The 1990 Toyota Supra features 232 horsepower at 5,600 RPMs, and the 1998 model has 225 horsepower at 6,000 RPMs. A newer model anticipated in 2017 is expected to have more than 350 horsepower as a plug-in hybrid. These horsepower figures are based on brand-new models with factory specifications. The Supra was a Toyota staple in the 1980s and 1990s.
Edmunds explains that there are three generations of the original Supra. The cars weigh around 3,500 pounds and go from zero to 60 in about seven seconds. Early models have approximately 145 horsepower, before getting bumped up to 160 and then 180 horsepower in subsequent generations. The cars feature manual transmissions.
The Supra features a six-cylinder engine as a spin-off from the Toyota Celica of the late 1970s. The car has advanced designs such as electronic fuel injection, anti-lock brakes and a turbocharged engine. The Supra ceased production in 1998 until Toyota announced a new model.
As of September 2014, the newer Toyota Supra reportedly has a four-cylinder engine made from BMW and three electric motors, according to Motor Authority. The weight of the car is about 3,000 pounds with four-wheel drive. The car is expected to be finalized by 2017 alongside a new BMW hybrid.
