Toyota Supra
Equipped with a Twin Turbo 2JZ-GTE Engine, Bomex Body Kit, Stage 3-T-4 Turbo and a Dual Wet-Shot Nitrous-Engage, Dominic Toretto fled with it after crashing his 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, after Brian O'Conner handed his car keys to him, claiming he owed him a 10 second car. In the movie Jesse referred to spending $10,000-$15,000 on this car. In reality there was over $50,000 dollars invested in the Supra.

The Fast and the Furious
The 1994 Toyota Supra was Brian's second car in The Fast and the Furious. He obtained it when his Eclipse was destroyed by Johnny Tran. When he first obtains the vehicle, it appears to be just an old rusted Supra that they got from a junk yard, after closer inspection they found that most of the car was in relatively good condition and would be worth restoring. Dominic Toretto spends about $10,000-$15,000 on restoring the engine itself. A very unique vehicle considering it's Lamborghini DiablCandy pearl orange paint and unique vinyl. After a complete overhaul of the vehicle it has 544 bhp @ 6800rpm's, easily able to beat a Ferrari, during a, would-be, test run. It is later seen being driven by Brian O' Conner at Race Wars, but, seemingly, did not take part in any races. Brian and Mia use the Supra to rescue Vince from the semi-truck in the desert. Returning to Los Angeles and confronting Dominic, Brian uses the car to chase down Johnny Tran and his cousin, Lance, when they do a drive by in an attempt to kill Dom, but instead kill Jesse. Brian chases them through the suburbs of Los Angeles, avoiding gunfire. Dom manages to knock Lance off his dirt bike and down a hill. Brian shoots Johnny causing him to fall off his bike, seemingly, killing him. He tells a pedestrian to call 911 and follows Dom to a red light. Dom tells Brian how he used to race there during high school. Using the rail road track down the road as a finsh line. Midway through the race, they both realize that a train coming. Right as the train passes they dodge it with only a few inches between them and the train. Just as everything is calm a semi-truck comes out of a corner causing Dom to crash into it. It sends his 1970 Dodge Charger flying in the air, apparently totaling it. Brian then gets out of the car and runs to Dom. He helps Dom out of the car, relatively unscathed, escaping with only a few cuts and a broken arm. They hear sirens in the distance. Brian looks at Dom with pity, knowing that he will be sent back to prison for his crimes. He gives him the keys to his Supra, repaying his debt. Dom shakes his head and drives off into the distance.

It is unknown what happened to the Supra after this, however, In the short film "Turbo-Charged Prelude," it is implied that Dom had abandoned the vehicle, when Brian is in a Texas diner and sees the newspaper headline "Vehicle Found Abandoned". Considering how Dominic would have crossed into Mexico through California instead of Texas, this is most likely another vehicle all together. Either way, in the first movie post-credits scene, Dom is shown driving the Chevrolet Chevelle SS, implying that he no longer had the Supra.

  2. I never knew about Dom supposedly abandoning the Supra. It would be cool if in Furious 8 Dom recreates the Supra
