How to buy a sports car with the cheapest parts
Toyota’s upcoming Sports Car S, which is set to debut at the Tokyo Auto Show, will cost less than a $100,000 car in its first year.
That’s the lowest price yet for a sports-car in its class, according to an AutoPacific report, which cites a Toyota official.
The car will go on sale in 2021 and have a starting price of ¥5.3 million ($8,500), according to a Japanese official.
The car is the latest to launch in Toyota’s global segment.
The automaker is expected to unveil its new sports car, the Tundra, at the 2017 Tokyo Auto show in February.
The new model will also have a top speed of 130 kilometers per hour (76 mph), according a Toyota spokeswoman.
The next-generation car will be priced around $150,000, according AutoPacific.
Toyota is also expected to debut a new version of the T-Design, the flagship sports car the company has been developing for the past several years.
It will have a base price of about $150 million, according an Automotive News report.
Toyotas latest sports car comes as other automakers have launched new models that are more expensive than the ones currently on the market.
Nissan is expected this month to unveil a new model that will cost more than $300,000.
Volkswagen is also preparing to introduce a sports version of its Golf sedan.
Volkswagen recently launched a sports model called the Passat SportWagen, which costs around $90,000 ($155,000) but is expected in 2021.
