Toyota made quite a few changes to the Supra for the 2021 model year. The biggest change of all was the introduction of the GR Supra 2.0 – a more affordable, four-cylinder model. After eagerly waiting to see how much the Supra 2.0 will cost, we know now that the entry-level sports car will have a starting price of $43,945 (including the $955 destination fee). That makes it much cheaper than the Supra 3.0, which gets a price increase, but not as cheap as we thought it would be.

For 2021, pricing the GR Supra 3.0 now starts at $51,945, $1,000 more than the 2020 model. The Supra 3.0 Premium now has a starting price of $55,445, an increase of $500 from before. The new, special edition A91 model will cost $56,945, which is $740 more than the Launch Editions from 2020. So, the Supra 3.0 will continue to be offered in three trims, while the Supra 2.0 will only be available in one.

With that breakdown out of the way, the Supra 2.0 is $8,000 cheaper than the Supra 3.0. While that’s a substantial difference, it doesn’t necessarily make the four-cylinder sports car a good deal. At just shy of $44,000, the Supra 2.0 is more expensive than the Ford Mustang GT ($37,075) that packs a 460-horsepower V8 engine and the Chevrolet Camaro 1SS ($38,495) that’s powered by a 455-hp V8. They may be different types of sports cars, but still, those are better value options with much more performance.

Where the Supra 2.0 is a good value option is when you compare it to sports cars from luxury brands. The Audi TT comes with a 228-hp engine and costs $46,495. The mid-engine Porsche 718 Cayman costs $58,850 and comes with a 300-hp engine. The Supra 2.0 is also cheaper than the base BMW Z4 sDrive30i, which costs $50,695. Against those, the Supra 2.0 stands out as offering good performance for a relatively low price tag.

With 127 less horsepower, less convenience features, and less performance-oriented components, Toyota really sees the Supra 2.0 as a totally different sports car from the Supra 3.0. We’re inclined to agree, as the Supra 2.0 is aimed toward a different demographic than the Supra 3.0. Still, if you have an extra $8,000 to spend on a luxury sports car, we think the Supra 3.0 is worth the upgrade, despite the increase in pricing for 2021.

Both the 2021 Supra 2.0 and Supra 3.0 will arrive in dealerships later this summer. If you’re not interested in the new Supra 2.0 model or the revisions that Toyota made for the Supra 3.0, Toyota has extended its 0% APR for up to 60 months offer on the 2020 GR Supra in certain regions of the U.S. This kind of a deal is rare to see on an all-new sports car and could see you save thousands in interest compared to a conventional APR rate. If the finance rate isn’t for you, Toyota is also offering a $3,500 rebate on the sports car.
