Old-School vs Modern: Watch a Stock Nissan R35 GT-R Nismo Try To Show The Highly Customized R34 GT-R and Toyota Supra Who’s The Boss!
‘Officially Gassed – OG’ came up with an interesting series of races that involved three enthusiast cars – the Nissan R34 GT-R, the Toyota Supra, and the Nissan R35 GT-R Nismo. The R34 and the Supra are highly customized and make a lot more power than the stock output, but the R35 – the most modern of the lot – is bone stock and makes the least power. Which car do you think is going to come out of this with the bragging rights?
Rocket Bunny’s New Body Kit Makes The Toyota 86 Look Very Angry
If you follow the tuner scene, you are, most likely, familiar with the Rocket Bunny body kits. Originating from Japan, the Rocket Bunny body kits are as striking and as aggressive as possible for a road-going car. Kei Miura’s wide-body designs can make even the most docile-looking car look like a road-going predator. As soon as we learned of the new Toyota GR 86, we knew it was a matter of time before a dedicated Rocket Bunny kit was in the making. Now, we finally have images of the Rocket Bunny 86, and we like what we see.
This is Probably The Strangest Toyota MR2 You’ve Ever Seen
There aren’t many cars that offer a mid-engine layout at an affordable price. The Toyota MR2 is one of the last to do so, despite the last generation (1999-2007) lacking the previous one’s Ferrari-inspired design language. Motor1 recently covered a VM180 Zagato – one of only 100 made – that was auctioned off in Japan. No, we are acquainting you with another rare version – the MR2 Caserta by Modellista – of which 150 were made, and now, one is listed for sale at Eclection Specialty Auto Sales.
The Toyota GR Corolla Will Happen, But You Will Have To Wait A Bit More
There’s no denying that we are spoiled for choice when it comes to hot hatchbacks. The Honda Civic Type-R, Hyundai Veloster N, and VW Golf GTIare currently some of the most popular global models out there, but now there’s another one on the way. It seems Toyota Gazoo Racing is not done with launching hot versions of boring cars and a GR Corolla is on the way. However, it’s not going to arrive when initially expected.
2022 Toyota GR 86
Entering its second generation, the GR 86 has uplifting expectations as a coupe, and carries forward quite a few elements which make it stick to “the roots”. And that, we all know that the GR 86 shares a lot of DNA with the Subaru BRZ, including the same chassis and the engine, but some would argue that the former is lighter and manageable in most conditions. For the 2022 model year, the 86 features a flat-four engine layout but the size has gone up to 2.4-liter and it is still naturally aspirated. The new 86 is offered with your choice of a manual or automatic transmission. Apart from the mechanics, the coupe comes loaded with tech and the cabin gets significant updates to give that new-car feeling. The Gazoo Racing team has put up a big effort to make the GR 86 stand out in the crowd and and it’s fairly affordable for what it offers.
This Rendering Shows What a Modern-Day Toyota GR Starlet Could Look Like
There are certain cars we would love to have modern-day versions of. The list is progressively growing, as manufacturers shift their focus from fun cars to crossovers, SUVs, and EVs. That said, some of our favorite cars are getting a spiritual successor in the form of virtual renderings and this time, it’s Top Gear Philippines that brings back an iconic and somewhat obscure (to some) Japanese hot hatch – the Toyota Starlet Glanza V.

The Toyota Supra in Forza Horizon 5 Is Going to Be Epic
The new Toyota Supra is nothing if not controversial. Meant to be a spiritual successor to the legendary Mk.3 Supra, it’s extreme ties to the BMW Z4 didn’t rub a lot of enthusiasts right. To this day, we’re still not sure if the new Supra is even as tunable as the Mk.3, at least not without some crazy 2JZ transplant, anyway. Regardless of what’s possible in real life, the new Toyota Supra is included as a day-one car in Forza Horizon 5 and, so far, it looks like it’ll at least live up to the reputation it’s meant to have in the game.
Watch The GR Yaris Spank The Legendary Toyota Supra MK4 and the Celica GT-Four In a Drag Race
The Toyota Supra needs no introduction. The 20th-century model came with the famed 2JZ engine and was every kid’s dream car and some point back then. It was Brian’s drive in the Fast and Furious movies and was one of the reasons for its popularity amongst kids. In fact, that car fetched over half-a-million bucks at an auction recently.
The Supra Mk4 was brought to a drag strip by Carwow to take on the Celica GT-Four and the GR Yaris. The GR Yaris, with all the modern tech, beat the Celica and the Supra, but how did the latter two fare against each other?
Paul Walker’s ’10-second’ Orange Supra Fetched $550,000 At Auction!
Do you remember Paul Walker’s 10-second Supra from the first Fast & Furious movies? The one that was painted in a mesmerizing orange shade from the first movie in the franchise? Yeah, well, that orange car was part of the Barrett-Jackson auction held on June 18 and 19, 2021 in Las Vegas and it sold for over half a million bucks! How about that!
The Toyota GR Supra Might Offer Better Performance Than the GR86, But Is It A Better Toyota?
By now, it’s painfully obvious that Toyota isn’t interested in reliving the glorious 1990s. Back in those days, they had the SW20 MR-2/MR-S, the Celica GT-Four and SS3, and let’s not forget the venerable Supra Mk IV. However, sports cars cost a lot to develop and their market niche is insignificant compared to something like a Corolla. You can see why, nowadays, Toyota has two front-engine rear-wheel-drive sports cars and both of which are not pure Toyota products – the GR Supra and GR86. The latter, though, is more worthy of the Toyota badge and here’s why.

Toyota Is Expanding its GR Sub-Brand in the Best Way
Gazoo Racing, Toyota performance sub-brand responsible for cars like the Toyota GR Supra, GR Yaris, and the new GR 86 will be laying its hands on more cars in the future.

2022 Toyota Supra A91-CF
The A91 Toyota Supra has been the center of controversy ever since early 2020, when Toyota announced that the 2021 model would benefit from more power and better engineering. It got even worse when it was announced that Europeans wouldn’t get the updated 2021 model, while Toyota announced its [justification for improving the Supra its second year->art188439 on the market, despite the shaft it gave first-year buyers. Beyond this, however, the Supra has proven itself to be worthy of the Supra name, and the latest addition to the 2022 lineup gives it the carbon-fiber look that it deserves.

A Very Rare Toyota MR2 TRD 2000GT Is Up For Auction
There are a few 1990s cars referred to as "The poor man’s Ferrari". The Toyota MR2 (SW20) certainly deserves it, as despite not costing nearly as much as a Ferrari, it bears striking resemblance to the Ferrari 348. With that being said, Toyota did offer a version of the MR2 that was capable of humiliating both the 348 and the F355 that came after it. TRD – Toyota’s racing division – did with the MR2 exactly the same thing they did with the Supra. They built 35 highly modified, wide-body MR2 cars, dubbed the TRD 2000GT. And now, one of them is about to be auctioned off.
