Since the 1960s, Toyota has surprised and delighted people with its interpretation of what makes an engaging, exciting and entertaining sports car. Many of these have gone on to earn iconic status, and it’s a selection of these landmark Toyotas sports cars that we are celebrate here.
Famous for its starring role alongside Sean Connery in the 1967 James Bond film You Only Live Twice, the Toyota 2000GT arrived on the world stage in the same year and instantly made a statement that Toyota was serious about challenging the best sports cars Europe had to offer.
On the face of it, Toyota’s most well-known family car – and the world’s best-selling vehicle – the Corolla, would seem out of place in the company of highly-focused sports cars but, in truth, over the years the Corolla has produced some of the most well-loved sporting Toyotas.
For sports car fans and Toyota purists, the arrival of the GT86 in 2011 was a welcome relief. With no MR2, Celica or Supra in the range to satisfy their cravings for the past few years, the pedigree of the GT86 was exactly what they had been waiting so long for.
The MR2 of 1984 was actually derived from a 1976 design project that had the goal of building an enjoyable, yet fuel efficient car – much like the earlier Sports 800. Over the coming years, the ethos of the original concept evolved into a sports car and the resulting ‘Midship Runabout 2-seater’ was born, joining its bigger brothers, the Celica and Supra.
Supra, the Latin word for ‘transcending’ or ‘above’, would prove to be a particularly fitting moniker for arguably Toyota’s most famous sports car.
Shown at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show, the stunning Toyota FT-1 concept represents the ultimate expression of Toyota design by building on our sports car heritage to create a vision of what the future may hold.
As the automotive world descends on the City of Light, with its great history of culture and innovation, there’s no better place than the Paris Motor Show for Toyota to showcase its vision for the future of driving.
From racing circuits to rally stages, across the world there’s a whole host of motorsport series that excite fans and now we’ve united all of Toyota's worldwide racing activities under one name: TOYOTA GAZOO Racing.
