IIRC, it was given the nickname many years ago by someone on the MKIV list (forget who).

The cars were referred to as "dawgs" because they typically start slow from a dig and then "dawg" down the other car once the turbo(s) spools.

Thanks? You got 4 totally different answers! I always thought it was because

Supra -> Sup -> SupDawg (because these two words just go together like diamondz and bitchiz, yo!) -> Dawg

Wow that is some old skool shit. I haven't seen anyone call a MKIV that in a while. Stupid AZ thing, I thought it sounded dumb and a little wanna be ghetto.

I don't recall the exact details, but it was Dave Mashour (sp?) and Tozer/Guilly/somebody sitting in a bar drinking and Dave was talking about needing to get his supdawg back on the road, having a problem with his supdawg, or something like that. Anyway, the point is it was Dave and that bunch who started throwing the name around as a joke on the mkiv.com mailing list back in the late '90s.

i was talking about a TT supra to my friend, and he goes "the big dawg ey?"

i think its just the physical size of the supra, and that its got some presence, just like a big ass pit bull terrior
