These are the Worst Generations of Your Favorite Cars

“Great car in many respects… and downright beautiful but got the MR2 formula completely wrong. It was a great car but a *bad* MR2.

“Why? Overly complex (driving), overly expensive, compromised handling, HEAVY, and ruined the expectations of what the MR2 *should* be in the chase for more boost. Why? Because the Supra was already there. The Celica GTS-4 was a better moar power option. The turbo completely compromised the dynamics (Supercharger would have been better).

“AW11 – Fun, light, cheap. MSRP of less than a GT86 intoday money.

“SW20 (turbo) MSRP of MORE than a Supra 6pot Turbo in today money.

“ZZW30 returned to the AW11 formula, did it cheaply, and did so within modern requirements (no more popups and crash safety concerns). It did everything better than the SW20 save for power and (issues with looks that have actually aged better than most everything else from the early 2000s) but because it was not the boosted moar turbo (that would make it overly expensive) it wasn’t as well received.

“The SW20 killed the affordable mid-engine sportscar.”

If you’re claiming it’s the reason we don’t get affordable mid-engined sports cars today, then I’m sure the SW20 deserves a spot on this list.
