The Supra came to the end of the model life with its second-generation domestic model (fourth-generation in overseas markets) released in May 1993.

The final model was totally redesigned as a sports car with superlative performance, not only in terms of driving but also in terms of the environment and safety. Its hatchback coupé body with a 2+2 seat arrangement featured shorter length and wheelbase than those of its predecessor, as well as wider treads. The engine was either a 3,000 cc inline 6-cylinder DOHC 24-valve 225 PS unit (available with the SZ model) or its twin-turbo version producing 280 PS (for the RZ model). The RZ model adopted a 6-speed manual transmission made by a reputed German auto parts manufacturer Getrag. Its newly designed 4-wheel double wishbone suspension, ultra-low-profile tires, and a high volume master cylinder for the brakes constantly enabled high driving performance under any road conditions.

In motor sports, the Supra participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, and also in the Super GT series in Japan in the GT 500 class. The Supra remained active in motor sports until 2005, long after its production ended in August 2002.
