Spotted Toyota Supra 1985 this morning

Recommended Posts

That’s an 86 pre facelift MA70 Supra Liftback. 85 was the last of the Celica Supra which are a lot more square shaped and even rarer. 

Very nice spot though 👍🏻

Thanks for correcting me Barry.

When I visited the Toyota showroom here in the end of 1985 I had spotted a Toyota Celica and this Supra, could have been the launch of the 86 model. Before that I used to think Celica Supra was 1 model, after visiting the showroom all these years I thought Celica and Supra were always 2 separate models with Celica being the 4 cylinder sports car and Supra was the 6 cylinder monster with twin turbo that could give head to the Skyline.

Yeah it must have been pre launch that you saw.

The celica was the original car then they introduced the celica supra in 78 which was sold alongside the celica up to 85 and was basically a bigger version of the celica with similar styling. In 86 the supra dropped the celica name and the celica and supra became 2 different things.
