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?

Budget GT3 RS Slayer: The Secret Porsche Everyone's Missing Out On

Packing usable performance and value in spades, find out what makes this hidden gem, one of the most engaging Porsche sports cars ever made

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a dream sports car for many enthusiasts, but given its high price tag, it remains unattainable regardless of the generation. A few 911 GT3 RS examples from 2007 are quoted for almost half a million dollars in the used market. You can’t just walk into a Porsche dealership and spec your new GT3 RS if you haven’t owned any Porsche before, which makes the newer 992.1 generation models cost a fortune in the used market. So, what is the best alternative to such a hardcore sportscar? Well, it’s the Boxster Spyder. No, we’re not talking about the current-gen 718 Spyder, which comes with a 414-horsepower 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six, but the Boxster Spyder from 2011.
