3. Toyota Supra
Here comes another iconic cars from Japan, the Toyota Supra which is produced by the company since 1978 to 2002 (same production year of Mazda RX7). Interestingly, the styling used for Toyota is merely inspired from Toyota Celica but it was both longer and wider. Starting in mid-1986, the A70 Supra became a separate model from the Celica. In turn, Toyota also stopped using the prefix Celica and began just calling the car Supra. Owing to the similarity and past of the Celica’s name, it is frequently mistaken for the Supra, and vice versa. The Supra also traces much of its roots back to the Toyota 2000GT with the main instance being its engine. The first three generations were offered with a direct descendant to the Toyota Crown’s and 2000GT’s M engine. All four generations of Supra produced have an inline 6-cylinder engine. The last generation of Toyota Supra is powered by Toyota 2JZ-GTE Straight Six turbocharged engine which is said to generate 276 horsepower and 318 lb•ft of torque. The turbocharged variant could achieve 0–60 mph in as low as 4.6 seconds and 1/4-mile (402 m) in 13.1 seconds at 109 mph (175 km/h).
