Would You Pay $80,000 For This 1994 Toyota Supra?

There’s a new Toyota Supra in the pipeline that’s supposed to come out sooner rather than later. While some enthusiasts are patiently waiting for the new car, others have turned to finding pristine examples to stow away for rainy days in case the new sports car doesn’t live up to the hype.

Well, here it is – a pristine, low-mileage example that everyone’s been dreaming about. Currently on sale on Bring a Trailer, this 1994 Supra is in excelent condition and has only traveled 5,664 miles over the past 24 years. As far as Supras go, this one looks incredible and has managed to be owned by three individuals that haven’t ruined the machine with absurd modifications.

From the listing, it sounds like the owners knew what they had and went above and beyond to ensure it remained in stellar condition its whole life. The vehicle still features its original Super White paint job and even has the original dealership’s sticker on the back.

The Supra also has the more desirable powertrain, namely the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter 2JZ-GTE straight-six that was good for 320 horsepower and 315 pound-feet of torque. Power is put down to the rear wheels, which are wearing the original 17-inch wheels. The car even has the original massive rear wing.

There is one downside to it, though: this particular Supra is fitted with a four-speed automatic instead of the six-speed Getrag gearbox. That, for some, will completely ruin the appeal of the sports car and that’s understandable. But with so little miles on the clock, this example is more of a collector’s car and probably won’t cover too many more miles over its life.

Going, going… gone for 80 large ones

Eventually, the Supra sold for $80,500. For that price, you could’ve bought a brand new Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, a base Porsche 911 Carrera, or the raucous Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. At the price range, you’re really spoiled for choice. Still, someone out there though that the unmodified sports car that was in stellar condition was worth the money.

The idea of a $80,500 24-year-old Supra may sound crazy, but with a new Supra on the horizon, people are surely looking to get their hands on an original model in case the new sports car doesn’t live up to the hype.

If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on a Supra, but have been dissuaded by high prices, you might’ve missed the boat. This example just set the new standard, which will probably cause the rest of the market to follow suit.

That being said, if someone’s willing to spend more than $80k on a twin-turbo Supra with an automatic gearbox, we’d love to see how bidding goes on a similar example with the six-speed transmission.

    Why is this an article? a lot of supra cost 70-100k (depending on where you look)? Yes, there are some for cheaper, but still

  • Bo Hanan

    If it had a 6-speed trans then yes. For $80K why not wait for the new BMW, er, uh, Supra…..

  • LWOAP

    Well, it’s already sold. It’s in really good condition and it hasn’t been modded to hell and back so I think it’s worth it. Now then, how much would a pristine, unmodded 240SX go for?

  • Honda NSX-R

    Nope

  • Craig

    If people are willing to pay $80,000 for car like the Supra or NSX – that tells ME that there are few really great NEW $80,000 sports cars for sale.

    • Dr Strangefingger

      I agree. Car prices are reaching peak stupidity!

  • Six_Tymes

    automatic, PASS at that price

  • Liam Paul

    lol no

  • TheBelltower

    Seriously? GTFOH with this $80k supra. A certain level of respect for this car is fine. But let’s not get completely stupid about the value of a 90s Toyota.

    • Six Thousand Times

      Whatever the traffic will bear.

  • Six Thousand Times

    That’s about right for an unmolested low-mileage example.

  • Like what anyone mentioned, it’s not that surprising. Considering Supra is not made much and that few survives unmolested and low mileage.

    • Dr Strangefingger

      There aren’t many Subaru Justy or VW Fox models left that are unmolested or low mileage survivers either. Doesn’t mean an idiotic price is justified as a result.

      • Supply and demand, but yeah it’s double of Hagerty price for Concours Supra.

  • Eagle By Singer

    To put it simply:

    No.

  • Bash

    No

  • Harry Nimmergut

    Boy, is that one butt-ugly vehicle. Probably the ugliest Supra ever made. I remember the version around 1982, that I thought was gorgeous and couldn’t afford one ($15K-ish as I recall).

  • LeStori

    It was ugly in 1994 and even uglier today.

  • fabri99

    If it weren’t automatic, hell yes, IT’S A SUPRA!
    The auto (and personally the white paintjob too) are a turnoff for me, but wouldn’t expect to find a Supra for less that 60k. Considering the low mileage on this example, a $100,000 tag wouldn’t have surprised me.

  • brn

    Not a steal. Just less of a rip-off.

    There is nothing more 1998 / JDM Mystique / Hot Import Nights / Fast & Furious / Tokyo Drift than that “Supra” badge scrawled in script
