If I told you to name all of the mid-engined 90s cars that were built in Japan and sold in the USA, the list would probably look like this — Toyota MR2, Acura NSX…and that’s about it….but you’d have missed the 7 passenger car with available supercharger and all-wheel-drive…did I mention you can get it with a stick? Find this 1991 Toyota Previa offered for $1,650 in Albuquerque, NM via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
The Previa was available from the factory with optional all-wheel-drive (standard was rear wheel drive), a manual transmission and an optional supercharger. The supercharger boosted the 2.4 liter inline-4 (in the car shown here) from the base 135 to 160 horsepower, but you couldn’t get the supercharged version with a shift-it-yourself gearbox. I’d get a 5-speed like this one and swap the blower onto the engine.
