The Plucky Little Toyota S-FR Concept Miata-Fighter Looks Amazing

Is Toyota spending so much on R&D that they have no more money to buy rights to letters? If so, that would explain both why their new small sports car concept looks so fantastic, and why they named it by juggling the same letters as in the F-RS. If only having the rights to three letters means more cars like this,… »10/08/15 9:15amYesterday 9:15am

How the One Lap of America FR-S Transformed into a Base Camry

Over its long and illustrious sales career, the Toyota Camry has been described in many ways by so-called automotive enthusiasts. Most of them, to be honest, haven’t been particularly flattering. Words like “appliance” tend to find themselves in close proximity to the Camry whenever it’s been discussed elsewhere. »5/12/15 2:39pm5/12/15 2:39pm

Redesigned Japan-Only GT86 Cb Looks Great, But Is 'For Women?' WTF?

Toyota announced a redesigned version of the GT86 (which we in the states know as the Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ) with a great-looking new front end that I think gives it the classic look of an old 240Z or an E-Type. It's called the Cb, which I'm told stands for "Cool Beauty." I'm also told it's "for women." Come on,… »2/12/15 12:25pm2/12/15 12:25pm

Toyota 86. It will be the end of me

The day the newswires lit up with details of the new back-to-basics sports car from Toyota was the day I wanted to own one. I’d been so disheartened with the state of the automotive industry and the type of cars it was making for so many years, I’d all but switched off. Driven by marketing departments rather than… »6/05/13 11:31pm6/05/13 11:31pm

World Challenge Is The Best Sports Car Racing You've Never Heard Of

Let's get this out of the way first. This is simply the most Jalop series in racing today. Perhaps nothing more needs to be said than that the two front-running teams are the Cadillac CTS-Vs and the K-Pax Volvo S60s. If that doesn't float your boat it's almost guaranteed your favorite manufacturer is represented. »4/18/13 10:09am4/18/13 10:09am

'Super 86' Is A Wonderfully Monsterized Scion FR-S

I think pretty much everyone agrees the BRZ/FR-S/Toyota 86 triumvirate is a good time on four wheels, and we're just at the cusp of what will likely be a vast ocean of race-bred variations. It looks like the Monsterization machines over in Fukishima Prefecture have been working overtime, and the result is the Super 86. »3/11/13 3:32pm3/11/13 3:32pm

Jeremy Clarkson Calls The Toyobaru 'One Of The Best Cars I've Driven In Ages'

Underneath it all, Jeremy Clarkson is a car guy. He gets it. He loves the Toyobaru almost as much as we do. A sports car balanced towards driving joy, not towards pure numbers. The numbers thing, the how-fast-can-we-drag-race-a-bunch-of-cars, is the realm of people who think more is better, not better is better. The… »11/22/12 2:00pm11/22/12 2:00pm
