UPDATE: Bidding has ended for the Supra. The sale price was a whopping $121,000. Besides being a remarkable price on its own, it also is now the highest price paid for a fourth-generation Supra on Bring a Trailer. The previous high was about $40,000 less. The main text has been updated to reflect the winning bid.
You could wait for the all-new Supra to be revealed next month. We're pretty sure a Toyota dealer would let you put some money down for the Toyota/BMW venture when it finally arrives. Or, you could be like the winning bidder of this basically new 1994 Toyota Supra on Bring a Trailer and spend a shocking $121,000 for the old model.
This Supra, finished in Renaissance Red with an immaculate tan leather interior, has only 7,111 miles on it, which is astonishing for a car that has typically been used, abused and modified to untouchable status. The original 17-inch wheels and Toyota CD/cassette stereo head unit are even maintained.
Seriously, what a very cool car.
However, we're clearly not the only ones who think so, since bidding went a bit nutty going from $90,000 when we first reported on the car to the final $121,000. That price eclipses the previous high for a Supra on BaT, $80,700 for a modified 1993 Supra with 29,000 miles, by more than $40,000. By contrast, a one-owner, unmodified 1994 Supra with 95,000 miles went for $49,150 earlier this month, while a similarly red one with an automatic (ugh) and 126,000 miles managed only $32,000.
If you still have a '90s sport coupe jones to satisfy, but not $100,000 to spend on a car, don't you worry, BaT and Diamond-Star Motors currently has you covered: a Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 with 2,500 miles and a Dodge Stealth R/T with (gulp) 1,100 miles. Seriously, drive your damn cars, people.
