Eh, I dunno if I believe that. I was reading a history of the Supra line
a while ago (somewhere online, that I've since forgotten). The supra
started life as a celica with a bit more zip. Always had 4 seats (AFAIK),
The Supra started off as a package option on the top of the line Celicas.
Remember the early to mid 80's Celica Supra with the spoiler at the top of
the rear hatch? I always loved those cars and thought they looked great!!
After that generation model the car "split" into FWD Celicas and RWD Supras.
At that point I'd argue that the Supras had "morphed" into a completely
different car and a different intent for that car. IMO the Supras became
"sports cars" at that point. Hell, Porsche 911s always had rear seats, of
some sorts, and they too had humble beginnings.
So once again; Very subjective these sports cars are.
