Hybrid: 1981 Toyota Celica Supra Hatchback

All Toyotas, All Day continues with this next Yota that combines the classic Celica name with Supra attitude.  It was really just a Celica with an inline-6 shoved where the inline-4 normally lived (and a longer snout) but it was the start of a few decades of competition with Nissan over who makes the better 6-cylinder sports car (spoiler alert — it was BMW).  Find this 1981 Toyota Celica Supra Hatchback here on eBay bidding for $5,500 buy-it-now or make-offer located in Cornelius, NC with 5 days to go.

The first generation Supra may have shared everything from the A-pillar back with the Celica, but it was aimed squarely more upmarket.  The 2.8 liter 5M-E inline-6 was rated at 116 horsepower /145 ft-lbs of torque and this one has the desirable 5-speed manual gearbox.

The red interior looks garish by today’s standards, but it works really well with the black exterior if you ask me.
