Japan’s carmaker Toyota will join forces with another automaker to develop and produce another sports model. According to the information, the partner in the project will be Subaru.
Toyota has just announced that they are considering the revival of Cellica or MR2, and it has now become clear that the company has stopped at the second option. The engineers of the company, along with their Subaru colleagues, are already working on the project, building on the basis of the Toyota S-FR concept since 2015.
So far there are no technical details about the future sports car. The latest generation Toyota MR2 was equipped with a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine, which developed 138 hp, with the car speeding from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 sec.
For the new generation of the model, however, the Japanese are obviously preparing something more powerful. According to the information so far, Toyota and Subaru teams have already joined forces to create a new 2.4-liter engine for the Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ. It is very likely that this engine will be placed under the cover of the future MR2.
The Toyota MR2 itself is a two-seater coupe that has been produced by the Japanese company for 23 years – from 1984 to 2007.
