New Supra Wont Be Cheap

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.

Imports to NA have just recently become a thing, due the MK4's age and the offering of LHD conversion kits. I recall it being quite difficult trying to find an insurance provider for RHD models.
