1988 Toyota Soarer: A Unique JDM Cruiser

Spotting a Toyota Soarer in the US is already a rare occurrence, but one particular unit stands out even more as it has been transformed into an American lowrider. This unique 1988 model of the JDM coupe belongs to Ryan Rea, who recently sat down with renowned LA-based photographer Larry Chen to discuss the details of the build.

The Toyota Soarer, which shares its platform with the Supra, was never officially sold in the United States. Instead, American consumers were offered the Lexus SC. However, thanks to the 25-year import rule, the owner was able to acquire an imported Soarer - a dream come true for him since he first laid eyes on one at an auto show when he was only 16 years old.
