Toyota's Upcoming Sports Car May Cost More than a Corvette

Sports Car

That means it'll cost close to $60,000.

A few days ago, word came out that the joint BMW-Toyota sports car project was moving along right on schedule. In the coming months we should start seeing the first spy shots of both cars testing in various locales. But in the meantime, details are beginning to pour in regarding other bits, in today’s case: pricing. Car and Driver claims that it’s received information from an inside Toyota source that the mid-size sports car, potentially to be called Supra, is likely to cost more than a base Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which runs for about $55,000.

If this is true, then Toyota is talking about some serious power output here. If it wants to charge this price, then buyers are going to rightly demand performance. Around 400 horsepower coming from a turbocharged V6 paired to an electric motor sounds realistic. RWD has already been confirmed. Now, the question is how much will BMW’s version cost? After all, BMW is a premium brand. In other words, the as-yet-unnamed BMW sports car can’t serve as a Z4 replacement, but more likely a competitor to the likes of the Jaguar F-Type. BMW will surely make full use of its carbon fiber expertise to keep weight down as well. Bottom line: neither car will be considered affordable, but their performance capabilities should more than make up for it.
