I hope everyone is aware that a Supra was never a cheap car... 43k in 1993 is equivalent to approx 75k in 2018... I would genuinely be curious how many people would pay that for a Supra today if it came out... IMHO, it would need to be at least a GTR level car to command that type of pricing.

Same here.. I was in high school when the MK4 was in the dealers. I could go to the dealer to drool over it. The Supra turbo was a toy and unobtainable for most younger middle class people - $40k for a new car in 1993 is $80k in today's dollars.

Still, back then I'd drool over the Japanese unobtainium like the Silvias, Evos, WRXs and GTRs more... Those I only saw in videos and Japanese car magazines.

That's a great question. Red was always considered the least desirable color but I think this auction goes to show that low miles will bring high dollar no matter what color. I would like to see how much a RSP or quicksilver color car would sell for in similar condition.

With the prices I'm seeing, I'm in a similar situation as you where I am starting to get thoughts on how much mine would bring

My big issue is trying to determine the delta between the targa cars and the much rarer hardtop cars. They only brought 10 silver, out of a total 326, hard tops to the US. There are so few that sell publicly that it's hard to determine what that extra value is.

Nice! Are those Fikse FM10 wheels? If so, many years ago when deciding which wheels to get for my Supra, I debated hours between those but ultimately settled on the Fikse Profil 5S.

Coupes are cooler, in my book. Just as a GTB Ferrari was cooler than a GTS.

You are about to find out. Except new supra motor (I meant BMW) barely makes more HP than the MKIV and no manual.

Canít imagine buying one myself - when you can get a more luxurious, better turbo motor and better performer in something like a 718 Cayman/S/GTS. BMWs Z4/5 is a long, long way off what Porsche has in the Boxster/Cayman from any angle so I canít imagine the Supra will be anywhere close either.

I wish i never got rid of mine, def would have gotten rid of the aero and would have put stock body work back on and factory repaint.. back then i was just a kid who didnt want to deal with repairs (cyl 6 had a catastrophic leakdown results). I still sold it overnight for 28K, although i got it for some 21-22K less than a year prior.
