PostHeaderIcon Don’t Tease Us With This MR-2 Buzz, Toyota!

Now that the Toyota Supra has returned to our lives, would it be fair to ask if Toyota brings back the MR2 as well? Well, it looks like we don’t have to ask because there are already rumblings that the Japanese automaker is considering bringing back another one of its famous performance car nameplates. The MR2 may not have the same household name qualities as the Supra, but, for a time between the 1980s and the 2000s, the MR2 was just as big and as popular as its big brother. The lightweight, mid-engined sports car was Toyota’s go-fast go-getter, seamlessly slotting between the bigger Supra and what was Toyota’s pocket rocket at that time, the Celica. Rumors of the MR2’s return have floated around the ether for some time, but it now looks like there’s more to these rumors than we thought.

PostHeaderIcon Forget The Supra For a Second; Whispers Abound That Toyota’s Also Bringing Back the MR-2!

Understandably, the Toyota Supra is all that everyone’s talking about these days. It’s scheduled to make its long-awaited debut at the 2019 North American International Auto Show and just yesterday, leaked photos of the production version made their way to the Internet. But don’t focus all of your attention on the Supra just yet because it appears that it’s not the only retro Toyota sports car that’s making a comeback. Brace yourselves for months, maybe even years, of anticipation, folks. Word has it that Toyota is bringing back the MR2 as part of a joint development with Subaru. Neither Toyota nor Subaru have confirmed these plans, but if it’s true, our dreams of reviving the nostalgia of Toyota’s trinity of sports cars is two-thirds of the way from becoming reality.

PostHeaderIcon The New Toyota MR2 Could Arrive in 2021 and it Might be an All-Electric Sports Car

The original Toyota MR2 was a fantastic little Japanese sport compact, offering crisp mid-engine, RWD handling for a fraction of the cost of some European exotic. Unfortunately, Toyota axed the MR2 in 2007, and since then, enthusiasts have been left out in the cold. Now, however, it’s looking like the Mister Two might be heading for a resurgence, all thanks to EV tech.

PostHeaderIcon Will the Toyota Celica and MR2 Join the Supra and 86 in an Epic Sports Car Lineup?

After 16 years of absence from the sports car world, Toyota returned by reviving the Supra, and now the MR2 or the Celica may get a second lease of life. The Japanese manufacturer voiced interest, through the Supra’s key engineers, of reviving at least one of those two emblematic cars, but the road ahead is tough for that dream to materialize.

We’ve all waited 16 years for a new Supra to emerge and now, with the fifth-gen A90 closer than ever to production, there might be more in store for us from Toyota. Masayuki Kai, the Assistant Chief Engineer on the Supra project, said to Road & Track that “We want to have Celica back, we want to have the MR2 back,” but he was also adamant to point out that “what will come next depends on the market needs.”

This is because, as Kai pointed out, creating a sports car is tedious in the year 2018 and highly expensive, pointing to the cooperation with BMW as the only way to bring the Supra back. The GT86 is also the product of a shared project, this time with Subaru. We can assume, as such, that another partner must be found to finance and co-develop an MR2 or Celica follow-up. Otherwise, we won’t see any new sports car from Toyota other than a new GT86 in conjunction with a new BRZ and the production version of the Le Mans-esque Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Prototype.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota MR2

Originally produced between 1984 and 2007, the Toyota MR2 is a legendary little sports car, boasting a cult-like following and all the right stuff to make any auto enthusiast’s mouth water. Throughout the MR2’s 23-year career, Toyota ushered in three individual generations, consisting of the W10 between 1984 and 1989, the W20 between 1990 and 1999, and the W30 between 2000 and 2007. The name is a reference to the drivetrain layout (mid-engine, rear-wheel drive), while the “2” denotes the number of seats in the cabin. The original formula goes something like this – transverse mid-engine, rear-wheel drive, sharp, responsive handling, very little weight, small exterior dimensions, and an affordable sticker. All told, the Toyota MR2 is a true-blue classic, a pure driver’s ride, like a compact Japanese Ferrari without the exotic price tag. And now it’s looking like Toyota might bring it out of retirement.

The speculation stems from a recent statement made by Gazoo Racing head Tetsuya Tada, who told Evo at the 2017 Geneva Show that he hopes to have “The Three Brothers” back in the Toyota lineup “as soon as possible.” In case you were wondering, those “brothers” include the Supra, the Celica, and the MR2, Toyota’s iconic ’90s-era performance machine trio. Word has it we’re inching closer to a reveal of the new Supra, and the current GT86 is a decent replacement for the Celica, but what about a new Mister Two? We got curious, so we drew up a rendering and put together a few theories.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota to have a Trifecta of Sports Cars Once Again

Remember the good old days when Toyota actually had a presence in the sporty performance segment with cars like the Toyota Supra, the Toyota Celica, and the Toyota MR2? All three have since died a sad and emotional death among those that loved them, but there’s new hope for the future, and Toyota just might have three performance models in its lineup once again. We already knew about the Supra, which is being designed in part with BMW, and the GT86 is, by all rights, a successor to the Celica, so the brand is just missing the MR2, and we could see its successor in the very near future if reports from Evo are correct.

Speaking to Evo at the Geneva Auto Show, Tetsuya Tada – a Toyota engineer and the Chief of Gazoo Racing – kindled the fire, saying, “We hope to have the three brothers in place as soon as possible.” All but confirming that a third model succeeding the MR2 is in the works is big news, and while details are still under wraps at this time, we know it’s coming fast, and we may have already seen some hints as to what it might look like thanks to the Toyota S-FR Concept that debuted at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Show. Ideally, it should maintain the same general dimensions to take on models like the Mazda Miata.

And, the best part about all of this is that the third sports car will, of course, have Mr. Tada’s hands all over it, so that means light-weight and simple – a true competitor in the compact sports car market. According to Evo, Toyota is even working on bringing the hybrid technology from its LMP1 racers so it could still end up being mid-engined. There’s no guarantee that it will be hybrid from the start, but Tada told Evo that Toyota is “Working very hard” and making a hybrid sports car a reality.
