- We hear that the MR2, a lightweight mid-engined sports car that Toyota sold in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s, could make a comeback.
- It's possible that the new MR2 will make the transition to being either a purely electric model or a hybrid, given Toyota's push toward electrification.
- If it comes to fruition, the revived MR2 is still pretty far off. We expect it to arrive in 2024 with a starting price somewhere around $45,000.
