Meh Car Monday: All Hail The Toyota Solara, The Fun Car Without The Fun Meh Car Monday: All Hail The Toyota Solara, The Fun Car Without The Fun

I was driving around the other day when a car caught my attention, and not in the usual way. Normally, cars catch my eye by virtue of them being interesting or unusual, or compelling in some striking way. This car caught my eye because my brain has been damaged by writing these Meh Car articles for over a year, and…

These Japanese Automakers Have Fascinating Histories Behind Their Names These Japanese Automakers Have Fascinating Histories Behind Their Names

By now, we know that there are more accurate ways to pronounce the names of Japanese automakers than the ones that we dumb Americans have been using. Mazda, for instance, is pronounced “Matsuda” in Japan. But did you know that there are also very fascinating historical and cultural reasons behind some of these names?

An Arizona mechanic named Nick Dawson just scored the “barn find” of the century: a 1993 Toyota MR2 Turbo with less than 1,500 miles on the clock. But getting the car wasn’t easy, because it had been stolen from the dealer 25 years prior.

This Lifted Prius Trolls Jeeps This Lifted Prius Trolls Jeeps

The Toyota Prius has been written off for years by enthusiasts as too slow and dull to be any fun, but thanks to a Russian lift kit and a can-do attitude, a team who goes by “The Regenerates” finally made theirs fun. They took their Prius to the Gambler 500—the insane navigational rally for cheap, impractical cars—and…

After Fatal Uber Crash, Toyota To Build A New Private Autonomous Car Testing Facility  After Fatal Uber Crash, Toyota To Build A New Private Autonomous Car Testing Facility 

The auto industry has treaded lightly after a self-driving Uber fatally struck a pedestrian in Arizona. Toyota, for its part, hasn’t conducted autonomous driving tests since, and now the automaker’s looking to work out more complicated autonomous driving scenarios away from the public in a new private facility set to…

The New Toyota Supra Has Been Spotted With Horrible Dual-Tone Wheels  The New Toyota Supra Has Been Spotted With Horrible Dual-Tone Wheels 

Another camouflaged test car for the new Toyota Supra has been spotted, this time wearing what are likely production-ready wheels that are a ten-spoke, dual-tone black and silver look. How disappointing.

If you’ve been drowning out the sound of your own tears with Katy Perry’s “The One That Got Away” since one of the auto industry’s most iconic cars, a nearly perfect 1994 Toyota Supra with under 5,700 miles on it, sold to someone else last month, you’ll be happy to hear it’s available again. The sale fell through.

The Story Behind That Hilarious Toyota Corolla Craigslist Ad The Story Behind That Hilarious Toyota Corolla Craigslist Ad

It’s extremely hard to be funny in the written word, so much so that you should probably not even try. Which makes this Craigslist ad all the more remarkable, because it is very funny. So much so that we’re contravening an unofficial Jalopnik policy of not posting Zany Craigslist Ads to this website.

The Classic Japanese Car You Want Is Shooting Up In Value The Classic Japanese Car You Want Is Shooting Up In Value

I got quite a bit of my love of cars from my father, but the people his age that I knew never seemed to understand why I loved Toyota Supras, Mazda rotary engines and various examples of how Nissan used to give a damn. But the people who did grow up appreciating these kinds of cars are now after them in a big way, and…

How To Boost A Second-Gen Toyota MR2 Without Blowing It Up How To Boost A Second-Gen Toyota MR2 Without Blowing It Up

Looking for a good SW20-generation Toyota MR2 on Craigslist is a tough job, as it’s a virtual minefield of failures and sadness. But this bright blue one built by Prime Driven isn’t. It’s a little gem with 270 horsepower at the crank, and here’s how they did it without blowing up.

The 2019 Toyota Supra 'Won't Be A Cheap Car' The 2019 Toyota Supra 'Won't Be A Cheap Car'

The Toyota Supra is back! And beyond that, we know... almost nothing of substance. We know it was co-developed with BMW and shares a platform and powertrain with the new Z4, that a racing version will also happen, it won’t have a manual gearbox, and it won’t hit showrooms until 2019. And while we also don’t know…

Toyota's Press Notes For The 1988 Carina Were Insanely Detailed Toyota's Press Notes For The 1988 Carina Were Insanely Detailed

I assumed on some level that car engineers think about everything when assembling a car, even things like the proper place at which the ignition switch should start to turn. And yet! It’s fascinating to actually see it in action, like on the 1988 Toyota Carina, which was the focus of Toyota engineers’ ever-loving,…

The Toyota Land Cruiser Utility Is The Basic Stripped-Out Diesel Manual SUV Of Your Dreams The Toyota Land Cruiser Utility Is The Basic Stripped-Out Diesel Manual SUV Of Your Dreams

If I have one single complaint about the Lexus GX (and there is ONLY ONE), it’s that it’s too... Lexus-y. Toyota, amazingly, seems to agree with my dumb opinions. That’s why the world now has this thing, the Toyota Land Cruiser Utility Commercial, complete with a diesel engine, a six-speed manual and not much else.

Good morning and never stop dreaming, like this 1984 Toyota Space Cruiser that made it all the way to space.

Meh Car Monday: Behold The Tranquil Void Of The Toyota Avalon Meh Car Monday: Behold The Tranquil Void Of The Toyota Avalon

Normally, the cars I pick for Meh Car Monday were never originally designed to be meh, as such. Mehness just sort of happened to them. I’m not so sure about the Toyota Avalon, though, since the car seems to have as its main goal an almost funereal quality of nothingness, disguised as “comfort.” The Toyota Avalon isn’t…

Toyota Put A TV In Your Dash Back In 1985

Today’s carmakers are thrilled with all of the new features they can integrate into their digital dashboards but all I can think of is how Toyota put a working TV right in front of your face all the way back in the Bubble Era. Well, not in front of your face exactly.
