You can now build your Toyota GR Supra on Toyota Canada’s website. Let’s have a little fun.

Build Your Car configurators are always a lot of fun, even when there’s no way in the world you could ever afford whatever you’re building. In the case of the 2020 Toyota Supra configurator, however, we’re actually playing in the realm of rear-world possibilities. We also can see how much it will cost us per month to lease and to be honest, it’s not that bad.

For starters, there’s only one available version of the new Toyota Supra in Canada which starts at $64,990. Buyers get a turbocharged inline-six making 335 horsepower sent to the rear wheels through an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Safety features including Lane Departure Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Monitoring, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control, and automated braking. Other standard features including parking assist with rear collision warning, a rear-view camera, leather seats, sport exhaust, sport mode, leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats and dual-zone climate controls. Active Differential, Adaptive Variable Suspension, Active Steering and launch control are also part of the base package.

In other words, you’re getting quite a bit of bang for your buck and the only real decision you have to make when buying a Supra is deciding the exterior color. There are seven exterior shades available for the 2020 Toyota Supra including Absolute Zero (white), Turbulance Gray (silver-ish), Nitro Yellow, Renaissance Red, Nocturnal (black), Downshift Blue and Phantom (dark gray). The latter along with Nitro Yellow are extras.

It looks really good in black and blue, but the Supra has complex body work which doesn’t really shine in dark tints. Nitro Yellow makes the car pop, but we’re going for maximum resale value here and yellow isn’t the way to go. And so with that in mind, we’re checking the Phantom box. It’s a $1,615 option, but we’re going to lease it and it’s only about $7 more to add the color. We’re also going with the red leather interior because dark gray+red=awesome. There are two maintenance package plans offered, but we’re not going there. We’re more the pay-as-you-go type.

Why lease the 2020 Toyota Supra?

Because we think it could become a valuable car that may not appreciate, but won’t depreciate too much. In our scenario where we lease for 36 months and pay $1,144 per month everything included at 5.89 % with 20,000 kilometers per year, the end of lease payment would be $38,830.90. In three years we will know where the Supra is going value-wise, and we could have a car worth $45,000 or a car worth $35,000 on our hands. We can then decide what to do with it.

Given that this is a two-seat, cannot-be-your-only-car type of deal, we’re hoping it gives us a good return. We don’t want to risk being stuck with a car that goes the other way, however, on a 60-month financing contract at 5.19 % interest.
