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!

Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller, D-WV, held an all-day summit on Thursday to discuss the dangers of using modern technology while driving, during which an ad that Mazda aired during the Super Bowl was used as an example of the worrisome future towards which we're headed. While seemingly innocuous at first glance, the ad, which can be seen below, shows a brief glimpse of a driver using the Mazda Connect infotainment system in a Mazda3 to check/update his Facebook page while driving down the road.

Officials from major communications companies like Samsung, Google and Apple attended the summit, as well as representatives from automakers including General Motors and Toyota. A representative from Mazda was not present despite the company's own currently available technology being used as the poster child for the issues being discussed.
According to Automotive News, Senator Rockefeller warned the automaker and communication execs on hand that he will propose legislation to regulate the use of technology while driving if they don't work together to implement their own standards more quickly. Michael Robinson, GM's vice president of sustainability and global regulatory affairs, argued that his company has had distracted driving guidelines in place for 15 years since the advent of its OnStar system, noting that the technology in question has also helped the automaker save lives through automatic crash detection and calls to 911.
We've written about approximately 187,000 rumors about a return of the Toyota Supra to the land of living cars. There are a couple of good reasons for this: first, Toyota won't stop dropping hints about a new halo sports car. Late this summer, Toyota sales guru Kazuo Ohara called a Supra successor "one of the options we have" - a comment followed by a hint that there would be "better news" on the subject in the future.

The second reason for all the Toyota tales is, of course, that we all have missed the Supra since its departure from the US market in 1998. So, when a member of the Autoblog team is party to a nudge-and-wink-filled conversation about a new Supra concept headed to January's Detroit Auto Show, we tend to listen up.
A 400+ horsepower hybrid sports car would match up pretty well with the upcoming NSX.
After releasing official pictures and a press release about an hour earlier, Toyota chose an aircraft hanger at the Santa Monica airport as the venue for the global introduction of its highly anticipated 2014 Corolla. Following an extended aerial acrobat show, which included performers running along the walls, swimmers romping in a massive overhead clear plastic pool and angry dancers destroying their cardboard stage in a glittery fit... the all-new C-segment star of the show was lowered on cables from the ceiling. (After the strobe lights and pounding sound that preceded it, the final vehicle reveal was almost anticlimactic.)
Face-to-face with the eleventh-generation sedan, we liked what we saw. Compared to last year's Corolla, the new model appears smaller in person - yet that is mostly an optical illusion. By the tape, it is four inches longer and slightly wider than its predecessor, but a bit shorter. The wheelbase has been stretched nearly four inches, yet the front and rear overhangs only give or take about an inch in the conversion. With the exception of the enormous wheel/fender gap (the new Corolla seems to ride too high), its overall proportions are very pleasing.
The fresh styling is modern and stylish, with sculpted lines that add character to a formerly bland sedan
