As it's been said a million times, you can't do a straight conversion.

I predict a ~24k MSRP +/- $500 bucks depending on how the Yen swings this year.
Meh, say it a million more and it will still be repeating like a broken record.

I would guess closer to $25k since the price quoted is 2.5mil yen. But based on those numbers you posted MatadorRacing, it could be closer to $21k. That would be a pleasant surprise.

Looks like I'm waiting for the baby FT for certain.
At least we finally we have an release date .

I say 23K is more realistic. They don't want FT-86 to hurt tC sale, so they need to up the price of FT-86 to differentiate tC from FT-86.

Hopefully it gets priced to compete with the 2.0T Genesis Coupe, so I think we can expect a sub-24k price tag.

Oh I agree. And that it would. circa $30k for a loaded, boosted model is more than fair. In fact, I'd go as far as saying that it'd obliterate the Z on a track.

My math says $24k, but I wouldn't have a problem with $21k.

$24k +/- $500 is $23,500 - $24,500 .....

Lets start a bet on the FT-86 starting price (regular NA base model, no stripped track version or turbo version or Gs).

p.s. I think the tC is a fairly different target market, but... maybe, who knows.

Dealer mark-ups on this model will be super high, especially if it lands below $28K or so.
After hearing about the engine in today's news it looks like it's worth every penny.

I don't know how Toyota can discontinue all sporty/sports car models because "they don't sell" then allow dealers to mark up their new sports car anticipating good sales.

I don't think "they don't sell" isn't the main reason why Toyota discontinues all the sports car. Some reason might be Emissions, other one could be Safety and lists just goes on

I was hoping for a mid 2012 release date so by that time I would have had full cash.

EDIT:

I just hope whenever this car comes out, it will stay true to its words. ( oh and still look good as well XD)

Well the G turned up at the UAE motor show (seen here from about 3:30 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-0O6UzfBHU)

They were talking within the next 2 years.

I think order books open Nov/Dec for May delivery.

Not to sound like your accountant but I'd wait for till 2012, esp if you don't have any money. No need to rush out and buy the first year unless you absolutely have to. I'm still getting TSB's on my Tacoma and that thing is 6 yrs old.
