Toyota Supra Motors For Sale Affordable Prices

The Toyota Supra Started an Auto Revolution in the US
Back in 1970 Toyota was trying to identify the ingredients that would make them a US auto powerhouse. The innovative-ness and creativity of the Japanese auto makers was just beginning to surface when the first Celica was introduced to the Japanese market. The Celica was a semi-clone of the 1967 2000GT. GotEngines.com/motors sells Toyota Supra Motors For Sale Affordable Prices.

Toyota paid its respect to the 2000GT by using the name on later Celica and Supra models. In 1971 the first Celica ST arrived in the US. It was equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission and a 1.9 litre 8R-C SOHC 4-cylinder engine. In 1972 the larger 18R-C Supra motor replace the original. Sales increased even though the engine lost 11 horsepower due to emission control standards.

In 1974 the GT model was introduced, and in 1975 the 2.2 liter redesigned 20R Supra engine replaced the outdated 18R Supra engine. In 1976 Celica was named, “Import car Of The Year” since it had Mustang like features, especially when the hatchback was introduced. In 1978 the first 2.6 liter, 110 horsepower inline 6-cylinder Supra engine was under the hood, but that heavy weight engine didn’t get the high marks it was designed to receive.

Toyota Knew It Had a Winner in the Supra Motor
Toyota continue to redesign the Supra motor. By 1984 the Supra engine could hit 60 mph in 8.6 seconds, which thrilled the Celica groupies that were hooked on Toyota’s ponycar. A Celica convertible was introduced in 1985 and in 1986 Toyota decided to split the Supra engine. Toyota introduced a Celica engine and a Supra engine. The Celica engine was a front-wheel drive engine, and the new Supra engine became the S series, which replaced the original R series.

During the 1990s the Camry became a superstar and the 5S-FE Supra engine played a big role in its success. In 1993 a new Supra engine hits the market as a twin-turbo 320 horsepower beauty with a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission. The VVT-i Supra engine enter the market in 1999. It helped Toyota maintain their stature in the US auto market, and it continues to play that role.
