I mean, all I want is one of the 105 GT40's produced between 1966 -1969. They are Lighter weight than a twin @ 2,682 lb
I would finish my 40 year old rebuild project! I still have the starting point for it in the basement.

Too late. The lowrider fad of the 80s cleared anything salvageable right up. A rotted out shell sells here for $3,000 to $5,000. A good car will run around $35K and a top line one up to about $80K.
Funny when we talk about cars going up in value since before the lowrider thing took off you could pick up a decent 64 Impala for under $1,000.


If the twins are going to go up in value they need to appear in a movie or some high profile fad in the next 10 years or so.

Basically all just speculation but between the arrival of the A90 Supra and Subaru changing to a single global platform, it gives me a feeling that it's unlikely the twins will see another generation. At the very least, I can't see the car continuing in it's current form, if they make another generation at all.

If a lower trim Supra becomes available for only a few thousand over the current 86 and is faster, continuing the 86 will be a hard sell, wouldn't it?

Everybody calm down. We have no clue what is real yet and every clickbait that posts is adding their own level of bullshit.


Since I do not feel like repeating the same thing in the inevitable 100 threads to come.

By the time we get through 3 or so more clickbaits they will be saying that Toyota murdered Subaru in their sleep and have run off to marry BMW for their money.
