Well, again, this is based on a quote from the President ordering his Chief Engineer to make a Supra successor post-haste. There are a few articles out there with the substance of ghosts to corroborate this, but it's a lead nonetheless. I have to imagine that they've taken note of the GT-R price structure and how it 's continuing to sell. They started at what, 75k in '08 and now retail for 110k? And continue to hold steady sales?
Plus the new NSX is coming out and the Evo is all about dead. If it's anywhere from $50-100k I think there's market space for it.
GTR is 550hp / AWD / 3800 lbs. Love to see the new Supra be 450 hp / RWD / 1000 lbs lighter and super tuneable.
