    Now I have to buy a lotus.. shoot.. Good read I do see how the engineers my have been influenced. Now I wonder how many cars were influenced by our sweet little Mk.II?

    Wow Greg, can't believe the amount of information you have and are able to process it into the metamorphosis of the Supra. Still amazes me that until I happened upon CS.com a couple years ago, I thought that there was noone else that had a love for the second generation Supra.

    whoa... what's up with the P-type wheels on the Lotus, Greg? Which came first, the MkII or the Lotus? Granted, I know Toyota had a 21% stake in Lotus in the early-mid 80's...

    The 1984-1988 Nissan 200SX (Silvia S12) comes to mind. I specifically remember Nissan's own TV commercials and print ads wld say "The 200SX was $XXXX amount of dollars cheaper than the Toyota Supra. Biters!

    It's cool you started the pictorial with the Pininfarina designed '71 (ferrari).
    I'm surprised you didn't include pics of the Pininfarina designed '77 Lancia Scorpion.
    Here's some pics: http://www.autoblog.com/2007/02/12/r...ncia-scorpion/
