My younger brother recently moved to Japan, and I had promised him a cool car to experience the JDM lifestyle over there. However, between the time the move was planned and when it happened (due to Covid) the cars I had earmarked for him doubled in value in many cases. Now instead of looking for “cool”, I’m looking Read more

Since you don’t even know it’s slideshow until you hover over the lead image (edit: or see that easy to miss blue button at the bottom of the article), for the longest time I thought Jalopnik was just throwing up articles after writing the intro paragraph and going, “Well, that seems good enough.”

Hers is the Performance, not the long range. .95g is a bit more respectable, just below my BRZ tS at .98g. But in terms of feel, having the center of gravity so low is pretty crazy.

Yep. I’ve got a collection of classic Toyotas I used to take to a local Toyota dealer I trusted for light maintenance. Since I wanted to keep bringing them business, I asked if they would be able to service my BRZ, since it’s literally identical to an 86 in every way except for the front bumper, headlights, and some Read more

I just want a legit electric enthusiast car, preferably with a 2-door sports car body. I don’t need a back seat and extra doors to drag around. Unless they’re in front of a wagon-style rear end, but we all know that’s never happening in an affordable price range.

If Toyota responds to American enthusiasts excitement and subsequent disappointment over Toyota building a legit performance car completely in house and then not selling it here in the form of the GR Yaris, by saying “Here! have another Toyobaru to go with your existing Toyobaru and Zupra!;” I will be convinced that Read more
