Toyota

Toyota Motor Corporation as we know it today is headquartered in Aichi, Japan. The world’s sixth-largest company in the world by revenue as of September 2018, Toyota is also the largest carmaker in the world. The company was founded back in 1937 by Kiichiro Toyoda as a car-flavoured business derived from his father’s company, called Toyota Industries. Today, Toyota has factories in most parts of the world from Japan to Australia to Bangladesh and Mexico, just to name a few. Some of Toyota’s most lucrative markets are the United States, followed by Japan, Europe, and Asia. With a hefty motorsport legacy behind, Toyota is also a spearheading company when it comes to alternative ways of propulsion, after launching the Prius in 2012 and continuing to refine the recipe to this day. Besides plug-in hybrids, Toyota, pretty much like most carmakers these days, is looking at ways to deploy the power of electricity in its lineup of vehicles. In this regard, the company experimented heavily with the RAV4 EV and the iQ EV, while also spreading its tentacles towards the hydrogen fuel-cell technology with a road-going sedan called Mirai (mirai means future in Japanese). The carmaker even released 5,600 patents for free use until 2020 in an attempt to bump up the development of hydrogen fuel-cell tech on a global scale.

With the Nissan Z about to go on sale, the Japanese company finally handed out press cars in order for us to find out how it stacks up to its competitors. Hagerty was lucky enough to get two cars – a manual and an automatic - and pit them not just against one another, but against a GR Supra, a Mustang Mach 1, and as a bonus, a 2010 Aston Martin V-8 Vantage. The results are as much surprising as they are not.

The sequel to the original Initial D series drops in 2023, and it’s shaping up to be the greatest Japanese anime about cars. Eurobeat intensifies

If you are a car enthusiast, there’s a good chance you’ve, at least, heard of Initial D.

2022 Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 Expedition By Khann International

2022 Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 Expedition By Khann International

This treatment by Khann International gives the SUV a more aggressive look

The Land Cruiser is Toyota’s longest-selling car. It was launched in 1951, and, at the end of 2019, the production had surpassed 10 million units. It is true that in the States, the model does not enjoy the same success as it does in other markets. The fact that the new LC300 generation didn’t make it Stateside says it all. But, everywhere else in the world, the Land Cruiser is actively used and enjoys great success.

Inspired by this success, Khann International came up with a very cool Expedition package that will literally take your Land Cruiser everywhere.

Recreating The Fast & Furious Toyota Supra And Making It Even Better Than The Movie Original

The ultimate Fast & Furious Toyota Supra is taking shape, and F&F advisor, Craig Lieberman, gives his input on the project

By now, there isn’t a single car enthusiast that hasn’t, at least, heard of the Fast and Furious franchise. While the series has transitioned from street racing to a super-spy gig, it all started in 2001. The original Fast & Furious movie features, arguably, the most accurate tuner cars of all the series, and few are as iconic as the orange Toyota Supra, driven by Paul Walker, at the end of the movie. The people at Just Driven have decided to recreate the iconic ride and they have F&F advisor, Craig Lieberman on-site, to give input.

The Supra's Six-Speed Manual Is a Weird Mix of BMW, ZF, and Toyota

The Supra’s Six-Speed Manual Is a Weird Mix of BMW, ZF, and Toyota

A few companies had their hands in the Supra’s six-speed manual, but all were consensual – we promise

Rumors of a manual transmission for the Toyota Supra have been floating around since the car was launched, but they really started to pick up steam in early 2022. We first learned that there might be a catch and/or limited availability, and then a leak exposed a little more information about it. By the time April 2022 came around, Toyota revealed that the manual transmission was coming, and by the end of the month, it revealed the new 2023 Toyota Supra with the availability of a manual transmission. Of course, with the Supra being so closely related to the BMW Z4, which is available with a manual transmission, it seems a little silly that Toyota would take so long to add it to the options menu. As it turns out, though, there was a damn good reason.
