1994 Toyota Supra Twin Turbo Just Sold For Nearly $174,000

Prices for Mk4 Toyota Supra models are currently on the rise, and one example recently sold for a hefty 173,600 in the United States.

The Supra in question is a 1994 model outfitted with the desirable twin-turbocharged 2ZJ engine. In addition, the car includes Toyota’s six-speed manual transmission, the factory targa top, is painted black and outfitted with a tan interior. What’s more, the Japanese sports car crossed the auction block with just 11,200 miles (18,024 km) under its belt.

RM Sotheby’s listing of the car shows that it was sold new in Illinois and stayed there for at least two years, racking up almost 6,000 miles (9,656 km). It was later imported to Switzerland roughly 12 months ago before finding its way back to the United States.

In 2015, the Supra was listed for sale by St. Louis Car Museum and Sales with 10,553 miles (16,983 km) for $99,000. Many Supra enthusiasts were shocked at this asking price, but as it turns out, it may have actually been conservative.

Depending on the market, the twin-turbo, fourth-generation Supra pumped out up to 321 hp at 5600 rpm and 315 lb-ft (427 Nm) of torque at 4000 rpm. Range-topping models sold in the United States could reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than 5 seconds and record low-13 second runs down the quarter mile.

The Mk4 Supra is also a favorite among tuning companies and finding one that’s original without a huge number of miles on the clock is difficult. So maybe we shouldn’t be surprised this example sold for so much then.

    I’m sorry, but you are an IDIOT with too much money if you pay $174k for a Supra.

  • jrelon

    WTF. I mean, they’re only cool because you can mod the hell out of them, and you’re not going to mod a $174,000 version of one because that will turd all over the “collector’s value”, so it makes absolutely no sense.

      “they’re only cool because you can mod the hell out of them”

      ^^^^^^^ this!!!!!!!!!!
      I had a discussion with a supra fanboy about why this was insane. If you have the money then good for you but my case was exactly this. Without mods it’s just an overpriced 90s GT car. No exotic materials and no racing pedigree (unless you include F&F films).
      What’s next, Z32s for a million?? Better save and get my dream Z32 before I can’t afford one anymore.

    More than you can afford, pal.

    People with to much money

  • FoxJ30

    If you got the money, more power to you. Whoever just dropped $174k on this car is likely only to hoon it ever so gently (oxymoron noted), and prolly has at least a GT-R for his/her real fun.

    I for one am happy that there will likely be one un-modded, un-crashed example of Toyota’s high-water mark in the future.

  • A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE BUT I ALWAYS THOUGHT THEY WERE UGLY. THESE “DRIVER’S CARS” NOW A DAYS ARE MOTHBALLED AND WILL NEVER BE DRIVEN AGAIN.

    174k seems high, but if the buyer is super rich it means nothing. .

  • anthony801

    Black interior with tan/parchment seats are the best!

    • Bo Hanan

      And I had to check to confirm it had a manual trans- Check!

    • Alduin

      Tan interiors are the worst. Everything including the seats should’ve been black on this car.

  • Alduin

    1998-2002 model year was better. Even though the 1993-2002 is the same car the 98-2002 is newer.
