    MKIII Production Numbers 86.5-92

    1986.5 Toyota Supra

    The third generation Supra was introduced in 1986.5 as a free standing model, officially separating it from the Celica. Whereas the Celica became a front wheel drive sport coupe, the Supra retained its image as a rear-wheel drive sports/GT car. The new Supra would continue to move upscale and become a showcase for Toyota technology. Originally slated as a 1986 model, production delays caused the model to actually be introduced mid year (hence the 1986.5 designation). The all new Supra was powered by a 3.0 liter DOHC inline six cylinder engine rated at 200 bhp. Notable features included an electronically controlled independent suspension (called the Toyota Electronic Modulated Suspension - TEMS), and a removable Sport-Roof panel (Targa top).
    Production: 33,283
    Engines: 3.0 I6 200 bhp.

    1987 Toyota Supra

    The first Supra Turbo was introduced in 1987. The inter-cooled, turbo charged version of the 3.0 liter inline 6 cylinder engine boosted power to 230 bhp and 246 lb-ft. The Turbo model also included an engine oil cooler and integrated rear spoiler. The sports package, which was standard on the Turbo and optional on the base model, included a limited slip differential (LSD), TEMS, and headlamp wahers. A new Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) was optional on both models.
    Production: 29,907
    Engines: 3.0 I6 200 bhp. 3.0 I6 Turbo 230 bhp, 246 lb-ft.

    1988 Toyota Supra

    Only minor changes were in store for the 1988 Supra. The base interior was changed from vinyl to cloth. The engines received minor modifications to improve quietness. And the Beige/Brown two-tone paint option was droped.
    Production: 19,596
    Engines: 3.0 I6 200 bhp. 3.0 I6 Turbo 230 bhp, 246 lb-ft.

    1989 Toyota Supra

    The Supra received a freshening for 1989 with a new grille, air dam, taillights, and rear spoiler. The Turbo engine was further refined with intake, wastegate, and turbo modifications, good for increases of 2 bhp and 8 lb-ft. Speed sensitive power steering was added and the rear suspension rates were increased. The cruise control moved to the steering wheel spokes.
    Production: 14,544
    Engines: 3.0 I6 200 bhp. 3.0 I6 Turbo 232 bhp, 254 lb-ft.

    1990 Toyota Supra

    Only minor changes were in store for 1990. A driver's side airbag was made standard. The cruise control moved back to a column mounted stalk. Fluid filled engine mounts were added for smoothness and the power steering boost was trimmed for more feel at high speeds.
    Production: 6,419
    Engines: 3.0 I6 200 bhp. 3.0 I6 Turbo 232 bhp, 254 lb-ft.

    1991 Toyota Supra

    New five-spoke wheels with Goodyear GS-D Z-rated tires are made standard, along with ABS on Turbo models. An out-sliding power sunroof is made optional, the Sport Roof and pop-up sunroof are still available.
    Production: 3,623
    Engines: 3.0 I6 200 bhp. 3.0 I6 Turbo 232 bhp, 254 lb-ft.

    1992 Toyota Supra

    Year 1992 marked the last year of the third generation. The Automatic transmission shift points were revised. A ten-speaker stereo system with the ETR/Cassette/CD system was made optional.
    Production: 1,193
    Engines: 3.0 I6 200 bhp. 3.0 I6 Turbo 232 bhp, 254 lb-ft.

    To make this thread relavant..

    Does anyone know:

    - For the total #s of each year does that include JDM, USDM, and EDM models?
    - Are there any records of color, trim (hardtop/targa, turbo/NA, sport package, etc) so that we can narrow it down to, for example --> 89 turbo, ht, 5 spd, with a certain color and trim = 1/XXX

    Be curious to see how many are left in operational condition. I saw the world wide MKIII production numbers already. My guess is 20% are road worthy in the US, even less worldwide.

    Total Production Worldwide (Numbers will be off by a tiny bit because it only tells me the production number at the start of the month)


    MA70's Feb 1985 - Jan 1993
    162,455~

    GA70's Aug 1985 - Jan 1993
    59,674~

    JZA70's April 1990 - Jan 1993 (Japan Only)
    18,319~

    As far as your hardtop goes, anywhere outside the USA Hardtops are a dime a dozen, youll be hard pressed to find a Targa. Only Limited models came with a Targa in ex. JZA70 Limited, GA70 Limited, and MA70 Limited. All others were hardtops.

    I work at the Toyota plant in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. I'm trying to find out if I can use the stamped number on the rad support to find out some info about my car. That number is a tracking number within the plant. It gives information on production options.

    I know I can find out info/defects about any Corolla/Matrix/Lexus RX/Rav4, but I'm not sure about out of country and 18 year old cars.

    Anyone know of another way to find out what # your car is out of the total production?

    So I'm looking at this and it says in 1990 they came standard with airbags and the cruise control buttons were moved off of the steering wheel...my supra is a 1990 but it's got no driver side airbag and the cruise control is on the steering wheel, not on the dash. Does that mean the interior was swapped over or something, or is there something I'm missing?

    Airbags were standard for the USA in 1990, Canada didn't get them until 1992.

    This list is incomplete and inaccurate.

    If it was a MY1990 USA-destination car built in late-89 it's possible you thought it was an 89...

    Jeff - Don't forget to tell everyone that the mk3 had a 1993 model and that 1992 was not the last year for it like everyone seams to believe.

    1993 was the last production year, correct; 1992 was the last model year in North America.

    Yeah I noticed in the other thread where he posted this info it says the cruise control on airbag equiped cars was moved to a column mounted stalk.. but its a wheel mounted stalk. So essentially the cruise control has always been on the steering wheels in the mk3s.

    Jeff - So was the mk4 introduced here as a 1993 or 1993.5? And was there a period of a few months where you couldnt buy a new supra, while they were selling the 1993 mk3s elsewhere?

    1993.5. It was a mid-model year release. In order to be a full yr production, as a "1993", it needed to have been available by summer-fall of 1992. But as you can see, the 1992 model was ran clear into 1993, after other "1993" models were already on the market.

    Id like to see color and trim break downs like the mkivs are documented. Like the ht vs targa, turbo vs non, 5sp vs at.

    Yes the cruise control has always been on the steering wheel on the MK3 Supra.

    1993 MKIV production started in May, 1993.
    1994 MKIV production started in August, 1993.

    So there aren't actually that many months of "1993" Supras. Even though there was no production gap between the MK3 and MK4, and the "1992" model year ran quite long, Toyota never had a "1993" model year MK3 in North America. It was confusing enough when they did it for the MK2/3 split. They learned from that mistake, afterwords just running model years long or short. (1989 MR2 production ran from August, 1988 to December, 1989; 1991 MR2 production ran from January, 1990 to July, 1991)

    As far as when models are introduced and what counts as what year, there is not hard and fast rule book. Typically the changeover is in August, but for some models it has been frequently May instead, and for other models it sometimes runs extremely long (2010 Corolla production is from February, 2009 to December, 2010).
