Celica Supra

What does Celica Supra mean? I always thought they were different cars, but sometimes I see cars that say Celica Supra. What's the deal?

The history section of this site makes no mention of a Celica Supra. I know GTS means Grand Touring - Sport. Did it at one time mean Supra?

The Supra was made off of the celica. Hense Celica Supra. Kind of like Camry Solara. Or M3. Its the sportier, if you will, version of it.
Notice how the last gen celicas slightly resemble a Supra's bodystyle as well.

As VSGTS14 said.. back in like the early 80's (maybe late 70's?) Came the Celica-Supra, and later they parted their own ways, but the Supra title originated as part of the Celica.. it's just that the Supra became a big bad ass sports car that everyone wants.
