    Why on earth would you buy a Supra?

    Well it's been a while since I p1ssed off a member on here so thought I'd just come in and p1ss the entire club off, make up for lost time and all that

    Anyway, despite the above, this is more of a conversational/debate inducing piece than it may appear.

    Yes, I do still love my Supra, I've had 4 of them and over the past 9+ years, I've never been without one, I got my 1st at 19 and now I'm not far off being 30, they have seen me through all the ups and downs, from a fresh faced teen not knowing where he stood in the world with zero responsibilities and living with his parents to someone who.........well, I have my own house now .

    Back when I first got mine, the Supra was in a league of it's own, it was fast, it still looked up to date to a degree, people loved them and due to the tune-ability it had every quick car trembling when one appeared, there had only been 3 Fast and Furious films and modified Japanese cars still had some kudos to them, but the worlds moved on.

    I cling onto my Supra for one reason, nostalgia of what once was, but what actually makes people want a Supra these days? Speed? Buy a GTR, hell, an Audi RS6 Avant will destroy most singles with a remap. Looks? Subjective, but let's be honest, it's no Ferrari, imo the RX7 has always been a prettier car. Iconic? maybe, but no more than the RX7, classic Impreza, Skyline and really, it's the R34 GTR that holds the torch on that one. Handling? spend a chunk and it's alright at best.

    There is just a lot of cars that are better straight out the box in nigh on every department and can even be used as daily's with ease.

    So, my question to you, why do you like the Supra? Where does it even fit in?

    I've been having this internal battle, the Supra is definitely moving into the realm of classic car; the only reason for keeping them about is nostalgia. 9 times out of 10 I prefer hooning it about in the Lexus, but then I get a reaction from someone on the street and it reminds me what owning a Supra is about. In my mind, buying a Supra is a way of expressing a passion for cars in a way that having an M3 (or whatever) doesn't express. I think the GTR falls into this category too, but they are prohibitively expensive at the point of entry for some.

    I agree with some of your points actually, I also think the rx7 is better looking but that has a $#@! engine.

    I agree the R34 is more iconic but the Supra has to be second in line.

    Speed you said GTR or RS6 avant? I agree but Jesus Christ I ain't got that kind of money. They are 50kish? My Supra cost me 9k and I've probably spent 10 on it and it'll have over 600bhp soon. You can't beat that power with the reliability it gives, much more reliable and tuneable that an R34 or Rx7. Whilst only falling slightly behind in the other two category.

    The supras a great all round car, you can have 700bhp, drive it reliably every day, sounds great, looks great (in my opinion) and it is iconic. Can't think of many other 'affordable' cars you can say all that about.

    Mine still makes me feel like a kid whenever I drive it. Hell, even when I just look at it it gives me that tingling feeling.

    It's hard to put your finger on the one thing that draws us all to the Supra because it has so many things going for it.

    The road presence it still has to this day even against the new cars released this year is proof that this car is something special.
