1988 Toyota MR2
The Toyota MR2 was a well-known sports car that redefined what cheap fun was. Often referred to as the “poor man’s Ferrari” the MR2 utilized a mid-engined design and a short wheelbase. Enthusiasts were taken aback by the excellent cockpit design and the bulletproof driving characteristics that the car offered up. The MR2 also had something very special which was excellent reliability. There are even many examples of this car on the road (via Car & Driver).
The MR2 had the stellar build quality and reliability to make it a legend, but it also had the performance. Even though EVs are going to be the thing of the future it wouldn’t be surprising to see a great number of MR2s still on the road. The car was well-built in every way and exemplified why a fun driving experience doesn’t have to be expensive.
