Dear Mr. Murray,

It has come to our attention that your T.50 Hypercar (pictured above) looks just like our 2003 MR2 Spyder.

Seeing this clear design ripoff, we have no choice but to... ask if you can produce a cut-price version that we can put “MR2” badges on and sell it at Toyota dealerships.

We can’t be bothered to develop one ourselves and it looks like you’ve done all the heavy lifting for us. We’ll just put in a 1.8-liter non-turbo 4-cylinder engine and call it a day.

Please let us know how soon you’d like to partner up on this project. We’re eager to outsource to you.

Signed,

Toyota
