Toyota to bring back the MR2?

Toyota mr2

Toyota recently announced it’s considering bringing the MR2 name back, but for a all new sporty hybrid model. Many die hard fans of the light-weight giant killer will be dissapointed who want to see the MR2 return in a revised form.

There is hope, though. Toyota Executive Vice President Masatami Takimoto said the car should cost around $28,000 USD and boast a 7.5-second 0-100kmh. Not an  exceptional time by anyone’s measure, but the vehicle should be a rear-driver with a modified Prius drivetrain. Wait and see.
