Among the many JDM icons is Toyota’s MR2. The compact, mid-engine sports car arrived in 1984, preceding another Japanese icon – the Mazda MX-5 Miata. The MR2 was nicknamed the “poor man’s Ferrari” and officially ended production in 2007, after three generations. After nearly 20 years, however, Toyota is making plans to resurrect a mid-engine model.
The fourth-generation Toyota MR2 is planned to debut in 2025, which at the time of writing is just two years away. We know Toyota isn’t bothered to develop its own sports car from the ground up, unless it is a sporty version of a regular car, like the GR Yaris or GR Corolla. Naturally, this means the Japanese car automaker is, once again, teaming up with another company – two of them in this case – in order to provide some epic fan service to JDM fans.
Toyota, with help from its legendary Gazoo Racing division, has been on a roll, introducing exciting performance models but the next-generation Toyota MR2 might be a bit different in this regard since it doesn’t look like it will bear the GR initials. Nevertheless, there is much excitement about the Japanese mid-engine model that makes it a proper, old-school JDM icon, and here are 10 things you need to know about it.
