Pretty close to 20 years ago. When was supercars.net around?

If it happens I hope they consider Rain Prisk's design.







I've posted his Mid Engine BRZ render many times.

We asked Toyota about the MR2, both regarding its existence as a future product and the supposed collaboration with Porsche. Here’s what a Toyota spokesman told us:

“I can confirm we have not announced any intention to produce a new MR2, and outside of that I cannot comment or speculate on a rumored new product. Same goes for your second question – I can’t speculate on any rumored new products or rumored partnerships.”

This. And there is a fairly easy co-development route they could take. Pair up with Mazda to co-develop the next NE Miata, so that Toyota could make an S-FR sized coupe from the same platform and engine. With Miata like weight and power it would be a great little coupe and my preference over the GR86.

It won’t happen of course, because Toyota already has the new GR86 and this probably fills their ‘entry level coupe’ market niche. Doesn’t stop me wanting an S-FR.

Toyota's rally three banger in a 2,300# ND Miata making ~270 whp would be pretty fucking neat.

Just stop. The only way Toyota would consider a MR2 is if it was a BEV with a range extender, but they have zero reason to introduce the MR2, nor do they have an industry partner to collaborate with on this adventure who has an MR layout, which is why a BEV is only likely. The GR86, GR Yaris and GR Supra fill all the price points for Toyota and cover the NA lightweight buyer’s needs, the AWD rally buyer’s needs and the premium turbo/power person’s needs.

The MR2 was this enigma. Who was it competing with? Was it other roadsters like the Miata or Boxster? It had a hardtop/targa in the mid 90’s. What about then? Less than a Supra, but more than a Celica, so it slotted between them, yet we didn’t really have the rally cars in the states like the WRX and EVO or even like the AWD turbo Celica GT-four, so those vehicles kind of absorbed the MR2’s spot, and roadsters became far less appealing to buyers looking for larger, safer and more practical or dual-purpose sporty vehicles.

A two-door, two-seater roadster just doesn’t make sense or sit well in Toyota’s sports car lineup. The S-FR was the closest Miata competitor showcased, and it wasn’t MR, and maybe it is still in the works for some markets or maybe the GR Yaris ultimately replaced this option or Toyota felt electrification or the existence of the RF Miata changed things. I don’t know. I feel like Toyota’s goal was always three sporty cars, and they have that.
