Mr2 Turbo With T-tops & Leather Interior on 2040-cars

The nice weather is here and you are tired of driving your boring, mundane car... get a fun, fast, open-top summer toy as well as a collectible classic! Or give this as one heck of an awesome graduation gift!

I'm selling one of my MR2s; it is metallic green with t-tops, leather interior, good A/C, premium wheels, custom exhaust, adjustable shocks, uprated springs, J-spec engine freshly rebuilt with all new bearings and crank, JDM ct-26b ceramic bearing turbo (boosts to 12psi), Spearco intercooler, HKS Turbo timer, digital boost gauge, clear corners, HID headlights, cross-drilled and slotted rotors and more.

Pictures tell the story. The car is very nice, clean and fast, t-tops do not leak, but it is not flawless, it is a 21 year old car. On the other hand, flawless versions like this one sell for $14K (do a search to confirm), so the asking reflects reality.  Please bear in mind, while there are minor paint chips and the like, and 5th gear is worn, this car is the most desirable version: post-93 (suspension and handling improvements from earlier versions), Turbo (there is no comparison between turbo and non-turbo, 'nuff said), T-tops (oddly, there seems to be a recent glut of the hardtop coupes available; but you miss out on all the sunlight streaming in, wind in your hair action!) and has the leather interior (MUCH nicer than cloth).  All of these add significantly to the price and desirability of this vehicle.  You will still find some cars offered on the cheap, but they are invariably tired, worn-out, poorly running cars, frequently butchered beyond belief; if that is what you want to buy, fine, but this isn't that! This car is well sorted, looks great, and drives fast and smooth. 

Now, if you have not driven a turbo MR2, let me assure you that this is the most bang-for-your-buck sports car you can probably find on the planet!  It is just so much fun to drive!  Also, if you are a gear head, you can modify this car to your heart's content.  There are plenty of 500HP+ MR2 builds out there, but I have no conceivable clue what you could want that kind of power to weight ratio for!  As is, this car is fast and nimble enough for just about anything you could want to do on the streets.  In addition, there is a huge online community of folks who know everything there is to know about these cars and how to do just about anything you could imagine to them.  Great folks.

OK, so as to try to avoid all the scammers out there: Serious buyers only. No tirekickers. Test drives only to those who have cash ready to go. Sold As Is and Where Is. No, I will not take PayPal. Cash or cashiers check only. No, I will not accept payment more than the amount of the car and "return" the overage. You must either pick the car up yourself or arrange your own transport. If you have some other sort of scam idea, DON'T waste my time. (Wow, I sound really bitter, but I have seen and heard too many...)

Toyota SEMA concepts promote active lifestyles, rallying [w/video]

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 17:15:00 EST

Toyota has six vehicles that it's bringing to the Specialty
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 sells six of 10 of hybrids in California

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 15:31:00 EST

In an apparent shot back at Ford's increasing market share of electrified vehicles and claim that it accepts more Prius trade-ins for its own hybrids than any other car, Toyota has flexed a muscle and played the numbers game to put the Blue Oval in its place.
Leaning on its hybrid market dominance in California, the Japanese automaker stated that six out of 10 hybrids sold in the Golden State are Toyota models. And it keeps coming: Year-to-date through May 2013, Toyota sold five times more hybrids than Ford. One of every two hybrids in California is a Prius model. In addition, Toyota notes that it has sold 1.5 million Prius vehicles in the US, 90-percent of which are still on the road today.
Want more? We'll let Bill Fay, Toyota's group vice president and general manager of sales lay the smack down:

Tesla pulling plug on Toyota RAV4 EV battery deal

Mon, 12 May 2014 11:31:00 EST

The future of the Toyota RAV4 EV appears to be in doubt. Tesla supplies the EVs battery packs, and it says that production ends later this year.
"Toyota is expected to end the current RAV4 EV model this year," Tesla said in its quarterly financial filing obtained by Bloomberg. "Our production activities under this program are expected to end in 2014," the company said.
This timeline fits closely with the original production plans for the RAV4 EV. When the $100-million project was first announced, Tesla said that it expected to supply battery packs for the vehicle from 2012 to 2014. Building components for the Japanese automaker continues to bring in money, though. In the company's Q1 2014 letter to shareholders, it said: "Automotive revenue included $15 million of Toyota powertrain sales." According to Bloomberg, Toyota has sold just 1,594 RAV4 EV models from 2012 through April 2014. Initially, the business had estimated that it would sell 2,600 units of the electrified crossover.
