For its third-generation, the Supra parted ways with the Celica and became its own standalone model in the Toyota lineup.
While the Celica went on to become a front-wheel-drive sport compact, the Supra stayed with rear-wheel drive.
As with previous cars, an inline six-cylinder continued to power the Supra.
When the car launched as a 1986.5 model following production delays, power came from a 3.0-liter six-cylinder with 200 horsepower and 196 pound-feet of torque.
For 1987, a turbocharged 3.0-liter engine was added to the lineup delivering 230 ponies and 240 pound-feet of torque.
Transmission choices for both engines were a five-speed manual and four-speed automatic.
Turbo models came standard with sports package that included a limited-slip differential, adjustable suspension and headlamp washers. The sport package was an option for non-turbocharged Supras.
A targo roof was also an option on the third-generation Supra.
When the third-generation Supra launched for the 1986.5 model year, it carried a base price of $18,610.
When the Supra Turbo joined the lineup in 1987 it started at $24,155.
