Who's to be chosen by Toyota as the partner to reviving the MR2?

After successfully to bring back the Supra sports sedan recently, Toyota is rumored to be reviving its another iconic model, the Toyota MR2. Just to refresh the memory, the Toyota MR2 was a mid-engined compact sports coupe, it first launched in 1984 and discontinued in 2007 after made in three generations.

As quoted of Carscoops, Toyota Chief Engineer, Tetsuya Tada admited to be interested in working with Posrche. The German car manufacturer is considered as the perfect partner to reviving the MR2.

"Porsche! In our opinion is really the perfect partner for a mid-engined compact sports car," said Tada.

As we all knew, previously in the 2011 the Japanese automotive giant partnered with its compatriot Subaru to bring back the Toyota GT 86 sports car (the production version of the FT-86 concept) into real. And again recently in 2019, this company in collaboration with BMW successfully in making the 5th generation Supra back to speeding on the streets.

"In theory, Porsche could have made the latest MR2 model. This is after we thought, the previous model featured a mid-engined layout, as well as the Porsche Boxster and Cayman. This is ideal," Tada said.

"However, we do not know what Weissach (Porsche's research center) is thinking about. So for now, that is only a wishful thinking," he said.  As a person, Chief Engineer Tetsuya Tada may freely give his opinion, but in reality it is not that simple.
Even though, this indicates that Toyota is aware that one of the best ways to re-produce its legendary vehicles is to collaborate with other auto manufacturers. And whoever is Toyota's choice to be its partner later, that is the best choice to revive the iconic Toyota MR2.
