These Toyota Models Are Considered Sports Cars (And This Is The Fastest One)

These Toyota Models Are Considered Sports Cars (And This Is The Fastest One)
Unlike Ferrari or Lamborghini, Toyota models probably aren’t the first thing that comes to mind when you imagine a sports car. However, Toyota has been producing sports vehicles for more than 50 years, beginning with the Sports 800 in the 1960s. This little, lightweight car, known as the Yota-Hachi, had a 790cc engine and lay the groundwork for Toyota’s future sports cars. The Sports 800’s performance, particularly in domestic motorsports like the Fuji 24-hour race, was the first sign that Toyota could seriously commit to building fast and thrilling cars.
Toyota went on to expand on the sports car concept models like the 2000GT, which made big moves internationally after being featured in the James Bond film “You Only Live Twice.” Soon after its release, the MR2 hit the road in the 1980s, followed by the turbocharged Celica. By 2007, Toyota had founded the Gazoo Racing (GR) division and established itself as a sports car manufacturer. GR, especially, got Toyota into the motorsports spotlight, notably in the FIA World Rally Championship, World Endurance Championship, and Dakar Rally.
In fact, if you visit the Toyota’s sports cars page on its official website, you’ll see three models that Toyota considers sports cars. Which models are they, and how fast do they go? That’s what we are here to find out.
