The other bros include the GR Supra and the Celica.
Stories about the new trio date back to 2018.
The MR2 could be a 400-horsepower hybrid.
We know that these are still only rumours about Toyota reintroducing the MR2 but we don’t really care. We love Toyota’s current direction and want them to carry on with their plans to launch more sporty cars. And the Toyota MR2 might be next.
We want it to be next, now that Toyota’s completed its global launches of the GR Yaris, GR Corolla, GR Supra, and GR 86, the time has come to set the stage for the next chapter. The MR2 is part of the brand’s “three brother” strategy which already includes the GR Supra and GR 86.
According to the Carsguide, the MR2 might be powered by a 2.8- or 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine mated to an electric motor for a total system output of roughly 400 horsepower. The MR2 should be a plug-in hybrid with a lithium-ion battery however we do not have a battery size or EV range.
With this kind of power, the MR2 should be impressively quick, faster perhaps than the GR Supra. Again, we know these are still only rumours but we want to see this in showrooms and on the road soon.
