Is The Upcoming Toyota MR2 A Budget Porsche 718 Slayer In The Making?

Find out how Toyota's upcoming mid-engine sports car has the ideal ingredients to be a cut-price 718

Toyota is hard at work reviving iconic nameplates, and luckily for enthusiasts, this also extends to the brand’s sports cars. We have been hearing about Toyota MR-2’s return since 2019, but until a few months ago, we didn’t have any concise information. Reports from Japanese outlets were gradually revealing details about Toyota’s soon-to-be-revived, mid-engine sports car. In stark contrast to what we initially believed, the new MR-2 will not be a budget-friendly model, co-developed with Daihatsu and Suzuki. This turned out to be Toyota’s S-FR, which will also be sold as the new Suzuki Cappuccino and Daihatsu Copen and would compete with Mazda’s MX-5 Miata. This puts the MR-2 in a whole other league, and judging by the performance figures revealed, it would also likely be able to keep pace with most variants of the Porsche 718. Maybe even outperform it?

Here's Why The Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Doesn't Feature A Manual Transmission

Find exactly why, one of the most engaging Porsche sports cars on sale today, does not feature a stick

Unleashed and unfiltered, the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS is a swan-song for the revered gas-only mid-engined sports car. A renegade freed from corporate shackles, it embodies the Cayman’s ultimate evolution. With the GT3’s glorious naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six pumping out a healthy 493 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque, it’s a symphony of pure, unadulterated power.

Here's Why Porsche Uses The Swan Neck Rear Wing On Its GT Models

Find out how this unique wing design differs from a traditional spoiler and the benefits it offers to Porsche sports cars

The swan-neck rear wing, an aerodynamic spoiler design innovation that debuted in motorsport, emerged in response to safety regulations introduced by the Automobile Club de I’Quest (ACO) in 2009. These regulations aimed to address concerns about rear-wing-induced accidents during high-speed races. Engineers constantly tinkered, trying to squeeze out more downforce without sacrificing speed to increase on-track stability.

The One Drivetrain Feature That The Boxster Cayman Pair DO Not Offer

Great to drive but a little short on grip? Find out why the entry-level Porsche sports car has never offered AWD

The Porsche 718 Boxster, alongside its hardtop sibling, the Cayman, has evolved into a performance powerhouse in the Porsche lineup over the past two decades. Even with the base 2.0-liter 300-horsepower turbo Boxer-four engine (which sounds similar to a Subaru Boxer four, in my opinion), the 718 not only offers performance that’s useable on a day-to-day basis but also has enough potential to carve corners with precision.

Is The 2024 Porsche 718 Spyder RS A Crop-Topped Cayman GT4 RS?

Porsche's 2024 718 Spyder RS, boasting 493 horsepower, bridges Porsche's combustion heritage and its electric future. Achieving 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 191 mph, it's a powerful nod to Porsche's mid-engined legacy.

In 1996, Porsche made a bold move, transitioning from its iconic rear-engine layout to a mid-engine design with the Boxster. This sleek roadster, named after the combination of "boxer" engine and "roadster" body, introduced a new era of open-air thrills for the brand. Two decades later, in 2016, the 718 Boxster was born, inheriting the spirit of its predecessor but injecting a dose of modern performance and technology.
