The Toyota Celica Supra was born in Japan in 1978. It’s a strange story because Japan called it the Celica XX but the rest of the world still called it the Celica Supra. The first round of these (Mark I’s) were a more powerful version of the Celica but were still in the Celica lineup of models. It wasn’t until the release of the 3rd generation (Mark III’s) in 1986 when the bonds between Celica and Supra were broken. Finally Toyota had two different cars and the rest of the world could stop being confused.
