Seeing that the GRC seems to trend at 15k markup, I’m considering buying a used gr supra at 50-52k or a used Porsche Cayman. What do you guys think? Wait for the GRC or go with the other options considering the price is almost the same with markups?

I have a wild list of cars I could own, so I can choose a completely different type of car outside of the GRC. And given what could transpire for the process of buying a GRC, I have a list in mind or just some ideas.

If I back away, or am met with entirely too much nonsense to waste my time on, I can wait. And if the waiting doesn't show any process, I can see myself importing a JDM classic.

Same. It's the fun car/daily for me. Whether it's awd fwd rwd, 2 doors/4 doors, manual/auto, etc.

If the markup is that high then yes I would look at rwd coupe options. They're significantly better drivers cars than any hot hatch would be, but hot hatch gives you a taste of that while also giving you usability. I need awd for the winter, so I sold my Supra to get into a GRC. Great car though, real fun on a circuit.

If you can wait, just wait a model year or two. Hopefully by then, the market will go back to where it was. Was scoffed at a few years ago to even pay MSRP for a vehicle, hopefully those times return.

They’re totally different cars. Do you want the awd and a hatch with capability to seat more than 2? One is a rwd sports car while the other is a hot hatch.
Yes I understand they’re totally different cars. I’m just looking for a second car that’s fun and dailyable that I can track occasionally. Currently own a rav4. I have driven both the Supra and cayman already. Manual would be preferred but I’m ok with auto if I can get a good deal.

I hope you already got your answer. Closing this thread now. At the end of the day, it's your budget that will decide and your preferred car.
