How Much Did The Toyota Supra Mk4 Cost New?

The Toyota Supra Mk4 is one of Japan’s most loved motorcars and is arguably the company’s most famous sports car. Today, the Mk4 Supra has become a real collectors item with some selling for hundreds of thousands of dollars, but how much did the car cost when it was new?

Toyota began development of the Supra Mk4 in 1989 and the car would enter production four years later. When it launched, the Mk4 Supra was one of the most advanced cars to come out of Japan and it competed with the likes of the Nissan GT-R and Mazda RX-7.

Prices for the Mk4 Toyota Supra started at US$34,225, which in today’s money is around $61,000. This is actually quite a bit more than the starting price of the Mk5 Toyota Supra at $53,990.

The 1993 Twin-Turbo Supra Mk4 started at around US$39,000 or $70,000 in today’s money. Below we have listed the different prices of the Toyota Supra for the years 1993 to 1998 and what those prices equal today.

  1. I had a 1994 turbo model that I bought right off the showroom floor, at that time the dealer had a mark up of 5k for this car. I rarely ever drove the car and placed it in the garage put the car on blocks so the tires wouldn’t be resting on the concrete, put a cover over it and changed the fluids yearly, I even had the original battery that I left on a trickle charger and it still turned the car over in 2011, it had 328 original miles on it and in 2011 my house went up in flames and so did the car, I was heartbroken, the car was a total loss, nothing could be salvaged from it, not even the motor. I look at the prices these cars are going for today and I wonder what mine would have sold for.

    • I’m sorry to hear that Joey! Sounds like an amazing car you had, and a real loss. Did insurance pay you out from it?

      I don’t really want to say what such a low mileage example of a Supra turbo would go for these days (suffice to say it would probably buy you a new house).

      If you have any photos I’d love to see them (obviously before the fire) – admin@garagedreams.net

    • Buy a brand spanking new car with a 5k dealer markup only to barely drive it before losing it in a house fire, damn son. This is one reason why when i buy a car i hoon it when nobody is looking, and stretch its legs real good on twisty back roads.
      For me, cars are made to be driven, not relegated to a garage never to see bitumen again. I actually get kind of annoyed when I see someone with a really nice car that’s only ever babied; those things should be really opened up once in a while.

      • Each unto their own I guess Ed … if people want to store their cars that is their choice, but I do agree that it’s better to use these machines as the manufacturer intended!

        It is a tragic story, nonetheless.

    • Sounds like a great car Larry. Don’t worry too much about value if you just enjoy driving it – that is the main thing (at least in my opinion). Buy a car for the fun factor first, and investment factor second!
