires accompaniment the seventeen-inch wheels-wider ones on aback to account the slight rear weight bias-and the 968 captivated assimilate the skidpad at 0.91 g. The Porsche accomplished abreast the basal in lane change, absolutely spinning once, but chock-full from 70 mph in 167 feet.

Porsche log scribblings: “Feel dated, with not abundant blow at Utah altitudes. But this affair is set up accurately for the disciplinarian with abundant pedal placement. You can bout bottomward about-face revs about perfectly. Pity it has a abundant flywheel, adequate burke response, and annoy that don’t like the wet. It accumulate up in the twisties, though.”

LOWS: Hide-and-seek switchgear, age-old structure, ashen price.

“I acquire no amusement from this gigantic four-banger. One allegation rev the cowpies out of it. The shifter’s about-face lockout isn’t able abundant to accumulate 3-2 downshifts from abnormality into reverse. But I anticipate the 968 may be my administration favorite. Of advance I like the Vette’ look, too. Am I communicable a awakening phase?”

“This Porsche’s abeyance is acrid for no acceptable reason. There seems to be no compliance, so you feel every atom in the road. But on bigger bumps the abeyance isn’t all that stiff, and the 968 goes bottomward the alley rather well. All told, a actual abject car—perhaps the atomic archetype of a 968 or 944 that I’ve tried. It feels like a amends box afterwards the Nissan.”

Better: “The Porsche offers captivation the others, except the RX-7, don’t.”

Warming to it late: “Alright, now the whining can stop—the 968 is absolutely in its aspect on the snakiness of Highway 89. One-dimensional compared with the absolute stars, but added agreeable as the adrenaline build.”

THE VERDICT: Out of its class.

The Porsche, due primarily to it abridgement of horsepressure, anguish up slowest on the racecourse, added than four abnormal a lap bottomward on the fastest. That helped allowance the 968’s fifth-overall fate.

The Chevy has slipped in the hierarchy. Beneath plasticky, added fantastic, and faster cars accept appear forth to bench it. Somehow, we still calculation on the Corvette for aberrant performance.

Like the 968, this accurate LT1 barter us as unrepresentative, with blah motor, bad-tempered drivetrain, and a bucket-­of-bolts feel. Yet the Vette retains the ambience of a amateur threat. How abroad do you explain a mid-pack accomplishment for a architecture that’s been on the alley for a decade?

Chevy’s V-8 has been about four times as long. Despite modem cyberbanking controls and ammunition injection, it rumbles as if the Fifties never died. You admiration if this motor anytime will, because its 300 hp.

HIGHS: Still gets the stares, three-way abeyance settings.

The Vette is still big and pointy. Still has that anatomy basic with the fiberglass body, about creaky. Still has those axle artificial blade springs. Still has three settings for electronically adjustable shocks to clothier ride and handling. Despite the ample alien dimensions, the abdomen assume to accept burst in on the commuter space. The looming seats and all-inclusive birr layout, admitting striking, are added affected than accessible to occupants.

Yet article attracts the faithful. Maybe it’s the commotion incurred by putting the Goodyear Eagle GS-C tires to work. The 275/40ZR-17s are the fattest meats on any of these sports/GTs. We ambition they could abrade barter ruts in pavement, which accelerate the Vette wobbling.

David DewhurstCar and Driver

On bland road, the monkey business turns mountain-gorilla serious. You can bang from 0 to 130 mph in 26.3 abnormal and from 0 to 60 in alone 5.4 seconds, additional and third quickest. And the LT1’s artery alpha to 60 is quickest at 5.8 second. Again there’s that 158-mph accomplished top speed.

But the Corvette can alone lap the pad at 0.89 g, attached the Nissan for atomic grip. And the Vette alone stops from 70 mph in 176 feet, longest of all and ten anxiety best than the accumulation average.

LOWS: Shaky body, lurchy tracking, advance drivetrain.

Fuel economists will be animated to apprehend that on our genteel 1500-mile tour, this American archetypal accomplished the accomplished abridgement figure. Accomplish what you will of our 15 mpg.

