    The Toyota dealer near my house quoted $56k MSRP. Deliveries in August. Show room car available in August.

    Thats basically the US MSRP, you sure he wasn't just quoting you the US announced price? Its pretty unlikely Canada would get the lowest price world wide. US dealers would start a riot, the exchange has not been great for us the last year.

    CAD $56k base
    USD $50k base

    The Toyota 86 is 11% higher in Canada. So, it's logical the Supra is also 11% higher.

    Nissan sells the 370Z base at same price US and Canada $29900.

    Well, that would be nice.

    I wonder what barriers are in place to stop US buyers from buying new up here? There's a 25% difference in currency currently. They must be doing something beyond the usual car exporting/importing crap.

    Generally speaking the way it's done is to just not sell cars to people who don't have a Canadian address. The way around it is to have a Canadian buy the car for you and then sell it to you to bring back to the US. It makes financing or leasing much more difficult and/or impossible. In the end it stops most people. The same thing happened with US dealers when our dollar was better around 2010-2011.

    When I ordered my FR-S in April 2012 I was unaware there was a Subaru variant with a few extras. Since the Subaru would take longer to arrive, I called a dealer in Western New York and was told I had to add something like an additional 5.5% tariff to our 13% sales tax at the border since that amount is otherwise built into the Canadian MSRP. In the end I preferred the face of the Scion.

    Yeah we are supposed to pay about 6% duty on things we buy in the US that aren't made in North America. I don't think they have the same thing going the other way though.

    that's not as big of a mark-up as I was expecting so that's slightly good news.

    Ha, I was right then. I didn't expect it to be that cheap here (56k).

    The z4 isn't that much cheaper, plus its BMW so I'm sure they'll make up the difference before it gets off the lot.

    [Edit - ninja'd, this was posted earlier today on the general forum but moved by mods. Left for price comparisons.]

    Motor Illustrated has confirmed with a Toyota rep that the launch price in Canada for the Supra will be $64,990. 300 units will be available, and pre-orders are now open. It's not clear if all those 300 are Launch Editions or if that number constitutes the sum total of the 2020 release for Canada. Trim levels and specs are yet to be released.

    There is no Toyota Canada press release confirming that price yet, but the Motor Illustrated story comes from a long-time, well-known Canadian auto reviewer so it's very likely to be accurate.

    Assuming the car is equivalent to the US Launch Edition, it's 118% of the US price (ignoring currency valuations). That is a substantial premium - consider that in Canada the 86 is only 113% of the US price. Of course the Canadian Supra price is still a bit lower than the currency exchange rate of 1 CAD = 0.75 USD would dictate by itself.

    The articles say starting price of 64, 990, so it seems it is equivalent to the $49,900 USD base car. Not the launch edition.

    That's " when it launches ", so that to me means the Launch Edition, without any of the option packages available for it. Other Canadian trims will be coming later if it follows the US rollout timetable.

    Many manufacturers in Canada tend not to bring in as many trims, so I could see us only getting the premium/launch trims.
