I was just wondering, can someone please tell me what changes occured to the supra between the years of 93 and 98? engine, interior, tranny, suspension, etc. Also, I looked on a website, and it refers to the 93-95 as having "strut suspension" ans the 96-98 as having "independant double wishbone"-was there actually a change? or are the calling one thing two names??? Also, can anyone explain to me why the supra had a HUGE increase in MSRP from the 93/94-->95/96, then back down to the 93/94 price for 97/98??? Thanks for any info. Also, for anyone who may not know me, I am a long time VR-4 owner from 3si.org, (under the same username), and I am CONSIDERING a supra.

go to mkiv.com and check out they have a white paper from toyota I think it is under the specifications page.

The 96 did not have a manual that was the first year of OBD II
from 97 on they deleted some features no heated mirrors vinyl on the door rests insted of leather differnt head lights and tail lights and a slighlty differnt bumper fascia. The engine is the same as is the suspension and I believe there was no change to the brakes either. The wheels were polished or chromes as a dealer option. The dash was grey insted of grey black, the high back seats became one piece instead of two. I think the 98 had a snow switch which klilled some HP at he ecu ( may have been only canadian cars I am not sure) The price decreased in an attempt to get more sales as the market had shifted to SUVs from sports cars. toyota took a bath on the supra development costs were reportedly in the very high multimillions which given the sales number were un recouped.

From 93-95/96 all japanese cars saw huge price increases. The 97 model year was discounted 10,000+ to jump start sales. The biggest differences are between the 97/98s and other years.

Mmm, in terms of J-Spec models produced, were the configurations the same, ie: no J-Spec manuals in the 96 year etc?

Don't know about the rest of the stuff, but there were manuals for 96. I got one.
