The Toyota supra GT car has a long history. It was produced by Toyota motor corporation way back in 1978. The design of this car was derived from the Toyota Celica but the Toyota Supra GT car was a little bit longer as compared to the Celica version. By 1986 the Toyota Supra entered into the third phase with the production of Mark III which became its own model whose design was no longer based on the Celica.

This third-generation was assembled in Tahara. The car traces its roots to the Toyota 2000GT with the focus being on its engine. The first three generations of this car had a direct connection to the Toyota Crown. The car had an inline 6 cylinder engine with similar interior aspects.
