Toyota MR2/MR-S/Sera/Paseo 1986-2002

Mid-engined MR2s can’t seriously be considered a ‘mini-Ferrari’, or can they? Park an early AW11 alongside a Mondial and the later SW20 version next to a Testarossa there are similarities.

They end of course with the money you will spend to own a Mister Two, with locally-delivered SW20 cars in the $8-12,000 range and excellent Japanese-spec Turbos sometimes reaching $20,000.

One to watch is the supercharged 1987-89 AW11 which wasn’t sold new here but they are trickling in at $16-20,000.

The MR-Spyder is the only full convertible MR2 derivative and worth a look at $12,000. While MR2 numbers in our market are solid, the gull-wing Sera and conventional Paseo both look headed for extinction.
