I have seen some incarnations of threads like this but I thought I would make a strictly thread about stuff that was said to us while we were out in our Supras.

Ill start


"Oh wow a supra, cool. Oh its an automatic, man thats worthless its not a proper transmission. The six speed is faster in it in the 1/4"

"Is that a Crolla"

"Wait you want HOW much for it ??! Its just a Toyota. Its not like its an NSX or something"

Ha, mines an automatic AND I'm a girl. People always ask, "Do you know what this car is?" And "Too bad it's an automatic.". I tend to give extremely snarky replies.

How about "Is it fast?"


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Oh yea that's gotta be close to the top of questions I get or have been asked.
Does it have NOS
Do you want to sell it
What did you pay for it.
My buddy or a friend of a friend that knows a guy with one and it has 1000hp or more and it would smoke your supra.
Do you know what you have.

I can keep going but it's safe to say a lot of us have experienced similar questions.

Does it have a 2jz? or you know you can make you car really fast with a supercharger. My reply is, really. I did not know that.

After they get over the disappointment that I removed the amazing stock twin turbos for a inferior single turbo they usually proclaim how huge my 6466 is.So depending on how much time I have - I usually tell them a little about the car and what people usually use to make power. No need to be condescending.

"What are the pros and cons of bagging a Supra?"
"How much does it cost to upgrade an NA auto to a TT 6-spd?"

" You overpaid for your LHD when you can get the same car for half the price (RHD)". I hear this all the time.

the Too bad it is an automatic one gets me the most. Seriously these fools act as if automatics are just put into gear and drive. Their idiot response of "yeah its the same" when I ask them if they think they can handle a 40000bhp top fuel funny car which has automatic transmissions or a pro outlaw race car is "yeah its the same thats why they are so slow"

Your BPU Automatic is literally put into gear and drive. What am I missing here? You just sound butthurt over the fact that you don't have a 6spd.

I've heard a few times the phrase: "does it have the 2jz?"
I respond, in a polite tone: "yeah, it's the turbo" as to not sound condescending or wanting to explain the difference between the GE and GTE, as they may or may not know the difference.
Mostly people just ask to look at it or take a picture.

no just annoyed that people think this:

Is the same thing as this:

What you are missing the fact that our cars regardless if they are automatic or six speed are not simply mere daily drivers, they require one to be alert and ready. In other words they bite.

and Butthurt over the fact I do not own a six speed? LMFAO yes I want to be lumped into the drag race from a roll, and dynoqueen category =P Sorry but if I want to do 1/4 I'm going to do it the right way, with a PROPER drag transmission.

Yes they can be (and regularly are) used as daily drivers. So yes, your automatic BPU Supra is more related to the Camry than the 8 second full drag Cuda you posted a video of. Yes we on this forum hold these cars in high regard and on a pedestal so-to-speak and I'm guilty of that as well but for fucks sake ill be the first to admit yes the car is just a Toyota (a badass one at that) and I wouldn't hesitate to jump in it and drive it across the country just like I would in that Camry, but I would never consider it in that Cuda. Yes Supras are super awesome cars, I've owned three and the one in my garage now was my first that I bought ten years ago (as a TT automatic btw) and will stay with me until the day I die and I treasure it more than anything else that I own but shit man it's just a toyota and I'm perfectly ok with that. Actually proud. If shit people say about your car bothers you that much then maybe you have other issues.

I normally get the "Wanna race?" "How much power bro?" "My cousins uncles buddies girlfriends fiancees monkey has one" "DOOD my buddies srt4 beats these things ALLL the time."

I normally just smile, nod, answer any questions, and play along with the shit talking of how much their buddies car can beat it. Not really into the car game for all the drama that being an asshole because of a few question brings. Just answer them, and move on is all you really have to do.
