So it looks like there are some growing concerns over the estimated base price of the upcoming Supra. We always knew that this wasn't going to a standard production model, so I don't know why people are so surprised. It looks like a bunch of auto websites are estimating the FT1 to be in the vicinity of $50-60k. It'll be interesting to see how BMW prices the new Z4 as a result.
Not too surprising considering the prestige of the nameplate and the performance specs that have been hinted at in the GRMN concept. Cant help but wonder what a base trim with a manual gearbox would have done for consumer interest.
Perhaps my sense of cost is skewed, but $50-60k for the FT1 seems fair depending on its specs. Granted there are a few other sports cars you can get for under $60k, so maybe around the $50k mark would be good for the Supra is they want to stay competitive.
Assuming that Toyota delivers with the powertrain (which I'm sure they will), then I would agree that this price point seems justified. You'd probably end up spending close to that amount of money trying to import an older generation model in good condition.
