How would you like to own a 1994 Toyota Supra twin-turbo? What if it was also a genuine JDM right-hand-drive model? Sound good to you?
Well, if you’re quick and have a decent amount of cash on hand you can grab this 1994 Toyota Supra right now on CarsAndBids.com. If you’re unfamiliar, Cars And Bids is an auction site created by the world’s tallest car nerd, Doug DeMuro.
What set’s Cars And Bids apart from other car auction sites is that Doug himself curates the cars before they go up for sale on his site. In other words not just any car can be sold on the site, it has to be interesting.
We’d reckon a 1994 Toyota Supra with less than 30k miles and right hand drive is pretty interesting.
As of the writing of this article the bidding currently sits at $30k. Though we imagine that by the time you read this that number would have gone up a bit.
Still, if this car manages to sell for under $40k that is a pretty decent deal. Ever since the mark V Toyota GR Supra was released, prices for the older mark IV Supra have gone up considerably.
Whenever an iconic car gets a new model, people tend to get nostalgic for what came before it and nostalgia sells. Take it from someone who camped out overnight to buy a NES Classic edition.
1994 Toyota Supra Details
This 1994 Toyota Supra is currently located in Sunland, California and has just 27,800 miles on the clock which is really good considering the car’s age.
For the most part this Supra is only lightly modified. It comes with a set of 17-inch mesh-style wheels, a front lip, side skirts, hatch spoiler, an aftermarket exhaust, and an Abarth-branded Nardi steering wheel inside.
As mentioned before this is a twin-turbo model though it should be noted that it’s an automatic not manual. That’s a bummer for those looking for a more connected driving experience. Although, it may be a plus for those who don’t want to worry about learning how to shift with their left hand.
While the 1994 Toyota Supra is really good condition, it’s not without its flaws. There is a small ding on the passenger-side rear wheel arch and some wear on the driver’s seat side bolsters.
Also, from what we can tell in the photos, the paint could definitely use a little work.
So, you might be wondering by this point how a JDM right-hand-drive Supra made its way here and is for sale.
Well, the owner purchased the car in Japan in November 2019 and imported the car to the U.S. in January 2020. According to the seller, the car has a U.S. title and was imported via the owner’s Montana-based LLC.
It’s actually becoming common practice for people to set up LLCs in Montana just to register vehicles via some loophole that we don’t totally understand if we’re being honest.
Though in this particular case there is a catch. While this Supra does have a U.S. title, it can’t be registered in California as it is not CARB (California Air Resources Board) compliant.
Maybe a registered outfit like Toprank Importers might be able to get that straightened out but it likely wouldn’t be easy or cheap. If you’re not in California then it just depends on your local laws and regulations things like this are easier in just about every state outside of Cali so your chances would be pretty good.
So, if you’re interested, we would suggest moving quick. The auction is set to end today (Marth 9th) at 12:50pm PST which is only a few hours from now.
