Jesal, you should add "if one can find a supra for sale"!

Viper, how many supras do you know of that are for sale? If you do then let me know as my cousin is genuinely looking for one as he just sold his MR2.

these imports are usually more than a decade old. The price will vary a lot depending on the condition and mods done.
You can get Miatas for 3 laks too and 5 laks too. Same with the Supra, whether its factory turbo, aftermarket, transmission, etc

Ten lakhs plus for a ten year old Supra sounds like a damn good deal for the seller to me!

You'd be lucky to find one at 10 lakhs. In 1998 the Supra turbo retailed for around 40k USD. Today you'd be lucky to find a good one for 30k USD. That's a 25% drop in 10 years. That's just how damn good those cars are.

Just checked what you wrote, and there are twin-turbo Supras available aplenty for around 7000 GBP in England. These cars have even been modded quite heavily, so I think 30k usd is a bit wide of the mark, even with today's weak USD.

Having said that, there are also Supras being sold for crazy prices in the U.S.A., so clearly, it depends on where you shop.

Yeah, Supras are pretty cheap in the UK. Imports were stopped in 1996, and they've never really been big on the mega-horsepower scene over there. But in the US, the Supra became the weapon of choice on the import circuit. Legendary Toyota reliability and insane build quality - stock engine internals have been known to put out 900 rwhp - and timeless looks. And then they released The Fast And The Furious, and the prices just went through the roof!

I heard about this. Are there any more in Surat? Wouldn't mind one, or three, at that price!
