I may have the answer

I realize this is an old thread....

The Senior Advisor in my group (at work) is a man who was a Quality Engineer for the Supra back in Japan. He has been working for Toyota for 20+ years.

He told me the reason why Toyota built a hardtop version of the Supra was to compete in GT racing.
Apparently, in order for a car to be considered eligible for the GT circuit, the manufacturer had to produce a hardtop version in certain quantities.

I'm sure all the hardtop owners out there notice the obvious features such as more headroom (for wearing a helmet), and of course, the stiffer chassis.

Ugh! Don't cut up a hard top so you can have a targa! Just buy a targa. They are much more common. Unless you're speaking of an NA Mk IV Supra or older, then go for it, but don't ruin a TT.

I would trade my '94 TT Supra targa for a hardtop TT Mk IV in the same condition!
