My 2 cents is regardless of my lack of interest in the 4T version of Supra I’m not sure they are that “close” in performance at least the sports car line up. The hard facts are that budgets do take people’s priority and the target step ups in Toyota sports car lineup make sense to me.I feel like Toyota is putting its cars too close together in terms of price and performance.
Next gen 86....30k base?, 220hp?
+$13k to move to base 4T Supra
Supra 4T.........43k base? 275HP? (I just used the middle of the 260-280 hp range. I’m guessing might actually creep up to 42-44k base and I’m still curious what they will do to get “more” than 255HP?)
+$12k to move to base 6T Supra
Supra 6T.........55k base? 380HP (despite similar production costs TMNA will raise base msrp by a decent sum when 2021 released)
I mean lots of variables at play but on 5 year loan a buyers payment between 4T vs 6T is over $200 per mo difference and while some will argue that’s not big deal especially if longer terms exist the point is some just can’t afford the 6T and Toyota can capture the $40k range buyers that prefer the styling of Supra.
