1994 Toyota MR2 Turbo aka The Holy Grail!
***Please read full ad before bidding and ask questions! I have re-applied for a new Massachusetts clean and clear title in my name which will be in within 30 days of auction end. The car will be sold with bill of sale and then title will be sent when it comes in. I'll gladly store the car for you as well until title arrives if preferred. Again, will come with a clear MA title but there may be up to a 30 day delay before the clear MA title arrives. I apologize for the delay but we are at the mercy of the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles on this one. Will show receipt of title application and photo copy of prior clear MA title with sale. We want to expedite the sale before the snow flies in good old New England!
So if you are viewing this ad you know exactly what you are looking at. The year is correct. This is a from the factory, 1994 Toyota MR2 Turbo in Super Red with tan leather interior, t-tops and a 5-speed transmission. Only a handful of MR2's came into the states in 1994 and 1995 (I believe the number to be about 900 per year) and not a lot of those were turbo cars. By late 1993 they sorted out a lot of handling issues and made improvements so the 1994 and 1995 cars are very hard to come by.
This specific car was a two owner car. The previous owner bought the car with 48,000 miles on it in 1998 and drove it to it's now 189,000 miles. The car was loving maintained and used for commuting as well as some track and autocross events. It has high mileage because it was a commuter but you would never know from the way the car drives and pulls. The engine is smooth through the power band and when the turbo spools up she takes off like a rocket ship.
Let's talk good, bad, ugly and reality:
We had a few options with this one. Since it was so rare, we thought we would fix it up, get the rockers repaired, do the body work and sell it as a perfect car with high mileage. Because of the mileage, and the nature of the car..... we decided to sell it as we found it. No sugar-coating, no extreme buff jobs that last a day, no engine detail, no low grade interior repair. The new owner of the car will know the cars flaws and can correct them as needed depending on how they intend on using it (i.e. concours restoration, track car, modifies street car, stock driver).
The nitty-gritty (the bad and the ugly):
189,000 miles
Front lower spoiler split (currently has 200mph tape on it) *bumper cover not damage or torn
Rocker panels have rust/rot (floor boards and undercarriage good)
Rust bubbles in front of targa top (see pictures)
Other small surface rust under paint (see pictures)
Car will need suspension bushings replaced (knocks and rattles - included with sale is complete poly-urethane bushing kit, see pictures)
Drivers seat leather/bolster has chunk missing
Occasional intercooler fan warning light comes on (engine temp stays regular)
The good:
Apart from rockers/body overall great for a 22 year old New England car.
2 prior owners
Paint still shines
Engine and transmission smooth, strong, fast (no shifting issues)
Lightened flywheel
Stainless catback exhaust (not too loud as it was a mature owner/commuter/weekend racer owned)
Comes with BBS's staggered wheels with great tires
Comes with two extra matching BBS wheels
Comes with 4 Kosei K-1 Racing wheels with smoked autocross tires
Comes with factory MR2 (original) wheels with snow tires
Poly urethane suspension bushing kit included
Factory radio included
All electrics work
T-tops do not leak
Again, this is a high mileage car that runs and drives great. It's a rare beast and needs rockers replaced, bushings (supplied installed), and a full detail and service. We are showing it as we found it and are representing the car as it is. Please check all of the pictures. They show the trouble areas as well as the true beauty of this car. Every time we take it out, it turns heads. It rides like it is on rails and sounds just right. We'd love to see this car go to a true enthusiast that wants to own the holy grail of MR2's and isn't afraid to get there hands dirty!!! I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across the country but you are going to want to bring a truck to pick up the extra 10 wheels and boxes of goodies that go along.

The car is located in Acton, Massachusetts and again will come with a clean Massachusetts title in my name but there could be up to a 30 day delay before the title arrives.
