Yes, it was a stock 1995 Toyota Supra Turbo with a six-speed and just 7000 miles on the odometer. A blip on the radar or a sign of things to come?

Looks like supply and demand made everyone a winner again. 

 

And it's just a continuation of what's been happening for a decade, exacerbated by COVID hijinks.

Didn't we talk about this being a method of money laundering?

My favorite car growing up and I'm now 41. Lots of folks have made money and want what they couldn't have then. I spent a spring break in 1998 driving a black one in Panama City Beach and it was very much fun. Many thanks to my female friend for letting me drive it all weekend.

Remember when the kids of the 60s-70s turned 40-50 and had disposable income? They spent stupid money on these:

Why should 80s-90s kids be any different?

In reply to Appleseed :

Right.  IIRC it was a Hemi Challenger that was the first to sell for over a million.

The car was not as old then as a Supra is today.

 

IIRC it was a one of one color, from 1971, when Hemi production was in single or double digits.  Could be wrong, memory fuzzy.

I used the Hemi Cuda as brash example, but any cool muscle car with a GT, SS, R/T  moniker pulled dumb money.

Good point on the muscle cars. I wouldn't pay 5k for a hemicuda other than resale, but I'd pay a lot for several 90s cars.

Prices mean nothing the the very wealthy.  Even less to me because I have nothing of value to sell.  Investment? Bragging rights?  Just wanted one and has the means?

I like this better than all of the supercars getting smashed up by people with more dollars than sense, maybe it will get cared for.

My old boss has/had a 97' spec'd out the same way, he bought around 06' for $30k, with even less miles on it.  Ourisman Toyota in Chantilly VA at the time certified it as the lowest mileage Supra in the US, and offered him $100k for it.  He turned the offer down, and he may still have the car.
