pure common sense baffles me why people put so much value on Supras... the F and F movie franchise is all i can think of...

The supra turbo of that gen was not that great of a handler, was quite heavy, had a very laggy stock turbo and some could argue didn't even look that great. The other problem being that everyone now builds turbo motors that are significantly better and more modern (BMW to name one company). No one even cared about Supras until the movies and they weren't modded by anyone to run below 12 seconds in the 1/4 until mid 2000s lol. The current GTR can also run 6 seconds in the 1/4 w the proper mods and can be had for 50K all day for the car. BMW has incredible M cars now that are significantly more luxurious and can also be modded to be quick, as can plenty AMGs... it even shows Toyota can no longer create magic as they needed to borrow the most important components for the new car from BMW.

uhhh you do realise that cars don't go up in value because of their 1/4 miles or 0-60 times right? In fact those are virtually worthless criteria for evaluation; just like Nurburgring times (the most irrelevant criteria).

cars go up in value because they become desirable. whether that's from movies, films, positive reviews, the way they look, the way they drive, whatever----they generate excitement.

The last generation Supra WAS a really good handling car for its era, and had very distinctive looks. It had a big fat spoiler, weird taillights, and a muscular body. Sure it was in F&F but that merely served to introduce a new generation of kids and people to the car. I'm not surprised they went up in value. The RX7 from that era is also going up in value now....they were cool cars that were relatively affordable then and outperformed other sports cars of that era.

Yah but none of that matters, because it's a Supra. A classic, an icon, a legend, the list goes on. That's why it's valuable.

I timed my MKIV Supra purchase perfectly back in the day. I purchased my 94 TT in arctic silver metallic, 6MT with the the targa roof in late 2000. I had always loved the car, and coming from two prior MR2 Turbos it was the logical step up so I bought my dream car at the time in November of 2000.

People sorta liked the car, but once TFATF came out, I became a rock star almost overnight. I couldn't go anywhere without being hounded, tailed, hooted at while driving, etc. It was nuts, completely nuts.

I only kept it for around 18 months though, the allure of the quick cashout once values seemingly sky rocketed over night was just too much for me to ignore. It helped pay for law school that's for sure!

Since then, the only car I've owned which compares to it is the M4 I have currently. The M4 reminds me a lot of the Supra, but stock vs. stock the M4 is of course a superior machine. Can't really explain it, but I do like driving the M4 far more than I ever did the Supra as well. That Getrag transmission in the Supra was such a pain in the ass, I never liked it much. I really, really miss the targa though, the turbo noises, and the huge FMIC I had on it which unfortunately the M4 will never have.

Supra prices will only continue to increase.....this will be one of the only Japanese cars you will be seeing at shows like Concours D’Elegance in next 25 years, along with original NSX.

The Poopra was tits. Driving an 800+rwhp single turbo Poopra is exhilarating. Highway Kings!

Here's mine from back in the day. Wish I'd never sold it. 6 speed manual Getrag box, Torsen rear end, rare hard top, red with a black leather interior. Almost cried when it drove away down my driveway.. I ran the two turbos in true twin configuration (non sequential), had a Greddy intercooler and exhaust as well as the APEX fuel and ignition glovebox piggyback computers. For giggles I had a 100horse NOx jet as well as an Aquamist setup so I could run high boost without spark knock (pre-ignition). Those were the days. I sold it and bought an E92 M3 in 2008!

You sold a car which was essentially 1 of 89? LOL...why?

I started collecting 90s cars at the beginning of last year. I will be buying the next bone stock, white, <10K mile 6-speed Supra TT available.

I wonder if this is a generational thing.

I was 16 when the 4th gen came out. WAY before F&F. We were all obsessed with the Supra Turbo back then. Instant legend. This was a car that was literally as fast as a Ferrari in a straight line. The performance numbers were awesome for the time and unreal at that price point.

Various reasons actually, not the least of which was I needed the money. I had owned and driven the car for at least eight years (70K miles) and sold it with over 100K miles on it. During the time I owned it, the car was driven very hard, beaten and put away wet nearly every day. Though I did keep it clean. At the end, the engine had to be rebuilt because I dropped a valve into one cylinder (broken valve spring) and the rear seats became too small for my children to use. There are other reasons, but those are the gist of it. Oh, and the E92 M3 was "calling me"..

Keep in mind this was "before" the Fast & The Furious movie franchise had taken off. Additionally, I didn't know it was one of 89 until well after the sale. Apparently, there were only 8 red hardtops imported into the USA. Back then, Supra aficionados were far fewer than they are today. Even though the car has now become a cult classic, it does have a few quirks - as all cars do.

For example: I always thought the clutch was a weak link (yes, I ran an ACT clutch) that required massive effort to operate in order to harness all the power available. Having owned a Supra TT I can say, "when in a high state of tune, it was a helluva' car," but just not for everybody (such as my wife).

Years after selling it, when people would ask me, "how do like your M3" I would end up talking about - you guessed it - my Supra TT.

That's only few, just like e30 m3 can be 100k and some can be 40k. There is plenty of supras you can find 35-45k. I know a guy who was selling his 1996 white TT for 35k mileage was around 100k.
