White - Mr2 No Turbo Charger on 2040-cars
Palmdale, California, United States
My wife bought this car new and within 90 days someone turned left in front of her on Pacific Ave. Venice and there is no where to go. It did extensive damage to the front end but because it was such a square hit the unitized frame/body did not suffer any twisting or mishaping. The insurance company still felt it was cheaper to pay it off then to repair it. My wife took the money and had Venice Beach Auto Body, repair the car. This same business is still in operation. In 2007 I bought the car from her for business write off purposes for using my own car. I then began going through the car mechanically for maximum reliability during my 100 mile round trip daily for my work. In 2010 I switched over to my pick-up for that travel and keep the MR2 for a back-up vehicle. I have since retired and although I have had it sitting in the driveway ever since, I have just now decided that I should sell it.
This car has always been Smoke-Free,
It's radio is the top of the line Toyota radio for that year. It is an AM/FM, and cassette stereo player.
The stock speakers in the headliner are no longer available so I had these reconditioned approx. 3 years ago.. Nothing else fits in that space.
With the exception of the body work and the catalytic converter (Magic Muffler) all repair work has been at Marina Toyota in Marina Del Rey and I have the complete folder of receipts and work orders for this car.
I don't think there is much difference in the DMV's everywhere. Paper work must be completed in advance and received and registered by the DMV. Payment will be cash, certified check or paypal. I am a member of AAA and we may well be able to do it at a AAA office.
This is going to be a great find for whomever buys this car. With very little work and new paint, this car will look fantastic and easily admired by those with an eye for cars.

"In the future, out of 100 customers, we want to excite ten of them instead of not offending all 100."
Almost all of the details about the Toyota New Group Architecture (TNGA) strategy have come out since the initiative was first reported on in March of this year, but Autoblog did learn a few new things about it on a recent trip to Japan. Probably the second-most important detail is that each new segment platform will be based around a common hip point to create an "optimal driving position architecture."
We've seen (and frankly reported on) so many rumors of more powerful and performance-focused versions of the Subaru BRZ, Toyota GT86 and Scion FR-S at this point that haven't materialized that, at this point, we're almost tired of them. Almost. But what we have here was enough to pique our jaded interests as only a carbon-bodied sports car on the Nürburgring could do.

What we're looking at is, well, we don't quite know, to tell you the truth. What we can tell is that it's a Toyota GT86 (Scion FR-S for us) wearing new wheels and a carbon-fiber hood, roof, racing-spec rear wing and subtle lip spoiler. The vents in the hood indicate that the prototype in question could be packing an upgraded engine to go with the lighter body panels and upgraded aero, and the interior (at least as far as we can see) looks pretty well stripped out.
The right-hand drive configuration tells us this is either destined for former territories of the British Empire or for the racetrack. Considering the ride height, full glass and apparent lack of roll cage, our money's on this prototype is being developed for the Japanese Domestic Market, where Toyota badges the sports car simply as the 86. We can always hope, though, that some version makes it into Scion showrooms in North America... we just won't get our hopes up too high.
At the end of December, 2013 Toyota had a cash stockpile of 1.8 trillion yen ($17.5B US). As of March 31, at the end of its current financial year, company coffers are expected to swallow another 1.9 trillion yen ($18.4B US) in net profit - said to be a record sum for the Japanese automaker. In a gesture signaling a turnaround from the horrors of the global recession, Bloomberg reports that Toyota will buy back 60 million shares of its stock, as much as 1.89 percent of the company, for something like 360 billion yen ($3.5B US). It's the first buyback since 2009 and the largest buyback since 2003, when it spent roughly 390 billion yen ($3.8B US) repurchasing shares.
Company president Akio Toyoda founded the Toyota Mobility Foundation (TMF), a non-profit that will support international groups working on transportation issues in emerging markets. Half of the stock that Toyota buys, 30 million shares, will be sold to the foundation via the Japanese Trustee Services Bank for one yen per share, the dividend providing the foundation's initial funding. The other 30 million shares will be canceled, a company spokesman telling Reuters that the company wants to reward shareholders.
Industry analysts have been asking Toyota to either return money to shareholders or invest in new factories, but Toyota has ruled out the latter. After getting burned with excess capacity when the financial crisis came, the company is focused on extracting efficiencies from the plants it already has. Toyota has said it plans to complete the buyback by June of this year.
