The Toyota A70 Supra freshly broke from the Celica nameplate, and went on to become quite the JDM star.
The original Toyota Supra, which made its debut in 1978 and is referred to as a "confirmed Japanese sports car classic" by its ardent supporters,
shared many characteristics with its elder brother, the Toyota Celica.
Perhaps this explains why the Celica and Supra are frequently mistaken for them other.
The official name of the vehicle, the Celica Supra, which was a larger and broader version of the Celica series with more upscale equipment, added to the confusion.
It was the first Toyota car to provide cruise control to American customers when it was introduced in the US in 1979.
While the Celica and Supra may have looked and sounded identical, the Supra was a star because it offered a selection of more potent six-pot engines instead of the four-pots found in the Celica.
Toyota decoupled the Celica from the Supra in the middle of 1986 and unveiled the third-generation Supra as a standalone brand.
This rear-wheel-drive sports vehicle, code-named the A70 Supra, became an instant hit and is now regarded as a JDM classic.
The double-wishbone suspension in the front and back of the A70 Supra made it the first car to provide its devoted followers with anti-lock brakes.
Let's learn more about the Supra, which is every JDM-dream er's car, since it has a tonne of outstanding attributes that contribute to its reputation for being bulletproof.
