Toyota MR2 Spyder Overview
The Toyota MR2 Spyder was introduced in 2000 as an incarnation of the MR2, which was discontinued in 1995. The Spyder had striking looks and with its lightweight body, mid-mounted engine, and rear-wheel drive, the Spyder was a favorite among those who love to drive.
The MR2 Spyder resembles the Porche Boxster that was released a few years earlier. Though named the MR-S in Japan, Toyota thought that in America drivers would not buy a car named "Mrs.," so they changed the S to the "Spyder" designation.
The MR2 Spyder is popular for racing, with most racers swapping out the engine for a more powerful version. There are also turbo-charged Spyders on the racing circuit.
The MR2, along with the Celica, was discontinued in 2005 due to slow sales and increased competition.
