Who would ever pay this amount?
Can you believe somebody did this to a fourth generation Supra? And to a twin-turbo variant at that. Take a breath as the pricing will aggravate you even further. So, how much does this heavily modified 1993 Toyota Supra twin turbo cost?
Ready for it? The seller wants $48,000. If you’re still interested, it’s up for sale on Craigslist Los Angeles right now and word has it this isn’t the first time it’s been up for sale. We don’t know how much it cost earlier, but clearly, its $48k asking price is a bit high, to say the least. The good news is what’s under the hood: a twin-turbo 3.0 inline-six good for around 320 hp and 315 lb-ft of torque, assuming it also hasn’t been modified.
Power is directed to the rear wheels through a four-speed automatic. The odometer reads 88,550 miles, which really isn’t too bad considering the car’s 26 years of age. Other details include a custom paint job (obviously), custom audio system, DVD player and TV, back up camera, and a leather interior.
And then there’s the issue with the roof. It’s gone. Fourth-gen Supras could be had with a targa top and we’re guessing this one originally had one but, you know, customization in the name of art. The interior has also been touched up with more yellow and an aftermarket steering wheel. The doors? Yes, they look ridiculous. Still, someone spent a lot of time and money doing these conversations and that’s their prerogative.
However, it doesn’t matter how much was spent on modifications when it comes time to sell. It doesn’t matter how many custom car awards it received (if any). The fact is this ’93 Toyota Supra twin turbo is no longer stock. Far from it. Heavy modifications like these are really nothing more than a money pit. Demand for fourth-gen Supras has surged since the arrival of the new Supra last January, but those Supras are in prime stock condition.
