2002 Toyota Mr2 Spyder Convertible * Immaculate For A Collector * on 2040-cars
Woodland Hills, California, United States
Im an NOT entertaining ANY offers below $15,000 . This 2002 Toyota MR2 Spyder has 22,750 original and genuine low impact miles. All from one owner (until another collector bought it who only put 45 miles on it). I have all the DMV registration papers showing the same owner until 2013 and all the few limited TOYOTA services from new, proving the miles. I bought this plus another MR2 as collectable but should really only keep one of them. You cant find a car like this very often so its very rare. Its been babied all its life. Most you'll see have 85,000 to 180,000 miles and are pretty rough as you'd expect. This car should last you for years and appreciate. 100% stock Toyota parts so easy to replace if you do need to. The shine on the original paint remains incredible like new. When I bought it recently, I had the limited minor scuffs on the rims 100% fixed ($330), registered it with CA DMV ($560), smogged, 4 Yokohama tires just to have newer tires than the originals they came with, had TOYOTA of Northridge check EVERYTHING and I spent over $400 on a tiny hidden leak that you would not have even seem as its covered with a pan as I believe a collectable should be perfect. Had the drive floor mat hooks replaced. See photo on the Toyota rack! I have all the paperwork. I had a K&N air filter installed and synthetic oil although it did not need an oil change but I'm kind of anal about that kind of thing. The top and interiors are absolutely perfect, almost no scuffs or marks, it really is factory (+ 1 year) condition, what you'd expect from a car that is perhaps 1 year old and carefully driven. Such a stunning car, people constantly ask me about it, or ask me at traffic lights what car it is! You will need to arrange pick up. Payment by bank wire only within 1 business day of the offer / acceptance. Great for a fun car, 2nd car, for a partner or kid or just drive occasionally and watch it appreciate. Its to reliable you could have it as an everyday car. Ive put about 500 miles on it to make sure it runs well... plus its so fun. You cant go wrong with a Toyota. If I don't sell, I'll keep it as a collectable... You really cant price a car in this condition. Its worth what you think its worth, like a '65 mustang.... on paper its not worth much. To someone who wants it.......... much more.... I am still driving it a little as its so much fun and its very sunny here in Los Angeles! A couple of tiny stone chips on hood (typical) that are hardly noticed with exact paint color touch up. I have set this up so you can make an offer of at least $15,000, or more. You can still "buy now". It is of course sold "as-is".
** I'll throw in the car cover I have for this. ** ** I see some of you have tried to bid lower.... please read this paragraph!

With the April 15 tax deadline just a few months away, our US readers will be faced with a decision should they get a refund: save or spend? It seems this issue is one many of us face whenever there's a windfall, trying to decide whether we should set the money aside in an account of some sort or use it as a down payment on a new car or a trip to the Apple store. Unsurprisingly, major corporations face a similar, albeit more complex, issue.

Take Toyota, for example. With President Akio Toyoda at the helm, the Japanese manufacturer has gracefully weathered recalls and natural disasters, all while turning beaucoup profits. Last quarter, profits quintupled to 434.4-billion yen ($4.3-billion USD), according to Bloomberg. Toyota also upped its forecast for the end of fiscal year 2013 (which ends on March 31 for Japan), to a record 1.9-trillion yen (about $18.8 billion). Now, the Japanese brand is reportedly sitting on a cash pile of nearly $40 billion, leaving Toyoda-san in an envious predicament - what should the company do with all that money?
Some think Toyota should be doing something, anything with that big stack of cash.

Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show next week, all of which were developed by and for people who live active lifstyles. Four of them are the result of the Toyota Dream Build Challenge, which tasked a team of athletes and vehicle customization shops to build Toyota sedans, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles in seven weeks that would enhance performance in their respective sports.
We'll lead off with the CamRally Camry, developed by NASCAR driver Parker Kligerman, Kyle Busch Motorsports and Mooresville, NC shop Detroit Speed, Inc. for the Dream Build Challenge, because it appeals to us gearheads (sure, call us one-sided). It was totally transformed into a rally vehicle, and it has to be the most badass Camry we can remember seeing. The sedan is always a bit flaccid-looking in stock form, but the CamRally's wide body and other exterior upgrades and the turbocharger make us forget about that, as do its stripped, painted interior and Sparco race seat.
Toyota has sat quietly on the sidelines as many of its competitors have armed themselves in recent years with lower-displacement turbocharged four-cylinder engines in an effort to gain better fuel efficiency numbers and flatter power curves. It's a strategy largely shared by fellow countryman Honda, who turned away from offering forced-induction four-cylinder models in North America after its first-generation Acura RDX failed to find buyers. Toyota itself has no lack of experience with turbo fours, having built some humdingers for cars like the MR2 and Celica All-Trac back in the 80s and 90s. It's also offered factory-warranted turbos through its TRD performance parts division more recently.
Now, Automotive News is reporting that the world's largest automaker is finally poised to rejoin the turbo-four production-car fray in North America, but it won't be a sports car that delivers the first force-fed punch, it will be a new small crossover model for Lexus. We first showed you spy shots of the NX last week in mule form, and Automotive News says the small softroader will carry a 2.0-liter turbo four in its engine bay when it rolls on to world markets in 2014 or early 2015. That model, the NX 200t, will be joined by the NX 300h, a hybrid variant. It isn't immediately clear when US buyers will see the turbo model, however, it's possible that the hybrid could bow first - the story quotes an anonymous company source suggesting that Americans might not see the engine offering until sometime in 2015.
AN further posits that the new 2.0-liter will likely supplant the company's 2.5-liter V6 in the IS sedan and the same-displacement four-cylinder in the Toyota RAV4, but does not indicate where the new engine will be built.
