    Have they mentioned? What price range are you looking for?

    "While paying homage to the history of Toyota sports cars, the FT-1 wasn't specifically designed to be the next Supra, a nameplate that has been absent from the United States for more than a decade.
    Nonetheless, the starting point for the FT-1 was a theoretical car with a real-world price tag between $50,000 and 60,000, said Kevin Hunter, president of the Calty Design Research studio in Newport Beach, Calif., where the car was designed."

    I should add, it's obviously just Calty's own theoretical price range but I am sure Toyota gave them an idea of where this will be positioned in the market so they knew their theoretical limits when designing.

    50-60 thousand is not terrible.. I was thinking much higher when looking at how crazy hi tech and exotic the FT-1 looks.

    I could live with that for sure. The only issue it really needs to PERFORM at that price level.

    2015 Porsche Cayman. Starts at 60k
    2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Starts at 59k
    2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe 58k.
    2015 Mercedes CLA 45 AMG. Starts at 50k.

    The 2015 M3 starts at just a hair over 60k. Some big time performers

    And cars like Cayman and M3 easily get spec'd up to $70-80k. Since it's a Toyota (good thing) the Supra won't be like that. My guess is $59k and outperforms the BMW M4.

    I'm thinking right around the price of the Lexus RC-F ($62k). It could start in the 55K range but be optioned out to 70K+. kinda scary actually not sure I can afford that...

    It'll look much more tame in production form. Especially the interior which shows a pretty futuristic fighter jet windshield display. That will for sure not be seen in any production Supra in the near future.

    Ideally they would offer 2models, a base model at 52-55K maybe with a 4 cylinder and a TTV6 or even a V8 around 57-59K.

    I like that. I think an even bigger spread between the two models to open it up to more people would be good.

    Later years maybe, not the first few tho. Gotta feel out the market before sinking too much costs.

    Right. I think the fear now is just looking at the concept but once we see a more production feasible concept or version cooler heads will prevail about pricing. I surely don't want to be competing with luxury brands with my wallet.

    I could see that since this car should have less technology but more performance and exotic materials. But it better have more impresive performence because the RC-F doesn't have much buzz at all from some not so impressive reviews.

    I really think they're either going to play it safe and price it around the RC-F so it can compete for buyers of the RC-F, M3, ATS-V, C7 at like $50-60k or go for broke and price it in the $80k-90k range to compete with the 911 and GT-R type cars.

    claims that the upcoming Toyota sports car (presumably Supra) will cost $55k+, more than the price of the base Corvette.
