That's probably the most credible article I've read about a future MR2. Price point is acceptable too. Hope it's designed well.

Hate the front end. The should have it re-desiged by an Italian coachwork outfit.

No reason why a 2024 MR2 couldn't be an electric nigh-supercar, but yah...that front end might look more attractive *after* the crash-testing

2024 mr2

I don't know. Except for it reminding me of the Nissan Z, I think the front end looks pretty good. Horses for courses though.

Hoping that they keep the weight low & low.

Front end gives the aftermarket another canvas.

I read an article about this a few weeks ago. Someone commented that Toyota partnered with Subaru on the 86, BMW on the Supra, and the best person to partner with on the mr2 would be lotus. My concern is that a electric/hybrid remake would be too close to a Prius or the terrible Honda CRZ, but a partnership with lotus would calm those concerns some.

See Elise, Exige, or 1st gen Tesla Roadster.

Still don't buy the fact that they need to 'partner' with another company to develop a sports car. I'm sure as hell many would've rather seen a Lexus power train on the new Supra. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a purist but the whole thing smells fishy. Yea yea, Toyota and Lexus no longer make a straight 6 but, the new one doesn't have a manual and is built in Austria. Goes both ways hahahaha.
