    Jesus H Christ. The hype surrounding this thing. The dealer markup the first two years is going to be absolutely retarded. Sigh.

    That's a C7 pictured.

    I understand you can only write off the tax on MSRP, so basically nothing.

    In the US, when a person (Craig Jackson in this case) purchases an item at auction for charity, they can claim the entire amount above FMV (fair market value) as a tax deduction. The company (Toyota) only gets to write off the FMV of the car they donated.

    No, it's the only Launch edition that will be in the matte Gray. After the 1st 1500 you will be able to order the matte gray in the U.S. I was told a $1200 charge for it and was able to request it with a deposit. It's also my understanding that only 24 will be available in Europe in matte gray..but I could be totally wrong about that.

    If that would be an option for the regular models, then that would be great! More choices, more fun! :thumbsup:

    Imagine if the car that was sold at the auction for $2.1 million was the “FT-1”; and not the Supra, then it’s probably a steal. :eek:

    To be honest, I really don't like the way the FT-1 looks...

    It would be cool if they released the FT-1 as a supercar fighting the NSX, Huracan, 570s, R8, Turbo S above the Supra. The proportions are just otherwordly and would be amazing to have. Also knowing the fact that they will bring a smaller sports car below the Supra and the GR Super Sport hypercar. That's a 5 car lineup.

    Probably not going to happen though (as that's just dreaming) and it's going to be just the 4 cars. Yup, you heard me right. 4 cars. It seems like people are forgetting about the hypercar that's coming in the next few years. I do realize it's way above the other 3, but its still a Toyota sports/super/supersports car (or whatever you would like to call it).

    I definitely am an interested buyer of the Supra, I would like to hear what they still have to say. Am I holding out for a manual? Maybe. But I really like automatics. However I would buy a stick because why not.
