In February 1986, Toyota was ready to introduce its next version of the Supra. The bonds between the Celica and the Supra were cut, and the Celica changed to a front-wheel-drive layout, while the Supra kept its rear-wheel-drive layout. The engine was updated to a more powerful 3.0-litre inline-six engine rated at 200 horsepower. Initially only available with naturally aspirated engines, a turbocharged version was added in the 1987 model year, which includes a factory engine oil cooler.

This beautiful 1989 Supra includes modifications to increase power output to 232 horsepower. The engine mounts and brace were also revised, and the protective body molding was also changed by taking away the steel reinforcement. This made the molding lighter and prevents any rusting. All passengers received three-point seat belts to replace the previous years' two-point lap belts, and new taillights, side mirrors, turn signals, fog lights, and steering wheel round out the 1989 upgrades. Youll immediately notice the impeccable custom paint job that fades from bright red flames to subtle orange ghost flames heading toward the rear. Its an impressive custom look that everyone notices. Add in a rear spoiler and custom Center Line alloy wheels, and everyone will know that youve arrived in a very potent custom vehicle. Inside, the gray cloth buckets, carpets, and door panels all look great, and the previous owner added billet pedals, custom gauges, and a sweet Pioneer CD stereo with subwoofer to the mix. The driver will enjoy all the convenience of power steering, power brakes, power windows and power locks, and the passenger - well, they get air-conditioning and a big grin while hanging on for dear life. With the five-speed manual gearbox, this Supra will certainly be a ton of fun to drive.
