The Japanese automaker famously partnered with Subaru to bring the 86 to life and then with BMW to make the fifth-gen Supra. As the market for sports cars has slowly declined in recent years, Toyota has shown that one way to still produce such vehicles is to collaborate with another car manufacturer to share research, development, and production costs. In theory, it could do just that with Porsche to create a new MR2.
Tada stopped short of saying anything more about a new MR2, but it did get us thinking. The previous model featured a mid-engined layout, and so do both the Porsche Boxster and Cayman. It would, therefore, make for an ideal match – but we don’t know what Weissach thinks about that, so for now, that’s all wishful thinking.
