Are you a fan of affordable sports cars, but not sure if the Orlando Toyota 86 is the right fit for you? Then get ready… it’s rumored that Toyota is about to bring back the best-selling Toyota Celica. They recently filed to renew their patent on their name, which is a pretty solid indicator that they’re planning on bringing this fan favorite out of retirement!

Will the Toyota Celica be rejoining the ranks?

It’s been rumored for a while that Toyota is working on creating a trio of sports cars – the Orlando Toyota 86, the Toyota Supra (which they’re working on with BMW if our facts are straight), and now the Toyota Celica. It’s a well-rounded group that offers a wide range of affordability and performance, so there’s something for every driver in the bucket.

So what makes the Orlando Toyota Celica such a favorite of sports car drivers? Here are some of the highlights we love about this popular ride:

  • It was available in a variety of body styles – you could get your hands on a versatile hatchback, a sporty coupe, or even a convertible for sunny days. It was so easy to personalize your ride to your drive time preferences.
  • It had a long run – this popular sports car was brought to market in 1973 and wasn’t retired until 2006. The only reason it was retired was because Toyota wanted to make room for new and upcoming vehicles… the Toyota Celica was definitely still a best-selling option!
  • Although the Toyota Celica had a 4-cylinder engine, it still offered an exciting and sports car performance combined with exceptional fuel efficiency. And on top of that, Toyota introduced a turbo-charged option in 1988 that upped horsepower to 190. We’re betting that the new model will offer at least that or more.

It’s no surprise to us that Toyota would want to revive this much-loved sports car. However, it’s just one of the three options that supposedly will be on the table for you in the near future. If you want a powerhouse sports car, that BMW-Toyota collaboration of the new Toyota Supra should suit your fancy… and if affordability with a seriously sporty style is what you’re looking for, then get behind the wheel of the existing Orlando Toyota 86.