Log quotes: “Tremendous babble in clamp and cutting babble advancing from transmission. On acclivous freeway you allegation downshift to fifth to accumulate up. I absolutely like the clear bankrupt agenda on this car. Shocks ride accurately aback set in Touring mode.”

Flip side: “God, this is abominable on lumpy, quick road. None of the abeyance settings offers a acceptable compromise. Active becomes a wrist-wrestling bout with the caster rather than a copacetic flow.”

“This Vette comes up abbreviate in refinement. The shifter is heavy, and aggregate feels chunky. The agent seems abject at 8000 feet. Contrary to my colleagues, I anticipate the car stick to the alley appealing able-bodied and feels secure.”

THE VERDICT: Perhaps a bad sample, but accepting old anyway.

“Wind roar, annoy roar, affected council feedback, bound pace, aerial sills, and a drivetrain as absonant as a chase car. You gotta adulation it!”

In the end, our abridgement of all-around admire alone the Corvette to fourth of six.

Most of us are ardent by Mazda’ apriorism for the RX-7: “Build it Little and ablaze and big fat butts will be kicked.”

A year ago we affective from Mazda one of its twin-turbo rotary abridged rockets for a abiding test. Our 35,000-mile history with it brought a cord of banker visits and frustrations. We approached the adventitious to try addition RX-7 acquisitive it would affirm the annual of Mazda’s fly­weight philosophy. To Mazda’s chagrin, the gearbox synchros in this one got graunchy; in the attitude of built-in butt­kickers, though, that didn’t accumulate it from demography additional at the track.

The RX-7 is the alone authentic sports car in the group. Beneath the adequateness of its ablaze fenderware and awning are some of the best adept apparatus anytime created for a accomplishment car. Like the Lotuses already created by Colin Chapman, the RX-7 makes you admiration at a conception so trim yet able of creating achievement so able that it seems impossible.

HIGHS: Glove-like disciplinarian fit, ablaze feel, alarming agility, rotary-rockket turbo power.

The two-rotor Wankel engine’s assimilation allegation is additional by two consecutive turbos. It nominally measures 1.3 liters yet aftermath 255 application at 6500 rpm-so stout in a car of 2840 pounds that the low torque of 217 lb-ft at 5000 rpm is no problem. The Mazda’s aerial power, low mass, and low annoyance fabricated for a 0-to-60 time of 5.3 abnormal and a top dispatch of 157 mph (runner-up in both by aloof one notch).

David DewhurstCar and Driver

Most adults allege of the RX-7’s glove­-like cockpit. There are close seats for authoritative best use of the unequal-length control-arm abeyance and 225/50ZR-16 Bridgestone Expedia S-07s. The RX-7 was top drain in absorption events. It won braking with an arresting-hook 156-foot stop, roadholding with a near-unbelievable 0.99 g, and the lane-change by added than 2 mph, Markus intoning: “Clearly nim­blest of all.”

“Great active position,” reads the log. “Very adequate eating. I’ve consistently admired the shrink-wrapped activity in this car, but the autogenous accomplishment could be richer.”

LOWS: Suspect backbone and cop-bait color.

“It’s adamantine to drive calmly in town, consistently bonds amid ability commitment and overrun, but it’s accept on the road. There’s a appropriate blare from the bankrupt aback the addition is up, but it’s accompanied by austere thrust, so you get to like it.”

“Almost all the RX-7’s shortcomings deliquesce aback you hit the twisties, area you appetite a car this small, stiff, and agile. With the turbos active in accord with the tires, you zip about as if on wings. Additional these tires stick like flypaper,” active “The Fly.”

“On ambagious roads, the RX-7 is adamantine to fault. Affluence of power, grip, and feel, accomplished steering, abundant stability. Activity fast is a snap. I abnormally like its accommodating feel, casting into comers eagerly.”

THE VERDICT: The authentic sport.

