Toyota Soarer/Chaser market review

The Z30 Soarer which appeared in 1991 deserves far greater respect than is currently available in the used market.

SC400 versions with one of the sweetest V8s built in recent years cost the same as a Celica of similar age, as do 3.0-litre versions.

Twin-turbo Soarers do better and some of the later cars can exceed $15,000. Really good 2.5TT survivors are so rare they should be sitting in glass cases but that seems not to be happening and soon there will be none left.

In fact you can currently pay more for the big, fast but dull Chaser sedan that commands hero-car status in Japan for its drift-track exploits.

The later Mark X sedan has a modernised and compact body but for reasons that are hard to follow they cost less than a 1990s Chaser.
