Subsequent to collaborating with Subaru for the 86 and with BMW for the Supra, Toyota enlightened Road and Track a year ago regarding its craving to bring back the Celica as well as the MR2. The gossip factory continues to beat stories, for example, the one about a conceivably electric MR2 or a recovery of the mid-engined little execution vehicle with Subaru’s assistance. It presently shows up Toyota is glancing in an alternate area dependent on a somewhat astonishing articulation made by an organization official.
Talking with AutoIndustriya during a press drive of the new Supra in Japan, in all honesty the vehicle’s Chief Engineer, Tetsuya Tada, discussed a speculative restoration of the MR2 following its death in 2007.

Notwithstanding, the questioner calls attention to we can’t be 100% certain whether Tada was really being not kidding or he was just kidding. Then again, considering in Toyota’s eagerness to unite with different producers to drive down expenses and accelerate the advancement of sports vehicles, it’s not totally impossible.
A reawakened MR2 would join the 86 and Supra, yet in addition Toyota’s lead execution vehicle. We’re discussing the GR Super Sport, a completely fledged hypercar scheduled to have a crossover powertrain with some place in the area of 1,000 torque.
The Gazoo Racing setup initiated almost two years prior in Japan incorporates everything from a Vitz (Yaris) and Harrier SUV two or three Prius models, so it’s protected to say Toyota is resolved to zest up its reach start to finish. Actually, a tweet from Toyota U.K. (indeed, exactly the same Twitter account) back in February discussed plans for elite renditions for essentially the entirety of the organization’s models.
In case you’re as yet not persuaded, exactly the same Tetsuya Tada conversed with Autoblog recently about how Toyota needs to present new forms of the Supra consistently. Contemplating the all around affirmed second-gen 86 just as the TRD treatment applied to even the Camry and Avalon vehicles, expect extraordinary things from Toyota in case you’re a fanatic of execution vehicles.
