The Toyota Aristo, The Cooler Lexus GS

Updated: Aug 6, 2020

This is a different story from us, not a new car or technology, a 1992 Toyota sedan is what we’re writing about today, but it’s super cool.


We’ve all heard of the Toyota Supra, and we all love it. But this is its four-door sibling that never got the attention it needs. But before we get too far, what even is the Aristo? It’s the Japanese Lexus GS sedan that we have in America, but with the Supra‘s legendary 2JZ-GTE engine. It makes 275 horsepower with an automatic transmission, maybe that’s why it’s so unpopular. But continuing on, it makes about 333 lb-ft of torque with its 4-speed auto. So it’s not the 320 horsepower that we get from the Supras 2J but it’s still cool enough that it has one. And they’re really cheap too, look for a nice one for no more than $13,000. But should you buy it? Yes, definitely. With Supras skyrocketing in value, it’s hard to get a 2J that hasn’t been swapped into a different car. But let’s hope it stays cheap.
