#294 of 299 Toyota Supra 2008: Make it affordable!
Nov 15, 2007 (8:47 pm)
As a former Supra owner, I'd like the new Supra to be affordable. That means a price similar to the base Nissan 350Z (the high 20K range). I don't need a targa roof, leather seats, or any premium sound system. I just want the base car with a normally aspirated engine (preferably a 330-350HP 3.5 liter V6)--and vehicle skid control should be standard. (In fact, VSC should be standard on all Toyota vehicles; if they can make it standard on a Scion Xb that costs 17K, then they can make it standard feature on every vehicle).
Toyota, give us an affordable Supra!

The latest I have read seems to indicate the base price will be $7-8K higher than the base 350Z. Maybe Toyota figures that by the time the new Supra gets here, Nissan will have redesigned their car and raised prices accordingly, I dunno.
Looks like minimum power for the base model will be at least 300 hp though, so there's value for that higher price. I hope they go ahead and build a stick shift hybrid model.
Toyota also has the new RWD lightweight coupe in the works too, so now I face the dilemma of which I am more interested in. The Supra is bound to come in heavy, 3500 pounds at a minimum I would guess.

#297 of 299 What to do??

Hello, First the picture is NOT my car. I'll try to make this short. In 1988 I had a 1982 Toyota 4X4 and I totaled it. My dream car at that time was a Toyota Supra. Then they came out with a new body
body style and it ws black to boot, I couldn't resist it. I was 21 years old and the car on the show room was black. $18000. It was every penny I had saved my whole life. So I bought it with 3 miles on it. I had a very harsh lesson to learn in Colorado.
I was used to my 4X4, Now it was winter snowing big time. And now I had a rear wheel drive with gaterbacks.
That did not work. I had to buy a FJ-40.
My supra never sat outside over 1 night. I drove it only 14000 miles in 20 years, it is perfect! How do you sell something like that for a reasonable price? I even had to buy new tires, the Goodyear tires dry rotted with great tread.Does anybody have any ideas? That would be great!

So you have an '88 Supra with 14k miles. That's pretty impressive.
One very important detail is WHAT MODEL?
If I were buying, I would want to know a very detailed service history. What did you do to the car each year? How often did you change the oil? How old are the belts and hoses? How did you deal with the gas in the tank over time?
But, anyway, I think the only way to go with this is auction. I would try out Ebay. As to what your reserve should be ... well, that's tougher. Have you thought about having it appraised? I would think the car may qualify for Hagerty's insurance, and I believe they can help you out with getting an appraisal, too.
Just remember, you want TONS of pictures and very very detailed information as I've described above.