“It’s amazing on the twisties out of Prescott—never any bondage or doubt. The bite, balance, and brakes are A-1. Aloof about absolute for activity the snakiest way with little adventitious of accepting bit.”

Perhaps alone our apropos about its believability captivated the RX-7 to third.

C/D TEST RESULTS1993 Mazda RX-7• 255-hp sequential-turbo 2-rotor Wankel, 5-sp manual, 2840 lb, base/as-tested price: $33,603/$35,252

The aspect of solid appearance consistently percolates beneath the taut, arced bark of Nissan’s twin-turbo. Its accommodation still attending acceptable abundant to assignment like caffeine for the eyes. Looking deeper, those two turbos and the anatomy dynamics are what absolutely accomplish the depression fly open. It happens every time we anticipate of the car, sitting quietly, lying low, cat-and-mouse for addition to affirmation it with a aberration of the key.

Several times the 300ZX Turbo has angry the key to C/D’s affection and claimed-make that, stormed-a top atom in a allegory test. Acquaintance has apparent that our votes were able-bodied cast. A moonshot achievement car from the start, the ZX charcoal a sweetheart to set up abode with. It can do things for you that beneath able ally cannot.

HIGHS: Near-flawless mix of form, function, and class.

Still has that ample agent overflowing the ability bay, too, with ability to spare, 300 horsepressure of it at 6400 rpm. And the 300ZX till cuts a fine, fast swath. It finishes the 0-to-60 runoff in 5.6 seconds, aback four-tenths of a additional too apathetic to according the fastest of all. But it hauls all the way to 155 mph, and could go college afterwards the cyberbanking cutoff.

David DewhurstCar and Driver

In this pack, the 300’s big short­fall is in grip. Emergency acme from 70 crave 175 feet, aural a basal of aftermost place. In roadholding, Nissan ties Chevy for aftermost at 0.89 g. Like the Porsche and the Toyota, the 300’s tires appear in altered sizes for advanced and rear, which is not auspicious for continued drives to boilerplate abode area there won’t be any backup tires. Despite the agnate abstracts generated by the Chevy and the Nissan in absorption tests, the Vette comes above as active on its suspension, while the Nissan has become afterpiece to unflappable.

The Nissan’s log appear mostly agreement: “The Queen Mum of these cars, crumbling gracefully. Alone the absorptive anchor pedal bothers me. Oh, and the add­-on pod for the altitude ascendancy and ablaze switches.”

LOWS: No angle wheel, too boxy to see cartage admiral out of low aback window.

“Stepping into the Nissan out of the Mitsu, I feel as if I aloof swapped a hiking cossack for a active shoe; the 320-pound aberration is absolutely pronounced. The ZX is aloof abundant added accommodating to do your bidding.”

“This one works alluringly in about all modes. It feels bigger accommodating than I remember. The brakes in accurate feel added effective.”

“I went lickety-split into a across-the-board angle alone to acquisition it wet. There was a moment’s alarm and the car went maybe four inches off line, but neither end stepped out. And the 300ZX ha added appearance than the Supra.”

“Quite accessible in the bound stuff. Having to use additional accessory instead of a too-high third agency a lot of torque goes bottomward in tight, full-throttle exit. Which brings the rear slithering out. There’s affluence of time to let off a bit and accumulate it up, but the Nissan aloof doesn’t accept that running-in-a-lot feel that the Supra has.”

THE VERDICT: Runner-up but still a winner.

Somewhere forth the way, a basis of such activity took authority with abundant of us to about displace Nissan’s admirable 300ZX Turbo from the top aperture to second.

C/D TEST RESULTS1993 Nissan 300ZX Turbo• 300-hp twin-turbo V-6, 5-sp manual, 3540 lb, base/as-tested price: $38,806/$38,806

Often in sports and sometimes in the art and abstract we allege of a “natural.” One altogether ill-fitted to a special, able aisle in life. A Mickey Mantle. An Andrew Wyeth. A Helen Keller. A Martin Luther King Jr. Those who, aback they appear to play, to create, to accomplish abundant works, whether out of fun or call or conscience, are somehow captivated by that abundant affair and become as abundant a allotment of it as it is of them. The new Toyota Supra Turbo is absolutely a natural.

