Leaked Memo Says GR Corolla Will Arrive At Dealers Sooner Than We Thought

Leaked Memo Says GR Corolla Will Arrive At Dealers Sooner Than We Thought

The GR Corolla is getting here on time, we just need to be patient

As a result of an internal memo from Toyota getting leaked onto the GR Corolla Forum, we now know that the GR Corolla will be hitting showrooms in America in October of this year. This lines up with Toyota’s statement from back in March that the base Core level GR Corolla would go on sale in late 2022. However, it is unclear if this means all trims of the GR Corolla will be on sale or just the base Core trim as the leaked memo does not specify either way.

This Ultra-Rare 1967 Toyota 2000GT is a True Japanese Classic

This 55-year-old coupe could be worth a Lamborghini Urus

Before the whole era of the Supra, which dominated the two-door coupe world for decades, Toyota’s first take on the sports car category started with the 2000GT. Only 351 examples were built in partnership with Yamaha, and thanks to BaT, we have one up for auction. This is a unique, super-rare car with a few refurbishments and a clean Arizona title.

Rendering: An Alpina-Branded Toyota Supra - It's a Love or Hate Affair

Rendering: An Alpina-Branded Toyota Supra - It’s a Love or Hate Affair

Unfortunately it will forever be just a rendering!

Alpina pretty much needs no introduction. For nearly six decades it has been making BMW cars better. Now BMW is working on finalizing a deal that will bring Alpina in house, which means in the future things will look a little bit different.

In 2019 Toyota launched the fifth generation Supra, and while many might be impressed by the quality of the sports car, it is in fact just a rebadged BMW Z4. Well, nearly anyway. So, with the Supra actually being a BMW, what if Alpina was to offer its own interpretation of the compact sports car? It’s okay, go ahead and get mad. I’ll wait.

Which one is better - The Manual Toyota Supra 3.0 or the new GR 86?

Which one is better - The Manual Toyota Supra 3.0 or the new GR 86?

They both offer a great driving experience for what they are

When Toyota unveiled the new generation Supra back in 2019 it only offered it with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. It’s an alright gearbox, but a true sports car at least offers the option of a manual transmission. Toyota needed almost three years to understand that, and, at the beginning of 2022, Toyota finally started offering the Supra with the long-waited six-speed manual transmission. Now, the question is: if you want to buy a Toyota sports car with a manual transmission should you go for the updated Supra or for the recently launched GR86? The guys over TopGear try to answer that question for you in their latest episode.

These Are the Most Powerful Three-Cylinder Engines in New Cars

These Are the Most Powerful Three-Cylinder Engines in New Cars

As it turns out, cars with three-cylinder engines can be pretty fun to drive!

Gone are the days when three-cylinder engines were only meant for urban commutes. These engines were light and focused more on fuel efficiency than performance. However, things are changing, and with upsizing not an option anymore, thanks to stricter emission regulations, automakers are making the best they can with fewer cylinders and lower displacements. Companies don’t just offer them with forced induction now; they even pair them with electric motors and batteries to generate all the oomph possible. Believe it or not, there are a handful of high-performance three-cylinder engines that can blow larger engines out of the water.

The Toyota GR Corolla MORIZO Edition Has Some Serious Bespoke Performance Add-Ons

The Toyota GR Corolla MORIZO Edition Has Some Serious Bespoke Performance Add-Ons

They include more power, more grip, and no back seats.

Toyota made waves in September 2020 when the GR Yaris went into production. It was the first true homologation hot hatch we had seen in decades, but Americans thought there was just one problem with it-we weren’t getting it. So, to appease us and make even more money, Toyota crammed the four-wheel-drive, the gearbox, engine, brakes, and everything else they could take from a GR Yaris into a Corolla Hatchback.

As a result, the GR Corolla now exists, and while it only matters to those in the U.S., it is doubtlessly a good car nonetheless. Now though, Toyota is making the GR Corolla even more extreme with the MORIZO edition. Only 200 examples will be produced, and all of them have real performance-enhancing modifications installed and are for the 2023 model year.

This is the third option in the GR86 lineup, but only 860 units will be built

It’s called simply the 2023 GR86 Special Edition, and it is based on the GR86 Premium grade and will be limited to only 860 units.

This Widebody Supra Has Fast and Furious Written All Over It

It completely transforms the look of the Supra

When Toyota announced the relaunch of the Supra name, everyone was hoping that the legendary “Fast and Furious” spirit of the A80 would also be revived. Of course, many people ended up disappointed when they realized that the new Supra is nothing more than just a rebadged BMW Z4. But, where Toyota failed, tuners are trying to make things right and some of them really end up making the Supra looking like it is ready to play a leading role once again.

We finally see how the manual and automatic Nissan Z perform against each other and their direct competitors

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.

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.

Not your typical big-turbo Supra, this 1994 example has been restored to factory specification and demonstrates great pace on the German Autobahn

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.

The Toyota GR Yaris With Straight Pipes Sounds Like An Epic Mix Between BMW M3 And Alfa Romeo Giulia QV

Who knew the Toyota GR Yaris could sound so epic with straight pipes! An inline-three that sounds like a six-cylinder

The Toyota GR Yaris is one of the most bonkers hot hatchbacks to come out in recent times. This Japanese pocket rocket is, actually, a homologation rally car, and although Toyota hasn’t managed to go racing with it, just yet, the GR Yaris already proved quicker than some of the most iconic cars, ever made. Its small, turbocharged, inline-three has one of the highest specific outputs, but, what you didn’t know is how it sounds with straight pipes.

Toyota Gears Up for Change with Something Unexpectedly Opposite

Toyota Gears Up for Change with Something Unexpectedly Opposite

The manual transmission for the Toyota Supra isn’t the only thing the brand is cooking up

After more than a year of rumors, Toyota finally confirmed that the Toyota Supra would be offered with a manual gearbox. It’s also said that a Supra GRMN with AWD is in the works, but all of this has been mostly overshadowed by the launch of the 2023 Toyota GR Corolla. With 300 horsepower, AWD, and a glorious six-speed manual transmission, it’s the ultimately little hot hatch. But, is it enough? Well, as it turns out, Toyota is cooking up something that might change the very nature of the GR Corolla, GR Supra, and even the GR Yaris.
