For 2021, the recently revived Toyota Supra sports car welcomes a new turbocharged four-cylinder to the lineup that Toyota calls the intermediate model between the sub-$30,000 Toyota 86 and $50,000-plus Supra 3.0. The newly announced 2021 Toyota Supra’s price with the four-cylinder, however, leans more toward the Supra six-cylinder with a starting price of $43,985, including a destination charge. In Imagination Land, that’s enough to get you a brand-new Toyota 86 that starts at $28,015 and a pretty good used Scion FR-S, too.

What other two-seaters cost $44,000? Not many. A Nissan 370Z Nismo is $45,000, and non-Nismos are sub-$40,000, while a Mazda MX-5 Miata RF fully loaded is significantly sub-$40,000. A BMW Z4 turbo four-cylinder, the Supra’s cousin, starts at $50,695, while it’s arch nemesis, the Mercedes-Benz SLC starts at $50,945. An Audi TT is close (technically a four-seater with a really small backseat) at $46,495.

The Supra 2.0 four-cylinder is decontented under the hood with less power and fewer cylinders, as well as fewer interior features and less performance hardware that make it more comfort-oriented than the six, but externally there are only a few changes that differentiate the four-cylinder from the six-cylinder: wheels, side mirrors and exhaust tip finishing. Having driven both, you’ll get the same head turns in a four-cylinder as a six-cylinder, if that’s your thing.

For those who wanna go fast, Supra 3.0 six-cylinder pricing sees an increase now that there are more ponies under the hood — from 335 to 382 hp — plus suspension tweaks and a now-standard 8.8-inch touchscreen that was previously optional.

The 2021 Supra 3.0 base model, at $51,985 (all prices include destination), is $1,000 more expensive than before, while the 3.0 Premium, at $55,485, is $500 more expensive, and the new A91 Edition, at $56,985, is $740 more than the outgoing Supra Launch Edition. At the top of $50,000, you start to enter mid-engine Corvette territory, and the $60,000 version isn’t half bad, either. But it’s a pair of muscle cars that might give the Supra six-cylinder its greatest performance-for-the-dollar threat: the Chevrolet Camaro SS and Ford Mustang GT that can have any number of track packages and features for similar, or less, money.

See below for a rundown of what most differentiates the four-cylinder from the six-cylinder, and the differences in cost and features between the six-cylinder trim levels. The 2021 Supra 3.0 six-cylinder goes on sale in late June, while the Supra 2.0 four-cylinder hits dealerships in fall.
