Why We Like It

Carrying on a tradition for performance and quality established in 1979 with the first Celica-based Supra, the ‘Mk IV’ generation debuted for 1994 and carried on until 1998, closing out a highly respected chapter in Japanese sports cars to the collective chagrin of enthusiasts everywhere. While the ‘Supra’ nameplate always heralded high performance, the ‘Mk IV’ Supra is particularly potent and delivers Supercar-worthy performance with 320hp on tap from its twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC, 24-valve inline 6-cylinder powerplant. Underpinnings were engineered to match, resulting in phenomenal handling and driving dynamics.

This approach to performance was not new, with its use by Mitsubishi and Kawasaki on Japan’s extremely lightweight Navy and Army fighter planes of WWII, which delivered uncanny speed and deadly “on-your-six” maneuverability for any opponent unwary or unlucky enough to engage one in a high-G dogfight. While the Supra’s lightweight hollow rear spoiler was not all that earth-shattering in the ‘90s, how about those hollow carpet fibers? Are you kidding me?! To this Zero260 contributor, that’s seriously mind-blowing tech!

For the sake of brevity, this awesome black paint over black leather ‘94 Supra Turbo comes to market with just a bit over 39k miles from new and known history with just 3-owners. Clean Carfax and AutoCheck reports accompany this prime quality Supra and the seller states that the car’s stellar history is confirmed by those essential documents. The seller also advises that the car retains all 11 factory-installed VIN tags, and select upgrades are unobtrusive while raising power output to a reported 400+ horsepower.

Valuation Verdict

According to Hagerty’s current price guide, a “normal” 1995 Toyota Supra Turbo should bring anywhere from $60k for a good #3 car, $95k for an excellent #2, and $139k for a #1 concours-worthy specimen. This example carries an asking price in line with a #2 example, which seems pretty fair to us. These cars are absolute modern legends and this one is impeccably clean and compelling, driving us to declare it ‘Fair Market’.
