This is looking like a great deal with current bidding around $12k on this 1993 Toyota MR2 Turbo For Sale on eBay with 23k miles!
quote from sellers’ eBay auction:
Up for auction is quite possibly the lowest mileage MKII Turbo in existence with only 23,500 +/- miles!
A one-owner car, I bought new from Eddy’s Toyota in Wichita KS on January 27, 1993. Absolutely bone-stock, the garage-kept car has never been raced, rarely driven in inclement weather, and never involved in a major accident. The car-fax report is clean.
Options are as follows: Red, Turbo, T-Tops, Limited Slip Diff, Black Interior, Manual 8-Way Cloth Seats, Power Steering / Windows / Locks, A/C, AM/FM/CD/Cassette, Factory Subwoofer, Fog Lights.
The car is like new mechanically. The engine runs smooth, strong and quiet, with no sign of any smoking. The turbo spools up nicely under load. The clutch is smooth and the transmission shifts very easily. The brakes are firm, and steering tight. The AC still blows ice cold, and the car did go in for Toyota’s special service campaign SSC-PO1 for the A/C expansion valve replacement. I get between 26 and 38 MPG depending on driving. All electric power accessories function as intended. The factory AM/FM/CD/Cassette (remember cassettes?) work and sound great.
The interior is like new, and still smells new. No rips, tears, fading, stains or cracking. The sun covers for the t-tops and factory pouches to stow the glass tops when removed are included and like new. The factory floor-mats have just slight heel impressions on the drivers side only.
What more could you ask for in a car that might go for under $15k?
The VWVortex Archivist recently featured the scanned version of the old road test from Car and Driver magazine on this fantastic car.
Great modern-classic and opportunity to see for yourself if it was everything Toyota promised it to be.
