Toyota’s latest Supra model has not met the expected sales figures, despite being a flagship sports car. Sales have dropped significantly in the first quarter of this year, down by 44 percent compared to the same period in 2023 (source). With strong competition from Nissan’s more affordable and powerful Z model, Toyota’s Gazoo Racing Supra needs a strategic overhaul. The decision to discontinue the underperforming four-cylinder variant and introduce a manual transmission option for the 3.0-liter inline-6 version indicates a shift in focus.

The latest iteration of the Supra, now exclusively available with the 3.0-liter engine, introduces new trim levels such as “3.0” and “3.0 Premium” with updated color choices for the exterior and interior. Despite these changes, the starting price for the GR Supra 3.0 has significantly increased to $56,250, while the 3.0 Premium variant is priced at $59,400. This pricing places the Supra in a tough position compared to its more powerful and affordable rivals, such as the Nissan Z and Ford Mustang.

For enthusiasts seeking a more budget-friendly yet exhilarating driving experience, the GR86 presents a compelling alternative. With its agile handling and lower price point starting at $29,300, the GR86 has gained popularity and outsells the GR Supra by a significant margin.

Conclusion

In conclusion, while the 2025 Toyota GR Supra undergoes minor changes and discontinues the four-cylinder model, its pricing may pose a challenge against competitors. Enthusiasts looking for a more cost-effective sports car option may find the GR86 a more appealing choice based on its performance and value proposition.
