Toyota Rumoured To Be Working With Subaru To Bring Back The MR2

If you’ve ever wondered, like we have, about the future of the Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86, then we think this might be part of the answer. The answer to a follow-up, yes, but also possibly the reason why neither brand has delivered a higher-performance variant of the popular small sports car.

There’s little doubt in our minds that both an 86 and MR2 could ever be seen simultaneously in Toyota showrooms. Don’t get us wrong, we’d love it but nearly all the odds are against it. The love and attention that the return of the Supra has generated could be another reason for Toyota to consider a next-generation MR2, as opposed to a new 86.

Back in 2015, Toyota revealed the S-FR Concept at the Tokyo Motor Show which could easily serve as the basis for the next MR2. The questions that remain are if, when, what powertrain and will it be affordable like the beloved MR2s of the past?
