It seems like everyday, the StanceNation photographers, naturally out do each other! We continually bring our audience cars that inspire, motivate, awe, and occasionally even upset a few readers. With the numerous amount of differing opinions and individualistic thinking that we are all blessed with, its hard to simply please everyone. However, I’d like to offer a look into the other end of the spectrum that is wheel fitment. I love slammed cars, I love negative camber, and I love everything we feature here on StanceNation but that doesn’t mean that I don’t love and respect the cars that don’t quite fit the “slammed” criteria. Here is a great example which I am sure we can all appreciate & respect. In the stifling midst of all the “broken axles” and “bacon fenders”, I would like to offer you a breath of fresh function, in the form of Tyler Pflanz’s 1100+ HP Toyota Supra.



Almost like it’s hiding its face out of sheer modesty, this Toyota Supra is the rare pinnacle achievement of a childhood dream. As children, many of us dream big, some of us begin that dream, and very few of us actually live it out. This is a rare example of the a dream come true.    When Tyler saw this car as an adolescent, he knew absolutely NOTHING about it. He was clueless in the area of automobiles but he was irrevocably in love. Matter of fact, out of all the 90’s sports cars Tyler could safely say that the Supra would be his Holy Grail. Even after all these years none other could even begin to come close to its timeless look and design.




Bred from his wildest imagination stemming from his younger ages, Tyler endured the painful and total loss of a previous 3.4L 2JZ-GE Supra in a fire. What emerged from the ashes, well, it wasn’t the same. Tyler knew, since the fire didn’t kill him, it clearly had to make his build stronger and that is exactly what he did. Taking on a new engine because the old one was butchered by a previous shop, Tyler switched over to the forced  induction side adding on a HKS Type R Intercooler and a SP81 turbo. Although, on pump gas he only makes 650 hp @17 psi, his track tune brings the number to the range of about 1100hp! Did I really just say “only” 650hp?!



Rocking an uncommon look for Supras with the deleted wing, Tyler’s Supra did not always look like this. When Tyler first got this car, he ran into a multitude of problems. From the engine dying in the initial 500 miles to a rusting chassis, it seemed like that clearly would have been the end of the road for this car. However, as Tyler remedied the engine problem, the very first shop he hired to mold the Ridox front bumper, Ridox Varis front fenders, custom Bomex side skirts, Trial rear bumper, and the custom Do-luck widebody rear, they managed to do that incorrectly and on top of it all, paint it the wrong color. Definitely a bump in the road..



Although StanceNation is known for featuring some of the lowest cars, we truly love and appreciate all kinds of cars. Tyler’s car is not just a car built for shows but rather versatility. Able to outrun most of the competition, this car can get down and look good doing so. At the end of the day, Tyler wants a car that can dominate on the track or the drag strip but is also reliable enough to take him home. Though it’s safe to assume that the drive home may feel like a continuation of a race.


Tyler wants to give a shout out to his sponsors which include MVP Motorsports, Intense Motorsports, D2 Racing, Niche Road Wheels, App-Tronics, NRG, and Meguiars.
