I am not opposed to joint venture efforts, which are the nature of the auto business these days it seems. But I do not like the cynical marketing of resurrecting classic models like Supra and MR2 for these efforts. The original cars were a product of Toyota’s individual design and engineering vision. I was fine with their last Toyobaru, but I would have been mad if they called it a Celica.
Yes, this is an irrational Toyota fanboy take. But all fandom is irrational, so there it is.
