Unlike previous models, which tried to provide more premium features, the fourth-gen car put an emphasis on performance.

Compared to the outgoing car, the new Supra was lighter thanks to the use of aluminum for the hood, front cross member, oil pan, transmission pan and various suspension components.

Small details like a magnesium steering wheel and plastic gas tank were also employed to save weight.

Toyota stopped importing the Supra to the US following the 1998 model year because of low demand.
