With just slightly over a week away until we finally get our first official details on the eagerly anticipated Toyota Supra, there has been a photo making its rounds around social media, apparently detailing the actual pricing of the Japanese (er, German?) coupe. After appearing for a brief time at the 2019 Toyota Vios Racing Festival in Clark, Pampanga, details have been pretty scarce aside from an official launch date on July 9, 2019. So it’s understandable that the revealed pricing has caused quite a stir in automotive circles.
There will apparently be eight colors for the Toyota Supra, and, while actual trims or variants have yet to be announced, it appears that there will be slight pricing differences for your chosen shade. The most expensive Supra will sport a Matte Storm Grey paint job, and will be priced at P5,090,000. The cheapest combination is the Prominence Red scheme, netting you P4,990,000. The other colors, namely Black Metallic, White Metallic, Silver Metallic, Ice Gray Metallic, Deep Blue Metallic, and Lightning Yellow, will be offered at P5,050,000. What’s more, there is a rumor going about that the Matte Storm Grey will be limited to one unit in the Philippines.
If the prices are accurate, at just slightly over five million Philippine Pesos, the non-red Toyota Supra undercuts its platform mate, the BMW Z4 M40i, by at least P700,000. Based on the pricing, our initial guesses of a single engine variant, the 3.0L six cylinder turbo with 335 hp and 500 Nm of torque, will likely be the only variant available, and will have all the niceties and technology we mentioned in our preview article. So, do you go for the Toyota Supra? Or save up just a little bit more and go for a convertible BMW Z4 M40i? Tricky choice, indeed.