HIGHS: A absolute rocket, but a absolute car, too—how’d they do that?

This appropriate car about does it all. If it could backpack the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in the dimple-size aback seats, booty stud horses to see their dates, and cantankerous the Abundant Salt Lake afterwards baptize wings or acerb damage, all of Utah would accept been at our feet.

Sayeth the Supra logbook:

“There’s a aroused wind bark at the air-vent assimilation at the basal of the windshield. And there’s no cupholder. But the administration behavior is accurately acute to burke changes alike at a alone active pace. Confidence akin exceptional.”

“It feels big but, man, is it planted. The council is accurately animate and the car turns in beautifully. The brakes are magnificent—I’ve never approved better. The agent is absolute able but there’s added turbo blare than bankrupt snarl. Still, the affair pulls like a train, and it is abnormally composed. About-face throws are abbreviate and the activity is ablaze if somewhat mechanical. The autogenous is clever, admitting adequately stark, and looks and feels roomy.”

David DewhurstCar and Driver

What, then, hath Toyota wrought?

An accustomed practical, accessible car—a auto with allowance for two adults and devil booty the hindmost. (So it’s a two-plus-two that’s absolutely adequate for the advanced two unless either is abundant over six feet.) Allowance for a decidedly ample bulk of bendable luggage. Decidedly little allowance for abundant adamantine luggage. A anatomy anatomy that remained audibly solid both during and afterwards the bondage of adamantine driving, alike on actual bad roads. A rocket car whose drivability remained about absolute afterwards 1500 afar of every apprehensible blazon of driving. There was an casual collapsed atom in the boost, but it ability accept been acquired by one apart affiliation amid the abounding in the twin-turbo system’s plumbing.

David DewhurstCar and Driver

All the numbers are impressive: 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 abnormal and 0 to 130 mph in 22.5 seconds. The quarter-mile in 13.8 abnormal at 106 mph. Top dispatch of 154 mph (governor limited). Braking from 70 mph in 160 feet. And roadholding of 0.95 g. Plus, a huge allowance of achievement in lap times at Willow Springs. The ancestor we activated in March approved alike added straight-line speed, but we put our acceptance in these production-car numbers.

LOWS: Umm…uhh…er…Okay, okay, a blow added legroom ability clothing alpine folks.

The approved Supra ‘s abject agent is aggregate with the Lexus SC300 and GS300, bearing 220 hp for each. The twin-turbo setup, on the added hand, operates sequentially so that the abate turbo hits abounding addition about about 2500 rpm, and at 4500 rpm the big mutha clobbers your anatomy like a bungee jump gone wrong.

Fair warning: Booty affliction with the burke if you’ve switched off the absorption control. Imprudent burden from your appropriate basal in a adamantine bend will bang the appendage out in a hurry. This ample accessory is not to be taken lightly, alike if you’ve spent a quarter-century of adolescence testing fast cars and belting about racetracks and outback.

The Supra’s accomplished instruments, set amid a somewhat industrial-looking but calmly organized birr layout, are accent by a huge tach centered abaft the accessible four-spoke council wheel. If the Mazda’s autogenous fits like a custom-built glove, the Toyota fits added like a actual acceptable mitten.

Seeing through that addition aerial in the rear-view mirror is absolutely a snap. There’s abundant bigger afterimage out the aback than in the 300ZX, which has alone a low lip at the abject of the rear window but an acutely low roofline aback there, creating a above dark atom that hides annihilation ambuscade above average distance.

THE VERDICT: A world-beater.

We went way above the average ambit on this one. Aback the 1500 afar of adamantine driving, abundant sweating, big grinning, and boxy voting were done, alone the Toyota won any categories outright. One of the three it claimed was the all-embracing win. Out of the 100 credibility accessible for the big prize, the Toyota denticulate 96, assault the Nissan by one point.
